Mother-Daughter Luncheon (catch-up post from May)

Each year we like to have a mother-daughter party at church.  We normally do this at Christmas time, and it's usually crazy busy then.  This year we decided to do it in May for Mothers' Day.  Our theme was "It's in the Bag."  Here are some photos from that day.

The tables set up

I was really wanting some polka dot serviettes (napkins), but things like that are expensive here.  I walked into the supermarket one day and they had these serviettes for sale, really cheap.  I like to think that God had something to do with that!

Monique-a huge help with this.

Mother-Daughter photo time. 
Monique helped me set this up, but Abby was not in the mood for photos.

And again

And one more

Time to eat!
Here are some details: for lunch we served pumpkin soup, potato soup, and bread rolls.  We then had carrot cake, banana cake, and chocolate cake for pudding.

We played a really fun game that I found on-line somewhere.  As each of the ladies came in we would weigh their handbag on a kitchen scale.  The one who had the heaviest bag won a prize and the one who had the lightest bag also won a prize.  We also played pass-it-up.

I found some interesting facts on-line about purses and used these on cards on the tables for part of the decorations.

I hope the ladies enjoyed this as much as I did.  Thank you, Monique, for your help setting up.  Thank you, Trish, for looking after Abby so I could set up!
