It's Not That Easy Being Green Tablescape

I think a course in "Kermit" should be required study for everyone before graduation from school. Arguably the most recognizable Muppet, Jim Henson's famous green amphibian can and does teach us all so much about life and the world. But his wonderful song, "It's Not That Easy Being Green" sums it up in less than two minutes. (Here). Give yourself a treat and take a listen....

For this week's table, we pay tribute to all frogs.
The table - Pat started with a Burlap tablecloth

The bottom of the frog plate matches the terracotta tile "placemat"

I fell in love with this frog - from Pier 1

One of  Pat's favorite votive holders - actually napkin rings from Bed, Bath, and Beyond

You've seen Ralph many times before. Pat wanted to "invite" him to dinner.....
