Tablescape Thursday

Go to Susan's blog at Between Naps on the Porch for more beautiful and creative tablescapes.
Last week I posted pictures of my church's women's group's "Spring Fling" from last year. Today I am showing this year's "Springtime".
This first picture is an overview of the entire room.

We used to always set the long banquet-style table side by side, but lately we've been forming them into a U-shape, so that no one has their back to anyone else when we're seated.
I used white tablecloths, and skirted the inside of the U-shape, then put the centerpieces and decorations along the inside edge of the U.

I used green placemats with wicker "chargers" and pink plates. The green napkins and pink tableware sat in the individual "napkin thingy" holders I made.


All the chairs were covered in white, with alternating pink and green ties. Pink and green tulle, topped by silk ivy made the runners. I used glass cylinder candle holders with green candles, and little votive cups from the 99 Cent Store held miniature bouquets of silk roses and hydrangeas. I made three "scenes" in jars for the centerpieces - each contained a birdhouse, birdnest and a music scroll that had the words "His Eye Is On The Sparrow".


This is a tea cart that sits behind the banquet tables.


The food table had my large decorated-with-bird-things birdcage as the centerpiece, and tall silver buckets of fuschia, green, and white gerbera daisies flanked the ends.


Tomorrow I'll have pics of the cute "nest" things I made, as well as the rest of the yummy food the ladies made, on Foodie Friday. Stay tuned!

Very festive! I love the colors! The U shape is a great idea. I hate being in a group and not feeling like I got to visit with everyone!...Debbie

Very pretty. Loved the color combination. I loved the ties on the chair-they really popped! The tulle was pretty as a runner too. Great job!

That is so beautiful, Brenda. I bet the ladies look so forward to these get-togethers and probably don't want to mess up anything because it's so gorgeous!

Wow, what a lot of thought and creativity you put into your beautiful tablescape. Can I join your Church? Great job using the U shape to promote conversation.

I just adore all of your table decorations...what a special banquet! I'm sure all of your people just had a great time!!! I pastored a church many years ago (for about 15 yrs.)...I got in on a few of those banquets too! hehe! But they were always so much fun and great fellowship!

I love pink & green together. Tablescape turned out great!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Pink and green are sooooo lovely together -- your group did a wonderful job with this gathering. Lovely! Cass

Mary said...

Oh, how pretty! It must have been a tremendous amount of work, but it looks divine!

My Crafty Little Page said...

Great job, B. I'll bet the women loved it and what a great nesting theme. Did you have a budget? or do you do this on your own. I'm always decorating for my church and the women never want to spend any $. Get's challenging after a while. Thanks for the ideas. Have a wonderful week. :)Nancy
