The church Ladies' Spring Tea theme in 2009 was "Springtime in Paris." This completes my blog posts on the five spring teas I've coordinated at church to date. Who knows what next year's theme will be, but the possibilities are endless.

Since we were on an imaginary trip to Paris, there was a table at the entrance of the dining room with personalized luggage tags. It was not only each lady's favor to take home, but it also told her the table where she would be seated.
A young lady at church painted a Parisian scene on a large piece of fabric for her school's senior prom, and I borrowed it to use as a back drop for photographing ladies at the tea. It was a nice way of reinforcing the Parisian theme too.

The color scheme was pink and black with miniature Eiffel Towers as centerpieces. It was beautiful! That's pink rosewater in the glasses.

One of the young ladies at church was a high school French teacher. She spent two summers in Paris while in college, in addition to taking her students on trips to Paris. She had many wonderful photos, and our program was a tour of Paris via her PowerPoint presentation.
