Holidays Fit for The King

It's time for Holidays Fit for the King again! Yippee!! Each year our church puts on this event for the ladies. It's a day of preparing our hearts and our homes for the upcoming Christmas and Thanksgiving seasons. The women in our church are incredibly gifted hostesses, photographers, card makers, encouragers, bakers... I could go on... this event is designed to help the rest of us learn from them! We meet together for breakfast and a speaker (for you Providence women, this year we are meeting in the DLC to give us more room!) then we break out in to our workshops. If you're interested in seeing some of the pictures from last year's event, search "Holidays fit for the King" in the upper left hand corner of your screen in the search field. I posted a lot of the pictures from the tablescapes from last year.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 7 from 8:45am until noon. If you're ready to register, click here. The cost is $5 if you register before Oct. 13 then the price increases to $7. Register early to get the best selection of workshops. Here's the list of workshops offered:

Wow, this sounds like such a wonderful event. If only I was local (or even in the same country, lol!). I help run the women's organisation in my church (I'm LDS) and we were thinking of having an evening towards the end of the year to help the women prepare for Christmas. I'm now thinking of doing a similar event to yours, if you don't mind me 'stealing' the idea and altering it for our needs! We only have a small group of women (about 30) but if we encourage them to bring other family and friends... Thanks for the inspiration! Let's put Christ back in Christmas!! :) joanne xx

Joanne,
I'm so glad you like the idea! It's one of my favorite events of the year and I'd love to help your church however I can. If you have any questions as you begin the planning process, please email me!

Oh, I'm going to miss this event so much. It has always been my favorite. I might just have to make a special trip...:)
