Church Fundraiser Reunion Dinner

My church is having a fundraiser reunion dinner. The theme is 'Grow the Church'. Any suggestions on table decor?

Potted flowers would be perfect. This is a great time of year to get inexpensive potted flowers from your local nursery. Look for those things you can get in flats of 6 for like 2-3 dollars. Then instead of the expense of repotting them in pretty pots, simple tie wide ribbon around each individual pot with a pretty bow. If you want, you could insert popsicle stick crosses (that you have painted, of course) WALLA....something pretty - that grows - and is relatively inexpensive. When the dinner is over, plant the flowers on the church grounds, or deliver them to your shut-ins.

Seed packets, flower clippings in creative vases (use your imagination, don't spend alot -- if any -- money) plants, clay pots, etc.

Have the children of the church brainstorm ideas too. They are the true growth of your church after all. =D

Flowerpots -- either clay-colored or spay-painted (silver or gold, if you need something elegant). You could fill the pots with dirt or sand and stick candlesticks in the pots, jutting out in at different angles. When I think "grow" I think of flowerpots first. The good thing is, this idea would be very inexpensive to execute. Good Luck!

Hello: I use to do a lot of church lunches. I made these felt flowers that would go around napkins (paper); and plastic ware. If you would like the pattern to make your own for your dinner, let me know. Spring time: buy Spring Colors; Christmas time: make reds, greens, yellow for center of flower. A different idea. stoverminifarm AT yahoo.com

Here's a cheap idea: Get terracotta flower pots, grow grass in them, then insert seed packets that have been attached to picks/sticks. You can make individual ones for place settings (everyone takes one home), or larger ones for centerpieces (everyone takes a packet of seeds home). You could also buy a few potted flowers/shrubs to later plant around the church. One large tree could be the main centerpiece. Hand out envelopes with leaves stamped on them for individual donations. Whenever someone makes a donation, write their name on a leaf and attach it to the tree. At the end of the dinner, have everyone attend the planting of the tree in the churchyard (symbolic gesture) where future generations could watch it grow. Another idea would be to give flower bulbs as favors. This sounds like it will be a fun project to work on. Have a good time with it!

The potted plants are a great idea, but I would see if I could find small flower picks of churches to insert in the pot. This would kind of bring the theme back to the church. Maybe a shop that sells cake decorating supplies would have small churches.
