The Pleasure of Your Company

Saturday was our annual Ladies Spring Luncheon and Tea. 
And I have to say it was hands down our best yet! 
Each and every table is unique and as personal as its hostess.

44 tables and not one single more! The Fire Marshall side "That's IT!"
 Over 440 women! Isn't that amazing? Many of whom had never been to a church event for women.

 Here is a snap of the team. 
I am so blessed, honored and proud to be a part of such an amazing group of ladies. 
They each and everyone have their own gifts that they bring to the ministry.  
Front: Pam Lamb, Vicki Voyce (she is the boss! nothing happens without her) Debi Rigg, Michelle Lawson, Susan Loller, Pat Cannon, Nancy Hunt, Elizabeth Nevell, Jeanne Houser, Me, Jan Payne, Susan Leabonner.  Not pictured: Jo Hale and Sandy Pennington

There is so much work to a big event like this. 
And they do it all as a ministry of love.

These are a few pictures of the table that I hosted.

I used my Father-In-Law's old Royal Typewriter. Talk about using what you have!

  Our theme was " The Pleasure of Your Company". 
I tried to carry that through the whole decor.

Including the favors. This is just a Dollar Tree compact mirror that I dolled up a little.

 I love my new old Homer Laughlin tea cups! They were the color inspiration.

 The ladies at my table were from all different areas of my life.

Here's one that you might recognize.... 
Sorry for the "soft focus". 
We neither one took this picture, 
but it is still cute.

Laura from Decor to Adore! How fun is that!?

I'm joining:
Marty for Inspire Me Tuesday
