Holiday for Her 2011

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Every year my church, LCC, does a holiday event for women called Holiday for Her. It is one of our largest events of the year involving amazing inspirational speakers, catered dinners and beautiful decor! Every table is individually hosted and decorated by the women of our church so no two tables are alike. Each one is different and unique. I have been attending this event for 10 years but this was the first year I hosted and decorated my own table. I've been wanting to do one for years but it takes planning and I never got everything together until now. If you decorate a table you are responsible for supplying everything needed...from linens to dishes, silverware to centerpieces and everything in between. You may decorate your table in any theme of your choosing. Most choose a holiday...Christmas, Thanksgiving , Easter etc...some choose a decor theme. The only requirement is that you have a bible verse to go along with your theme. I wanted to do something involving birds, nests, moss etc. Not sure what I would call it...something between enchanted woodland & feather your nest. I filled different size apothecary jars with moss, lights, eggs, nests, feathers and birds and set them up on stacks of vintage books and then surrounded everything with lots of candles, tall and small. It was beautiful all lit up! The verse that went along with my table comes from Psalms 84:1-4. It reads:

How lovely is your dwelling place, LORD Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young— a place near your altar, LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.

It was a fabulous night and I cannot wait to do a table again next year!
