Now that it seems blogger is going to be kind enough to let me post pictures again, I have some "back tracking" to do! The Tues after Thanksgiving, we had our Annual Ladies Christmas Dinner at our church. This was the third year and it has grown from about 50 in attendance to almost 300 this year. Individuals agree to decorate a table and invite others to sit at their table. A delicious dinner was served (best green beans I have ever tasted! When I get the recipe, I will share it), door prizes were given out, and a beautiful Christmas message was shared by the director of a local Christian Crisis Pregnancy and Adoption Center. This was the table I decorated.
I am so grateful for our Dollar Tree store where everything really does cost a dollar. I got the napkins, "JOY" ornaments, the red and silver balls, and the silver poinsettias there. I bought the silver chargers at Wal Mart for 96 cents each.
I already had the dishes, silverware, glasses, and red tablecloth. My "other" mother provided the silver tray, glass cake plate and hurricane vase. Place cards were made from cardstock and stickers.
There were many beautiful tables...reflecting the taste and personality of the decorators.
and delightful people!
My "other" mother, Miss Sally and my dear friend
(and former office manager), Kandi.
My sweet daughter.
And my "bosom buddy", Danna.
It was a wonderful evening.
Many people worked hard to make it so!
Some ladies have told me they already have
their table for next year planned.
Me? I need a little more time! :-)
