Calling all poets...

Posted by sueb20 (My Page) on

We are planning a holiday party, in part to celebrate our "new" house (new addition will be completed within next few weeks, including large kitchen/family room). Part of the reason we embarked on this addition is because we love to entertain, and we had one of those tiny kitchens where people were always crammed in, standing around the island. So I want to word a cute invitation, maybe with a funny little rhyme about how we now have the space for a party, celebrating our "new/old" house, something along those lines. Can anyone help?

I always like doing take-offs of popular song lyrics...

'Course they always end up dirty... ;-P

RE: Calling all poets...

It doesn't exactly fit, but I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the Crosby/Stills/Nash "Our House".

RE: Calling all poets...

A lymerick?

There was once a cramped and tiny space
Needing renvoation and a new face
Now it looks awesome and fetchin'
Celebrate our new familyroom and kitchen
At a holiday party in our new place.

(I wanted to have fetchin' start with b and rhyme perfectly with kitchen... but the message rejected! LOL!)

: )

Hey, Em, I came up with the 'b' word that rhymes with kitchen, too :)

I had a couple of thoughts the other night when I couldn't sleep. I had forgotten all about it until I read Em's post!

(Sung to the tune of Our House)
Our house
Was a very very very cramped house
With two cooks in the place
We really had no space
Now everything is easy 'cause it's new
(Shout out to fairegold for the song inspiration)

(Sung to the tune of My Bonnie)
My money went into my kitchen
My budget went over the moon
But everything really is b!tchen
Our first celebration is soon

You could have a header with something like RENOVATION CELEBRATION

There were more, but they have departed to wherever nighttime inspirations go...

RE: Calling all poets...

Oh God those are funny.

RE: Calling all poets...

One more:

There once was a couple whose kitchen
Was rich in the kitsch that needs switchin'
They labored and cursed
To make best out of worst
Now it's spacious, updated, and b!tchen!

I am laughing so hard I am crying. I may have to swipe one of these.

Seeking- love it, love it, love it!
