Day of Caring - Part 2


Thank you Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursday. To see other tablescapes, go to her blog at Between Naps on the Porch.

I posted about our church's Day of Caring earlier this week. We had a lunch for ladies who were care givers to their disabled family members. I was a table host. This is my table, along with other tables set for the event.
The church supplied the tablecloth. I took my Franciscan desert rose china, grandmas flatware and my silver piecies.

I put iced tea spoons in my Princess House glass holder.
Fresh flowers surround a pillar candle, as well as the tapers and tiny votives.




I you are interested in holding a day of caring, email me and I'll send you the planning notes.

Karen -- yes I would be interested in the planning for this event -- I mentioned it to my pastor I just happened to run into yesterday while waiting for my dad's latest prescription - I think this is a wonderful idea.

That is a beautiful table. I have some of that same china that I will do one day. What a great idea your church had to do that. And the ladies that sat at your table were very lucky!

Stunning table, Karen. I love the little hints of pink in your accessories.

What a nice gesture for those who have to look after someone else all the time! Your table must have made them feel so special and appreciated. Love your china and the centerpiece with the fresh carnations around the pillar candle is beautiful!

Love your table, Karen! It's perfect, and the mother of a close high school friend had that same pattern. I can remember setting the dinner table at their house with those dishes. Made me smile!
