Ladies Candlelight Dinner

Every year at my church, we put on an amazing event for women in our church and community! It has been a huge blessing to me as well as many other ladies. We had around 400 women attend this awesome ladies night. It was a blast! We had around 50 tables seating 8 women. Each table had a hostess that served the ladies and decorated the table with their style! It is so awesome to see all the personalities within people's dishes and decor! Our theme this year was "REFLECTIONS". We inspired with the typography craze right now for the decor! We used mirror garland and candles too! I hosted a table to my friends, sister- Chelsea and cousin-Molly! It was such a blessing spending the evening with my friends! The event is a catered meal with live music and a guest speaker. This year we had a friend of mine, Jen Anderson share her story on how God has carried her through so many circumstances! She nailed it. It was a blessing hearing her heart as she poured her words out to us. I can't wait for next year! 

This was our 5x7 invite. I took this off my iPhone, so its not the whole thing. I love it! Below are some detail shots of the evening! Lots of my table decorations that I through together last minute. I gave a little mirror from Pier 1 Imports to each of my guest! 

Below is the stage set! We had the heart banner designed by our Assistant Youth Pastor, Jorden! He nailed it! I am in LOVE with it. So great! It is perfect! We used our glass podium, a Chandelier from a wedding, black curtains, mirror garland that turned into being a headache to make, and my Pier 1 Imports candle stands from my wedding! 

My friend Kati and I put in long hours at the church between Sunday-Monday that we opted for the church bathroom to get ready! ha. She even had to run and buy a shirt because she was locked out of her house and slept over at my house.....We were a hot mess. :) We put her sister, Lindsay, (also a Hair Stylist) to whip up a style for Kati. This is Kati's daughter, Franki! Precious!!!!!

My girlfriend- Danielle! She hosted a table  and was apart of the special music! Love you Nell.

All in All it was a great event! We couldn't have done it without all the volunteers and servant hearts behind it all. Thanks everyone!
