Tea for Two...OR...Two for Tea

I did it......I wasn't sure if I had the energy to do all the work, but the creative side of me kicked in and I was able to complete two Tablescapes for two different Ladies luncheons.   

The difficult side of this was the fact that both luncheons were held on the same day....{TODAY} and they were in two different locations.  

My niece, who attends church at our local Methodist church.....volunteered to host a table.  

When she told me about this, I  knew that I would be doing this table.  Tammy has a few disabilities, and it is sometimes very difficult for her to do things like this.   However, I knew she wanted to be a I said YES....I would help her.

What I didn't know {at the time} was that my own church would be hosting a Mother's Day luncheon on the same day.  {TODAY}

Did I mention that at Tammy's table....each host is responsible for providing desserts for their table?  YEP....I needed to make desserts for that luncheon.

  My niece...Tammy.  She is so sweet, and is always willing to help.

The dishes I used for Tammy's table are called "Liberty Blue."
Easy...I would just use an American theme here.  

Sorry...this is the only photo I took of Tammy's table.  This picture was taken prior to adding the yellow napkin rings, the mini Bundt cakes and the chair covers!


For my table.....the theme was
"Lemonade Stand"

My guest had a choice.....Lemonade, Hot tea, or just a plain ol' glass of Southern Sweet tea!

My girls....enjoying the tea.

Needless to say...I am tired tonight!

Glad I had the opportunity to help my niece and happy that both luncheons were a great Blessing to the women in our Community.

Once I started reading, I was so hoping you would show the tables, and you DID!!! YEAH! They are wonderful, you are so talented. I think the lemonade one may be my favorite by just a bit. I love the checkered lids on the jars, and the pale teal and yellow colors. I love the chair back on your header!! A chalkboard? Did you make it?

Hi Shug!

Adorable!! What beautiful table settings, you are very talented! Your niece is lucky to have you, ready and willing to lend a helping hand. Your ideas for both tables were just beautiful, and so much fun!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
