This past Wednesday was our ward's Relief Society Birthday Dinner. The committee planning the event asked several women in the ward to decorate and provide eight place settings for a table. Each table was provided with a black tablecloth and the color palette of hot pink, black and white to run with.
With the event being more on the formal side, I dressed the not-so-formal standard church building chairs with crisp white chair covers and hot pink organza sashes. I started out the table with two intersecting satin runners, decorative black and creme boxes topped with a beautiful floral arrangement and hot pink frilly handbag. I then surrounded the centerpiece with an embellished hot pink picture frame, black dress form (from Londyn's room) and all different shades of pink faux pearls.
I used my everyday square white plates and borrowed gorgeous goblets and flatware from my generous mom. I then added a custom labeled votive candle and individual mini purse (Fortune cookie inside, adding a little touch of Asian flair) for each guest to take home.
I had tons of fun working on my table but I'm not going to lie, it was stressful. Nonetheless, I am blessed to have participated in such a fabulous event. The food was delish and the Spirit was strong. I am honored to work along side such talented women in my ward.
