Tea Table Theme: Tea Time to Remember










The winning table at Tea Time with the Berea Health Ministry was "Tea Time to Remember" sponsored by Davis and Powell Funeral Directors and hosted by Patty D. She used an elegant mix of antique and family heirloom china and table linens to decorate her table. Her centerpiece was a gilt tree branch in a pearl filled crystal vase on and gold and white background that incorporated a photo from each table guest of departed family members (hanging from the branches). This was surrounded by battery operated candles in gold votive cups which each guest lighted as she told a story about her featured family member. (We did not allow real candles to be burned).
Patty received a Longaberger oval market basket full of tea goodies I provided. Congratulations Patty!
I appreciate the table judges, Teresa, Thana, Belle, Carol and Melissa for the work they put into judging the table themes. I am just glad I was not a judge!

Linda,

Thanks for sharing each of the tables. They were all beautiful, but I can see why the winner was the winner.

Loved seeing the tables. Do you have a source for "How To" do a table hosted fund raising tea?
