Hello friends! I wanted to share with you some fantastic tablescape ideas from our church’s most recent fundraiser event.
It’s been a month since the event, and I’m just now getting around to posting about it. Funny how a thing like a hurricane can disrupt your life so much. The wind must have blown in a mighty fungus because I’ve had a monster of double ear infection that has lasted almost 2 weeks. Fortunately, we had absolutely beautiful weather for the luncheon which was held at Lamar United Methodist Church on October 1. The main attraction was all the tables decorated with various themes and/or seasons, and I knew you’d like to see all the tablescape ideas as well.
The theme of our luncheon was “Angels Among Us” and our guest speaker even dressed like an angel while delivering her amusing and inspirational speech. A local harpist provided beautiful background music and a soloist sang the most moving rendition of an acapella version of “The Lord’s Prayer” that I’ve ever heard. I would say that if any of you are in charge of fundraisers of a church or group to consider a tablescape luncheon because it was so successful!
Now, let’s take a look at some of those tablescapes!
There were a total of 16 tables and 2 guest tables so I’m starting with Table #1. It just so happens that this is the table that my two sister-in-laws and myself decorated. We started planning our table during the summer and decided to go with an autumn theme. One of my SIL’s spied this beautiful plum fabric in JoAnn’s which we decided to use as a table runner.
Since I have access to a sewing machine, I made the runner, the napkins, and the chair back covers. If you’re interested in how to make those chair back covers, just let me know and I can do quick tutorial for ya! In each plate we had old-fashioned tussie mussies that served as place cards.
We had many people ask us if the hydrangea blossoms were real but nope, they came from Hobby Lobby!
We ordered those beautiful orange roses from our new florist in town, Paula Johnson, but my 2 SILs created the arrangements in those tussie mussies using a combo of nandina leaves, faux berries, etc. We had such a fun time planning, shopping, and executing our autumn themed table!
Up next is elegant autumn Table #5 done in beautiful neutral shades.
There was a beautiful ornate frame at each place setting noting the “Treasures” theme of the table.
I have a lot more tables to show you but this post is getting quite lengthy. Since it’s that time of year that we’re all looking for tablescape ideas for the upcoming holidays, I’ll be back tomorrow with more beautifully decorated tables!
