It's Rodeo time in Kansas!! Time for the cowboys and girls to come to Phillipsburg for fun, money, and fame. You can look up Kansas Biggest Rodeo on the internet and find out more than you ever wanted to know. All joking aside, there is one of the top Rodeo's in the US right here in north central Kansas. Good old boot kickin' fun, if you're up for it. I have decorated for rodeo every year for a long time, it's darn near like a holiday for the people in the area.
Instead of one thing for the centerpiece, I used 3. I used a pair of cowboy boots (thrifty) filled with sunflowers,
a brown paper sack with rafia ties, filled with faux sunflowers and grains, (thrifty)and a lamp that is an antique railroad lamp. (hand me down from MIL/thrifty) If you were going to eat out on the prairie, you would surely use an oil lamp for lighting, wouldn't you?
You would use a jar to drink from, right? How lucky yours has a handle!
The tablecloth is medium blue, with a white square tablecloth on the diagonal. The white cloth is fringed, and kinda looks westerny"?" (is that a word?) Of course a red bandana for a napkin.(thrifty)
Each place setting is the mismatched stuff you just threw in your saddle bag, maybe? (thrifty) Salad plate is clear glass, hard to see here. (I got 4/$1.00 at GW earlier this Spring.) (thrifty)
Bottom plate is my "new" sunflower plates. I got 4/#1.00 at GW too. I have a lot of sunflower stuff, so they will get used! (thrifty)
