Just like Santa,
I made my list and checked it twice,
I  know who's naughty
and I know who's nice....
Yeah- and YOU know what category 
YOU fall into, right?

So...settle down and pick find your seat.
Knock it off- you know what I mean!

Here were the choices:

Sitting at 
#1-Arbor Lights
Sandie, Susie, Gert, Brenda, Fran,Diane
Petie (she's bound determined to bring a white tablecloth just so you know),
Jan, Debby, Kathy, Vee, Cathy, Cecelia, Rose,
Cheryl, Lorraine, Gina, Pam, Carol, Karen,
Robbin, Mary, Noreen, Karen & Rue

#2- Flowers, Flowers Everywhere
(also now the designated cocktail table because Ron is there)
Ron, Jenn, Lori, Karen, Leta, Laurie, Lisa
Watch out for that one, girls!

#3- Pillars and Pumpkins
NO ONE wanted to sit

#4-Whoot It's Wheat
Debra, Sally, Marydon, Krishna, 
Deb, Carla, Lesley
bj & Cindy
(Just so you know- Marydon is going to be insistent that
SOMETHING on the table is PINK)
I'm thinking this might work....
 #5- Is Brown The New Black
Lisa, Sylvia, Lauren, Kathy, Michele, Cindy,
Missy, Cindy & Karen.
(couple of trouble makers at this table
and you know that I know who you are
and I won't tell)

#6- Pumpkin On Plaid
Marydon (couldn't make her mind up-
still looking for something pink on the table...
one in every crowd, folks) LOL
Ckrut (I know her name but I'm not telling)
Mildred, Billie Jo, Ellie, Jettie 
(those last two are sitting there whether they want to or not cuz they couldn't decide)

#7 Rustically Refined
Sandra, Sylvia, LaVoice (love that name), Linda
Nancy, Linda/LaCarte, Louise, JoAnne, Lorrie,
Beach Gypsy, Liz.

Maybe Beach Gypsy will bring her 
Crystal Ball and tell fortunes while you wait for dinner....

#8- Is Copper Cool

Well, obviously SOME of you think 
Copper is Cool.
Adam, Bobbie, Sugar, Sheri, Denise, AnnMarie, Celeste

And you gals are ALL cool!!!
Ok-and ADAM, you are COOL, too!

Thanks so much for playing along.
It is a bit of work to put this together but 
I do think it is fun and 
I am thrilled that you like it!

Have a wonderful weekend.
I am out of town for the weekend but back late Sunday....
Got grandkids staying at the house this weekend 
(with mom)
Wonder what MY table will look like when
I get home!?!

Simply LKJ said...

Oh Lord, gotta love predictive text. 3rd times the charm, BANNED. Or maybe it was the cocktail talking ;-)

Oh, I'm so glad I'm sitting with Celeste. She's a gem. : )

I hope you're doing well with the etsy sales. It sounds like you are. So glad you decided to open up the shop. I love browsing through all the goodies, and I look forward to seeing more Christmas stuff.

Have a great weekend my friend.

Susie said...

Diana, I am loving my table mates . Is Marydon at table # $, the one who wants she the Marydon that we used to blog with a few years back ? I miss her. Good wishes to everyone. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Darn it, I missed the party. I would definitely be sitting at Number 4 along with Marydon and some of those other gals. This was so cleverly done you little Angel.


Shelia said...

Hi Diana! Shoot! I guess I've been traveling around and cleaning too many toilets and I missed your party! Love all the pretty tablescapes though. Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

krishna said...

I'm sitting at #4-Whoot It's Wheat, but when my friends are coming to sit with me.. :)

Michele said...

Thanks, Di - and I AM NOT A TROUBLE MAKER! My mother taught me to have good table manners at every table.

: - p

/grumbles to herself about being bolded out like a true troublemaker....people who bold people out ARE the troublemakers!!!!!! Except NOW in true trouble maker form, I wanna change my table and vote for the one that got no votes!

Thanks for the belly laughs today, I really needed it. Hugs. ♥

Kim said...

How did I miss that post? I'll just blame it on my kids. So needy. 😉 Anyway, I would probably chosen table number the lights. Always fun to read your table setting comments. Have a great week!

BeachGypsy said...

Linda and sheila were late to the party so i am claiming them and inviting them to our table! Yes i have the psychedelic gypsy ball all shined up!! Lol

Lorrie said...

Great fun! Table#7 sounds like the place to be.

Holly @ Down to Earth Style said...

Travel safe and I look forward to seeing you and your table setting soon!

koi seo said...

Hope you found the house intact. I do think these are great fun. ☺️

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

I had a good laugh at the wedding called off!
