~pArTy DeCoR~

Wow wee!!! 
I've been busy this week,
I have slowed down some,
but just thought
I would share
what the girl
has been
up to.

We hosted a World Crafts Party at our church Monday Night,
if you are not familiar with World Crafts, I've created
a link so you can see what it is all about.

I thought I would share the fall centerpiece
that I made for the event.

(These pheasants are from my guest bedroom - I shared on an earlier post)

 (he's munching on an acorn)

We served food at the party (of course)
the food tables were placed in a L shape
and this centerpiece was placed in the
corner of the L.



The blogging girls best friend.  ;<)

Square burlap toppers were placed over the top of
 white tablecloths on the food tables and the tables
 where the ladies sat to eat.


The round tables where the ladies sat had mums
 (based covered in dark brown burlap-tied up with a plaid bow)
 in the center of the round table atop the tan square topper.


I'm joining the others over at Vanessa's for

Hi Karen,
Your floral arrangement & surrounding display should be on a magazine cover! (or maybe it has). I live in California, so I won't be able to attend craft parties, but I will enjoy looking at your pictures . I'm thankful that your sharing your creativity that our Creator has given you. I'm a new blogger since this October, and I hope to have you as a friend on my site. I will look forward to revisiting your blog. May the Lord bless your day,
Michele Katherine

Beautiful arrangement. Isn't it funny that something so basic as burlap can be so beautiful combined with beautiful flowers.

The centerpiece you made? You MADE? WOW! If we lived closer, I'd be knocking on your door to help me with a wreath to decorate my front door! :-) Just beautiful!

Your centerpiece is so wonderfully seasonal. I love the pheasants and the squirrel. Perfect touches. And the urn filled with the different textures is gorgeous. Gives me great ideas!

Rachel said...

Simply gorgeous! The phesants are the perfect foul for the arrangement :)

Sarah said...

Your centerpiece is fabulous. The natural elements really shine this time of year. The party sounds like it was lovely. Burlap on the tables would be a perfect touch.

Style Sisters said...

Love it all! As you know I love natural elements in the centerpiece! Great ideas. Thanks for linking up.

Karen, I came over from a link on the centerpiece blog, and these are just marvelous! You are so talented, and I love how you used the burlap as a tabletopper. It really looks so fallish, but your arrangements... you could do this professionally. Love the birds and the squirrels and the nuts and things you added at the bases, too.
