Spring Table Setting - Relief Society March Party!

March 17th commemorates the organization of the Relief Society of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am so happy to be a part of this amazing organization - the largest women's organization of it's kind in the world! To celebrate, each ward (congregation) plans a "March Party" to get together and enjoy each other's company, while celebrating the Relief Society. 

Our ward decided to try a fun idea - they asked a few different women to decorate their own table - I think there were about 8 of us. Here is the table setting I came up with:
I went with a bright and airy style, which I really love. I love the chartruese and turquoises (the colors don't come out well in these photos - taken in ugly flourescent lighting). I found that fun ceramic owl at Michaels when they were having that whole collection on sale for 50% off. LOVE! The little plants I found at Superstore (in Canada), and the frame I found at a dollarstore. I painted it white, and added my FREE PRINTABLE that I created to match the theme colors.

I also found this fun quatrefoil fabric at Fabricland, and sewed these placemats to match. 
Here are a few of the tables some of the other ladies created - I loved seeing their creative flair come out in their table settings.

It was a fabulous evening. I loved spending time together, getting to know the women in my new ward, and having a lot of fun together. Oh, and the food was amazing:
We also did an activity where we each filled out a card that said one act of service that stood in need of. Then we all placed the cards on a table. When everyone had done this, we each went up to the table and picked a card with a service that we felt we could help with. We all left the evening ready to serve and be served. It was wonderful! 

I love being a part of the Relief Society - a fabulous organization that helps me look outside myself and see to the needs of those around me. I feel loved, supported, and cared for - no matter where we live. It's such a blessing.

What beautiful and creative tables! I love the idea of trading ways we need help and ways we can serve others. Great idea!
