After another brief blogging break I am back with plenty to write about. We made a last minute trip back to Canada.
It was wonderful.
Upon returning home, it was time to put together the YW in Excellence and New Beginnings Evening. What fun!
The tasks were delegated out and I was quite content with getting a creative aspect of it; the table setting. The previous year, they had done a great idea of setting a vase of flowers in each value color on the main table. At the end of the evening, the girls could come up and make their own Value Bouquet and we decided to do that again this year. They LOVED this. Combine the flowers with colored table cloths and some table cards and you have a great table setting for the front of the room.
Which brings me to the table cards. I made these with the intention that they would be used throughout the year as a table setting during our value themed months.
It is a little difficult to tell from the picture, but the value text is raised and mounted onto white corrugated poster board, which was then mounted on to folded, white cardstock. Tie a color coordinated ribbon around and voila!
The evening was so enjoyable and it was great to see the girls receive recognition for everything that they had been busy with during the last year. We have a very talented group of girls (and I am not the least bit biased).
