Can I just say my committee is fantastic?! Elaine found a great berry french toast recipe, we made 5 pans. Karen cooked the sausage (well it was from costco the precooked so that was warmed up), We had a bowl of peaches, pineapple orange juice, tiny quiche from costco & orange slices. Kelly came up with the game & Birthday gift supplies.
(Before it was cooked^^)
Part 1: Eat and PhotosThe activity started at 10am, so we had a quick prayer to bless the brunch and get their food, and get their picture taken in the photo booth I put together (I used some stuff from my halloween costume box), and printed out free mustache/lips etc and taped them to skewer sticks I already had in my pantry. I bought the green backdrop at Michael's, they have large rolls of paper for bulletin boards for about $10. I taped it with packaging tape to the accordion door separating the gym and the chapel.
Then we had 40 minutes to eat and socialize.
I forgot to take a pic of the food table-- oops!
Part 2: Game/PrepOn the table was a multiple choice questionnaire (had about 15-20 questions on it) about the history of Relief Society for the sisters to fill out, which we later played a little jeopardy with. Before the activity we used magnets to put numbers on the back of some of the chairs, and after we ATE for 40 minutes, at 10:40, we started the Game. Robin was leading it, asked who had #1 on their chair and they had to answer the question on the questionnaire (with neighbor help if necessary--) everyone had fun talking about the questions and laughing about some of the funny or unexpected correct answers.
Part 3: Musical Number & 5 min of RS President Closing Remarks (mostly about visiting teaching.)
The committee made tiles with the word "sisteRS" on it (get it??) as a birthday gift for each sister to take home. Kelly found the design and printed them on super thin paper (not vellum). The we mod-podged it to the tile.
Closing Prayer and Clean up!
