Yesterday I took with me a selection of vegetables and apples to help decorate the Church for the Harvest service.
With the help of one of the ladies at the Church and her daughter we arranged the vegetables on the front two window ledges.
The mixture of autumnal colours worked perfectly and looked especially effective.
The other lady had brought with her pine cones and these we arranged on the small step of the stage I went outside to collect fallen leaves to mix in with the pine cones. Helping to bring the outside in.
Using a wooden stand which I remembered finding when tidying the Church a number of weeks ago I thought would make a lovely display for a vase which the lady had brought with her along which we used to display a lovely Autumn inspired arrangement.
The wreath we thought would look effective at the centre of the stage below the beautiful stained glass window which when let produced a welcome glow.
Finally we created a waterfall table effect using a large and then three smaller tables in front which would be used to collect the harvest food for the local charity. I used a cream table cloth which had been a gift last Christmas from a leader in our previous Church along with one of my table runners.
The table with a selection of various items included a 30 year old glazed bread ornament made by a Church member, this obviously won’t be given away to the charity!
Happy Harvest Sunday Friends! 🍎
