Bloom Where You're Planted

We had a wonderful Relief Society Activity last night. We had such a great turn out - lot's of participation and help! Thank you EVERYONE who contributed to a wonderful night.

Our theme was "Bloom Where You're Planted" We read stories that high-lighted each point of the RS declaration and hopefully strengthened sisters individual worth. Here are a few pictures from the night.There were 9 points and after a sister shared her story, she planted her flower. Aren't they adorable? That is the creative genius of Emily, my RS activity coordinator.

Here's our table decorations. I painted 42 little pots different colors and made the little paper flowers. The pots were filled with jelly beans and m&m's.

Joy and Courtney made this SUPER delicious cake. Yes - the pot is a cake. Isn't it awesome?!
These pots are not cake, but what we served dinner in. We had 4 delicious salads and different breads (foccacia, baguette and sour dough). As serving spoons we used gardening tools. It was so fun. I had remembered my mom did a Stake RS dinner in pots like this many years ago - who knows, maybe she had the same theme....I just remember the pots.
The night turned out great! It's so fun when things work out so well!
