A Tikset, A Tasket...God has filled my blessing basket
Women's Ministry Theme
Posted November 01, 2001
This page has been updated periodically.
This theme centers on being thankful for our blessings.
Could be used at Thanksgiving or any time of year just by changing the decorations.

that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. Hebrews 13:15

Color: fall colors
Fall decorations and the things of harvest.
Mums or any fall flowers
Vines, branches and twigs.
Scatter fall leaves (silk or plastic ones) down the middle of the tables along with mini gourds and pumpkins.
You can hollow out mini pumpkins, gourds or apples to make candle holders.
For mini pumpkins and gourds, you can hollow out just enough to push a votive in or hollow out most of the inside and put in a tea light.
Horn of Plenty Focal Point
A Good size table top cornucopia of fruit and veggies and harvest things
Gather a large mixture of fall things to make a display.
Use hay or straw bales.
Please be careful because of allergies and also keep the display a good distance from any food serving as the smell of hay can sometimes be overwhelming.
Add in mums or any fall flowers, cornstalks, a bushel basket of apples or leaves.
Use your imagination and put several fall items together.
Put a drop cloth down under any hay or cornstalks you may use. It will make clean up a lot easier. You can cover any showing edges with leaves.
Use fake or floral fall leaves and not the real ones because of clean up.
