Here are a few fun "holidays" celebrated in Oct. I know OA has a stash of about everything and anything. LOL. But some of us might be able to come up with some stuff too.
Dishes OR a small table vignette...if you want to play!

Oct. 1st National Lace Day
Oct 2nd Guardian Angel Day
Oct 2nd Farm Animals Day
Oct 5th World Teachers Day
Oct 6th Mad Hatter Day
Oct 13 Bring Your Teddy Bear Day

I kind of liked Oct 11 being "Kick Butt Day" for some reason, LOL. Tho I don't think there's a table in that one. Just sounds good to me right now.

hugs, Karen

Sounds like fun.

Karen,
I bet 'cha with this bunch that "Kick Butt Day" would be the winner. LOL

RE: if you get bored and want to play.....

C.A., you are probably right. And knowing OA, she probably has one of those garden gnomes who's bent over mooning everyone to use. LOL.

I hope to participate in about 3 of those "holidays",
tho mine more likely will be table vignettes since I don't play well with dishes.
;o)

hugs, Karen

RE: if you get bored and want to play.....

Luvs mentioned in another post that she'd like to do a black & white t'scape yet...& I've been pondering one of those, too (just need to make time to do it, right!) ... so maybe I'll choose the "guardian angel" date...I certainly know about GA's! Thanks, Purplemoon..."let the games begin!" LOL! Jeanne S.

RE: if you get bored and want to play.....

Jeanne, planning my black/white for Halloween, so jump right in there with a GA one, can't wait to see it.

All these holidays make me laugh each time you gals post them. Who comes up with these things???? Certainly something for everyone!

RE: if you get bored and want to play.....

Luvs, there's a site that lists what nearly every day of every month is 'celebrated' on. Most are serious stuff, or at least not funny, but I try to find the ones that would work here. Actually I should just ask OA to make up a list. LOL. She's great at coming up with ideas!!

hugs, Karen

RE: if you get bored and want to play.....

Actually, most of mine are just remembered from my primary teaching days. I used them as themes to inspire my little first and second graders. Needless to say, Kick Butt Day was not among them - although I remember a few students who could have benefited from a little "celebration" along those lines.

I think Karen uses one of the sites that I've been on when looking for the unusual.

Here's a list I keep in my Tablescape Folder. I DO NOT vouch for its accuracy.

It is flying! Still didn't get out the Fall stuff! It is hot!

RE: if you get bored and want to play.....

Same here Kathleen, back up to the 3 digits again. I think I started too early last year and was tired of it by Thanksgiving, so waiting a bit this year. I do decorate inside with Fall items, but they really don't go too well with all my rose plates and more pastel decor!
