I was asked to be in charge of a dinner party to commemorate the founding of the Relief Society (my church's women's organization). I really liked the bee skep centerpieces I used for a function last summer so I decided to rework them and chose the theme "Be Not Weary in Well Doing" since service is one of our main missions.
The little honey bee is very industrious. It has a lifespan of only a few months and contributes only 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey to it's hive. Yet since many, many bees all work together they are able to produce enough honey for themselves and more to spare.
Spring is at it's finest in Arizona right now so my committee chose to have an outdoor dinner in Sandra's garden. We used all white serving pieces layered on yellow and white tablecloths with burlap toppers.
The menu consisted of an enormous salad bar with more than 30 different toppings! We also served homemade orange rolls and a cupcake and cookie buffet.
If you look closely you can see little sugared bees on the cupcakes!
We sent our guests home with a favor bag of Bit O'Honey candies.
Even though we may only make a seemingly small contribution to our community or neighborhood, if we all work together I believe we can accomplish great things!
I like to join
