Theta Flaming Festival, 2014, Part II

"First things first...We are truly blessed to have the means to set a pretty table and invite our friends to join us for good food and fellowship. I am mindful that many are not so fortunate. My daughter has a passion for the work of the Food Bank. As a singer-songwriter, she has written and recorded a song that is the anthem for the world wide Crop Hunger Walk project. Her song, "Raise Your Voice" is featured in their video. I've included a link in the side margin of my blog.  I hope that it will encourage you to support projects in your community that contribute to the effort to overcome hunger.

Haven't entertained this week, so I'm sharing  some more of the loveliness that was the Theta Flaming Festival, 2014.  Enjoy!

 Welcome to the Flaming Festival!  Come on in...

 I thought that this was a really clever idea, using a cluster of tall pub tables.

 A quartet of tablescapes presented by my favorite local jewelry/gift store.

 Each and everyone a luscious setting.

 Did  you notice the beautiful napkins?

 An easy, yet impressive centerpiece.

Perfect for Christmas or any winter day.

 This pair of dolls was magnificent.  Stunning!

 Love the tablecloth.

 The Simpich Carolers made a charming centerpiece.  I didn't quite get the use of the Hostess Snowballs on the crystal compote.

 I loved this centerpiece, but my photos didn't portray it adequately.

 It's made out of antlers!  Can you see them peeking out from the ornaments?

 The tree was used for years at the owner's vacation home on a ski mountain.  Be sure to notice the beautiful tablecloth.

 An assortment of individual soup tureens held floral arrangements at each place setting.

 A lobster boil...I've never been to a lobster boil.  Do you all really use newspapers on the table?

 A precious birthday party tablescape...

 Love the teacup stacks...

 ...for an Alice Through the Looking Glass tablescape.

 The tablecloth treatment was outstanding....and the dolls were beautiful.

 The Govenor's table...she's a Theta, too.

 I liked the runner on the round table.

So much inspiration...I always come away with ideas to save for another day.  Next week I'll share the second table that I set for the Flaming Festival.  Have a great week!

This week I'm joining:
