We had an apron themed banquet for our revealing party for our Praying Sisters. It was so much fun, the only thing is that after looking at my pictures I realized how much weight I have gained! Ugggh! It's been too hot to walk anywhere, I need to start doing exercise videos but my VCR broke! Okay back to the party! As everybody probably knows by now, I have a fascination with aprons! So I was so excited that Pam, our coordinator for Secret Sisters liked my theme idea! My pictures are kind of fuzzy, so sorry about that!
To decorate, I hung a clothesline from the ceiling and then hung aprons up with clothespins. I hung a clothesline on each wall. I also tied waist length aprons across the window. I then tied any leftover aprons on the backs of the chairs. We borrowed tablecloths from everybody and put the like colorstogether for the tables. We were going for a country look and put mason jars with zinnias on the tables and I made candle holders with short mason jars that I put a tea light candle and buttons in. We drank out of mason jars and put the flowers on crocheted doilies or washcloths that my friend Susan makes and sells.
Since we all used things from home, we did not need to spend very much money at all! The zinnias came from Pam's garden, and we borrowed the jars from Pam, Cara and Susan. I had a ton of buttons we used, and I have a lot of tea lights I got on clearance years ago that I have been slowly using.
We put the vintage tablecloths on the serving table and I sprinkled buttons all around. We had brisket, sweet potato salad, cream biscuits, watermelon, coconut cream cake and tea for dinner.
We all posed for pictures! Everyone has a unique apron and we all shared aprons stories or memories or in my case facts about aprons. We then opened our gifts and ate and Miss Debra gave us a devotion and Pam read us a poem about apron pockets and God. (I have had several people ask me about this poem, I got it from here: http://www.juliabettencourt.com/download/apronpocketsskit.pdf , there are also a lot of great ideas on here too!)
Lynn gave me a new hat a new hostess apron. Don't you just love this apron? I've been wanting one for a while! Chris said my hat is a hillbilly hat - silly man! Thanks again Lynn!
Thank you for joining us at our party, I hope you had as much fun looking at all of the aprons and fun we had as we did! I'll finish up my pictures with another picture of the cake and another hostess apron. And a cute baby apron.
