Young Women transition Dinner to Relief Society

Our Relief Society once a year invites the Laurels to a Luncheon to help them make the transition to Relief Society a little easier. This Year, Pualaie who planned this Luncheon suggested the theme would be "Bows", They are a new fad right now; The Theme was "Stayed tied to your devine heritage through Jesus Christ." The hotest colors for spring is a pale green, so we went with the 3 colors; Black, Gold and Pale mint green. The table was fun to plan. What I loved were the Napkins made into Bow ties. We had gold chargers. Gold flatware, gold cups, the gold flatware was painted half way up the silverware with the same pale mint green. I was trying to bring more of the green color to the table by we tieing fabric to the back of the chairs into bows. The fun mixer game when they arrived had the goal to find out a little more about each of them. Each reached into a bag, without looking, pulling an item out of the bag. They then had to tell how that item related to them. Pualaie got a shell, It resemble her because she is from Hawaii. Our lunch was fantastic! We had "Bow Tie chicken Salad", fruit Kabobs, Crousant rolls, cupcakes with bows placed on the top. Then each girl received a bow tie necklace. Fun idea!

I couldn't resist decorating the stair rail with halloween lights and fall leaves. Black garland would look really cute too!
I made this halloween pillow. This was a fun easy project. I bought a 16x16 inch pillow form ( I found them cheapest at Walmart.) I cut out a 16x16 inch square (of the main color) I cut 2 pieces of the same color for the back, 13 inchesx 16'. sew 1 edge on both pieces (this is where you will insert the pillow form.) cut out the contrast color, for the bow 8 inches wide by 36 inches long. place right sides together and sew the sides. now, turn right side out and iron.fold tie in half, length wise and cut in half. turn under 1/4 inch on one end and sew together This will finish off the end of the ties. place with right sides together, first, the piece that is 16x16, right side facing up. next place tie on each side, the end that has not been sewn. fold in towards the center, so when you sew the sides together, the tie will be on the inside. place the 2- 13' pieces left, right side the finished edges are overlapinp each other in the middle. pin all the way around, then sew. turn right side out. insert pillow form, tie bow into a knot. you're done!
I made this withes caldron with feet, inspired by What a way to great the guests! I put this as the center piece on the food table and put dry ice in it. I used another regular withes caldron for our punch bowl. This Mummy's Night out" pinterst party was so fun. all of these friends can not wait until the Christmas one.

A Carmel apple you can decorate with

Fall and Carmel apples just go together!! Let's make one together that will last, won't rot, use year after year!
Items you will need are: Popcycle stick, Fake apple, Glue gun, Delta paint " Toffee Brown" Americana "Light Cinnamon " Acrylic clear spray ( I used matte)
Instructions: 1. Inset a sharp knife at the top of apple, insert popcycle stick in.
2. With hot glue gun, start gluing around the top of the apple, dripping glue on sides. ( This will be the carmel)
3. With a paint brush, paint 2 base coats onto the dripping glue (which will be the carmel) with " Toffee Brown" paint by Delta. When dry lightly paint on the "Light Cinnamon" by Americana.
4. Spray with clear acrylic sealer, this will make the "Carmel" shine. 5. Tie with a ribbon of your choice. ( I used a 3/8 inch X 12: orange. Easy, Cute, Great decorations (Watch out for people wanting to eat it!) Wrap it up in cellophane...great fall gift! 6. I made the glass dish stand, by going to D.I. ( Thrift store) and bought a small glass plate, with a short glass candle holder. I glued both together with "Gorilla Glue" Let it dry overnight, I placed a can of vegetables on top of plate, to make sure it would glue tightly) Have fun, Be Creative, \
