Tea Table Theme: A Kentucky Tea

This table decorated by Karen showcases her daughter Lori's collection of Bybee Pottery. Bybee, located here in Madison County is he oldest existing pottery west of the Allegheney Mountains. The clay used to make this pottery is found just 3 miles from Bybee. History records this same clay was mined by the first settlers of Kentucky and taken to Ft. Boonesborough to be used to make crude dishes. Bybee is a small pottery and limits the amount of products they make.
By the way, Berea where this tea was held is officially "the Folk Arts & Crafts Capital of Kentucky."

Tea Table Theme: Race for the Cure

"Race for the Cure" combines two special October events, Breast Cancer Awareness month and the fall meet (October only) at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, KY. Linda R. and Joyce decorated this table sponsored by Linville Insurance because we need to be "racing for the cure."

Tea Table Theme: Bountiful Harvest

"Bountiful Harvest" was sponsored by several ladies of Wallaceton Baptist Church and hosted by Judy Fritz. The fresh vegetable and sunflower centerpiece was outstanding! Everything was pulled together with the fruit themed dinnerware and the colors of the table linens.
A very special thank you to Judy for making tea sandwiches!!!
