BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - If you’re wondering how you’ll decorate for the holidays or how you’ll take your current décor to the next level, the Woman’s Club of Bryan-College Station has an event for you. The organization is hosting its third annual Tablescapes: Christmas on Carter Creek event Wednesday and Thursday.

“There are lots of words to describe this,” Woman’s Club member Randi Mays-Knapp said. “We have whimsical, we have inspiring, we have spiritual, and we have just beautiful and then we have a lot of history in each of the tables.”

The tables are curated by designers, florists, business owners and Woman’s Club members. Each display has unique pieces like family heirlooms, one-of-a-kind Chrystal sets and/or elaborate floral arrangements.

Woman’s Club member Daisy White’s table is called “A Visit From St. Nicholas,” and every piece on her table is from her home. Some of the items on her table include a Santa centerpiece along with crystal and a biscuit tin from Germany.

Like White, designer Lou Ann McKinney incorporated pieces from her home along with new items. Her table is called “Sparkle and Shine” and includes an angel figurine and China passed down from family and decorative napkin rings that she describes as “something new.”

The Dirt Road Rustic owner, Veronica Fly, and manager, Cheyenne Castilleja, designed a table inspired by the Nativity scene. Fly said the two want people to take in the birth of Jesus and the reason why Christmas is celebrated.

Sparrow Lane owners Karen McDonald and Kaitlin Teel created Demilune table displays that showcase their love for woodland animals. McDonald said she hopes visitors will be inspired by their displays along with the others and build upon the designs at their homes.
