Women's Christmas Dessert

This past Tuesday was the night my friend Debbie and I decorated a table for the annual Women's Christmas Dessert. (This event takes place on two evenings and one afternoon with many different decorators partcipating each time.) This was our table, number 25, so you know there was lots of looking to do!


I loved the simplicity of this centerpiece.

The pale green lace overlay on this table was stunning!

Who'd have thought of chosing a black tablecloth?

Doesn't this table look wintery?

For some reason the red and white striped placemats don't show up well on my photo but what a fun use of candy canes!

Here's one with a beautiful poinsettia as the focal point.

What a fun way to cover those wooden letters!

It's always fun at this event to see the creativity that surrounds the season, but we also enjoyed a special presentation of Christmas carols by Ross Hauck and Alicia Lewis as well as "The Birth" as presented by Tap Root Theater. Mostly, though , it was just a gathering of women, celebrating the beginning of the Christmas season together early in December in preparation for the Nativity.

If you care to tune in on Sunday at either 9 or 11 in the morning (PST) you can join our choir as we worship through music. Till then may you be enveloped in the love and anticipation that surround these days of December.

What beautiful tables! I went to a Christmas Tea on Saturday, but all the tables were decorated the same. As beautiful as they were, I prefer the variety. It's so interesting to see how people get creative. I went to a charity dinner once where each hostess decorated her table with her finest china and linens. But the hit of the event was a young woman who decorated hers as a picnic, complete with paper plates, red checked tablecloth and plastic ants!

Last night we were listening to choral music while decorating our tree. I was thinking of you and wanted to ask about your Christmas concert. I'll make a note and try to tune in. I have YET to catch one live. I wish they would put them on You Tube...

As for the tables, I LOVE this idea!!!! I have to think of ways to use it in my life...

Happy singing and knitting and general merry making...xoxo Susan
