2009 Christmas Tea Tablescapes

For our Second Annual Christmas Tea [2009] I signed a contract with Enchantment Banquet Facility, and they allowed us to do our own tablescapes.  12 ladies volunteered to set 13 tables, completely different from the preceding year. 
Our only fundraiser at this tea was a household [small items] silent auction, and below is what my living room looked like after wrapping all the donated items for display.  Santa's workshop!  ;-)
Here they are on display at the banquet center.
The hall was beautifully decorated for Christmas.
1st Place Table - "Tea Time"
Runner-Up Table - "Angels Around Us"
"Old Country Roses"
"Season's Greetings"
"Antique Christmas Bulbs"

"Purple Peace"
"Carol's Cozy Corner" 

"The Music & Magic of Christmas Morning"

"Winter Wonderland"

"Snow Babies"
"Blue Serenity"

"Butterfly Kisses"


Our entertainment was a vocal trio [sisters], and a floral arrangement demonstration by a local florist.  The arrangement was given away as a door prize.
It's become a tradition for Kelly to read Tom Hegg's book, "A Cup of Christmas Tea" at our Christmas Teas. 
 Here's what 109 ladies at a Christmas tea party looks like! 
This is my sweet daughter, Lori, who is always supportive of my tea endeavors!
Please come back tomorrow for 2010's Christmas Tea with a whole new group of tablescapes.


  1. Wow, more beautiful tablescapes! This looks like so much fun, I would love to be part of one of these teas some day. I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite from these, isn't it nice to just enjoy them all? Thanks for sharing them with us.

  2. What wonderful tablescapes! Everyone must've had such a great time. You and your daughter are beautiful. I'm your newest follower :) I'd love for you to follow me back

  3. What a beautiful tea party, each table just a delight.
    How lovely to have the support of your daughter also.

  4. I think I am all caught up on the years of tea tables. What great fun!!! Very clever ladies. So many personal touches. So special.
    Enjoyed them all so much.

  5. I wish all your photos could be compiled in a nice picture book, because I'd be turning to it again and again for inspiration! (But at least I can come back here and look at the great blog photos!)
