I've not had much of a chance to work on projects around the house or do
There is also another reason I have had to put household projects and blogging on hold...I have been working FEVERISHLY on some assorted craft projects for an upcoming marriage retreat in February. I can't wait...it is going to be SOOO much FUN...First Apostolic Church (my church) is hosting this retreat (February 16-18 in Branson, Missouri, Honeysuckle Inn for anyone in the area interested in coming)...and we are going to have a few things for sale there to raise money for our building fund...I am SOOO excited...this is ONE of the things I have been working on....
Embellished photo frames...of course, I got this idea from Kristen @ Kristen's Creations but took it a step farther by adding a little inspirational flair with scrapbook paper and vellum...I should've taken more pics as I have several more varieties made up but I've just not had the time for picture taking...I will take more pics before the sale, maybe even after we have everything set up to share with you...PROMISE...I will also tell you a little more about them and how I made them...but for now I NEED your help...
I have been asked to decorate for this event, SIGH, and I need some ideas...I have a few ideas of my own, but what I am looking for is some ideas that incorporate both feminine and masculine properties...it seems that when we decorate for banquets and weddings and such, they are frou frou and feminine...you know an all white wedding is beautiful but it seems so "girly" to me...(yes, I know weddings are all about the bride), but a marriage retreat should be about both the wife AND husband and I want something that incorporates a little masculinity...know what I mean? Anyway, I could use your help and ideas...I'm all ears!!! Can't wait to hear from you...and...THANKS I knew I could depend on you!!!
Since posting this I have had a few folks ask what the space I am decorating is like and the theme of the event. Sorry for not posting this information originally...
To be honest I am going into this blindly. I have never personally seen this banquet room. I have only seen the layout of the room online. From what I can tell, the space is just a plain old square banquet room which will be filled with enough tables to accomodate around 100-150 people. I will most likely be using round tables and white tableclothes (I may be able to get black tableclothes) from the hotels catering service. The theme of the event is "Marriage, it's forever". I hope this helps! Thanks for your input!!!
