Incredible Tablescapes

Welcome all my blogger friends.  I have missed you so.  Thank you for all your support through my difficult time.  I want to share some tablescapes with you.  My sister is a very lucky woman.  She has 40 hours in each day.  I figured that out several years ago.  It is the only way she can do all she does!  It is the only explanation.  She runs 2 successful businesses, is very active in her church, a wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt and friend to so many.  One of her many causes is the American Cancer Society.  She hosted a brunch fundraiser for the Cancer Society on Saturday at her church.  The theme was a a cruiseship.  She did two tables, this one is the captains table.
Notice the dolphin ice sculpture!  I thought it was a brillant idea. The red cape code Avon pieces are from our mom's collection   i
These are lovely as well but I don't know who to give credit to.
I don't know who did this table but I thought it was lovely.
Maybe not a table scape but a cutie pie!
Another lovely table but I don't know who to give credit to.My sister did this table also and I just love it.  She borrowed some things from me. 
The dishes are another find from CEBO's booth at the antique mall.  If my husband is reading this I have had them forever.  If he is not reading this I got them for a song a couple of weeks ago.  She has such cool things in her booth.  You will be seeing these dishes again.  The bunny chair covers I bought at Lillian Vernon many years ago.  I bought the gazebos at QVC on clearanceEverything is so precious.  The silent auction was a great sucess!
Now what would a cruise themed brunch be without entertainment.....Elvis of course!
My beatiul sister and one of her precious friends.  I love you sista!

Well what do you think my blogger friends, pretty cool huh?


  1. Beautiful tablescapes. And cute kids. I got a good laugh out of "if hubby reads this....". Have a great rest of the weekend.

  2. Wonderful tablescapes and I'm so glad you are feeling better. You have had a rough time I know!!!!

  3. what great tablescapes and how wonderful to get pictures of all the pretty tables, loved seeing all the hard work...Phyllis

  4. I'm glad you are feeling better, Jeanette. I've been MIA, but I just read the post below and left a comment there. Thinking of you.

    Loved seeing the tables. Your sister's table and your things is SO cute. Great job.



  5. It's always fun to see the tables put together for these events. Such talent! Love the fun Easter one with your new "very old" things!

  6. I am laughing so hard at "If my husband is reading this I have had them forever. If he is not reading this I got them for a song a couple of weeks ago." I bet all of us have said that a time or two...I know I have. Funny thing is, he is never fooled, plus he knows there is no way I would get anything for a song, as I couldn't carry a tune if it were in a bucket!
    Beautiful tables...the bunny chair covers are adorable.
    Hope you have a much better upcoming week.

  7. Yay - you're back !!!!
    Love the tablescape and your new/old dishes. That Easter table is toooo cute.
    Your sister is beautiful both inside and out to do so much for a charity.
    Hope this week is joyous for you.
