Carrianne decorated a few votive candles and empty jars for our table as well. She taped the burlap pieces onto a piece of paper and ran them through her printer to print the words on them. If you are using actual candles that you plan on lighting definitely double up the burlap underneath the printed words as once the candle is lit you will have a harder time seeing the words!
Our church gave each lady who came to the tea one of these beautiful angel ornaments to hang on our Christmas trees. Aren’t they so pretty?
We placed a smaller glass plate that would be used for the desserts and sandwiches on top of the green doily along with a white cloth napkin. I made kraft paper envelopes similar to the one I showed you here and I added a bit of vintage lace from my stash at the opening. Inside each envelope we gave everyone at our table a subway art magnet with a seasonal message as well as a recipe card for the cupcake we gave as a take home gift. I’ll share more about those in another post, promise!
I made little burlap pouches for our silverware which we tied with organza ribbon. I also made burlap placemats with lace trim. I will share the tutorials for those later this week too!
The tea was such a fun evening not only because we heard a great message but also because we were able to have our table filled with some wonderful friends from another women’s group we are in together.
