We girls recently had the happy opportunity to host a Valentine’s Day luncheon for the ladies at our Church! Our Church is small on the people side, but big on the love side.
It was so fun to plan our menu. The main course was manicotti, French bread, and salad, with three different yummy desserts — homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie, Cream Wafers, and Creamy Strawberry Dessert.
Our pastor’s wife supplied the drinks (raspberry lemonade and water). We decorated each place with a special party favor bag, complete with candy hearts, red & pink Hershey kisses, and York peppermint patties, all tied up with red and white twine.
We dipped into our Mom’s vast (and gorgeous) collection of vintage tablecloths for all the tables, and borrowed her ruby red vase collection for all the flowers.
We had mood music on (of course). How is it that music softly playing in the background can make such a difference??
It was such a wonderful experience for us, and a great time was had by all! It’s amazing how taking just a couple hours out of one Saturday to spend time with others can be so refreshing. We are already planning our next luncheon (picnic theme!), and can’t wait.
