Blue Monday - Blue Tiles Guessing Game

It's Blue Monday! To participate: just click here for BLUE MONDAY INSTRUCTIONS or check out the instructions in my sidebar.

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links.

We were out and about one day last week and we stopped for lunch.

Always on the lookout for Blues, I couldn't help but snap a picture of these tiles that are inset into the table. Look at the beautiful array of Cobalt, Navy, and Baby Blues!

Can you guess the name of the restaurant? They have a special called "Two for Twenty"--one appetizer, two entrees, and one dessert for $20.

I'll insert the name here: Chili's at the end of today's Blue Monday.

PRETTY tile! Have a FABULOUS week... ENJOY!

ellen b. said...

The tiles are great but I'm afraid I can't name the restaurant!! Happy Blue Monday to you Sally...

Sherri said...

Oh I have no idea what the restaurant is. We probably don't have it in Canada! I love the tiles too. That would be so handy to put hot things on! Hope you have a great week, and thanks for everything you do for Blue Monday Sally!

Rinkly Rimes said...

Apologies for not including your URL on my blog this time. For some reason best known to Blogspot it kept deleting instead of 'pasting'. I hope people take the trouble to find your interesting blog!

Gayle said...

I'm going to guess Chili's.

Apron Senorita said...

It is definetly Chilli's. My sister Jessica invited us to dinner there last night. I was great.

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Applebee's one of my favorite places to eat...Hope you have a great day Sally...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Barbara Jean said...

Are we supposed to tell you the restaurant here?

I think it is Applebees.

Thanks for hosting

Susan (Between Naps On The said...

Even before I read the special meal deal, I thought...that looks like Chili's. :-)
Always love pretty tiles!
Happy Blue Monday!

C'est moi Claudette said...

i have no idea, but maybe I'll be in one in March lol
Happy Blue Monday Sally.

P.S. I think Randy wanted to hand me the "hairdryer" today. love all the cartoons Sally. And about global warming...we have it now haha

xinex said...

Beautiful tiles, Sally. I was going to guess Columbia Restaurant but I dont think they have anything that cheap in their menu, maybe Chili's or Applebee's?.....Christine

bj said...

Hi, Sally girl..
Well, the place that is offering the Two for Twenty here is called APPLEBEES. Not sure if they are located in FL or not...
xo bj

maria said...

No idea but those tiles sure are lovely. Happy Blue Monday!

Mine is here.

Carrie said...

I can't even guess at the name of the place, but I love the beautiful tile...great color combo!

Barb said...

Hi Sally, pretty tiles...I would guess Chili's. Love it.


Diann said...

2 for $20.00...Applebees

Irene said...

Hi Sally! Beautiful tiles! Happy blue monday!

RobinfromCA said...

It is definitely Chili's! We eat there all the time!!

Happy Blue Monday!

Mary Bergfeld said...

I see those lovely blue tiles. Unless I'm mistaken the restaurant is Chili's. I hope you're settling into your new home.

Self Sagacity said...

I find myself looking out for blues too. It's almost too rare in my world, but I agree, the shades of blue in your photo is very pretty.

NatureFootstep said...

a beautiful set of tiles Sally :)

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh Goodness,
I love tiled tables and that one is lovely! Thanks for hostessing Sally and I am wondering about your header pic? Did you take that pic, it's amazing! Cindy

Anonymous said...

Early morning, Most Blue Smiling One! Oh, what pretty tiles and I'm thinking Mexican! But don't have a clue. Next time call and see if they will do a 2 and one half! I won't eat much! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Luna said...

Hallo Sally, beautiful tiles!
Have a Beautiful Blue Monday!

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally. I think the place is called Applebees. We have one here that offers the same deal called FATZ. We do not have an Applebees here but I have heard the adv when in Atlanta. The tiles are gorgeous.

Visiting you in Florida is much on my mind. I am very excited about seeing everyone we can rustle up in Florida.

Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

Jeanne said...

Sally, did I tell you I adore your header. It sure makes me homesick for those wonderful birds. Did you take the photo? It is awesome.

Jeanne, again

raxx a day in the life said...

Happy Blue Monday Sally!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

It's got to be Applebee's! Happy Blue Monday!

Cindy said...

Is it Chilli's? Nice blues. Happy Blue Monday.

PattiVZ said...

Love the tiles from Chili's!

Unknown said...

Don't know restaurant but love that cobalt blue with the creamy yellow.

Dawn said...

I knew right away it was Chili's from your picture. It used to be one of our favorite places to eat. The one and only Chili's on the Cape closed a few years ago. Now, we need to drive off Cape to go to one.

take care,

storyteller said...

I'm stumped about the restaurant but love the tiles ... seems like Chili's is a possible but I've only eaten there a couple of times so it makes sense I wouldn't know.
Hugs and blessings,

Kim, USA said...

Hi Sally....I know there is going on in Applebees and Chili's been to Applebees to try it and it was good.

BM:Banner at school

Paula Grace Designs said...

Chilis??! I always see that commercial and think 'I need to go there.' Enjoy my Monday's Method! I also have a couple of polls I'd like folks to help me out on. Always a great party over here!

black eyed susans kitchen said...

Pretty tiles, Sally! The restaurant is definitely Chili' kids would all have their after play (high school productions) parties there because it was one of the only places that was still open late. I remember sitting on the other side of the restaurant (out of site) away from them before they got their licenses and could drive. Ah yes...happy, tired memories of Chili's.
♥, Susan

Nanna said...

I know about snapping pictures LOL I am so lost without my camera LOL we went antquing & I forgot the camera ohh it was sad for I seen lots of neat stuff! LOL LOL Happy Blue MOnday!

annies home said...

what a pretty pattern and my guess would be Chillis

Salmagundi said...

It must be Chili's! The table looks just like the one here in our little town in Colorado. When we are there, I'm always thinking about quilt patterns as I look at the table. Sally

Americana Lady said...

Sally thank you for visiting my first blog post. I think the restaurant is Applebees. I look forward to visiting posts today! Enjoy your week

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Great tiles. I so agree, I think it's Chili's. Hugs, Marty

Musings of A Minister said...

Chili's. I love the special deal. They do have tables like that. Applebee's has a special offer like that too but I don't think their table tops are like that. Yep, I think it's Chili's.

Jeanne said...

Sally, I just realized I didn't link your blog today. I am so sorry. I am fixing it now.

Hugs, Jeanne

Paula said...

Those are nice-looking tiles you got there. :)
Paula's Place

Crystal said...

I love the mosaic tiles. I was just at Chili's last night, I did not see that special on the menu. Everything we had was delicious though, as usual. Maybe ours does not do that special all day. I also know that Applebee's does that special too.

Thanks for hosting and sharing!

Rattlebridge Farm said...

Sally, the tiles are beautiful. Thank you for letting me join in this week to celebrate the color blue.

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Up here the "Two for Twenty" deal is Applebee's. BUT---I do think that Chili's has the same type of tables. SO---guess it could be either one...

Happy Blue Monday to you.

Baba said...

I love the tiles on the table... I would guess a Mexican restaurant.. have a fun day... hugs, Baba

Chubskulit Rose said...

Hi Sally, I love that design! I am a little late this time but as they say "better late than never" right hehehe. Have a great week ahead!

Party Favors

♥ Kathy said...

I think it's Chili's but I'm not sure...Happy Blue Monday Sally ♥

Momgen said...

It looks cute. Thanks for coming by...Happy blue Monday.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

It is Chili's....I've eaten there several times!

Dixie said...

my favorite family restaurant hangout... Chili's!

Denise Marie said...

Happy Monday, Sally...I think it is Applebees or TGIFridays. Our Chilies has those tables but not the 2 for $20 deals.

Anonymous said...

Oh boy, I like the tiles, looks like the ones my sister has in her bathroom. But I don't know what restaurant, guess I don't get out much.

Mary said...

I love Mexican tile, it's so beautiful! happy Blue Monday, Mary :O)

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Sally, thank you so much for inviting me to link up to your Blue Monday meme. I have so little blue that I use and just forget to join. I am trying to collect more blue and will participate much more often. I always read all the wonderful posts, I just didn't think I had anything to join with. Thanks for reminding me. You are the best ever. Hugs, Marty

Love Of Quilts said...

Joined your blue monday.Will be something to look forward to. I already visit the blogs to see what people have to share.

❀~Myrna~❀ said...

I think that table is from Chili's & they have the 2 for $20 in my part of NC right now.

Diane at Crafty Passions said...

I dont think we have that restaurant here in Canada...
Its very pretty tho !
Have a great week!

Lindsay-ann said...

Hi Sally
Those tiles are so pretty. Thank you for sharing them.
Happy Blue Monday.

Marice said...

wow what an interesting tiles :)

Dianna said...

The name of the restaraunt where the tile tabletop is located is Chili's! I love blue and yellow together...I've spent a little time in Mexico and when we recently visited Chili's the table tops really caught my eye because looking at it brought back memories of visiting so many places in Mexico City and meeting the people who crafted them!

Pretty -- though I'd hate to be the one to clean spilled stuff from the grooves, LOL!

I think I have heard that ad for Applebee's. I have only been there once, though.

Lindy said...

Those are gorgeous tiles! I would guess Chili's, though I haven't been there in quite some time.

Though late in the day, my Blue Monday post is now up.

I LOVE these tiles! The colors and intricate designs are beautiful. Thanks for hosting Blue Monday. This is my first, and I'm happy to be participating!!

Sarah said...

Wonderful tiles. They remind me of the tiles in our guest bath that are original to our house built in the 30s. I think they are from Spain. Always enjoy Blue Monday. Thanks for hosting! ~ Sarah

Picket said...

Hey got all your dodads unpacked yet?!!! I have no idea what place those pretty tiles are in...I have never seen those at the Cracker Barrel!lol
I love your sweet header pic!!!!! Ohhhh I could just squeeze those sweet baby cranes....did you take that pic?
That jar with the flowers in it has a lid with holes in it and the blogger neighbors said it was called a 'frog' like the florists use to make flower arrangements...thus it is a frog jar!!!! lol You take care sweet friend and have a great week!

joyh82 said...

What beautiful tiles! Have a great week Sally!

Susan B said...

Pretty tiles! The only 2 for $20 I know about is at Applebee's. We had lunch there today.

LV said...

Sorry I am late with my comments, but we had a warm, 70 degree day here. I have been in my yard. I am so tired now, but wanted you to know I have eaten at a table like this. I am not sure but I think it is Chili's too. Where ever, the tile table is pretty.

Unknown said...

oh i like the blue color tiles...very pretty.

thanks for the visit Sally

Bargain Decorating with Laurie said...

I love those tiles! I've seen those tables in several restaurants, and I always want to go home and tile a tabletop. Is it Chili's? laurie

Anonymous said...

Oh, beautiful tiles! I like the blue accents in them...

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, I was wrong about the two for one place. Since we have very few chain places to eat here. I guess I am forgiven. HA!

I am waiting to see how your new home decor is coming along. When are you going to share it with us?

Have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Jeanne

Maude Lynn said...

I love that tile!

April said...

I know, I's Chili's!!! I'd recognize that tile anywhere! :)

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

I love Chili's! Once when my daughter was a young teen she ordered the guiltless chicken only she told the waitress she would have the gutless chicken. We all cracked up!

Have a beautifully blessed day sweet Sally!!!

Unknown said...

Thats a nice olor combination though, Never been to chili's, shame on me hehe. thanks for sharing Ms Sally.

I missed this week BM. have a good day!

Anonymous said...

I guess I wouldn't know since I live halfway across the globe :-)And yes, I think the tiles altogether is beautiful and to have your table looking like this is something :-)


(sorry 'bout the bugs in my blog.)

Regina said...

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Applebee's down the street has a special like that but I'm probably wrong.

Sally please send me your e-mail address. I lost it when my computer crashed and when I went on your site to get it this computer won't let me. It just says error.

Very pretty blues, Sally ~ My, you have a lot of comments!
