This post has been brewing for awhile because none of my pictures I took the day we set up for the county fair turned out very well. So today I took my class to the fair on a field trip. While we were there I took some new (and hopefully improved) pictures of some of the other tables.
Shall we get started?
This table was a tribute to the Los Angeles Lakers. Really cute! I love the menu - Kobe Burgers! How clever!
The next table was a fiesta dinner. I love the tablecloth. It sure looks vintage to me. See the cute little margarita glasses?
This was also a family dinner. (Same category as the Best of Show!) I love the combination of polka dots and damask. The honoree was someone who's initials were J.B. Can you see the J and B at the back of the table?
This was a Christmas table. I think Winter Wonderland was the look they were going for. I chatted for a bit with the lady who put this together. She told me she worked on this all year. Last year she got Best of Show. Wow! Maybe if we worked on it for more than about 3-4 weeks we'd get Best of Show EVERY TIME! (Actually I think the More Creative Bee and I work better under pressure.)
Another Christmas table with a blue and white look.
This table had lots of wonderful elements. It was a Halloween Masquerade dinner. It was sort of a cross between Halloween and Mardi Gras. There was a lot going on for those diners.
This was a fun one. This lady had collected Presidential china. We chatted with her a bit during the set up and loaned her our measuring tape. She had one set from Andrew Jackson, another set from another president and so on. She had china from four different presidents. Sorry, but I can't remember who ANY of the other presidents were. (I should since my degree is in U.S. History, but I could only remember Andrew Jackson because we visited the Hermitage - his plantation - when we were in Nashville.) Doesn't it look elegant? I saw she got first place in her category.
And here is the last one...........
This is my personal favorite (except for ours, of course).
Yes, it had my attention at "Christmas 1955."
See the vintage dishes? How about the glassware? Click on the picture if you want to better read what this entrant wrote.
I think this was my favorite part. Those are Santa napkin rings - gotta' be vintage! And look at the vintage hankie for a napkin! Love this! So stinkin' cute!
(Not quite the wicked stinkin' cute of OUR tables, but still - definitely in my top 3!)
Did you have a chance to see our prize winning tables this year?
Well with all these tablesettings, you know I've just got to link up to
over at Between Naps on the Porch.
Hope you can stop by and see more beautifully set tables.
And thank you for coming by today. I truly enjoy our little visits.
