In my last post I asked for your feedback on the Mantel Mantle Party, and you overwhelmingly stated that it needed to move to once a month. Thank you so much for getting back to me, and phew, I’m so glad! I was feeling really sad about the possibility of having to kill my own party. I want to be the life of the party not the proverbial buzz killer. There were also a bunch of requests to change the name of the party to something more inclusive of all vignettes. Hmmmm. I’ll have to think on this one. Changing to once a month is going to be confusing (it’s easy to miss a once a month date) and then changing my graphic on top of it might also lose people. Perhaps I’ll keep the graphic and change the name to “Get ready, Set, Vignette!” or something equally corny. The horribly unoriginal “Mantel Party” has been grating on me for months. The utter lack of pizazz is just so not, well…us! So all this rambling to say that the next Mantelesque Ready Set Vignette (uh oh, I’m starting to like that) will be Friday, March 5th. I’ll update my button soon.
Hoosier Homemade Liz has a ton of fabulous Valentine’s inspiration going on right now. This is just a small sampling. Her mantel looks festive but just wait until you see her whoopie pies!
Songbird I don’t know if it’s because she painted a suitcase, or because she is Dutch (and so is that sweet label that says “linens”), or because this is just plain gorgeous, but Marianne’s guest table deserved to be featured. If you don’t know Marianne, you’ll want to. Go visit her.
So far I’m getting a lot of fearful “no way in Hades” type responses, but the party will STILL take place for the few, the proud, the brave, the naked faces!
