Little tree, Suzette, my sister, made all the ornaments, spelling out the each school's name and the "Fruits of the Spirit." It was darling.
The letter beads were purchased at a "just a dollar" type store, that has good craft items. This was all part of the school reception held for the whole district. Suzette has been in charge of the decorations for awhile now, and I help her.
This little "cloche"is an upturned votive holder placed on a candle holder with a nest and card ornament inside. The word believe was part of a set of magnetic words picked up at, you guessed it, Goodwill. Cloches were used throughout, for many guests, it was their first introduction to the wonderful world of cloches! tee hee
This was the sign in table and where the door prize bowl was kept... I came up with this theme, because we are one of the very few exemplary school districts, which is the highest RANK you can have in Texas and we also decorated with village replicas of our home town. I'll post about them another day. I was proud when this scene, with a few staging changes, was picked for the district wide Christmas card!
The snowflakes are cut with our die cut machine from old dictionary sheets. Song sheets would be be great, too... added Panther paws and a little glitter, of course!
There is sooo much decorations from this one event; I am just sharing one table today, with Jill at her "Junk"le Bells Party , go check it out and join in, Too!
Next year the room we decorate will be part of our town's Christmas Home Tour!!!
We have always done the more traditional colors, with some twists, but this year we are going for the more neutral, snowy, mercury glass, tattered look! Hope we can pull it off.
It is fun seeing people's reaction to new ideas!
