Tea Party at Church

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.IMG_0334

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. IMG_0341

Hand embroidered linen, with old books and a French tin, all things I love. IMG_0343IMG_0344IMG_0345IMG_0346

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. IMG_0347IMG_0349

I hope you enjoyed this walk through the tea party. I love getting to use and share my treasures with those I love.IMG_0350

  1. I know what you mean about swim team taking over your life. My girls were on swim teams for years. Your centerpieces turned out beautifully. I pinned several of them for future reference. Happy to see you back and thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!
