I know I'm Right, What About You?

Hosted by Susan

Hello all! I haven't had much time to get all the decor back in storage, so I'll just share with you our three days of feasting!

New Year's Eve FINGER FOODS PICNIC by candlelight and snow...
This was my tablescape for my Christmas Day Dinner; simple but ready for any type of dining.

Now on to some awesome deals!
Hosted by Leigh

We went to Kroger tonight and noticed their 75% off deals for their Holiday items. In one aisle, big discount signs shouted the deals waiting ahead, so naturally, my hubby and I, partook. Well... I guess their own people didn't know what those signs meant since only 1 of these three were on sale correctly! We had to call in the manager twice to figure out what I already knew- I was right, they were not! In the end, we got our money back and sincere apologies. What else could a girl want, right? :-D

$5 for this 7-cup votive holder...

$5 for this V-day ready tablecloth...
and $7 for this game my family's been requesting... Woohoo!!!

I just love getting a good deal, don't you? Oh yeah, I also got $20 worth of FREE clothes, off their many clearance racks, from Kohl's with their Buy $50 get $10 back promo back in late December. Gave them the $20 Kohl's Cash voucher and saved over $60 to boot!

Tablescaping Idea: ("Brain" is lobe-to-lobe smiling) Since year end holidays seem to have one thing in common, cold weather ahead, use colors that can be extended to at least two of the holidays. You save money, time and effort in coming up with original ideas.

Thank you all for coming by! To our lovely hosts, a million thank yous...


  1. OMG Chandy! Is that you? You finally came. Happy New year to you and your family and I am hoping this year will be more relaxing for you. I love your casual extended partying tables, sounds so Filipino, lol. I miss that!....Christie

  2. All three of your tablescapes were so pretty. I love finding treasures at good prices also. Thank you for sharing your tips.

  3. Hi Chandy!
    I was over at Christine's and saw you posted..
    I just had to come over and say hi!
    Looks like a fun holiday!
    Hope you are well..

  4. Found you at Leigh's. Loved your post-Christmas goodies! Well done! = )

  5. Chandy, I would love to taste some of the foods you prepared. The table is very inviting, looks great. Happy to see you.


  6. Chandy, I hope you and all your family had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Your tables all look wonderful and full of fabulous food too. Great bargains, good for you. Hugs, Marty

  7. Hi Chandy! Your tables are beautiful, but I had to smile because I do the same thing just opposite.. I do a bigger, more formal dinner on Christmas Eve, then just a buffet "Serve Yourself" buffet for Christmas Day!.. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and I'm wishing you all the best for 2010! ~tina

  8. What a way to start the new year~it would be such a special treat to sit at your table.
    I would surely have to wear elastic pants as the food looks SO good.

  9. Great feasts, tablescapes and deals...I love a good deal too !

    After Christmas, I decorate with snowmen, snowflakes, blues, whites and silvers on my table...takes me all the way to Valentine's Day when I break out hearts, flowers, pinks, reds and gold.

  10. Chandy (jumping up and down)!!! I have missed you!!!! Hope all is well!
    What wonderful feast you prepared. I'd love to be a guest at any of them!
    Fabulous thrifty deals! Not only the tablecloth is V Day ready, but the votive holder. Its shaping up for a good night! Smile.
    Thanks, friend, for linking up to Thrifty Thursday on Tales from Bloggeritaville! Great thrifty treasure!

  11. Love the tablescapes! I also got some good deals from Kroger's. Some decorated salad plates were 31 cents each! Nice!

  12. Looks like some mighty good holiday on your tablescape! Love those deals -- glad that you were able to get the right prices.

  13. Nice deals at Kroger! I stop by there as well and picked up some Christmas glasses for only .40 cents each. People always forget to check their local grocery for good after the holiday sales!

  14. Oh Goodness! I love the no cook idea! Looks like so much family fun!


  15. Chandy, love the picnic in the snow theme. Your food looks so good, and what bargains you found! laurie

  16. Forgot to tell you that picture in your header is beautiful! laurie

  17. Sorry about all of the comments. I also meant to thank you for posting my party button. (The holidays have completely taken my brain away!) laurie

  18. Thank you all dear readers... You just made my day!

  19. Hello Chandy,

    My! It is a feast indeed! :-) Lots of food - yum! LOL

    I like the snowflakes on the table - Love blue, it's very soothing to the eyes.

    Wishing you and your family a blessed New Year!


  20. Li, I'm so glad to "read" you here again!

  21. Hi Chandy,
    I always love the way you set a table. I hope you're have a great start to 2010! I took a few weeks break myself, but I missed all my blogging friends. Take care.
