Our women’s ministry group got together this weekend for a wonderful time of celebrating. We ordered in a little Swiss Chalet, did an ornament craft together, and enjoyed some sweet Christmas desserts. We went with a snowflake theme this year.
The main tables were decorated with simple twig centre pieces. I spray painted some sticks with silver spray paint -I do love a little spray paint! Then we put them into vases with some “snow” and decorated with some snowflake and silver ornaments.
I also decorated the tables with lots of candles, and these sweet mason jar snow globes.
We had fun making a simple ornament before dinner, and then we had take-out Swiss Chalet chicken, it was simple and everyone enjoyed it. We had a simple white cranberry juice punch, along with bottled water, coffee and tea.
I really liked how the snowflake lights looked on the drink table, such a simple way to add a little Christmas sparkle.
This table was waiting for the chicken to arrive.
After dinner there was a beautiful dessert table, with some traditional Christmas treats, and snowflake themed treats too.
I made these vanilla cupcakes, decorated with some simple snowflake sprinkles.
I used these sweet little snowflake place card holders to hold our dessert labels. We also had tiramisu in individual cups, and several kinds of delicious Christmas squares.
My friend Heather made these gorgeous snowflake sugar cookies.
And, she also made these cute little mini cheesecakes. She made the decorations with melted chocolate wafers piped into designs, and then placed on the cheesecakes after they hardened. I love the “w” and “m” for “Women’s Ministries” -love is in the details.
We had a wonderful evening together, celebrating the true meaning of Christmas, light shining in the darkness. I hope you having the blessing of amazing, encouraging, fun women in your life, and an opportunity to get together this Christmas and celebrate, because sometimes life really is a party!
