Table Toppings 4

Update:
Greetings to those of you visiting from The Inspired Room! I have a total of 5 posts in this Table Topping series. Just click on the 'blog archive' to see the rest.

I couldn't resist showing this yummy morsel of Christmas splendor.
When I walked into the room of decorated tables, it was as if a spotlight was shining on this one. It sparkled and glistened and beckoned me to come nibble just like Hansel and his little sister.
I think the hostess knew that everyone would want to nibble, so she provided these delicious favors. Needless to say, it was a very popular table.
That is bubble gum from Pottery Barn rolled up to look like a giant piece of candy. Real, homemade gingerbread men and a Lindt chocolate (in a pink wrapper, of course) to top it all off.
This is the centerpiece in all of its luscious wonder. Everything was glittery and sparkling. Even the snow was glistening.
Michelle made these beautiful gingerbread houses. The foundation is a wooden birdhouse.
Genius! The candy is ... real. The detail is amazing!
Here is the table in all of its pink-n-green glory.
I watched the women flock to this table. All of the seats were taken in a matter of minutes. It was like an after-christmas-sale. Those women staked their claim and didn't budge. Most of the women at the event mingled and chatted for the first 15 minutes; but not these ladies. They weren't risking losing the sweetest spot in the house!


I have a couple more tables to show (one is my own, that I hosted). Are you interested, or tired of this week's event?

I haven't commented before, but I just love to read what you have to say, and I would absolutely love to see your table and any others you would like to show. This creativity boggles and inspires all at once!

I'm very interested! I love it! That does look like a fun table. I'm one of those women that loves those little orange slices with the sugar all over them and the gumdrops - so I could totally pick this house to death and it would be "candy-less" by the time I got through! ha!

I've loved the pictures of the table toppings... for me the "decorator challenged" person that I am, they were nice to see. I just knew in reality I couldn't pull them off. ha!!!!

Don't worry.. I have no one commenting lately on my blog either. I think people are crazy busy. At least, that is what I am telling myself because I know I am!

Now you will have 200 people from The Inspired ROom to tell you to keep the comments coming. It's too funny because I just wrote up a post today saying the same thing since my comments had dropped off. Do the table tops anyhow, we love them.
