Fantastic PW Table Scapes

This morning I attended the General Meeting of the Presbyterian Women's organization at Grace Presbyterian Church, Houston, along with a few friends from MDPC. I felt as though I had been transported back in time to the sixties and the PW luncheons at the church where I grew up.

I've never been active in PW. In fact, in the church we used to attend, PW was dissolved for lack of interest. Many churches find that the traditional format of this group just doesn't appeal to most younger women and doesn't suit their schedules.

But PW is clearly alive and well at Grace! More than 200 women were there, enjoying the singing of the Harbor Light Choir from the Salvation Army and an inspiring address from my good friend Mary Marcotte, associate general presbyter of our presbytery with a very long title that I won't try to repeat here.

But the point of this post is to share the amazing table decorations, or "Table Scapes" as the lifestyle mavens now term them. Each table was decorated--lavishly--with the theme of the hostess' choice. And there were 31 tables!

In case you need inspiration for your own Table Scapes, here are some examples: Planning a Safari Party?

Never too early to plan for New Year's...

Here's a Fourth of July Table Scape complete with placemats!

Don't you love the theme on this one: A Prissy Luncheon?

This one is for the fans of the local NBA team, the Rockets.

There's clearly lots of artistic talent and imagination in this group at Grace. The group also made a generous donation to the presbytery's Hurricane Ike Recovery Fund. Thanks, ladies!
