Beautiful Tables

Our church women sponsored a brunch with "table viewings" to benefit missions. We had 22 tables decorated with a lot of different themes. There were so many beautiful tables. My pictures don't do them the justice they deserve.

How about a Coca-Cola theme?

I loved these dishes -brown transferware with the turkeys in flight.

My friend Sharron did the table above. Her tablecloth was made of burlap with a dark brown velvet trim. Sharron always goes "over the top". Look how she decorated the folding chairs around her table.

Lots of Fall themes. Look at those little pumpkin placecard holders.

There were several Christmas and winter tables too. I liked the red and blue together.

I loved these dishes with the birds on them. These were made by Lenox.

I loved the sunflowers with the black and white. It was a gorgeous table.

I loved this apple themed table too. It really picked up the red in the dishes.

Join others and their "tablescapes" at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. You'll see some more beautiful table settings!

Beautiful tables. I'd love to know what pattern the pheasant dishes are. Visit my post today and you'll see why.

Thanks for all these lovely tables.

Peaking in at your TS post today. I have always wanted to go to a function that had different TS. I bet it was so much fun walking around to see all the different tables. I think the apple plates are the cutest. What great plates to have for Autumn season. Thanks for sharing.

I clicked on each photo to enlarge it & things just got better & better!!!

I love the second one with the pilgrim woman. Do you know what she used around the big candle in the center? It looks like coco puff cereal!!! (Which would be a great idea, BTW)

The Christmas tables are TDF....I can't wait for that season to start up. Woo-Hoo!!!!!

Thanks for sharing all these wonderful TT's.

Finding you was more than I bargained for! What great tables. I am smitten by brown transferware. I also love the black, white and yellow table. I am visiting a little longer than I usually do. There is so many lovely things to see!
Thanks, you were very generous!

These are so pretty -- I'm always amazed at some of these tables some of the churches and women's groups do -- just lovely all.
