My ministry is planning Rainbow Tea. We need some ideas for inspiration.

Looking for information and ideas on organizing and for food for a rainbow tea church fundraiser.

Now we just decorate the tables. The rainbow tea is an appreciation program for our deacon ministry. Each deacon draws a color from the hat and that deacon and the members under his name wear that color for the rainbow tea. Usually the deacons wear white suits with the tie set of their color. We use red, green, blue, orange, purple, and yellow. Each table is decorated in the deacon's color. The food is prepared in the color of the table.
This year for the second time my husband who is a deacon has green which is fine because I still have decorations. The members under their deacon's name brings a dish for the table. We have used two tables, one for decorations and one for food. This year we are planning to use one table for all the foods. The church provides two meats and tea for everyone. We have a program introducing the deacons and their wives wearing their color and something is read about each color.
There will be singing and poems read and sometimes a short messages then we go to the fellowship hall for the rainbow tea. My group is preparing a broccoli casserole, string bean casserole, cabbage, butter beans, green salad, quiche, pistachio pudding, cake with green icing, my famous green punch, Kool aid pie, green jello with Cool Whip topping, green apples, grapes, and kiwi.
