Before I reveal the Tablescape ideas let me discript my last week.On Friday night the museum where I work held there annual auction. We have been working on this for several months. Our theme this year was Camp Howze which was a miltary camp that was in our county during World War II. We had around 300 in attendance and over 275 items to auction off. We had a great turn out and with the help of numerous volunteers it was a great success. I am including a few photos of the Auction. This was tablescaping in a big way!!!!!
Our Theme was the USO/stage full of live auction items
Oh what a great Mother's day, family and no cooking. I did not cook as the family ordered food from a local tea room. We just warmed and enjoyed. Love those kind of meals. Gifts were great new dinning chairs from Big Jim, glass candlesticks from the daughter with a hamdcafted card and an hour massage from the son, I hit the jackpot. My mom even brought me a pink glass candle holder.(the start of new collection)
Sorry just had to share Mother's Day. Now on to tablescaping ideas............................................While trying to come up with a unique theme for a table scape I decided I would check holidays in May. I goggled holidays and to my surprise Bizarre and Unique Holidays came up. Isn't it great what you can find by goggling. These are not your tradintional holdays, so I thought I would share my find. Below is a list of the May holidays, hope this will help those like me that sometime need a theme for a table scape. I think I will check this out monthly and plan my tablescapes.
