Remember last week when I posted this picture?
This weekend, our church hosted a Ladies Tea. We hosted a table with a “Mad Hatter” theme. So, without further ado, here is our project…
It all started with a cup. This one from Dollar General was a whopping $2.00.
The matching saucers were just $1.00 each.
Then I learned that I am not a competent spray painter.
Then it was time to assemble the cups. Rick drilled holes, then doweled and screwed the cups and saucers together.
After a few trips to Michael’s, T J Maxx, and the rental place, we had a finished centerpiece.
The other side:
Our place settings were mismatched chargers and my Nanny’s china. I folded the napkins like bowties (another pinterest idea), then placed the silverware in the bowtie. The glasses were given as favors to our guests.
The completed table.
We had to make our own desserts, so we made these top hat cupcakes.
The tea was a lot of fun. Even more fun was winning the “Most Unique” table of the day! I was so honored to be able to share with the ladies there. I will write more about that tomorrow.
Until then, I think I am going to start planning SaraGrace a tea party for her birthday!
