Festival of Tables
Women's Ministry Theme Ideas

Julia Bettencourt
A Festival of Tables is just basically making each table at an event look different but within the same theme or idea.
Table Theme Ideas



Table teams are each appointed a table to decorate. It's always good to have a team captain so someone is ultimately in charge.

This is a great way to get your ladies involved in doing something for your event. It will not only allow them to feel useful and able to use their talents and gifts for the Lord but also will lighten the load of the leadership.

A Festival of Tables can be used for a seasonal banquet or any type of retreat or event.


Note:
One thing you will need to decide on is whether you want tableware such as the dishes/cups/silverware you'll be eating off of included on the tables or if you just want decorations only. That's something you will need to inform your table teams of ahead of time.

You'll also need to figure out how many tables you are doing. For some of these you may need to assign two or more tables of the same thing, depending on your total number of tables. Don't worry, nothing ever turns out the same when done by different people.
