Ladies Tea

Every year our church hosts a ladies tea. I have done a preschool table and a fireman table. Some time ago I had the idea to have my Mom come to visit and do a "tribute" to her (and my history) by doing a Kentucky table. I decided to also have Jenna's birthday party the same week so Mom could come and then, of course, celebrate Mother's Day with my Mom.

We had such a good time at the tea. There were a lot of tables all decorated in many different ways and represented each ladies personality.

I called my table "My Ole' Kentucky Home". Mom found plates with horses on them, my centerpiece was roses (derby is called the "Run For the Roses"), and I put pictures all around of me growing up. My mother-in-law, sister-in-law, my friend Cheryl and Melody, one of my Sunday School teachers (Brenda), and Ms. Marie (she cleans our preschool and worship center building and is the hardest worker I have ever seen!) sat at my table. I had derby hats for everyone to wear. Their gift was the Kentucky Derby glass for this year. Our speaker was wonderful. Kathy spoke on leaving the exchanged life for Christ. It's very hard to explain what she teaches but the gospel was presented in a very unusual way. It's based on the teaching of Bertha Smith . She was a missionary to China.

A good time was had by all. Now, on to getting ready for Jenna's party.....all I want for Mother's Day is a nap!!!

I'm glad you got a pic of the table since I didn't get to see the finished product. Very cute! Love the plaid table cloth you used. :)
