Each year our sweet lady that has organized this Banquet for the past 25 years~ picks a theme. Usually months and months in advance. She then prays about a speaker. This year our speaker was Mrs. Grace Hardy ~from Oklahoma  Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City. She is a beautifully seasoned Titus woman. I so enjoyed listening to her speak. She spoke on how our daughters will grow up to act just like their Mom. Her devotion was taken from Titus. 

The decorating theme was a kitchen~ vintage look that you remember seeing in Grandma's kitchen. It was great fun to decorate. I love vintage and I love aprons. Aprons were worn, used as decoration and handed out as door prizes.  My Hannah won a new apron but decided to keep it for her hope chest.

My Table

Several ladies decorate and hostess a table. It spreads the work around and our ladies do such a great job.
I so enjoy seeing all the ideas. As a hostess you bring the table settings, silverware, napkins and a favor or goodies that you might want to put on your table. You also hostess your table~ filling drinks and coffee for the ladies who sit at your table. Most items on my table belonged to my Grandmother.

A Cookbook was handed out to each lady that attended. It featured recipes from our church ladies.
