Lunch On The Go For Busy Moms

Friday Follow

Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch is our hostess for Tablescape Thursday.
Friday Follow is hosted by One 2 Try, Hearts Make Families and Midday Escapades.

Charisse and I are totally new to this...but we gave it our unique Life Laugh Latte spin. We actually created and edited this vlog today. So hot off of the press you'll burn yourself. This is some of our best work. It's worth the extra time to watch it...I promise you! So sit back and learn a thing or two from the minivan masters. Enjoy!

Bunny
thanks for stopping by the paris house

Candy said...

It really does take a LOT for me to choke on my Pepsi and LOL. This did it, great effort you two.

Will be sending this on to my daughter ..... was that her van you two were driving?

I'm glad to see you see the humor in all this "tablescaping" frenzy, Mr. TLRT would be right there with you for a perfect Micky D meal and you wouldn't even have to dress it up!

Best Regards,
Candy

Mimi said...

OMG, I am laughing so hard! That was great...there is no way I'd drink out of that sippy cup...loved the silverware holder/name tag. How ingenious of you two ladies! Thanks for my giggle of the day!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

OMG!!! That was hilarious!!!! I loved it! You girls are just too funny. The silverware holder was the funniest part of the whole video. I almost peed my pants. Thanks for the laugh today, I needed it.

5thsister said...

Heck yeah! I carry all that in my vehicle so I'm able to eat like that every day! But for future safety's sake, please, Holly, light your candles AFTER you spray the air freshener! I thought you'd be shooting flames there for a moment! I want you guys around for many, many more vlogs to come.

Barbara said...

This was great! Love that tampon name tag.

Chaos Cottage said...

You guys are crazy! I loved it!

Pam

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

OMG-how did you keep a straight face. I will never look at wrapped silverware the same way again. Truthfully...this is almost what it feels like when I'm grasping at straws to figure out what to put on the table each week! Bravo ladies!

Sue

dee dee said...

How fun! A breath of fresh air!
Dee Dee

Maryrose said...

You are both hysterical. I didn't know what I was getting myself in for but enjoyed every moment. I think I must agree...the way you creatively wrapped the silverware was a winner, but the sippy cups..... :(
Great job

xinex said...

LOL! You ladies are so funny and so much fun. Thanks for the good laugh!...Christine

Chandy said...

LOL That was amazing!!! My hubs and I had to watch it together and we couldn't stop laughing at all of your "trunk" tablescape ready items. Great job!

Dishesdone said...

Hysterical! I bet if you looked further you could have found dessert under those seats!

Excellent video!

Linda said...

Any chance mini-van crafts could be a sequel. A DIY homage? lol

LAUGHED SO HARD!!! Thanks for brightening my day ladies.

Love you Holly & Charisse,

Linda

Joanne Kennedy said...

So what's up! Are you making fun of all of us who take time to dig through our stuff in order to make a beautiful tablescape? HOW RUDE!

Just kidding of course! This was so funny! I loved the napkin and the napkin ring/place card. I may have to take this idea and do it one day. All my friends and family now expect my tables to be set to match the theme. Wouldn't it be fun to have those waiting for them. LOL

Thanks for the laughs!

Hugs,
Joanne

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

For some reason I couldn't get it -- and I can certainly tell I'm missing something fun! Boo Hoo! Thanks for your sweet visit.

Marsha's Mpressions said...

OMG! How ingenious! You two are a riot! Keep it up!

bellacasa said...

You gals must truly have fun together. It certainly looks as if there are some real antics going on. I can only imagine what your kids are like ;)

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

This is the first living tablescape I've seen. Looks like you were having fun.

Katherine

Sonia said...

Oh this is so fun!!! Love it to pieces! Especially the winged pad silverware holder with the gorgeous tampon napkin ring! I'm an OB/GYN nurse and I'll be sharing this at work! Hilarious! You both are a hoot!

Miss Bloomers/Sonia

Martha in PA said...

This is the BEST EVER! I have seen those tablescapes, and think to myself, my table NEVER looks like that, your way is more my style! ALWAYS --- what a hoot!

Right now I could probably pull off a pretty good tablescape. I have four boxes of "stuff" from storage I need to go through and it is all stuff from my kitchen in FL!

Angie Muresan said...

Very romantic... But I laughed so hard I may have leaked. You two are CRAZY!!! Love it!

Helene said...

You both are a riot!!!! Loved this vlog!

And now I finally have a use for that table I've been storing in the back of our mini-van!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog..hope you'll be back again soon!

ScoMan said...

When I first read the title of this post I was like "What? Dad's can't do this? Or single guys?"

But then I watched and I guess there are no drapes in my car.

Or tampons.

But I am willing to steal from McDonald's.

Great laughs were had. Well done.

ShellyInOz said...

Up to my ears in kids, work and housework, and was so glad I stopped by for a break. Thanks for the giggle. I loved the tampon cutlery holder thingo! I am still gagging from the thought of the sour milk!

Shelly

Susan said...

This was absolutely hysterical!!! Thanks for the laughs and reality of life on the go!

Very clever! I have never set up a tablescape in my van....but for us "tablescapers" out here...it does give one thought!! I could probably do one in my car too except for the ugh, sippy cup...thank goodness, I am done with that!
