Tasteless Tablescapes

Today's tablescape is only recommended if you have the panache to pull it off. You've been baking cookies for your friends who are coming to visit. How kind. But perhaps you started a wee bit early and they haven't arrived. Better test one to make sure they are delicious. Why yes, they are. Perhaps another. And another.
Before you know it you are passed out on the table in your robe and slippies with a carton of soymilk, an empty cookie sheet and a bag of Chick-O-Sticks you have no recollection of buying. And there your guests are on the front porch looking in the front door at your state of dishabille.
Like a good hostess would, offer them that bag of candy.

Ahhh ha ha ha. Love it. Thanks for the morning giggle.

I fear I do not have the panache to pull this off. I'll save that for the experts.

How inspiring! I need to work on the burrito/wrap version of this. With nothing but a bottle of hot sauce and some tortilla chips to offer guests (or, more realistically, my family).

Such style and grace. And a bonus panda in the tablescape!

I'm with Jessy--keep the chik-o-sticks, offer them some soymilk!

Clearly Jessy and Sarah P have the panache to pull this off. Keeping the chick-o-sticks and offering an empty carton of soymilk!

LMBO, hehehehehe, offering the bag of candy just shows how awesome of a hostess you can be under pressure.

Alas! I don't own a robe. Tablescapes are so hard!

Islaborg said...

Haha, we've all been there, it sure does leave a memorable impression!

If you don't have a robe, you can certainly pass out on the table in other outfits. It may not be as classy as a robe and slippies, but there is nothing wrong with wearing a pair of pants and shirt.

Very cute post. Go get some real sleep.

Nice! Even better than last week's tablescape! Of course we're trying to copy every one of those.

Is that a cat's tail under hostess' right arm? Has Mr. Bran been trapped in the frenzy? RUN, MR. BRAN!

Monique a.k.a. Mo said...

ABSOLUTE BEST!

Trapped under my arm is the spatula. I am fairly sure that Mr. Bran avoided this mess. Or possibly bought the Chick-O-Sticks.

Amey said...

ha ha this is AWESOME. You should enter this in the county fair.

poopiebitch said...

I thought Mr. Bran was the one taking the pictures.

panda with cookie said...

To the fair!

You are so awesome, panda.
