Bloom Where You Are Planted!

Last evening we celebrated together as sisters in honor of the Relief Societies Birthday. The theme for the evening was "Bloom Where You Are Planted". They sent a sign up sheet around in Relief Society about a month ago asking for sisters to decorate tables using this theme. Of course I couldn't let this one pass by. I like to do these type of things. The theme was an easy one to work around and I had things already here to use. Instead of your normal pastel spring colors I went with something a bit different. At first when I finished up the table topper I thought to myself, does it look like were headed to Disneyland to meet Mickey and Minnie? It all started coming together as I collected the different things for the centerpiece. Here are the end results.
Each of the napkin holders had a cute little bug chocolate floating on top of it. We enjoyed a nice dinner and a wonderful message from Sis. Boothe centered around the theme. She read us a wonderful story called "Boxes for Katje". It has a meaningful message to it. I suggest you locate it at your favorite bookstore or library and read it. The evening was enjoyed by all those sisters attending. I had many compliments on such a cute table and a nice thank you for adding that little extra touch of spring we are all ready for. By the way, wasn't today a beautiful day (at least in my neck of the woods it was). Let's hope it's here to stay. Everyone think spring!

Ha,ha. I can see why you said it looks like Minnie with that red polka dot. I didn't think that at first though. Our RS birthday celebration is next week (because this week is spring break). I hope ours is as nice as yours (though I am sure it will be)

So cute Shannon. I love red too! And the yellow was perfect.

alaynamarriott said... are just too much! Everything you do is "shut up cute" like you White girls would put it. It was fun to get caught up on your blog. I'm still trying to figure out how you get so much accomplished. I would just love your secrets! Hope you are having a good day.
