I’m joining Susan’s Blogging Bloopers Party 2010 over at Between Naps on the Porch. I had to laugh when I read Susan’s comment that at least she hadn’t set a single thing on fire this year…cause that’s just what I did!
When I set the table using my Glimmer of Gold setting (you can see the photos here), I didn’t show any of the photos that I took of the table by candlelight. After my family left and the dishes were cleaned, I had reset the table for our dinner that night. Since it would be after dark when we sat down to eat, I had added pillar candles in lovely crystal hurricanes and several votive candles around the table.
All the candles were burning and I was busy taking photos…when all of a sudden, I noticed this r—e—a—l—l—y big hole (and getting bigger by the second) in the ribbon on my centerpiece. Apparently I didn’t put the candle as far away from the ribbon as I thought I did…said ribbon deciding it was a nice night to be highly flammable. Talk about snatching that ribbon out of the way!
At least it happened AFTER my luncheon was over! My family would STILL be teasing me about it if they knew.
Ribbon and Fire…they don’t mix well.
I can’t wait to read everyone else’s bloopers for 2010!
