Light the World

This year, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has chosen for the second year in a row the theme "Light the World" for it's Christmas initiative.  

I made some Light the World printables last year, but I wanted to make a few new ones! These are formatted for an 8X10.  Simply right click on the picture, save it, and print it from your computer or send it to your favorite printing place (Walmart, Costco...)

What will you do to #LighttheWorld this Christmas Season?

For our Halloween Luncheon, we found witches hats at a local grocery store for only $1.00.  We added some feathers and a bow and they made a fun centerpiece.  We gave them away as door prizes and 10 people went home with really cute witch hats.    We feel like the paper placemats add a lot of color and they really protect our nice tablecloths also!!

We can always have “S’MORE” fun!!

S’mores have been so popular the last few years, and who doesn’t love a roasted marshmallow, with melted chocolate on a graham?    We just made a fake fire with tissue paper adding in a package of marshmallows and a roasting stick.   It is always fun to have a “give away” on the table for one lucky person to take home.

We can’t always do a favor for them, but the months we can it’s so fun.  This month we sent them home with S’more to pop in the microwave and enjoy!!

This is Your Life

In October,  we had a speaker come and encourage everyone to write their life stories.    I wanted a vintage look for the subject of  “Life Stories” and so I used hand crocheted doilies as a table topper and then folded the pages of a book to make it look decorative.   We added a quote about life stories and of course the
pumpkin for color…. you have to use pumpkins in October

P. S. You are loved

Inspired by mailing love letters, we chose “P. S. You are loved” for our theme in February.
 Using Poster board we made the mailboxes for centerpieces.
We thought the mini-mailboxes with chocolate nuggets in were adorable.
The napkins were folded and tucked inside these cute envelopes.
 Just a fun wall decoration to add to the atmosphere of the room.  

Sometimes it’s hard to have the table look like what you picture in your mind.
We love when it all comes together!!

Luck of the Irish

It’s always nice when a Dollar Store come through for you….  These green felt derby hats were fun to decorate the tables with.
The Gold poster board under the centerpiece added some “shiny”

 This Lucky Penny was just a fun thing to have waiting for them at the table, who doesn’t need a wee bit of luck?
Thank you for the free and cute printable:

Red, White, and Blue!

I love America and you can never go wrong with Red, White and Blue!!   This month we used a Kerr jar and wrapped it with Burlap and red and blue ribbon and added an American flags.  There was a flag for everyone to take home with them.  

As a favor we wrapped a box of sparklers in the Red, White and blue napkins tied with jute.  (Did you know if you fray burlap it gives you great jute looking thread to use?)
The Patriotic dishes from Costco added a lot of color to the table with the scattered York mints with their Red and Blue packaging.
