Monday Mayhem - Belle's Brunch







This weekend I had the privilege to drive up to my home church and be a guest at my mom's table she was hosting for the Annual Belle's Brunch. At this brunch, women of the church reserve a table to host, and they decorate the whole thing...bringing in their own china, silverware, glasses, decor...whatever they want! Then they invite 7 other ladies to sit at their table. It's a great way to bring your friends who have never been to church, to your church.

This year my mom and sister worked together to create this:

Isn't that beautiful? This year's theme for the brunch was "Peace". Can you see the red "peace" signs on the table? They were red and glittery, matching exactly with the candle balls!

And remember in last week's Trendy Tuesday the wreaths my sister showed us all how to make in just a few minutes? She made 8...one for each chair, and each lady was allowed to take their wreath home as a gift!

Here's all of the ladies at our table...

We had a fabulous time! They served us hash browns, an egg casserole, pastries and we each got a bell cookie on the way out! The speaker was wonderful and the christmas music was a joy to listen to. We already have some ideas for next year's table! If your church doesn't already do this in the womens' ministry, its a great idea!

Fa la la la la! We had fun didn't we? I must say, our table looked more complete after we added more votive candles and serving dishes. :D All of the ladies did such a wonderful job and the men were so gracious by serving us...so well indeed!
