Nativity Tablescape & FREE Printable {Christmas Tea Part 2}

As a mentioned in a previous post, I decorated three tables for our church's Women's Christmas Tea. For one of the tables, I chose a gold and silver color scheme and used my nativity figurines.

My husband folded these napkins for me which held the silverware

I wanted to incorporate some sort of saying or theme so I designed some Joy to the World tags which I used to dress up some plain favor boxes.

As my Christmas gift to all of you, I am sharing these tags with you.

They would be great as cupcake toppers, gift tags, etc. There are three tags, each with a line from the song, "Joy to the World," "The Lord has come," and "Let Earth receive her king." You can use either a 2 inch square or 2 inch circle punch for these. You can download theme here.
As always, please do not resell these and credit to Lollipops & Paper is much appreciated.

Enjoy & Merry Christmas!

Christmas Tea 2011 ( Part 1)

One of my favorite church events, our annual Women's Christmas Tea was simply amazing and the tablescapes this year were beautiful as I expected. So many people put in so much work to make this event come to life. I feel so blessed to be part of this event again.
About a thousand women attend this event each year and the male members of the church sign up to be our butlers.
I decorated 3 tables, two for my personal guests and one for the church's guests. I'll go into detail for each of my tables in another post but here's an overview of my three tables as well as photos of other tables hosted by some talented women of the church

This is the Rustic Glam table I set for my guests, with gold pine cones and paper mache reindeer.

I have a set of Paris plates I've been meaning to use so I set a Joyeux Noel tablescape

I also set a table for the church's guests where I used my beloved gold dessert stand and nativity scene

The following are a few tablescapes by some talented women!

More photos of some gorgeous tables are on the facebook page
