Table for One-What A Zoo!

Hi everyone!
Is it just me, or are there days you feel like you work in a zoo too? I can already see my co-worker shaking her head yes! Hey T, hang in there Friday's coming!
I set a simple table using these plates I found at the Salvation Army, I thought they were colorful. 
The amber glass was from a thrift shop, the planter was from a flea market - $3.49 total.
Placemat and napkin from Walmart, flower tea light candle from Ma-thanks!
The veggie garden has faded quickly, but I'm happy to report that the cutting garden is still doing well!
Miss Pinky in all her glory!
Please stop over to Tablescape Thursday to see what everyone has put together!

Now back to the office being a zoo...
I'd like to introduce the Production Team:
and the Plant Manager...
and this old buzzard, well I'll let you guess who that is:@)
Have a happy day!

  11. Hello,
    do you hear me laughing. You are so funny! Yes, the plates are relly pretty and colorfull and everybody, who loves animals, just have to love them. Mrs. Piggy is the star of the evening and has already got her flowers. But the production team and the plant manager just kill me. So cute. Let me guess who is the last one- I think, he is the manager of the Complaints Office. Thank you for sharing this pretty tablescape and the fun.
    Greetings, Johanna

  14. So funny about the production team at the end!

    Those are really cute plates! I'm going thrifting with some friends this week. I hope I can find something that colorful and fun. You're blessed to still have picking flowers. Ours down here and drinking up whatever water we can give them and drooping again by noon. Yours are pretty!

    And yes, most of the time my life is a zoo too.

  37. Hey, I bet you think I have forgotten all about you. Nope, just tons of company and camping at the Smoky Mountain Nat'l Park. Now my daughter is here and more company next week for 10 days. Whew! In the summer this place is a ZOO. No pun intended. Smile.

    I love your jungle place setting. It is soooo cute. No pigs??? HA! Love your humor too.

    See you again soon, I hope. Have a happy week.
    Hugs, Jeanne
