Mamma Mia and Table Decorating!!!

Heheheh....I went to a special preview of the Mamma Mia movie last was absolutely fab........I don't think I have laughed so much at a movie in a long long time!! The special screening was at one of the huge shopping malls here, Central World, and we got VIP seating (Big reclining chairs and a blanket...bliss), wine, canapes and popcorn. If you've not seen the film I can highly recommend it.....even if your not an ABBA fan it's worth going just to see Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan in glittery spandex!!!

I also went to a table decorating event which was just a bit odd!! I thought we were going to be shown hints and tips on how to make your dinner table look amazing but when we got there we discovered that Thai celebrities had already decorated the tables and that we had to vote on the best one. It would appear that Thai's invite people over for dinner that they don't actually like......nearly every table had huge vases in the middle so you couldn't actually see the person sitting opposite you!! Most of them were hideous but I did like these handbags made out of flowers......I thought it might be nice (and relatively easy) to make a couple the next time we're having people over and the ladies can take them home with them.......


I have butterflies in my stomach today......I'm going to give Jane her picture tonight......keep your fingers crossed that she likes it!!!


  1. The floral handbag looks great - what a lovely idea!

    I'll be thinking about you tonight. I don't think you need to worry, she'll love it, but I would be exactly the same - fingers and eyes crossed.

    Love Mum xx

  2. I've always disliked table arrangements where the centerpiece is so huge it dominates everything - I agree, you should be able to see others across the way!

    And best of luck with your commissioned piece - I'm sure your client will be very pleased. :)

  3. Mama mia has passed me by out here, I can't believe you've got it there. Good look with your painting presentation. Debs x

  4. Mum - The handbags are lovely aren't they and I think they will be simple to make....a bit of oasis and off we go....

    Amy - I don't understand why you would invite someone over and then spend the evening peering round a table decoration at them!!!

    Lehners - It was brilliant....very very funny (I had to resist the urge to sing ABBA songs at Chris when I got home!!)

  5. Not keen on Mamma Mia but the table decorating evening looked like fab fun.

  6. DJ - I surprised myself by loving Mamma Mia....I think one of the things that did it for me was the fact that the cast just looked like they were having so much fun!!

    The table decorating was interesting. As I said in the post most things were hideous but I did come away with a few ideas so all was not lost :-)

  7. this is one of the few plays i've actually seen, which ended up being great... it's funny to think of ol' Pierce taking a stab at singing, yeeesh


I love getting comments so please leave one.
