Lake Highlands women got into the Mothers’ Day mood Friday, enjoying the first annual Hearts & Hands Tablescapes Luncheon benefiting the women’s and children’s programs of Healing Hands Ministries. As you can see by the smiling faces in my photo slideshow below, attendees had a ball.

Committee members Paula Davis, Debby Gray, Linda Imhoof, Carolyn Murray, Lisa Sims, Susan Solomon and Jane Waters pulled off a perfect feminine fundraiser, with 27 sold-out tables embellished with the finest details in unique themes.

My spot was decorated with “Daisies” by HHM’s Executive Director Janna Gardner using garden items loaned from Calloway’s, and I admired the “Susan” table next to us, attended by 8 women with the same name. Donna Williams let her inner-princess reign when creating “Pinkalicious,” and the girls at Robin Crawford’s “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” marveled at her special touches. Wildcat mom Lori Burns decorated with baseballs and Crackerjacks, and Christmas-lover Paula Davis built a real-brick chimney for her tabletop Santa. Several local merchants designed settings ripe with ideas for hosting Mothers’ Day brunches, graduation parties and other celebrations.
