Some of you may know that my church helps sponsor a brunch every year the Saturday before Mother's Day. There are about 35 tables set up and then we all volunteer to decorate the tables with a theme.
In the past the decorating involved a center piece and a complete table setting for 6, dishes, silverware and glasses. Well thankfully this year they changed it up a little and all we had to do is provide a center piece. So much easier on me since I usually have the task of 6-8 tables. I'm home, linens in the washers and stuff put away. This usually takes me over 4 hours and I did it in 1 hour.
Well with that said I'm going to share what I did.
Pictures were taken with my phone, so hope you can see everything OK.
This was a baking theme, no I did not make the cupcakes.
I got the green container at Gordmans, where I work and it was so inexpensive. I put some real fuzzy like flowers in it along with these crazy $1.00 store smiley flowers. Oh, so colorful.
This is a sweet, girly table. Wire dress forms, feathers, beads, pearls and netting.
All pink, which is really not me.
Lemons and Limes. This is simple and always looks nice. I found the table cloth at Kohl's on sale for $6.00. It really made the table.
S'more Forrest. This theme was borrowed from my daughter-in-laws baby shower. The log bases were made by a friends husband and he drilled holes in the top for the sucker sticks to go into. Who doesn't have a few small xmas type trees, add some burlap, rocks and a candle. Oh, and of course, S'more Pops.
The Wise Owl table. Little did I know that this would be the table that was a hit. Owls are very big right know and fortunately we have zillions of them at Gordmans. Believe it or not the base started with a rubber tree ring (the fake mulch), then I layered a flat synthetic walking stone over the tree hole. Put the birch tree, decorative rocks and the Owl's. I think I have 9.
Ok, so now back to my craftroom. Enjoy you weekend.
