Tablescape Thursday .. Christmas Tea II

Yippee it’s Tablescape Thursday time .. Don’t y’all just love this weekly blog event .. I know I do .. I just love seeing all the different styles out there and getting so many ideas for my own table. Many many thanks to Susan and all those that make this event so fun and entertaining each week.


As promised I’m sharing the last 2 tables from our Church Christmas Tea last month .. My favorite pick of all the tables and my table.

First up .. My Favorite Table .. Sister Betty’s Table!! This is what my table wants to be when it grows up next year lol .. Sister Betty had her Handy Dandy Husband Bro James come in the night before the Tea and hang this awesome chandelier that she had picked up at a local thrift store and morphed into this awesome piece of beauty. These first couple of photos were taken the night of set up .. so over look the crooked candles and the bags of trash in the background.


Love Love Love the Pink with the Gold…


Sister Betty made all of the napkins rings.. The pink & gold jewels were Christmas ornaments that she picked up last year.


Crystal glazed gold Angels with small gift box of chocolates was her gift to her guests.


All of the dangling jewels were also added by Sister Betty .. The Centerpiece Candelabra was also a thrift store find that she redid.. love it resting on the gold mirror. When I was visiting her the other day she was already changing that mirror .. adding lil knobs to the bottom to give it height .. She’s so talented. Next trip to her house I promise I will have my camera!!


Lol I grabbed a chair for this next shot .. that poor chair! On the bottom left of the photo below you’ll notice those clear plastic plates I told y’all about last week.


The night of the Tea .. There’s Sister Betty lighting all those candles.

Mercury Glass jars with the Gold Angels  sitting on top .. love this! There’s Sister Betty again getting things perfect.

Now … My Little Table.. Winter Wonderland..


I hung clear and silver snowflakes above the table.. They sparkled in the candle light. My China is what y’all have seen me use before .. I refer to it as my “Connie China” is really Somerset.

These are the candelabras that I showed y’all on Met Monday’s post..


Mercury Glass Vase used in centerpiece is from Target that I picked up after Christmas last year.. I think I’ll add some knobs for legs to that mirror it’s sitting on too.


Placemats.. Napkins and Silver Chargers are Martha Stewart Collection from K-mart that I picked up last year after Christmas. The Napkin Rings are actually Christmas ornaments that I picked up from Hobby Lobby.


Below .. My gift to my guests .. A Mercury vase candle holder with Silver & Crystal Sun Catcher Cross. You can’t really see them that well .. but I finally got to use my Disciple glasses that I bought from Goodwill last summer!

I didn’t get a photo of them .. but I tried to dress up the chairs a bit .. using blue, silver & white ribbon with large bows.


In the candle light… after the lights went out.
