Hellebore Tea 2013

Yesterday was the annual tea at Lake Wilderness Lodge. Our table mates gathered together twice over the past month to plan what our table theme would be and who would be providing what. Once again this year we were pleased to have the owner of Countryside Floral in Issaquah help us out with our centerpiece and he rented the table lines and chair covers for us. Jon is a very talented floral artist and did an amazing job with the massive tall centerpieces and the roses on the chair backs. We did win first place for table design. The event was judged by Marianne Binetti, horticulture expert and author of several garden books. THANK YOU JON!!

We are also blessed to have such great cooks in our group. What yummy treats we all enjoyed. We all got filled up for sure! Enjoy all the photos! Here are some shots of our table.
Sherran made the sweet tea that you see in the serving jar and it was DELICIOUS!

Those big leaves really added a touch of the outdoors!

Love, love, love how our table came together!

Swag on our chair backs.

I caught Jon with his mouth full!

We were the only table with shrimp cocktails! I made those, as well as cucumber appetizers.

Jessica, looking marvelous! We all wore colors represented by our table. I wore green, but don't have a shot of me!

We had lots of people swirling around our table taking photos

Here are some of the other tables: 

LOVE that teapot!!

Clever idea this table had. One person bought the white plates at the dollar store, placed a paper doily on top and spray painted the plates black! Great to use with a clear plate on top, but you can't eat off the painted plate!

Had to get a closeup of this ladybug cake.

This table was most creative with their moss centerpiece!

Very dramatic, but flowers!
