My First Tablescape Tuesday


I love looking through all the ideas on Tablescape Tuesday. I have finally decided to join in on the fun! Susan at Between Naps on the Front Porch hosts this event every Tuesday! Those that regularly read my blog, please excuse the repost of the Tablescape.

This is a tablescape that my friend and I did for our Women's Mad Hatter Tea Party Event in December. We used three buckets with a dowel through them for a base. Each bucket is filled with Styrofoam and topped off with paper easter grass. My friend and I made the Alice in Wonderland characters out of clay. Each bucket represents a part of the story. I use the same clear glass plates every year and paint on the underside of them to match the theme. That way I just scrap the paint of the back, wash and they are ready for the next event. I got the take home goody bags, napkins (handkerchiefs) and material for the runner from Hobby Lobby. I got the cups and saucers from a thrift store. The placemats and candles from the Dollar Tree.

I thoroughly enjoyed your whimsical and fun Tablescape! I really enjoyed the creative ideas you and your friends at church put into all the details of the event. The guests must have felt extremely special! I also enjoyed your profile and learning more about you and your priorities in life as a young mother. What a blessing you are to your family! 8=) ~CC Catherine
