We'll be away from home for Easter this year,
so I didn't think I'd have a tablescape to share at
or Susan's BNOTP Tablescape Thursday.
However, when I arrived at
my friend Nicole's home today,
for *Smock & Talk*,
she had her kitchen table all set up for
a Cleveland Indian's Opening Day Celebration!
(which is Thursday of this week)
She MADE all of these darling placemats!!!
Aren't they cute??
I wish I'd had my good camera with me,
because these photos don't do them justice.
They were just so happy & vibrant looking &
I just flipped over all the creative
"accoutrements" that she has added.
That chubby pink fellow is
"Slider" in the center...
he is the Cleveland Indian's mascot &
he's cheering for O-H-I-O!
There was a bobble-head doll at each place
as well as a paper hot dog
holder & a bag of cracker jacks, too.
among other things, for dinner.
I've added a hot link to the authentic
Stadium Mustard's website to answer Alycia's
Its what makes the hot dogs at the ballpark taste so GOOD!)
She even had ball park peanuts!!
Do you recognize this guy on the mound?
Its Bob Feller, the famous & beloved Cleveland Indians pitcher, from 1936-1956, who pitched 266 victories during his playing career. He was nicknamed "The Heater from Van Meter, "Bullet Bob" & also "Rapid Robert".
I know the kids had to be thrilled
to come home from school to find
all this waiting for them.
I wish I could have been there to
see their faces when they walked in the door.
I'm pretty sure they're going to the game tomorrow, too.
I wish I was.....Go Tribe!
