Valentines Day is approaching

Are you someone who needs coaching?

The girls, they are broaching!

Every day of the year

It’s nice if appreciation is brought

But they want to know at least one day

That their hard works not for naught

Chocolate is so nice

It brings a smile to ones face

Flowers too- a fresh bouquet

The old ones to replace

Rose Table Topper

How about something red or white

A lace tablecloth for women to delight

Its delicate petals scattered across the table

Hosting a party she will now be able


For this is something that can last quite long

When she glances at that tablecloth

Her feelings of appreciation will be strong

So show your love by treating her to something worthwhile

A classy new tablecloth that has a lot of style

Congratulations! You’re preparing for a wedding, a party, or a very special event. There are so many details that go into an event and one could never imagine how many details there are until you’re the one making it! You’d like to be organized and so you make a check list of what has to be done. The gown, hair, makeup, and wedding cake are all taken care of and now you would like to focus on the color of the wedding or party tablecloth. You want the occasion to be a memorable one and the color of the tablecloth you will choose will add a tremendous amount of ambiance to the decorum.

The most common tablecloth colors are white or ivory. Black tablecloths are also popular. You may have a theme or a favorite color in mind. It is a good idea to check out the hall where your party will take place to make sure that the color you choose does not clash with the surroundings. You may have picked a beautiful lavender tablecloth however; if the wallpaper on the interior of the hall has hot pink on it, the tablecloths will not be complimentary.  If you like strong, bold colors consider using a table runner or napkins in the color you prefer and use a white or ivory tablecloth instead.

Take the lighting into account. The lighting will make a difference on which color tablecloth you choose.  Is your event indoors or outdoors?  Are you planning a setting that is dark and romantic?  If the hall has dim lighting a gold or glittery tablecloth will create a dazzling effect to your party. It is a good idea to bring a color swatch into the hall so you can rest assured that the color you pick is the right one for the occasion.

A nice idea for an outdoor reception is to have a white or ivory tablecloth and incorporate some green such as a green napkin or table runner to compliment the beautiful outdoor scenery. If the party is near a beach front, consider using a tan or blue tablecloth or table runner.

Seasons also play a part in which tablecloth you choose. In the autumn you will see more burgundy and gold tablecloths while in the spring, pink, light blue and light green colors are popular. Look at the flowers that were chosen or the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses to see if you would like to use those colors for your tablecloths.

I have a grandma she is 82

She has not just one ailment but quite a few

She tries real hard not to complain,

But sometimes she can’t ignore the pain.

Since she retired she now has the time,

To listen to her body and hear it chime.

I thought it would be a great idea,

To invite her over and spread some cheer.

I’ll also invite her friends for cake and wild berry zinger

Just think of the pleasure the event will bring her.

“Great” said Grandma see you then

“I’ll circle on the calendar so I will know when.”

On that designated day they all arrived,

Happily chatting they all stepped inside.

The discussion was centered around the table

Reminiscing of the time when they were able

To knit a piece, an old world style

A tablecloth such as mine they have not seen in a while

It’s delicate lace a work of art,

Heirloom square

The intricate styles that set them apart.

So busy talking soon the hour was late,

They thanked me for the party and said it was great!

Such a good time they hadn’t had in years

No time to worry or address their fears

Never heard from them so much as a groan,

So glad of the party that I had thrown!

On this wintery day so very frigid

I recall a memory so vivid

Of my mom and I when I was a child

My mom took my sis and me

To a wide open field filled with strawberries

For a day filled with fun under the sun

strawberry patch.

We each got a basket and told to fill to the top

Luscious strawberries we ate unable to stop

We tried to pick the juiciest ones that were red


My sister couldn’t differentiate

So she picked the unripe ones instead

We laughed and enjoyed each other’s company

Till it was time to go home to kitchen duty

To strawberry jam making and strawberry pie baking….

Oh those days have gone by, now there are just memories

So I’m spreading out my tablecloth filled with printed strawberries

Wild Berries 2

Glad I have something to remind me of good ol’ days gone by

And made up my mind that I will try

When the weather turns warmer a strawberry patch I’ll see

And enjoy the day out with my family.
