As I mentioned in an earlier post, several weeks ago our school district
held a Senior Citizen Tea. This week I’m sharing the Lemon Table.
The tea is an attempt to allow the senior citizens of our community to
get to know the school aged children of the community better.
I was asked if I would provide the centerpieces for
the tables, each to have a tea theme.

We had approximately one hour in which to transform a high school
cafeteria into a room suitable for tea for 100.
In order to be as organized as possible, I designed each table at my
home, photographed it, and then packed the items for each table in
it’s own labeled box.
The photo above is of the Lemon table as designed in my home.
I inserted the photographs of the table, along with written directions,
in each box so that all of my helpers could arrange each table

As many of you know, each Sunday I host a weekly meme or party
called Seasonal Sundays. Last year on my first blog- aversary, I hosted
a party called “Where do you keep it all?”. As this week marks my
second blog-aversary, this Sunday I’m again focusing on the question,
I’m asked the most. “Where do you keep it all? – Part 2”
If you’re a collector, whether it be tea cups or plates or whatever,
storage is always an issue. I hope you’ll join me in sharing where you
keep it all. It may be a pretty little hutch or a not so pretty but
serviceable shelf. Whichever, I hope you’ll share!
