Snap, Crackle & Pop

It's been quite a while since I've tried my hand at a tablescape. My first one, which I named, Mangia Mangia, was back in July 2010.

This second tablescape was a long time coming because honestly, my family looks at me as though they may want to commit me to an insane asylum when I'm setting a table for no reason at all. :D (What can I say? Non-bloggers...they just don't get it!)

I would like to welcome you to breakfast with Snap, Crackle & Pop.













The Rice Krispie plates came from TJ Maxx a few years back.
I used my everyday white dinner plates & mugs, along with my everyday Oneida flatware.

I'm linking this at Susan's blog Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.



Thanks for stopping by. The weekend is almost here!

And just because I can't resist the urge to complain a little...it is snowing right now. Ugh!

  6. Hi Gina, love your snap crackle pop--brings back memories of childhood!! So adorable--I know what you mean, I complained about the weather being in the 50s! If we had snow, I'd have to complain LOUDLY! Thanks for visiting me and your kind comments...keep those tablescapes coming, your family will get used to it. Mine still thinks I'm crazy, but what else is new lol!!

  9. How could your family possibly resist such a darling table??!?!?!! Don't worry...they'll get used to the idea of you setting the table for them in due time. Pretty soon they'll be critiquing your work, putting in their own 2 cents, wondering aloud why you're repeating a particular motif...they get sucked in pretty good after awhile! :-) Since you haven't put up a tablescape in several months, you've come back around at just the right time. I hope you'll visit my blog to check out details of the Mikasa Giveaway I'm hosting. You could win a 5-pc. place setting for six of Mikasa's "Daylight" pattern. It is beautiful and really versatile for spring and summer. All you have to do is enter your best Spring tablescape. C'mon...do it just to irk your family! :-) Seriously, I hope you will check it out and enter. Easy way to score a set of fabulous Mikasa china! Good to see you here (I didn't join Tablescape Thursdays until September 2010), and I hope to see you again soon. Have a great weekend!

  12. Gina, that is such a cute table. Keep on setting! Your family will eventually get used to it. LOL. I see you have some scarlet Fiesta on your table, too. My favourite colour of p-86. But I love that you did a Snap, Crackle, Pop table. That is my favourite cereal and I have collected a lot of vintage ads of Rice Krispies with Fiesta and Harlequin. Looking forward to seeing more of your creative tables!

  15. All your family needs to say is 'Thank you!" You have a really good eye for design...and I'm guessing for whimsy. Well conceived and beautifully executed. Thank you for sharing your darling design. Cherry Kay
