Information on the Mother Daughter Banquet Organization

We are organizing for a Mother/daughter banquet at our church. This idea was picked up at a Baptist Convention. We have general objectives, but no specific objectives. This organization (Mother Daughter Banquet) is meant to bring the women closer together. I think that someone "heard" about this and doesn't have the details. We don't have any structure or guidelines.

We will have our banquet in October and we are planning other activities such as one or two day outings. If you are in the South and have any information on this organization, please advise. Thanks.

I don't know about the organization but you can plan your own Mother/Daughter banquet. Just pick a theme that you would like to use, this year we picked "God's Princesses". Choose your colors. This year, different ladies used their good dishes and decorated each table, but in the past we decorated according to the theme. For decorations, we used a large high back chair for a throne and decorated it with purple silk and laid a crown in the seat, this represented Jesus. Each girl attending, from ages 4 to 11 were given little gift bags with lip balm and small bottles of body wash. The teenage girls were given a bag with a large body wash and sponge. Several years ago we used a "girly" theme. Tables were decorated in pinks, purples and whites with feathers boas, shoes and purses. The sky is the limit. Google creative ladies ministry and there are lots of ideas for women's meetings. May yours be blessed and full of love!

Ours is always Mother's Day weekend, morning brunch. Your menu can range from hot egg bakes, to simple rolls, juice, coffee and milk. Our speaker this year was a collector of aprons and the history of them throughout time. She had over 300 samples, each person got to wear one during the event.

My part of the event this year was to make aprons to give to the little girls. I sewed 3 dozen chef aprons of all colors, etc. In the event we did not have enough, we did a name to the basket drawing and each child came up when their name was called. I had enough and when all the girls arrived on stage, we then impromptu same Jesus loves me, which we figured all would know. Our center piece decor was old kitchen utensils. gathered from many of the ladies treasure boxes. Lots of pieces of curly ribbon, a few pastel balloons.

I did the video tape of the event, will be in the church library for viewing.

Other times the theme was just families in the church that would sing songs, some would include the audience. We have a specially marked plate on the tables which then win a door prize. In the past we have had prizes for the most kids, grandchildren, oldest, youngest, came the furthest, etc. But now a generic prize is a potted plant, one for each table's center piece.

A work unit serves or a caterer, or the men of the church, depending on the number involved.

Growing up this used to be an evening event (in my home church in another state) that was a full banquet meal, cooked and served by the men. The women still do the men's banquet (father/son) at that church. More hotdish/potluck.

Hope these ideas help. They have been going on for decades, 50 years maybe?
