My big project

Get It Down; 31 for 21

Now that it is done it doesn't look so big! In honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month I decorated a table for my church's Fall friendship dinner! This is probably the most fun ladies event at my church. 

The theme of my table was celebrating and protecting children with Down Syndrome all around the world. My my colors were blue and yellow with a globe for a centerpiece.

I tied blue and yellow bows on each goblet. I had a slide show of Reece's Rainbow children playing in my digital picture frame. The Gifts book was available for my guests to browse through.

Here is a wide shot of the room. There were so many beautiful tables.

I was very nervous, because I've never done this before. I don't have a lot of beautiful dishes and table accessories. I borrowed the tablecloth and coffee cups from the church kitchen.

I made little table tents with RR children from different countries. The tent held a mini flag of that country. On the back of the tent I listed the adoption program requirements for each of the eight countries that I chose.

Before the dinner started, the guests toured the room to view all the tables. I was able to visit with them about Down Syndrome awareness month and Reece's Rainbow. The speaker/singer really spoke to my heart. I have much to treasure from today. What a fun evening!

Funny, it took me several days to put this all together and about 15 minutes to break it down! haha

Looks great! And looks like a fun event!

Isn't that always the way? Much less effort to tear down than to build up.

Very beautiful and I am happy to read you had a good time.

This is Joyce. What a wonderful and creative idea. I have attended those type events in the past and have never seen a table done with such inspiration for Ds. I love the globe in the center and the pictures, just beautiful.

Thanks for taking the time to set this table. It looked great! I too was blessed by the speaker's presentation that night, especially her story of adoption. May God bless you for lifting up this ministry of helping these precious children!
