I am sharing this post over at Stephanie's Roses Of Inspiration party! One you don't want to miss, it is filled with beautiful blogs and inspiration!
Every spring the Women's Ministries Board hosts a Tea Party with a theme and this year it was Aprons! Oh the wonderful Aprons and the stories that went with them were fabulous!!! I decided to go ahead and make cute ones for me and the girls but remembered that youngest had purchased a darling apron a few months back so she was set. I made mine and my other daughters...they turned out cute. Here we are, what do you think? If you look closely at mine I have flowers, Teapots and teacups all over my fabric.
Behind us was a wall filled with aprons from the early 20's on up!!! One of the gals gave a story on the history of Aprons and it was NEAT!!!!
So I hosted my table, brought my china to church and set up my table.....I stopped at Michaels and picked up a few things...mainly the flowers for the centerpiece...they were 60 % off! What a steal!
I woke up VERY early the day of the tea to see my hubby off and well I figured I was up I might as well make myself do something so I made name cards, I love love love K & Company, see post below and so I used K&Company cardstock and embellishments.
For each of the ladies at my table I gave them a cute teapot hatpin made by me, they loved them! It brings me such joy that they appreciated the little gift.
Next up is the way I rolled the silverware, very inexpesive but it looks lovely. I took the silverware rolled it in a napkin, then rolled it in a doily, tied it with a sheer pink ribbon and embellished it with a K & Company butterfly embellishment and stuck the hatpin in the ribbon area. ( I noticed after I took the picture my doily slipped out of position....forgot to take another photo after I fixed it!!! sigh.....
Next photo is the table....I had so much fun setting it up....wish you all could have been there with me! We had a most delightful time and the speaker was lovely. I made sure every setting had a different teacup.
.....thanks for stopping by and remember ....God Loves you!
