I know things have been kind of quiet around here lately. To give you an idea of what I am up against at home. My kiddos are on swim team and it is taking over our life.
And then there is this little darling. He is adorable, but he is a mess.
I did get to help decorate for an event at my church this past week. There is a ministry for the widows in our church and I love this sweet group of ladies. Here is my inspiration for the centerpieces.
I needed to create 12 centerpieces so I went to my workshop and started pulling books and vessels for the flowers. This was one of my first attempts.
I brought everything up to the venue and my girlfriend brought and arranged the flowers. Most of these things are from France with a few Texas treasures mixed in. I love how everything turned out and the ladies had a wonderful evening.
Hand embroidered linen, with old books and a French tin, all things I love.
I found these 2 giant enamel tea pots during a shopping trip in Waterloo, Belgium. I love all things enamelware so these came home with me without question. Seeing them full of flowers and welcoming ladies to a fabulous evening seemed like a wonderful use for them.
I hope you enjoyed this walk through the tea party. I love getting to use and share my treasures with those I love.
