The theme I choose was, "Bloom Where You're Planted". After a long winter and with hopes of spring on the way, I wanted the night to up lift everyone and just make them smile! Here's what we did:
6:30pm-7pm Served Dinner
Homemade Chicken Salad with Croissants
A Fresh Green Salad
A Simple Fresh Cut Fruit Salad
We chose two Sisters in the ward to give talks. They did a fabulous job. I couldn't have asked for better speakers!
7:30-8pm Served Dessert
Cupcake sized Cheesecakes with fresh strawberries
Mason Jars filled with twigs that I spray painted green and glued 150 cheery blossoms onto! I found the twigs from a neighbor and borrow jars from Sisters in the ward. Another Sister used her silhouette cutter to do all the cherry blossoms.
Origami folded newspaper boxes filled with wheat grass. Here's the video tutorial I got ideas from. I had the wheat and got newspaper from the recycling center. I also filled the bottom of the boxes with recycled shredded paper.
The table runners were made with brown packaging paper from the dollar store!
The seed packets were fount at the dollar store as well, 4 for a 1$
