Welcome to Susan's (Between Naps on the Porch) 115th Tablescape Thursday! Wow! Susan has done such a wonderful job hosting~not to mention all her fabulous tablescapes, tips and tricks she shares. ;-)
I am also linking up with Vignette Friday at Color Outside the Lines
My submission is the tablescape I did for our church's Mentor Moms for our Mom to Mom group..the mentor moms encourage and support the (mostly) young moms that come to our bi-monthly meetings with guest speakers, brunch, and fellowship. My friend and partner, Pauline and I oversee the mentor moms~and we wanted to love on them and let them know how special they are.
Pauline made a delicious lunch of cranberry chicken salad sandwiches on fresh baked croissants, lovely green salad, and assorted bars and cookies for dessert.
And using mostly her things, I arranged the tablescape.
Thirteen women were coming, and Pauline wanted everyone to be included at the table..so her handy husband just 'whipped' out an extension to the table using plywood and table legs..cutting it in proportion to the existing table..I had two matching tablecloths and layered two of Pauline's tablecloths and worked from there.
I purchased the paper plates and napkins from Tuesday Morning...Pauline's china, crystal, and gold chargers complimented it nicely.
I arranged the buffet to hold the dessert, and beverages~iced tea, iced water, and coffee..
Not needing the tiered serving piece for dessert, I made a fall arrangement on each level..
Candles make everything feel more special!
We had a lovely time in Pauline's warm and inviting home.
