PICK YOUR FAVORITE JANUARY TABLE--NO DRUNKS ALLOWED

The reason for the 
NO DRUNKS ALLOWED?
I ran into someone the other day
that said they were still
HUNG OVER FROM NEW YEAR'S EVE!
Seriously?
Personally, I can't imagine.
I "think" they meant that they were just
exhausted after the holidays---but--
who knows!!

So- here we go.
It's January-  a "downer" for some of us.
But---CHEER UP!!!!
You've been invited to a wonderful dinner
with a good friend.
You would put on a great looking outfit
and pick which table to sit at~
Ready?

TABLE #1
WOODLAND-PARTY ANIMALS INVITED

TABLE #2
JANUARY BLUES- SPRING IS COMING

TABLE #3
HELLO SNOWFLAKE! 

TABLE #4
BLACK & WHITE ALL OVER

TABLE #5
JUST SO SIMPLE AND SWEET

TABLE #6
WOOD YOU LIKE TO SIT HERE?

TABLE #7
OH DEAR DEER, DEAR
You know the routine.
Pick ONE--YES ONE--table
to plunk your butt at.
No complaints allowed!
And DON'T ask me what's 
ON THE MENU
because it is NOT my party!
Got it?

As you know- I don't like winter
SO
You will see me immediately 
when you get there......
I'll be the one with the frozen expression!

well, picking one of those will be extremely difficult as I love all of them. #6, I like because of the round wood blocks that the plates are sitting on and #2 I absolutely love the blue color and it makes it so spring like but my favorite would be #1. Woodland-Party is where I would plop myself down!

Ron said...

Table 7, please! Oh deer!

Ramblings of a Retired Lady said...

Table #4 for me. Love the black and white.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Stick me in with the woodland party animals at table #1 please!

bj said...

I suppose you think I will choose #4 because of the color...but #3 is my choice and I'd like a Frozen Margarita waiting for me at my setting, please and thank you !!

Sandi said...

I am going to with the red snowflake of table 3, but the one with the beavers who have chewed their own centerpiece is adorable!

And...what do you mean no drunks?? Who will lead the singing?

Gay Van Beek, Canterbury Cottage Designs said...

I love the black and white mainly because I never commit to color! And I love the touch of green. I am not drunk, but would have appreciated a little Pinot or SOMETHING on the table. geesh. Love you!

Karen Ann said...

Table six, please - that is gorgeous! With a Tavern Mule on the side in a copper mug. Just one! I don't do drunk. If you've never had a tavern mule - here's the recipe, even though you didn't ask and are going for non-alcohol.

Ginger beer, a dash of vodka, a slice of lime, and a good drizzle of real maple syrup in the chilled copper mug with plenty of ice.

I love Table 2. Love the daintiness and the colors on this table. Plus, I always get the January blues.

Anonymous said...

#4, please. After all the colors of the holidays, I like the simple, clean look of the black & white. Soothing!

P.S. What's a drunk....!!! :).

Preppy Empty Nester said...

Forget it. If no drunks are allowed, I don't want to play. I'm with you on the winter thing. If I was playing, my vote would be #4. Have a great weekend, Diana. Hope you have fun with all your sober friends.

Theresa said...

Oh this is a hard one but I will go with #2 and the January blues:) Have a beautiful day dear friend, HUGS!

Lisa said...

Im choosing table #5. I like small crowds and simplicity. Even though after sitting a while in those chairs, my legs may look like a cheese graiter.
Lisa

Susie said...

Diana, I will pick number four...the black and white is so nice . I expect BJ to sit there too. :):) There were a lot of pretty dishes in all of these. 68 more days till spring, oh yes, I am counting. :) Blessings to you and yours, love you, xoxox, Susie

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I am choosing table # 2, January blues, Spring is coming! Winter won't last forever!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

#7....oh deer! It’s my birthday month so can we have a birthday cake? In the shape of a deer? teehee Thanks for the fun! Oh and everyone at table 7 can bring me presents! This will be FUN! ROFLπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚

Busy Bee Suz said...

#2
And you are SO funny.
I'm hungover....but in a GOOD exhausted way.
XO

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I changed my mind....I still want 7 but I’ll bring the presents! πŸŽˆπŸŽπŸŽ‰πŸŽπŸŽˆ

Pam Kessler said...

#1, but you would just have to make sure you aren't serving any of the little critters for dinner. Steak would be OK, squirrel not so much.

Kathy said...

I want to sit at #3. Although I am not a fan of that white wet stuff known as snow, I love the red plates and the snowflake touches.

KimMalk said...

Hello, my old friend! (and I mean that in a good way!) . I'm going to pick #5 b/c it looks cozy and you just may be able to whisper to your table mate without being seen b/c of the floral arrangement. I am blogging again, but instead of home, it's fashion. You're frozen expression is too funny! Also, guess what? I now have grandchildren of my own {heart}!

Gert said...

Once again this is really hard!!!! I guess I have to go with #2 January Blues, so pretty. No hangover here unless your talking about the flab around my waist LOL

jack69 said...

six.SIX SIx, me 'n Karen will be at 6! Love wood, and like the sturdy table! SWEET!

bobbie said...

Oh, goody!! Seeing this just made my day! I'll take table 4 (Black & White), please. Restful on the eyes after all the reds and greens ~ plus I love the knotted napkin!
And I agree ~ who will lead the singing if we have no drunks?!?! I'll have champagne or a non-oaky chardonnay, thank you very much!
Love you, Diana!

Sally said...

With my outfit, I need to sit my butt at table two please. :)

Good to see you!

xoxo

Art and Sand said...

I would like to sit at the newspaper table. You know, the one that's black and white and read all over.

Sorry for the terrible joke.

But, I love that table settin,

#4

Nancy's Notes said...

Oh my, I really like # 3, love the red! Okay, Okay, but I'm going to go with #4! That black and white caught my eye!

Fun post, my friend~

Nancy

Wild Oak Designs said...

There are cute tables....but I think I'd sit at the black and white table.....very sweet...
Bon appetit!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

For some reason I am so OVER winter so I pick #2 and the lovely blue theme. I promise not to share my flask with anyone who already appears 'hung over'!!

Junkchiccottage said...

Oh my gosh this is a hard one this time. I see a few I would love to have a meal at. If I can only pick one I pick the deer. I love deer and the table scape on this one is fabulous. Have a good weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

Pom Pom said...

Table #4 please, Queenie! (HUG!)

G Dazeez said...

Hello there Diana! I love table #4, the black and white buffalo check, my new love! It makes me feel at home, pour me some sweet tea, and I'll bring the biscuits!

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

Thanks for the heads-up Diana, you're a dear! So glad to play along this time, and its table #2 for me! My favorite colors, turquoise and brown with exquisite pearls, ahh, such loveliness! I don't get the winter blues, I actually love winter dearly! But I am always ready for spring when it arrives... and I'll keep my eye out for you [wink] Hugs!

Nonnie said...

Please let me sit at the black and white table #4! I will wear one of my many black and white outfits! Thank you! πŸ™

Debbie said...

Table #4 the black and white one. Well, am trying my computer again....it's slow going, so I'm not planning on it lasting. Did a post, finally. Like IG, but miss blogging lately. Have a wonderful weekend, girlie.
Debbie
xxoo

Fran Caswell said...

I love playing the pick a table game. Please save me a seat at table 6.

Chatty Crone said...

I like the red in number 3!

bobbie said...

Oh YAY!!! Carol of "Art & Sand" and I will both be sitting at #4 ~ here's to a great meal with LOTS of laughter!!

Jettie said...

I choose #2I love that color blue. Whatever they are serving, I hope it is from the store because I'm allergic to wild game. and no pineapple upside down cake for me, please.

Merlesworld said...

Number 2 please
Merle......

krishna said...

Please reserve a sit for at table 7

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

Oh dear, you know me, it's so hard to choose! At first I wanted table #3, because I love res, but then I chose #6! I'll visit all the other tables, though.

Jeanie said...

Give me Woodland Party Animals (#1) and I'm a happy camper!

Terri D said...

Oh, I hope there is still room at Table #4. I have the perfect little black dress to wear to the party!

Adam said...

Excuse me, there is a snowflake in my soup.

Carol W. said...

I can't choose just one! So, I'll hop between tables 1 and 6. Love the woodland theme of #6, but also love the whimsical theme of #1!

happyone said...

Number 3, the snowflake is the one for me. Love red and white and I do like winter. :)

Rita C. said...

I want table #5, please. It's clear of clutter, fresh and casual. That's my frame of mind right now. Thank you very much. And apparently a degree in accounting doesn't guarantee I can count because I interpreted it originally as #6 and had to delete my first comment. Smh

Denise said...

Table #5 is exquisite but my posterior can’t take the chairs so please may I sit at #4?

Barbara said...

I’d like a seat at Table #2 because I like aqua and that color combined with white makes the cold of winter seem less, well, cold!

Table #3, while beautiful, would be my choice for Valentine’s Day.

And not to worry about drunkenness as I have been a dedicated Southern Baptist all my life and I don’t drink, chew or go with those that do!

Thanks for this FUN POST!!!!

Creations By Cindy said...

Well i love them all but going to sit at #4 . Love it ! Happy New Year . Hugs and blessings , Cindy

Lowcarb team member said...

Wow!
They are all so good, difficult to choose just one, but it's going to be this one please :)

TABLE #7
OH DEAR DEER, DEAR

Hope your week has been a good one, enjoy the up-coming weekend.

All the best Jan

Anonymous said...

Hoping to park my backside at table #2
and enjoy my favorite color.
Phyllis

DJ said...

I hate to start off on the wrong foot since I have never left a comment for you. And I apologize for that. BUT I have to pick two tables. I want to party with the animals #1, but it seems as if #6 would be wonderful for dessert.

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

Has to be Table #1 for me - just too fun :)

Debby Ray said...

Sit me at Table #7 please deer.....I mean dear! Thanks you!

Saimi said...

Numbr 6 most definitely I wood really love to dine at that rustic wooded table setting. It's speaks winter and that's what January is all about!

Missy George said...

I think I will have to be a party animal! Those wooden placemats look like they would be hard to eat off of especially when you’re drunk..I hope you have room for all these people. Wow

Bonnie Schulte said...

#1 please, liked it as soon as I saw it!

Far Ago Farm said...

Party animal that I am, I'd love to sit at table #1!!!

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

This is hard but I decided I like the design of #4 the best! I’m with Gert the only hangover here is at the gut! LOL...

Leena Milligan Lanteigne said...

I was down but since I could only pick 1 tables, I chose #4. I really like black and white! Very pretty choices!

Vee said...

Gosh, you’re lovely! Okay, I know BJ is going to choose #4 so I’ll go with that. All those woodland creatures staring at my food would be disconcerting anyway.

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer said...

As always it’s hard for me to decideπŸ€ͺ But how about I start at table 5 and after I have a few I move to table 6. That way people would have a hard time remembering if I was sober or drunk or they even thing there were 2 different women thereπŸ€“

Unknown said...

Wood you like to sit here? Yes, please! Table 6 BTW I love the photos in your header!

Melanie said...

Please save a seat for me at table 2 - January blues. The others are just too busy for me. However, if you're serving Bloody Mary's with our brunch, maybe I won't even notice any extra-busy decor. ;-)

I always say I have a Christmas hangover - and not because I'd been drinking! Maybe that person you ran into felt the same as me, where you feel like you had way too much in terms of busyness, excitement, decor, presents and food!

Cindy - ClochesandLavender said...

I pick #4. I'll be hanging with my California Cottage girl Carol. We may get drunk but no hangover for us.

Cindy

FABBY'S LIVING said...


Oh my goodness dear friend, such gorgeous Winter tablescapes, so difficult to choose one !
I think I'll start from #7 because of all the adorable deer and beautiful flowers.
Hope your new year is off to a good start and hope it's a happy one.
Love,
Fabby
PS: I have a baby grandboy born Dec.5, 2018; was just a month recently. We are so thrilled !

A Joyful Chaos said...

They're all pretty, but I'll go with table #4

Carla from The River said...

Can I have one butt cheek at #1 and the other sitting on #4?
Pretty Please!!

:-)
I like them both. :-)

I am sure you heard that the missing girl has been found. This has been such a heartbreak for our area. We are so happy she is well! Her aunt, Jennifer was our neighbor, she just recently moved. Jayme will go to live with her.
There are still so many whys?? We all are so happy she is alive! Praying for her, she has a long road ahead, she has a loving community, so I do hope that helps her.
xx oo

Butterfly 8)(8 Bungalow said...

Such a cute post! xo Well, I like 1 and 4. I picked 1, because that is something I would do, and I know I would like the people at the party and be comfortable. 4 is definitely my grownup style, but some people find it stuffy. So 1. xo Su


cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

Love RED....and Blue. Hard decision here....but I will go with #3 thank you.

Carol Henstra said...

I like three also.

It was my Birthday so have been away. Then new year has begun. Happy New year!

Table #4, Black and White All Over

I just unpacked a box of very similar dishes given to me by my sister after their downsizing. I love them, as well as the memories of the holiday and celebratory meals in the house they came from.

CHERI said...

Oh my...this is HARD!!! I like the 2 animal themed ones a lot, but I have narrowed my choice down to #3 or #4. I absolutely love red and I absolutely love gingham check (especially black & white gingham)! Can I combine the two??? Guess not, so I will choose #3. That red, especially the red charger plate just speaks to me!!! Happy January.

LV said...

I have never had a fancy table, but would like Number 2. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule and visited me.

NanaNor's said...

Hi cutie, I choose Hello Snowflake! Love it. Hope you are staying sane in the New Year.
Hugs,
Noreen

Connie said...

I fought a while between #1 and #6, but in the end there was something about #1 that took me to an enchanted dinner in the woodland and I loved that feeling #1.

Kim said...

I hate, hate, hate winter but I’ll sit at the snowflake table please. I mean after all, it is winter and you know what they say...when in Rome...πŸ˜‰

Susan K said...

Didn’t even have to think about it — table #4 for sure!

Katie Isabella said...

Table 5 please. If that one is filled since I am late, Table 4 would be wonderful.
xox

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

You looks so beautiful in your white finery. Could I talk you into sitting with me at #7? I could wear a red dress and oh, we would make a splash!..xxoJudy

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

#4 Black and white all over!

Louca por porcelana said...

Table 4.Such fun post!

coffeeontheporchwithme said...

If I'm not too late, please seat me with the little woodland critters (table 1). You almost had me at that pretty black and white table because the plates are divine, but I'm a sucker for bunny rabbits and such. Have a good day, Diana! -Jenn

Debbie-Dabble Blog and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

Thanks so much for stopping by and for giving your opinion on my post about blogging. I know you do not participate in the linky parties and i am always amazed at how many comments you get but i feel it is because you take the time to comment and people love to return the favor, my friend!! Great post!! I actually like two....# 3 because I love red and 4 because the black appealed to me!!
Thanks so much for sharing!! This was fun!!
Hugs,
Debbie

Julie's Creative Lifestyle said...

I would love to sit at table #3 as it looks so bright and cheery. I would love to roam around and visit the other tables though!

Laura said...

Oh my goodness! Your "drunk intro" totally cracked me up! Lord, help the person that felt like that! Ha

Doris said...

Toss up between 3 and 7.....oh dear, oh dear. Guess it’s 7 ;-))
I don’t like winter either!

Red Rose Alley said...

Number 3 please. I love red and white and snowflakes in Winter. : )

Cecilia said...

Number 1 please. I'll try to behave, lol.

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

I'm late...but let me sit at table one with all the other party animals.

Linda said...

I hope I'm not too late to play! Please sit me at Table #6!

Joan said...

Four....love it and will probably copy it.

Sylvia said...

#7 I know I am late but haven't been on blogland much lately, sorry, I feel like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Oh I love several of these...but I'll sit at table 6!

Jenny said...

I love them all but seat me at Black and White All Over ... no discussion! xoxo

Lorrie said...

Oooh, Table #7 for me - love the woodsy theme. I like #1, too, but those critters might want to eat what's on my plate, and I don't like to share delicious food.
