This is what I spent my Saturday doing.... Having tea with the ladies.... over 420 ladies that is...
The Spring Tea and Luncheon at North Phoenix Baptist Church has become such a huge event that even with over 420 ladies attending... We still had ladies on wait list. It is so much fun to be a host at this event.
As a Host you are responsible for decorating your table, and bringing whatever accessories you need. The church supplies the buffet (we have a full kitchen staff with chef) and the basics like lemon, sugar, salt and pepper, flatware, hot water, ice water, ice tea, and even cups and saucers if you need them. I know in blog land we can't imagine that, but not everyone has 10 cups and saucers, and the event is for everyone!
Friday night is set-up and then Saturday is Tea Time! There is usually an inspirational speaker. This year it was Pam Kanaly. She was awesome. She spoke about being a woman of influence and what your legacy will be. Your influence is your legacy and it is the only thing that we leave behind when we are gone. What is your influence?
Just look at all these tables. These ladies go all out. Every guest at this table got to take home a single tulip!
Don't you love these retro cups and saucers?
This gal drew inspiration from her Mother. Using pictures to tell how she had influenced her growing up.
Just had to have a close up of those roses!
This sweet lady made 5 of these gorgeous rose topiary trees.
Look closely at this table.... Yup! That's a fish tank with lilly pads all the way around it. But here's the kicker... the lilly pads were candles that the table guests got to take home!
How sweet is this precious tea set?
That isn't even half of the tables. I have saved several (including mine) to share with you on Tea Time Tuesdays. This is a new party that Barb at Grits and Glamour is starting on May 12th.
