Christmas Banquet Tables- Two

It was so nice to meet the women that sat at our table. Beautiful ladies that I look forward to getting to know better in the future. We sang Christmas songs, had a speaker, and then a couple of Down Syndrome young adults did two theatrical pieces. They were amazing. The girl was holding a baby and the boy did lip sync and theatrical sign language to Mary Did You Know. He was AMAZING. He lept all over the stage and was so full of passion and was just right on in time with the words of the song. Then, I found out that he is so uncoordinated that he can barely walk across the floor. God has blessed him with a special gift on stage that totally points to Him and shows His power in broken vessels.
This is our centerpiece lit up and the rest of the tables that I did not photograph this afternoon.

I love your post! From the very touching story, showing God's love and mercy and work for us to each and every tablescape. There are so many wonderful ideas, especially in the centerpieces. Isn't it wonderful to see how creative people can me? I love using the little stockings to hold the flatware!So fun! This post gives me so many great ideas. I will tag it so I can really study all these fun and lovely tables. Thank you so much for this treasure-trove of creativity!
