WEDDING CHAPEL TABLES

I am joining Marty for Tabletop Tuesday at http://www.astrollthrulife.blogspot.com . I will admit I have been on the road so much lately I haven't done any tabletops of my own. However a friend of mine recently bought a church-yes you read this right-a church. This is an historic old church out in a little town and she has turned it into a wedding chapel or a place for parties and meetings. I thought I would share a lovely floral arrangement or two that she did for tables.Isn't this arrangement lovely, she had it out at her open house.
I love the detail on this antigue tablecloth.

Another beautiful tabletop-beautiful white lillies in this one.This is the church, it is huge and very pretty. I think it is over 100 years old.
The above photo and this room are in the Bride's dressing room. I love the old fashioned look. I hope you enjoyed these tabletops and maybe I will stay at home enough to do my own by next week!

That is a fantastic idea buying that church for social events. They preserved an historic building and that is great too. Lovely flowers, I miss floral design.

Wow, she bought a Church? The flowers are beautiful, but buying a Church is awesome! Love the large stained glass window. I saw on HGTV once where an indivudual bought one and renovated it to live in. Have a great week!

Ok..now I don't feel so crazy..I begged my hubby to buy me a little church by our camp in Gloster, Miss.
But there just was not enough people in the area to support it. I really wanted to make it a B&B.

Well, what a great idea. I have seen several old churches turned into home, but I think this is perfect as a wedding chapel. Seems like the natural thing. Her floral arrangements are all beautiful and I love the antique linens So pretty. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

How exciting for your friend. The church is beautiful. I love that she is preserving a bit of history. The tablecloth is so lovely, as are her arrangements.

That is a good idea for her. I know many people want special places for their weddings.

Luv the arrangements.

That is so beautiful. Love the stained glass window. I am so glad your friend rescued the building and it is being used for happy events.
Thanks for visiting Marian's garden. She really has a green thumb. Ginger
