Home for the Holidays Luncheon Pix
I have a few pix of the ladies luncheon.
I made the drapes and the large HOPE and Joy words for the stage. Also, there are several Hope and Joy framed words that I painted picture frames, used the satin fabric for the background and then sewed the letters to the backing and hung around the room. The words came from HL, but Hope was black so I had to paint those silver and then use silver glitter paint.
My first table was set with the Holly china that I got at GdWl last summer, $11.25 for a 45 pc service for 8!!
The CP was made using a large brass candlestick, a TS candlering, and some TS gold filigree ornies. I used a dowel stuck in the candlestick, added a gold glittered styrofoam ball, and a gold TS tree at the top!
The Believe ornaments were the table gifts for my guests.
The second table was a Snowman table.
I found the ceramic snowman bisque at GdWl. He had been fired but not painted so I painted him to match the Gibson Snowman dishes I was using on the table.
Each guest received a wrapped porcelain ornament.
The green napkins were folded to look like trees and I added some gold stars to the top. Also, both tables had butter I molded using silicone molds. The Snowman
table had snowmen butter and the Holly table had tree shaped butter.
I found 3 different glass containers at Home Goods, added midnight blue ribbon bows, silver pillar candles, and silver ball ornaments in each container. They were placed on some of the drapery fabric, using various items as lifts under the fabric and then surrounded with silver mesh and a silver garland. The buffet tables are set up in a cross and these are at the intersection of the cross.
The dessert table had more blue fabric, some silver florals, silver beads from a TS, and a nativity set I found at Gdwl last summer, both pieces for $6. The silver tray I found at another TS for $2 and it is holding the mini cheesecakes I made for my dessert.
I had to get all of these items transported to the church and then take it all down when the luncheon was over.
Fortunately, the drapes, large words, glass containers, and silver garland stayed at the church. All of the little silver trees were also mine.
It was a lovely day and my DM, 2 DD's, oldest DGD, DSIl, and a Dear Friend of 35 yrs were guests at the Holly table.
I'll post house decor later.
