I love participating in memes and this one is fabulous! Marty from A Stroll Thru Life, is hosting Table Top Tuesday and we can decorate pretty much any tabletop! This is right up my alley, because I love decorating tables. I was a little discouraged when we turned our dining room into my husband's office, because I lost my table, but after looking at Marty's blog, I'm excited about decorating different tabletops. They don't have to be eating tables, so that gives me more room to work with! Since I just discovered this late, I don't have anything set up, but I really wanted to join. Soooo, I pulled some pics from a Victorian tea that we had at our church a couple of years ago. We each decorated a table in our own theme and then our guests who purchased tickets from us, sat at our table. I'm an amateur at this, but it was fun to test my skills!
My table didn't really have a theme, but I made my color scheme from my china design. I used my china that I bought from a former church member when we lived in San Antonio. She sold them in a church yard sale, and I paid $15 for the set!!!
I purchased most of the accessories from Wal-Mart. I started to use confetti on the table, but I thought the "ice" rocks and mirrored candle plates looked more elegant.
I wrapped candy coated jordan almonds and put them in each teacup as a party favor.
This is a close-up of my china. I got the chargers at the Salvation Army for $0.50 each! I needed eight and there was actually a huge stack of them!
Here's me in my Victorian finery! lol
It was a really fun event and I hope we do it again. I'm thinking of a beach theme this time!
I'm a blessed mom with a sweet husband and six beautiful children. I love the Lord and want to do all that I can to please Him! I love going to church and participating in church-related activities. I love doing things for my family and just hanging out with them. I love all things girly, like purses, clothes, shoes, jewelry and makeup! I sell Avon and love watching women light up with the products they purchase. I love my life and thank God for it! I hope that this blog can be a blessing to others as others have been to me!
