Parade of Homes: The Sign In Table, Food Table, and Beyond...

Ok,  the Tea was today...around 400 people came trough, a record number, but as many of you know, having set up for events...picture taking sometimes doesn't happen...So, the pics I am posting, thanks to our friend, Sandra, are really before the final touches . Please, if you will, sprinkle some glitter, light the candles, turn on a little more twinkle lights, and clean up a few spots, as  you stroll around.  I will walk you trough the room bit by bit, in the order of how it is arranged.

While Suzette usually does a traditional color theme, which we love, this year she chose shades of stark or creamy whites to light tea stained browns, with a touch of  black...our theme  ...

~An Exemplary Stroll 
Through A Winter Wonderland~
~The Sign In Table~

The cloche on a silver footed tray
filled with dried Hydrangeas, song sheet chains, a sweet plate, and wonderful snow.

The ornament in the middle of the wreath is of the original old school, across the street. 
We cleaned up the mess in back and added some bling around the ornament...

Take note of a camel tail in the background...more to come!

I just Loved these fuzzy little bears. Polar Bears and song sheets unified the room.

 This panther used to be a leopard...
but Josh took care of it and Suzette decoupage an old candle holder for him to crouch on. 
More cloches filled with snow, hydrangeas from Sherrie's yard 
and pine cones a co-worker and her daugther gathered.

This tiny music stand filled with Christmas song sheets is sooo adorable. 

~The Food Table~

The centerpiece needed to be small, since refreshments use up most of the room. 

~ Jingle Bells~

 ~ Beyond the Food Table~

A Nativity in perfect silhouette.  
Thanks to Sandra and her scissor carrying Elves!

Even the Penguins are discussing
 all the goings on in the board room...

Saturday, December 4th, 11:00 to 4:00

Floor to Ceiling was my goal ~ glitter done!

Oh Lezlee how FABULOUS....The place looked MAGICAL & I'm so glad you were able to take a FEW pics to share with us....hahahahaha....Isn't it ALWAYS the way....I told Mr SVJ the other day I was SURE I'd be a BETTER blogger if I had a WIZZ BANG camera instead of my point & shoot 'cause I'd be more inclined to be walkin' around with it rather than have it stashed in my purse....I thought I put my case across really well but he didn't buy it....** sigh ** ....Gotta give me points for tryin' though....!

THANK YOU for stopping by to help us celebrate our 100th posts & for being a Friend....All we need to do now is get TOGETHER the next time I'm in Texas....!!!!!

Cheers for now Lovey & enjoy the rest of the week,
Tamarah :o)

Jill said...

It's all beautiful Lezlee. Isn't it amazing how a simple silhouette is sooooo beautiful and says so much? There was some serious time spent cutting those out!

I absolutely ADORE the nativity silhouette. That's by FAR the best Christmas decoration that I've EVER seen. I love it. {LOVE IT}.

Thank you so much for such fantastic inspiration. I'm your new follower!!

I like the color scheme too, I'd watch out for that panther though, I think the Polar bears are lunch!
