How to Make Your Table A-Maize-Zing

Is being a plate-a-holic really a thing?  Do they have a pill for that?  Or, does it require months of therapy to get past the desire to place a box of dishes into your buggy at Wal-Mart when you see the exact color you’ve needed for months (and discounted for cheap)?

The yellow dinners are the plates in question.  The color is maize…yellow, for short.  (Wink.)  White napkins with a yellow ruffle top the plate.

I decided to place the acorn/leaf plates on the square rather than my usual diamond.

The square alignment hints a repeat of the place mats.  I realized last weekend that I haven’t used the acorn table-cloth this year.

The weather has been so nice.  I still wish we could have some rain.  But, the waiting game continues.

The temps are perfect for riding bikes, and the white pumpkin sits ready for a ride.

It’s turned creamier over time.  It looks more like maize, a color similar to the glider cushions and the dinner plates.

I found another way to use the insulators.  These two, you’ve seen before.

The extra insulator nests nicely inside a canning jar.

Wouldn’t it be pretty with colored water inside?

The smaller glasses add a light shade of maize.  The small glass set came from Tuesday Morning, and the green stems are from Dollar Tree at a third the cost of the smaller glasses.  (Isn’t Dollar Tree the best?)

Remember last week’s tablescape pictures had only green in those trees?  Now, we’ve got a tinge of coloring.  Yay, fall!

I set this table in the cool of the morning.  You noticed the darkness of the pictures, right?  And then the sun came over the patio and drove the roof shadow away.

Don’t you love the sunshine on cool fall days?

Final Note:  I thought you might want to meet Ann-Margaret from Red Robbin.  She has a crafting blog and Etsy site.  Ann-Margaret asked me to tell y’all about her giveaway.  Register here for her $150 JoAnn gift card giveaway, and take a look around at her fun projects while you’re there.  Good luck!

Just wondering…does JoAnn sell plates?  (Wink again!)

Blessings~

      Thanks, Ann-Margaret. It’s a table-cloth that I bought at a favorite home accents store in my old neighborhood. How I miss that place! Anyway, you’re welcome, and I hope lots of readers head over to enter your giveaway. Thanks again for including us. 🙂

    Does JoAnn sell plates.
    That was a good one my plate-aholic friend Hahahaha

    I had plates on my mind before bed. So much so I was googling Christmas plates. I have a plate/charger problem. I didn’t used to before I came HERE. Hahaha

    My excuse is that if I am going to be a blogger I need plates and chargers! Right? Lol at least now I learned I front need 12 of everything. I can mix and match.

    I like this table scape. You have so many good ideas.

    And I am glad you didn’t fry up your laptop!
    I have mine on one of those plastic TV trays that you can slide up to the couch real close. It does have a slide out drink holder but I don’t use it. And there is really no room for a cup on the table. So I am safe.

    I am glad you learned a lesson and it was not a HARD lesson. You got mercy there girlie! Lol

    ST is off the rest of the week. Hubby is on staycation all week. Hopefully we have big progress. So far he has done the yardand we put up a new bathroom wall cabinet. I have gotten a lot of eBay Christmas stuff listed. I also made my first crocheted Trolls inspired kids hat. It’s so cute! I have not yet seen the movie. But I want to. I love kids movies.

    ST and I noticed something. Now that it is light out when we get up we are not as tired in the morning! Anybody else feel that way?

    Happy jump day!

      Well, have I created a monsterette, or what? Thank you, Robin. I certainly did receive mercy. I hope you get everything done that you’ve planned for this week. It’s a great start so far! HH just brought his phone to show me a pic someone sent him of the camel on the commercial “It’s Hump Day!”, and it says, “It’s Trump Day!” The crazyness is already starting. 🙂

      Oh, I forgot to mention that the time change is having an opposite effect on me, for some reason. I’ve never been this way before, but my body clock is all confused now. I’m not getting enough sleep, bottom line. Anyone else?
