Tea Table Themes

# 1 daughter, Melissa, visited this weekend.  While she was here, we decided on our table theme for the 2010 Third Annual Tea Time with Berea Health Ministry.  Our theme is a secret and I can't announce it yet.  But, I will tell you this much...we plan to use her Lenox wedding china in the photo above. 

The photos above are our decorated tables in 2008 and 2009.  Last year I decorated two tables, made 200 scones, made and served 450 cups of tea. 
This year, due to a torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder and upcoming surgery, I am forced to reduce the amount of work I can do on the tea, especially table decorating, which requires carrying all the tableware and decorations.  I am, however,  chairing the event with the help of my life-long friend, Patty.  The menu is planned, volunteers have committed to make the foods and details shaping up for the event scheduled for October 23, 2010.  The committee has assured me they will make the tea and carry-out assignments under my supervision. 
Tea Time with Berea Health Ministry is a very special event we all look forward to each October.

What fun -- your tables from years past are beautiful. Have fun supervising this year and don't overdo it and further injure that shoulder. :)

I love looking at your tea tables--so welcoming and beautifully arranged.

Just thinking about October is a wonderful thing---all that promise of the year's changing and the cooler weather and that crisp feeling of the Fall coming down.

Looking forward to your Autumn Tea, and all the lovely arrangements it brings. Wish I could be there, to sit at one of those inviting tables.

They will be just beautiful as aways.

I didn't know you were having rotator cuff surgery. My husband had that done in June and is doing very well. Good luck. Also will look forward to seeing your table.

Sure am sorry to hear you have to have surgery, Linda! But I'm glad to hear you will still be working on the ministry tea. That is always one of my favorite tea things to read about each year!
