Beginning of a Christmas Gala

 

 

I have the great privilege to host a table at our Christmas Gala at church.  This event is a women’s gathering and amazing time of fellowship.  This post is going to highlight the creation process of the table.  Myself and two of my friends will host the table.  A total of 8 people will sit at our table and we will create the atmosphere.  An atmosphere of hospitality, beauty and welcoming God’s presence is what we are trying to achieve.

THE GIFT

Candy Cane bookmarks with the Legend of the Candy Cane Bookmark

We always give a gift to every guest at our table to keep with theme this is a great idea.

Communication

I don’t care how well I communicate but somedays the story below is how it feels. Enjoy!

Milk and eggs

This is a story which is perfectly logical to all   males:

A wife asks her husband,

“Could you please go shopping for me and buy   one carton of milk,

And if they have avocados, get 6.”

A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.

The wife asks him, “Why did you buy 6 cartons   of milk?”

He replied, “They had avocados.”

(If   you’re female, I’m sure you’re going back to read it again! Males will get it   the first time.)

Pinterest Just Got Even Better!

I just love Pinterest.  It is like a living magazine.  Plus, I have found some friends who are extremely creative, fashionable and have amazing taste. 

 

Pinterest has a new feature and now your amazing pins can be shared with other Social Media sites like Facebook and Twitter.    Just click on Repin and get ready to expand your pin.

Then I just love this new Feature – you can select if you want to share this pin with Facebook and Twitter.    Just check the boxes and then share to the two other Social Media Sites!  So easy and so fun.
