Welcome to the 13th Annual Celebration of Tables in Pictures!

It could be said that the beginning of the Women's Suffrage Movement occurred when Abigail Adams told her husband, John, “Remember the Ladies” when the writing of the Declaration of Independence was taking place in 1776. Fast forward to the Twentieth Century when in 1914, The General Federat…
This table is set in the dining room of an old farmhouse which is approaching one hundred two years old and is where I grew up with a brother and two sisters. We were blessed with Dr. John H & Betty Kinser being our parents and we enjoyed many dining experiences in this room. The china i…
An Evening with Family and Friends
Dinner parties are always fun when you set a formal table and get out the “Good Stuff.” The tapestry table runner and floral arrangement set the stage for the tablescape. Gold plate chargers are the perfect backdrop for the china place setting. The silver flatware, crystal water glasses, and champagne flutes add a touch of class to the dining experience.
Something New, Something Old, Something Borrowed with a Touch of Gold
I am calling this tablescape “Something new, something old, something borrowed with a touch of gold.” We typically have family visiting for Easter, so I always try to have my table decorated a little extra-special for Spring. This design, like the title describes, is a combination of décor I had already, some that I bought, and some borrowed. The flower arrangements are fresh and artificial.
Stepping Out While Staying In
This past year has been hard on everyone. Covid has affected all of us in one way or another, from financial hardships to the loss of loved ones. For some it has been just an inconvenience but for others it has changed their livelihood.
Theatre changes lives...this has long been a motto of the Morristown Theatre Guild. These words have never been so true, as they have been for me. I've been a professional engineer for thirty years. But, in the last three and a half, with the Morristown Theatre Guild, I've been a police offi…

AND STILL, WE PERSEVERE…
Sally Allen, a member of Hamblen County Democratic Party (HCFDW), agreed to design the table that HCFDW would enter in the 2021 GFWC Celebration of Tables. But, she wondered, what should that table design be?
Let All That You Do Be Done in Love
This brunch-themed table scape alludes to the meaning of the showcased centerpiece of simple tulips. The free form arrangement took on a whole new meaning when searching for a title to describe the setting. Flowers in the Victorian days carried secret messages from presenter to recipient. The tulip was to represent new beginnings, deep love, and charity.
Our Community Impact Project for 2021 is most unique in that we're learning to think differently about fundraising.
David Burnette of David Burnette Designs and Donna Simpson have teamed up and are excited to be part of the first ever 13th annual Celebration of Tables in Pictures!
Did some Bunny say it’s Spring down at the Burlap Bumblebee? Spring is indeed in the air and our table takes us back to a “Hoppy” and even Happier time when we celebrate Easter. As we gather our families around the table, we give thanks to the re-birth of Spring and remembrance of why we cel…
The antique Duncan Phyfe table is covered with a delicate lace cloth crocheted by Mother. The Heritage Green plates trimmed in gold were our grandmother’s china dating back to the 1930’s, and were used only for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The gold flatware was bought in the 1980’s to go with the plates.
On July 11, 1920, the state of Tennessee agreed to call a special session of legislature to vote on Amendment 19 giving women the right to vote. On that day, the streets were full of people wearing either a yellow rose in favor or a red rose in opposition of the bill.
Start each day with GOD, GRACE, & GRATITUDE
A couple of years ago, I was looking for a home decor type of business to be a part of my Christmas open house that I would have each year. It was a night of shopping with different vendors and fellowshipping with other ladies. As I looked on the Internet for someone who might have this and do parties in your home, I came upon a company called Mary & Martha.
Cinderella and Her Magic Coach
In keeping with the 2021 Summer Reading Program, “Tails and Tales”, the Morristown-Hamblen Library’s Penny Cowan has designed a table for this year’s GFWC Ladies Reading Circle and Somo Sala Circle Celebration of Tables entering on Cinderella and her magic coach. (Remember the pumpkin turned into a coach, and the mice turned into horses?)
