2nd. I have been tagged several times....I promise I will get to those soon.
3rd. Wednesday night instead of bible study, we all gathered at the church to decorate for the "Legacy Supper". It took all 8 of us over 4 hours to get everything done. Thank goodness we did it Wednesday because if Dala, Robbie & I would have started it Saturday morning we would have never got it all done in time. Robbie & Jeanne worked on putting the centerpieces together while Dala & I went up in the attic to see if there was anything we could use. I hate attics and was a bit freaked out coming down those stairs.
Dala, John, Robbie & Jeanne. Getting started.
The food came and everyone ran into the kitchen to eat. Thank goodness we did...we didn't know what we were in for at this point. Of course when I snapped this photo the women were already decorating...and here are the men....still eating.
They got busy not soon after this. Here is Doug the
He ironed 5 table clothes. And the stage curtain as well.
Pastor Allen watching Ron & John putting Tulle and ribbon around vanilla candles that the guest will receive as a gift.
They were so proud of themselves!
Our Pastor's wife, Jeanne....putting spikes on the flowers and such for the centerpieces.
John told me I was an an angel...so I put this crown of lights on my head.
John and Ron putting lights on the tree....Ron was telling John dirty jokes making him laugh. Yes, in church...telling dirty jokes. Will we go to hell?
Then Ron hit John in the nuts twice and he stood up holding himself and staying far away from Ron.
Meanwhile the Master Ironer Doug concentrated deeply on ironing the napkins.
Here Ruth was telling Ron & Allen that they folded the napkins wrong. They were a little frustrated with her. They re-did all but three of them.
Later on in the evening, Allen came up to John and said, "Look, I finally folded one right" Do you know what my husband did?.....he pulled it out of Allen's hand un-doing the fold and said, No, you suck! OMG! He did that to the pastor. Allen's mouth just dropped open....then he giggled. He knows that Doug, John & Ron are like that. While the other guys were doing napkins, John steamed 32 rice paper placemats...he burned his hands a dozen times.
We needed to have the one window decorated and didn't know about this when we went shopping. So we improvised and used the leftover tulle and a swag be bought.
Robbie, Me, Dala
This is the Welcome table. I think it came out pretty.
The table with the gift candles.
The room (without chairs) I did the tree on the right...the guys did the tree on the left and played around....I just noticed they didn't go all the way up with the lights. Arggg.
The table setting.
The group...all worn out!
It was a fun time. I was very impressed that the guys dived right in and helped!! I'm so proud of all of them. After the supper on Saturday night....we will return to the church and put the centerpieces in the atrium and decorate in there. I am looking forward to shopping and decorating for Christmas.
