Left Face! Oh, dear, another cow picture. I just can't help myself!
My best friend's son (my Godson) is getting married soon (applause, applause, applause!!!)! The wedding won't be until October, but I wanted to do something for him and his fiancee before we head to the Midwest and our 'summer' home. So...out came the 'props' for the table.
A farm outside of our little town in Wisconsin had these neat old cheese boxes for sale last year for twenty-five cents! I only bought three, but wish I had bought a dozen! Perhaps he'll have some more this summer.
Now, for some odd reason that I have never understood, my Godson's nickname is...wait for it...ROOSTER! So...naturally there would have to be a rooster somewhere in the decor! This one, from HL, half price. I came close to purchasing one of those huge colorful ones, but for some reason, I was drawn to this one (maybe because it is red, and that's his Mom's favorite color). He will sit on top of two upside down cheese boxes surrounded with colorful bedding plants. Perhaps he will wear...black tie!?!
I didn't start out with a Mexican theme, but since the celebration will be close to Cinco de Mayo, and the rooster is red, I thought primary colors should be the order of the day. Napkins from Wal-Mart (and made in the USA!!!!).
There is NO doubt that it will be hot, but I will probably need the courtyard for something; and to cover the table I stumbled upon this bright tablecloth at Big Lots (it's the ONLY thing I've found at our local store that has been worthy of a purchase).
Now, you would simply fall down right now if you could see the house and yard--no signs here that a party will ensue in a matter of days! However, I have great faith in
