Decorating for a Very Special Event - Part 2

As promised, my friends here is Part 2 of our special decor assignment:

The final 12 arrangements are done and ready to be transported to the event!!  My Dear Friend, Linda,  came and packed up and made at least three trips from my dining room table to the church so that they could be setting the tables  while I was here working on these  (they were there setting up the dishes, stemware  and silverware).

We figured out how to bring that water, that our Pastor wanted,  into the room..  and so it gave birth to The Feature Table!

 Sparkling Cider and Hibiscus Tea Ready for the guests. 

My Friend, Carol Ann,  created this Beautiful Dove Tree with some Bling...LOVE it!!

Floating Camellias ( from my Garden!!)  and Candles!  So Simple, but what a Beautiful Presentation!

Doesn't it look Beautiful?!  We added
 a simple 1-1/2 Spring Green Satin Border to the inside of the table arrangement just to give it that little extra something!

and here is The Final Result!!

We finished setting everything up, while the volunteer cooks were hard at work in the kitchen and left 15 minutes before the guests of the evenings celebration arrived. 

 I was told that everyone enjoyed the event! 

Thanks so much to my dear friend, and co-decor team member, Carol Ann, who stayed a couple minutes after me and lit the floating candles so we could have this one last wonderful image of our hard work!!

And to Linda, as well,  who made many trips back and forth to my house and then stayed for the evening to serve the food (and send me pictures via text on her phone!)  I am Blessed with good friends and a wonderful church!

I hope you've enjoyed it! It was alot of work and alot of fun!! But, after all is said and done, we got to welcome new Christians to our church, in, what we hope they thought was a nice style!!
Blessings Always~
