"Joy to the World" ladies Event

One of the very special events which our church holds is the ladies Christmas tea. There is accommodation for 350 ladies over 2 evenings and tickets are always sold out almost immediately.
I was privileged to help with the decorating this year. Here are a few photos of the tables and d├ęcor.

These are the table centers:
 With the help of my husband, I assembled 184 of these little favours:

I hope to show you more photos, especially of the tortes which will be served.
Meanwhile I am joining Sandi's Tea Time Tuesday.

What a lovely event. All the decorations were beautiful. I especially liked the candle sitting on the slice of wood. I admit I may "steal" the idea.
