Well, begod and begorry,
you made your decisions.
Some of you with gnashing teeth
and muttered oaths.
Some of you with itemized lists (really)
and some of you 
You're gonna be sorry about that fact~

So-Just to refresh your memory
here were your choices.
So-Here you are surrounded by your friends.

TABLE #1-Green Stripes-Yikes!
You all certainly liked this one.
Snuggle up because there are lots of chairs here~
Linda/Ramblings, Dawn, Debra H, Moontides,
Jettie, Jeanie (taking time from her travel blog)
Jan, Sally, Phyllis, Missy, Sandie/Chatty, Sarah, 
Betty(she's as Irish as Paddy's pig-and that's a compliment),
Suz,Karen, Doris, Debbi (once again with her crystal ball-will probably tell your fortune for a fee paid UNDER the table)
Noreen(wants you to know she was named after Queen Honora-seriously) 
and my ex-SIL, Ellie, (I KNOW she waited to see where Jettie was sitting before she chose..and I know she will want to sit right BY her, too.)
Denise-(Likes a refined table but says she needs two chairs for her butt-read that any way you want, folks)
Ron- Mr.Cocktail Himself
and bj (who will pay anyone from Table #6 $1000. (sadly-it's Monopoly money) for a cupcake.
Well-there you have it -- and a rowdier bunch cannot be found.

TABLE #2-Leafy Love
We have some nice ladies here.
I was going to say 
until I read the list.
You know who you are!
Laurie, Kim, SweetSugar, Pam,
Jenn, Sissie (sitting here in case she spills something), Theresa, Vee, Pamela,
Sylvia- really wants to be at Table#6 but is afraid she will eat the whole plate of cupcakes.
Tete, KarenAnn, Wanda, 
Jane(stealing a cupcake on the way to her seat)
Lorrie, Dewena,
Deborah & Lauren.

TABLE #3-Shake My Shamrock
Well, Willie is here!  (If you don't know Willie you are missing a lot of laughs-he wants a Guiness), DebbyRay, Julie, Cindy, Lisa K, Cindy/Cloches...
and for two of you that didn't pick-
I picked FOR you-
Patty/Attic Clutter  & Liz/Shortbread
(that'll teach ya)

TABLE #4-Shamrocks & Gold
Susie-is here because of the dishes, Liz,  Nonnie,
Gert, Fabby, Sandi/RoseChintz, LV
Jenny- who made fun of me being pinched for wearing my pin and then had the audacity to LAUGH about it,
bobbie (made her list and checked it twice), 
Michelle (also wants a Guinness-I might move her over to Willie's table so all the drunks can sit together)
Ann-but is moving later for a cupcake,
Diane & Betty D (BOTH sitting here 
because their Lucky # is 4--wondering 
if they both play the lotto?)
Barbara-(totally fascinated by the napkins),
Gayala, Kay, Jan &
Cheri-(says the gold makes her tingle. I'd like to see her after a visit to Fort Knox
AND MELANIE-that I forgot two times in a row...
just shoot me now......

TABLE #5- Tie One On
Here sits our roamers, Jack & Sherry, 
Leena, Adam, Anne, Shirley K and
Terri-(who is determined to figure out 
how to fold those napkins).
Kathy-(couldn't comment on the blog so 
emailed me her choice---gotta love that gal).

last but not least
(might be lying about that part)

TABLE #6-A Cupcake Chaser
MA-(whew she is all about green-wearing it, springing for it, sniffing it?) Linda/ItsyBitsy,
Lisa- wondered if Ron is HOT-
told her yes he is-year round-he lives in 
New Orleans, (shame on you , Lisa)
GDazee-(Also made a list to evaluate her options),
Sheri, Happy, BillyJo, Krishna, 
Kris (stumping along with her bad foot) Karen &
 Linda (she is willing to sell bj a cupcake for $1000. Wonder if she even knows what Monopoly money is.....)

TABLE #7-Special Table For Someone Special.
So there is always ONE, right?
You all know Cathy @1929 Charmer, right?
Let me just say-she is sumthin'
I am going to copy and paste her response.

Since I’m late to the table so to speak I’ll be quick! I’ll have my soup and salad at #4, then the main entree at table #2, then I’ll slide over to table #1 for desert! I don’t like sitting too long at one place and like moving around! If there are any late night snacks I’d like to be at #3! 
Like I said--

Now, I checked this list twice
after I wrote it down.
I am SURE (because that is MY luck)
that I missed seating someone.
IF I did-speak up and I will cram 
you into a chair.

Have a wonderful week!
I will start working on an

No offense meant to anyone.
(I mighta lied about that last statement)

Shortbread and Ginger said...

Ah ha! See I got table 3. I'm happy with that - they were all gorgeous!

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

I really love Table Team No. 2, but no one, no one better not steal my cupcake. I should have chosen a table with a table cloth so I could hide my cupcake. Seems as though this is one "cupcake stealin bunch of crazies!"
Seriously though Diana, this is so cute and I love how you included everyone. So much fun! Yes, you are right, we do have to watch BJ...she is a serious Foodie. LOL! Love her though. Love you too!

Ann said...

Yeah, I'll be moving to table 6 for my cupcake :) This was fun and I look forward to being placed at a table for Easter.

Kathy said...

Thanks for including me even though I had to email my response. As you can see the comments are working for me again.

Betty said...

I cannot stop laughing and after a day like yesterday I really needed it. Love the table and I will be enjoying it.

Vee said...

I was just considering the logistical nightmare of getting everyone to her or his proper table and the tyoing it all up for post. Phew! I’m glad that I didn’t think of this party. Thanks for ALL that you do!

WILLIE........! =^..^= said...

At last! At last! Finally At last!
After only following for a short time..
I discover {I am 'not' the only weirdo
who follows this Blog}
Table 3..Well..Shake My Shamrock..I'm
gonna have to 'Google' all's
the see..! :). HeHe! Laugh! :).

Actually..looking through the post..l think
l'd like to visit one table after another!
My dinner parties go on for at least six
hours..great fun..we've actually sat down
for a meal at the time we turn
round..l'm cooking breakfast, seven the
following morning..!
I've managed to get rid of a lot of 'road kill'
during that time...sssssssh! Say no more..!
HeHe! Brilliant! Great fun! And Easter next..!

Preppy Empty Nester said...

I think that they are all beautiful. And no, I'm not running for office!! Enjoy your week, Diana.

Gert said...

Always love these posts!!! Looks like I’m in good company at my table. Course it would be fun to hop over to the other tables too just to check them and the ladies out!!! Have a blessed day !!

Gay Van Beek, Canterbury Cottage Designs said...

*BLEEP* it! How did I miss this!!!

Sylvia said...

You're a fun lady and I would always want to sit next to you at any table.
I think! LOL

Jeanie said...

I' in fine company at #1!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Well of course now we all want to go with Cathy...and mill about! hahaha! Thanks for the fun! I'll bring the Monopoly money! Hugs!

Melanie said...

OK Diana, you forgot me AGAIN, but I will not take it personally! lol I had chosen table 4 with all the shamrocks but maybe it's because I'm floating around with Cathy, visiting all the lovely tables because I don't like sitting too long. ;-)

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

It's a fun thing to do and I love to see who is at my table! Looks like we're all going to have a great St. Patrick's Day! Thanks for bringing us together !

jack69 said...

I would bet you have developed something unique to the internet. Glad I met you in the last month or so. You comments are great reading and very interesting. Sending Love from central Florida and a beautiful day,
Sherry & jack

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

This was fun and I look forward to your Easter table! Sending hugs from PEI.

Susie said...

Diana, Honestly you have the funniest sense of humor. I love it!! Hope that doesn't make me weird. LOL Oh not saying you are weird or anything like crazy or any of that stuff. :):) Poor Ron, he may end up being the bartender. LOL I bet BJ carries around an Easy Bake know how she is always cooking those tempting sweet treats. She'll be ready where ever you seat her. :) Blessings for a great day, Love you , xoxo, Susie

bobbie said...

Hello, Table #4 mates! Love all your notes, Diana ~ thank you for all the hard work you put into these ~
Now where is my corned beef?!

bj said...

I'll tell ya one thing...I got a great tip out of the mouth of our sweet junkin time, I WILL bring my Easy Bake Oven and then "I don't have to pay no body no money for dessert" fact, for Easter, I'll be sittin' at one of your pretty tables with my little oven, SELLIN' my wares and make myself a little walkin-around money...

This all is too much fun and I look forward to it every holiday...another little way to laugh is always appreciated.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Looks like I will have to defend the cupcakes at table #6 and what EXACTLY is MONOPOLY MONEY???

Terri D said...

Always fun!! And I still want to figure out that napkin fold!! :)

Terri D said...

I found the instructions on Google! Not hard at all!

Pamela M. Steiner said...

I'm glad I'm at the "quiet" table...nice, sweet, sensible people there along with me...LOL. Thank you for a lovely time. Can't wait to get there. What is on the menu? You never told us that part...

Kim said...

I didn't even notice those cupcakes on the table. Good thing, since I gave up sweets for Lent and I'm already going to be eating cheese and crackers with a candle in it on my birthday. I don't think I could take any more temptation. And I LOVED Cathy's comment. Ha! You both made me smile! 😊

Debby Ray said...

Thanks for the fun! But couldn’t we all have the option of milling about from table to table next time?? Now THAT would make it more fun for you to keep track of. Right?? :)

cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

WELL! You did miss me. I liked table #1 but decided on table #4 only because of the goldware reminding me of my mother...BUT I will sit at any one of the tables that has an empty seat....PLUS depending on what is being served....which table has the steak and French fries and cheesecake??? That's the one I want to sit!!

Lisa said...

🀷🏻‍♀️ Well!

Sarah said...

WHAT A FUN TIME! I'm thrilled to squeeze in around table # 1. Conversation should be very interesting!!! Happy St. Pat's Day!

Leena Milligan Lanteigne said...

Thank Diana! Sounds like a good group!

bobbie said...

I was informed by the Diana-brat that it was a PotLuck dinner ~ Hmmmph!!
So I will bring my hubby's Corned Beast, and will share it with all...
So there, Brat!

Chatty Crone said...

Well it looks like I am at the party hardy table - love it!

Doris said...

Whew, our table will be crowded (#1) but sounds like fun! Love these posts.

Junkchiccottage said...

I love when you do this. It is always fun to see the tables and see who we are going to sit with lol!
I like Cathy's idea of going from table to table. Smart why did not of the rest of us think like that!!!!
Hugs and Happy New Week.

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

I love Cathy’s/1929 idea! I may have to adopt this idea of bouncing from table to table.!

Pam Jackson said...

Quiet? HAHA....Yep, that is not happening! Thanks for fitting me in since I was late to the party.

Barbara said...

You sure know how to create fun with these virtual banquets! You are so clever!!! Thank you for seating me at Table #4, just where I wanted to be!

Happy St. Pat's Day to you!

Billie Jo said...

Happy St. Patricks Day to you!!!

Missy George said...

LOL!! What fun..Thanks so much for doing this..Love it...Funny

Julie's Creative Lifestyle said...

It's always fun to see who we wind up sitting with and who is sitting at the other tables. I like what Cathy said. So fun! I am looking forward to the Easter table. :)

ckrut said...

So where are you sitting Diana? Did I miss it or do you just flutter from one table to another? This is so much fun!

Lowcarb team member said...

Such fun, thanks for doing this Diana.

All the best Jan

Rita C at Panoply said...

I am fashionably late, and I demand a recount. Oh forget it....I'll just crash the party and surprise the guests.
(meanwhile, will this purging/packing/cleaning/moving ever be finished???)

Nonnie said...

I'm so glad Susie is at my table.

Stephanie said...

Oh my, I had to laugh out loud at Cathy's comment - too cute! I am so sad that I missed the St. Patrick's Day tables...I missed the last one - ugh! Can I come late to the party and quietly sit at table # 7, the special one :)

Love and hugs to you!

Vintage Girl 901 said...

I love #2. Maybe because I love the white hydrangeas. So fresh and airy. Spring is on the way, sweet one.

Theresa said...

Love seeing who I will be sitting with:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Jo said...

I think Cathy has the right idea, who could choose between them?

Carole said...

I'm too late for the party but I like the one at the top left! Cheers from carole's chatter

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer said...

Hahaha. Thank you for appreciating how special πŸ‘ΈI am! Since I’m siting all by myself does that mean I can’t 🧳 around to the other tables as I requested? Oh, I get it! Table 7 is my home base and I'm free to flutter about mingling with everyone! You are the best! Thank you sweet friend? Do you need any helping clean 🧽 up? I’m sure someone will offer to help!πŸ₯°

Laura Lane said...

They all look fun to me!

Rick Watson said...

Thanks for visiting my blood Diana. You’re blog doesn’t send me notifications when you post like it once did. I’m not sure what causes our blogs to stop sending out notices.
