This tablescape was for the Women's Christmas Tea at my church (this explains the gawdy number and the odd appetizer on a plastic plate). We built our table around the verse about the bridegroom (Jesus) returning for her bride (that's us, by the way). I cannot take credit for the idea - it was my best friend's idea but I was part of the execution - the very fun execution. The best part of this table is that everything was borrowed. Everything. This supports my theory that not everything has to be owned to be enjoyed!
Pioneer Woman camera giveaway...but no dice yet. Let me show you another picture and then share the details.
The cake was a 'mannequin' cake from a local bakery. This is where my best friend bought her wedding cake and she asked if we could borrow it for a day. They agreed. I love agreeable people, don't you? I picked it up in the pouring rain and was scared to death it was going to melt. Maybe someday I will pay them back by using them to make my wedding cake.
The chargers, roses, vases, and tea lights were donated from a local, Atlanta florist. (In the future, I will share their information - it escapes me in this moment). We were hoping for little arrangements but were thankful for the free roses, too. The china was a friend of ours. The silver was my best friend's mother-in-law's silver. The presents were the only thing we bought and they were a gorgeous multi-dimensional cross ornament from Hobby Lobby. Here I am modeling one for you after a long day of Christmas madness.
I hope you enjoy the wedding table as much as we did setting it. There were some women really blessed that night...in ways that will ring into eternity!
