FUN FATHER'S DAY TABLESCAPE

*
GREETINGS SWEET FRIENDS,
*
HOPE TODAY FINDS YOU WELL AND HAPPY
AND
FULL OF ENERGY AND ENTHUSIASM!!
*
AM HAVING A FAIRLY PRODUCTIVE DAY:
GETTING SOME BUSINESS PHONE CALLS 
DONE , AND GOING THRU SOME OLD
MAGAZINES AND FILING ONES I WANT 
TO KEEP AND PITCHING EVERYTHING ELSE.
*
DON'T YOU JUST LOVE CLEANING STUFF
OUT???  I HAVE BEEN GOING TO DO IT FOR
 AWHILE BUT JUST NEVER GOT TO IT, SO 
SINCE I WAS BORED CAUSE OF MY ARM
LIMITATIONS YESTERDAY, I THOUGHT,
 LORD, THERE MUST BE SOMETHING 
PRODUCTIVE I CAN DO OR I MIGHT LOSE
MY MIND SOON, AND THE MAGAZINES 
CAME TO MIND.  I HAVE ALSO TAKEN SOME 
PICS OF PRETTY THINGS I FOUND........
MOSTLY FLOWERS, OF COURSE !!
*
I DECIDED TO DO A TABLESCAPE  
THURSDAY POST FOR TODAY.
*
AND NO, THIS ISN'T HUBBIES TIE,
IT IS HIS FATHER'S DAY TABLE
NAPKIN.
*
CUTE, HUH!!
HUBBY WAS IMPRESSED!!
*


*
HERE'S  THE SPECIAL GUYS PLACE!!

*



I DECIDED TO GO WITH A MOVIE  THEME



SINCE HUBBY LOVES WATCHING MOVIES 
AT HOME OR IN THE THEATRE.





*
I MADE THR LIL MARQUEE SIGN
AND THE TICKETS YOU'LL SEE
WITH PRINTMASTER.

*
*
HERE IS AN OVERVIEW OF THE MOVIE
VIGNETTE,  STACK OF DVD'S, POPCORN
(OF COURSE) WHAT IS A MOVIE WITHOUT
 POPCORN, IBC ROOTBEER, DARK CHOCOLATE
 (OF COURSE) HAVE TO BE HEART HEALTHY.
*
LATER I WAS THINKING I SHOULD HAVE
 USED COKE CAUSE IT WAS MORE
 COLORFUL, OH WELL!! LOL
*

*
FROM OPPOSITE END OF TABLE
*

*
THE STARS CAUSE HE IS THE STAR OF THIS SHOW!!
*
*
AND HE USUALLY  DOES KNOWS BEST!!
*
THIS PHOTO WAS ALTERED WITH
PHOTOSHOP CUT OUT AFFECT.
*

*
AND OF COURSE, ALL DINNERS NEED
A BIT OF AMBIANCE.
*
*
FILMGRAIN AFFECT, JUST FOR FUN
AND INTEREST!!
*
*
PICTURE WITH PALETTE KNIFE AFFECT.
TICKET SAID, "MY FATHER, MY BROTHER AND ME"

*
*
THIS TICKET WAS AT MY SON'S PLACE.
THESE WERE THE TICKETS I MADE ON
PRINTMASTER, THEN I LOOKED UP NAMES
 OF MOVIES THAT SEEMED TO BE POSITIVE
 ABOUT FATHER'S, AND TYPED THEM ON,
THEN CUT THEM OUT.
*
  I WANT TO TRY AND RENT THEM IN THE
 NEXT FEWS MONTHS
 AND SEE IF WE REALLY LIKE
 ANY OF THEM.  
*


*
THIS AFFECT IS PLASTIC WRAP
*


*
BET YOU CAN'T GUESS WHOSE PLACE
THIS WAS????
**
*
THIS WAS AT MY  MY DAUGHTER'S PLACE,
BUT IT COULD HAVE JUST AS WELL BEEN
AT MY SON'S, CAUSE THEY ARE BOTH SO
MUCH LIKE MY HUBBY IN  TEMPERATE.
*

*
THAT TICKET SAYS "FATHER OF THE BRIDE".
WE HAVE SEEN BOTH I AND II.  THEY ARE
GREAT MOVIES IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THEM.
I THINK THE LANGUAGE IS GOOD...... BUT
 I HAVE TO BE CAREFUL CAUSE WE HAVE
 A TV GUARDIAN THAT BLIPS OUT THE
CURSING, SO WE FORGET THAT CAUSE WE
 NEVER HEAR IT.
 AND WE LOVE IT, I MIGHT ADD.
*
*
THE END TO A GREAT DAY!!
*
THANKS FOR DROPPING BY
*
HAVE A SIMPLY MARVELOUS EVENING
MY FRIENDS.................
*
Be sure to go over to Susan's
at between naps on the porch
after 10 pm. tonight or tomorrow
and you can see all the great tablescape
ideas from other bloggers too.

HUGS, BLESSINGS 
 AND SUMMER FUN TO YOY ALL!

Hi Nellie! This is such a cute idea for a tablescape! I know your whole family loved it!
You are too clever! Love the tie napkins!!

Well, tomorrow at 12:00 I finally get my license! The certificate was delayed a day because it had the wrong zip code on it! How nuts! I did get the $15 back for overnight delivery, though! I have more to tell you but will tell you when we talk!

Tomorrow DeAnn is keeping Maddy for a few hours after we are done (we're going to Edgewater because they had the earliest appointment available) and I am having some "me" time. I have a couple of errands and then I may just go for a drive or visit one of my favorite spots. I don't know. I know I just could use some time.

Talk to you tomorrow!
Love you!
Becky

What a fun Father's Day table! I know you must have made some man's day! I really adore those necktie napkins. Too cute. Thanks for sharing and happy TT to you!

Johanna said...

Nellie, I love your ideas for Father day. Very creative. I am sure your husband felt very special and your kids loved it, too!
Greetings, Johanna

Bonnie said...

Nellie, this is so darn cute...love it and the movies and all the Dads we all know and love. I will be so happy when I see you are feeling better. How did that interview go? I am so far behind on my blogging and I want to get caught up. It seems that once a few days have passed the enthusiasm for doing one wanes. I like to keep it current but sometimes it is hard to do with life happening at a pretty fast clip these days.

Today I want to work on the parties that Jim has had over the last several days. Be well soon, OK?

Love and hugs, Bon

That is probably one of the cutest tables I've seen in a lonf time - especially for Father's Day. Makes me feel really bad for my sweet Hubbie. With my returning from Florida late Sat. night, Sunday was a bit "thrown together" for him. He was happy and felt loved, I'm sure but how nice it would have been to do something so special and personalized!

You definitely will be my go to girl for ideas when the next holiday comes around - ah ha, Fourth of July. Any great ideas?? Maybe you could share on tomorrow's Friday with Friends!

Take care - Jennifer

Barbara said...

Hi Nellie,
Really clever concept, beautifully executed! I loved all the attention to detail. It was fun seeing the different photographic effects and reading your thoughts as you described the setting and your family.

Regards,
