Tablescape Thursday~Church Tea

For this week's Tablescape Thursday, hosted by Susan, at Between Naps on The Porch, I am featuring a table from our Ladies Tea at our church this past Friday. Andrea was the hostess of her table, and she had the most amazing tablescape! I'm afraid pictures don't do it justice as the lighting was so low, but I hope you can get the idea....

So here it's with a flash..

and here without the flash..I am not sure which is better!

Remember, you can click on to enlarge and take in all the eye candy!!

I love these napkin holders!!

This is a close-up of one side of the table's centerpiece..

And here's the other side..a sweet baking Santa!! :-)

I love the vase full of peppermints holding the berry arrangement!!

This is the lovely and talented and very sweet Andrea who made her table so magical!!
Thanks, Andrea, for letting me feature your table!!

This morning a reporter and photographer from The Sacramento Bee are coming to do an article on our house for the holidays! I am so excited! I've cleaned this house within an inch of it's life, set the table as if for a tea party, edited the kitchen to the point of model home-esqe style. Oh how fun  (and nerve-wracking) it's been! So, I'll let you know how it all turns out..I'm not quite sure what to expect, but will just go with the flow!
And it just so happens that on Friday, Julia, from Hooked on Houses, is hosting a Holiday Home Tour, so stay tuned and on Friday I will reveal my holiday home!! :-)
