Preparing For A Tea Party
For weeks now I have been preparing for our Ladies Tea at church. I host every year and love doing it. It's so fun for me to think up ideas and to see how they work out.
This year, I was going a direction based on a roll of ribbon that Rachel found, but then we were at Christmas Tree Shops and saw some vintage looking globe ornaments. We were both really taken with them, and that is when I thought we could do a "Christmas Around The World" theme!
We are doing the table centerpieces with items from different countries. Peru, Holland, Bulgaria, Great Britain, Ukraine, Senegal are the ones we are doing. Each guest will get a ornament to take home and a handout of traditions from other countries, also as a take home item. We also have a guest speaker this year, author and speaker Karen Andreola.
Tomorrow I begin the process of packing up my tea cups and glass luncheon plates to take to the church, and we will set up the tables tomorrow evening.
I'll take lots of photos, as always, and will share them with you for Friday.
