Sumptuous Settings for Meals on Wheels

Posted by  ·  May 2, 2009  ·  Last Updated: May 2, 2009

My little project I have been working on was a table setting for Sumptuous Settings, a charity event for Meals on Wheels. I helped my friend Missy with a May Day inspired table setting.


Each contributor was given a 10′ X 10′ space to fill.



Missy’s dishes adorned the table,



along with flowers and May Day baskets filled with cupcakes and chocolate flowers.



Missy made darling May Day cones that hung from the backs of the chairs.

    May Day is right around the corner everyone!
    This year to add to your May baskets, you might want to add my new children's book all about May Day!
    It will be out this March and the title is- "Lily Bouquet and a special May Day"! By: Sue Wolfe Published by Tate Publishing. It's a cute love story about May Day.
