Relief Society Artwork Birthday Dinner

2010 April 26

How amazing CUTE marvelous is this?

IMAGINE.

Imagine having a graphic artist in your ward. Now imagine having a website designing CELEBRITY in your ward.

{Silence} while I wait for you take it in…

Julie of LeeLou Blogs lives in my neighborhood congregation. This means…

Every once in a while when I send out a particularly whine-y mayday to her, with plenty of extra notice and time, she makes me invitations and posters and FABULOUS graphics. Just because she CAN.

Are you jealous yet? Go ahead… you can tell me.

Now imagine this little poster reduced in size to perfectly fit on the back of a seed packet. Yup we handed out seed packets with the invitations glued to the backs… complete with a garden theme for the night. (Seriously, think rain boots filled with potted plants…)

Normally I’m only so creative, ask me to bake brownies, I’m your girl. Come up with enough food to feed 75 women? Easy Peasy. But I cannot take any credit for the cuteness factor on this, how totally awesome is getting a seed packet as part of your invitation? Is that the best Relief Society {Enrichment} idea?

Pssst: Want another great RS Birthday Theme Idea?

LET THEM EAT CAKE! Throw a birthday cake themed party the sisters won’t forget. Come up with several easy & fabulous cake recipes and vote a winner.. use the cakes as decor for the tables! Add lots of helium balloons and you’ll be all set.

    I had to snicker at “Church Dress Suggested”. At our church, on nice summer-like days, my pastor will wear jeans and flip-flops (the good ones) to do the teaching. :)

    I love your RS dinner idea. What did you do for a program that evening?

      I should update this post I get that question a lot! :)

      We were all about the ‘social’ for this event. Getting to know the sisters better etc.

      We created a few different ‘Activities’…

      1) not totally an activity… but I placed Months at the tables, We had maybe 4 or 5 tables and I Placed Jan-March at one, and April – June on another and so on..
      Then when people walked in the door they were instructed to find their ‘birth month’ and sit at that table. (I had to warn them NOT to EAT THE CAKES btw!!!)
      After dinner was served and it was time for dessert, Everyone was instructed to change tables; get up and find the birth month table their MOTHER was born in.
      This served to ‘mix’ up where people sat. etc.. gettingto know more/different people etc.
      I was new to the ward!
      So my goal was ‘get to know your sisters better’.

      2) We went around the room and did a very short introduction, My name is __________ and My favorite cake is__________. then I had small prizes for anyone who could go around the room and name everyone and their favorite cake!

      3) in advance I asked several sisters (especially older sisters and sisters who were from other countries or had an interesting background) to be prepared to describe a favorite birthday from when they were a child or teenager. One sister lived through the war in England as a child and she thought it was a boring story but we were all FASCINATED!

      We used balloons for decorations and very bright plastic table clothes over the church’s white table linens.
      I forget what we served for dinner, but it was very girlie. Yummy green salad with a chicken/croissant sandwich I think, maybe some rice as well??

      Good luck!
