On-line sources describe a "table-scape" as "an artistic arrangement of articles on a table" or, a little more definitively, "A decorative arrangement of ornaments or other objects on a tabletop."
But at the Semmes Camellia Festival, Saturday, January 27, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Semmes First Baptist Church, the "table-scapes" that visitors see will be much more than just an arrangement on a table. They tell a life story, recall a special event, show a treasured collection or pay homage to the past. All feature camellias as accents or the main focus.
For more on this annual event, call Alice Baker, 251-645-3280.
Pictured are a few of the beautiful, meaningful 'scapes seen at previous Festivals (perhaps they will inspire others to use their imaginations and stories to create their own unique table-scape.)
