Church Events:

If your Women’s Ministry is planning a special event, consider a women’s tea with Jane Austen’s prayers as the centerpiece:

  • For smaller events, create an intimate tea table and provide tea, food, and a short program for your guests.
  • For larger events, consider having members of your group sign up to host a tea table. Each hostess can decorate her table with her own tea things.
