For the past month my kitchen table has been covered in scraps of fabric, thread, tissue paper, glitter, and handmade paper.
I have been busy sewing, gluing, spraying and creating decorations for the Christmas party at my church.
The event happened this past Saturday...decorating began Friday afternoon and continued throughout Saturday. We transformed the church into a "Winter Wonderland"...
We hung glittery and sparkling snowflakes in front of the stage curtain...
They really glistened in the lights.
Check out the entryway..
I made twenty white felt trees, 15 aqua blue trees, and glittered hundreds of snowflakes to decorate the tables. (there are glass bottles hiding under the trees for support).
We even decorated the top of the piano with a garland made from coffee filters, tissue and handmade papers.
Lots of tables and chairs.. (seated almost 190)
Here is the serving table/room..my sister brought the manzanita branches down from her property in the Sierras...and then I sprayed them with white paint.
We had a live nativity...with rabbits, goats, chickens, a donkey ,and guinea pigs ...
Check out the stable and manger..kids could dress up as sheperds, wise men, sheep, Mary, or Joseph and we had a photographer take their picture
At the end, a youth choir provided us with beautiful melodic music...
Oh such a lovely evening indeed....I can now start decorating my own home.
