Relief Society Birthday Dinner.

The Relief Society of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the largest women's organization in the world. And wouldn't you know, I'm blessed to be a part of it. This coming Tuesday my local congregation is celebrating the 167 years since the Relief Society's founding. We are having a simple dinner, listening to a few inspired talks, and enjoying time together as sisters of a loving Heavenly Father.
My contribution to this event was the decor. I decided to keep things as simple as possible due to my current [very] pregnant state. There will be planted spring flowers as centerpieces, sweet yellow and white dotted table coverings and these little treats for all that attend. Inside are flower seeds. Do you see a theme here? You guessed it...spring, growing, blooming. I'm thankful for this new season that's upon us and the fresh start it affords. I'm even more thankful for this amazing organization and the way it enables each of us to bloom as daughters of God.


And in case this babe doesn't hold out until the evening of the dinner, I've got everything packed and ready to go. Someone else will just have to set it up.

  10. Good grief, those are darling! I've never seen anything like that at my RS parties! I want to buy you for our ward... maybe as a tithe.
