I had the honor of hostessing a table at our Church's first "Intergenerational Tea"...It was so much fun to bring so many women together in friendship and fellowship on a rainy, cool Saturday! I loved using my grandmother's china, beautiful linens and silver! I was channeling my Mom back home who taught me to love flowers at a very young age - although she has mad skills...I just try and emulate her! Fussing over flowers, table settings, and finding the right "favor" is truly a creative outlet for me, one that lets me express myself, fills my bucket and always puts a smile on my face. I love to honor my friends and family this way too...never doing it to impress (although always nice to hear the compliments)...just really doing it for me and those I love!
Each hostess was responsible for her own table settings and centerpieces...it was so much fun to see every one's tables - all lovely and original! There was a 'tea bar" - many flavors to choose from and all the food was homemade and donated by Church friends! We also had a wonderful speaker who discussed her volunteer work in our community to fund cancer support and medical help! It was just a happy, happy day!
Other pretty things...
My friend Claudia's table was gorgeous in green...black&white! Loved her centerpiece with limes and lime green Hydrangea!
She made each of her guests a flower pin to wear...so clever!
I loved the glass bottles of "Voss" water...a really fun
and modern twist!
A few of my sweet friends and table mates!
