Ohio State Buckeyes Table

Tonight is the first Ohio State Football game of the season!  We Buckeyes love our football!
So I put together a quick table for some football action fun tonight.
The plain stack of scarlet and grey, black and white plates need a little pizazz.
So I purchased an OSU logo package on Etsy for $3.00 and downloaded the designs to my computer.
I printed these out on card stock, cut them out with my Silhouette and just placed the larger round logo under my glass plates.  That was an economical way to jazz up place setting.
If you don't recognize the guy I used on my napkin ring - that is Brutus Buckeye the Ohio State Mascot!
I have to thank my neighbor, Bill, for providing me with some real buckeyes!!
Buckeye trees are Ohio's state tree. The nut it produces is actually poisonous, it got its name because it resembles the eye of a deer.
So yes, our Mascot is an odd little guy that is fashioned after a poisonous nut!!
But we still love him!
So to all you Buckeye Fans out there O-H. . . .
Here's to a fun and safe football season no matter what team you are rooting for!

Thanks for stopping by!
Ann

  1. What a fun table! It's football and tailgate time again, and I'm not really ready for it. Thanks for sparking some football table ideas. No Buckeye fans at our house, but we're all rooting for some team somewhere! :-)

  2. Ann, I love college football and I think your table is perfect! My SIL graduated from Ohio State, so she is the only Buckeye in our family. We are big Alabama "Roll Tide fans! Good luck to you all tonight!

  4. What a fun table! Great idea printing out the images for the football team. I didn't know that about the buckeye nuts being poisonous.
