Dine By Design

Every spring our church has a women's dinner called Dine By Design. You can choose to be a table hostess and decorate your table in any theme you want.


This year mine was called, "Feed On The Word". Mainly because I borrowed my sister in laws scripture dishes and that's what they're called. I hung silverware and votives from my "tree".


The table hostesses are also supposed to have a little gift for each person sitting at their table. I always give my guests a GIANT chocolate bar, because nothing says love like a giant hunk of chocolate. They also got koozies this year.



I need someone to implant a memory card in my brain, because I remembered my camera, but forgot my memory card. Thankfully I had one in my camera case, but it only holds a few pictures.


This table was called, "Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails"


Did you notice the whoopie cushion on all the chairs? So cute!



Here are a couple of others:


There was every theme from Christmas, Harley Davidson, Birthday party, and Luau.

Don't you wish somebody would have taken some pictures?
Maybe next year.



I put my tree in my entry way. I took the silverware off and just left the beaded votive holders and crystals. It looks pretty when it's all lit up.



It kind of looks like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree in pictures, but not in real life.

our church does this at Christmas for a ladies brunch and everyone gets out their Christmas china and has a theme. I would SO sit at your table! Giant chocolate bars are a girl's best friend! :)
Ps. Where did your sister get the scripture china? I LOVE it!
