Tabletop Decorating

Yes, people actually sat at this table and ate a meal under the "wreath tree" we put together with a small tree branch, a sprig of greenery from the shop and 5 of our small preserved boxwood wreaths . Since we didn't have a light fixture over our table to hang the wreaths from, we fashioned something tall enough to accommodate them. The napkin rings were turquoise ribbon with green polka-dots. I think our friend was right when she asked "why not the silver ornaments?" After looking at the picture, you can barely see the green glass ornaments because they blended into the larger boxwood wreath on the table. If we would have had our silver votive holders from last year, they would have looked nice at each table setting, too. It was amazing how much the table filled in after the glasses were set on the table. Glass adds to the sparkle, as does the battery operated candles that were used by several tables---a great idea!

The occasion was the "Women's Festival of Tables" and it was put on by the First Baptist Church of Joplin. The speaker was really inspiring and it was great to connect with old friends and meet new ones.

If you have a tablescape to create this season or for a special event, stop in and see if we have that extra sparkle you need for your centerpiece. We'll definitely have something that sparkles!
