Women Active for Christ Banquet

Last Tuesday our church hosted the Tulsa area Women Active for Christ banquet. There was a committee of about six of us that put it all together. There were almost a hundred women attending. This was my first experience with banquet planning, but it all went off without one single hitch.

We had a VERY limited budget to work with, and I had to do decorations for the dinner and a gift basket for the giveaway at the end.

This is the basket I put together. I LOVE doing gift baskets. I found the watering can 75% off at JoAnn Fabric and lots of little goodies to go inside at Michael's.






Purple is the Women Active for Christ's official color and the theme for the banquet was "Shine! Will you be a jewel in unusual settings?"


So, I found some sparkle ribbon, tuille, jewels and sequins and we all went to town "sparkle-izing" the church cafe.


Very simple, yet elegant and, thanks to some coupons and bargain shopping we came just under our budget.






One of the committee gals, who also happens to be our pastor's wife, was able to get a ton of materials donated and we made these cute, cute bracelets for all the attendees.




We had Zio's (Italian) cater for dinner and the men's group served all the women. I meant to get pictures of this, but Brittany had taken my camera upstairs with here while she helped with childcare. The men were decked out as waiters in black pants and white shirts.


Some of them even donned foreign accents for the evening.


And, they CLEANED UP THE ENTIRE CAFE AFTERWARDS!


I KNOW!


After dinner, the Passion players (our church's drama team, that Brittany is part of) put on a hilarious skit, we had some good worship music and a message by a precious older woman from our church.


It was a LOT of work, but everything turned out wonderfully!
