in December as well as Valentine's Day and Mother's Day Teas. Both of my daughters have attended events there when they were young.
As with most things worth saving and no money to do it, they hold fundraisers throughout the year and my partner in crime Linda Porhat of Linda's Party Designs and I participated in the Tablesetting Fundraiser Wednesday and Thursday. We narrowed our theme down to Morroccan and have haunted the thriftstores and all the Pier Ones, TJ Maxx's and Ross' to find items to create our vision. We made chair ties, sewed tablecloths and bejeweled plates (you know Linda has to have her sparkle). It all came together for the public viewing starting at 11:00 am and yesterday was the catered luncheon. This being our first year to participate, we weren't sure what to expect but "WOW" it was 42 tables of high energy people supporting a great cause and the creativity of the tablesetters. So, want to see our table....
Starting with a round table...
|Tablecloth to the floor and beaded trim added to the topper...oooh shimmery|
Reds, terracotta and purple pulled from our fabric inspired our color palette.
|The placesetting up close and personal with the jeweled chargers. A huge "Thank You" to|
Diana Pleitez of Pleitez Lavender for providing the yummy lavender truffles in our favors.
The ladies loved them!
|Elephants On Parade!|
It was dark in the hall, so not the best lighting for pictures but here is the finished table. Elephant candleholders and the peacock feathers and flowers in the urn on top of the gilded small table for drama and height.
