Who's the Winner? It's game night!

It's game night! I seriously dreamed this tablescape on Sunday night. Got up on Monday, and KNEW what I was going to do this week. Ok, so my brain doesn't sleep while the rest of me does - what to do - what to do!

How about some scrabble tiles for place cards!

Thanks for joining me as I play the game of LIFE with all of you every day! I can't really say I have a MONOPOLY on it, but close! I only have UNO chance to tell you how much I enjoy your comments, so PITCH in and let me have it! Sorry, the game thing kinda got me telling TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES.

White dishes - Christmas gift from DD#2 family last year

Black dishes - Dollar General for $7.00 on clearance

Red plates - close out Walmart - .25 each last winter

Martini glasses - Christmas gift from DS and family

White table cloth - had it for a long time

Black and white check - recently purchased for a project you will hear more about later

Silverware - Dollar General 1.00 for 4 of each

Napkin Rings - had them forever - free domino on top

Game pieces - out of the closet. The hard part will be picking them all up and putting them away!


  1. I love this!! I was just saying to my mother and sister this evening that a game night table would be fantastic, and here it is. You did such a wonderful job on this. I love the black, white, and red color scheme, especially the gingham. The scrabble place cards are my favorite part of all.

    Really, I love this. You scored big time.

  2. Love your tablescape and I know a lot of people who would appreciate as much as we do. Playing games has always been a way of life in our family. During the holidays we play a lot of "Taboo" and "Crainium" about hilarious. They need to make addtional cards for the Taboo though because we pretty much know all the answers now since we've played it so much. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful evening. Fondly, Roberta

  3. What a fun and original table you have set. I love the dominoes for napkin rings and it gave me an idea should I have our friends over for dinner followed by Mexican Train! Thanks.
