I am in charge of pulling together a brunch for the elderly ladies at our church to be held May 2nd. We would like a spring theme, but we need ideas on inexpensive favors to set at each seat and decorating ideas for tables, centerpieces, etc.
I would love to come up with a cute saying like I have seen on this site for mother's day, "Mother's bloom where they are planted" or birthday "Hope we can all live to be as old as Aunt Bee". But maybe centered on a Bible verse? We hope to have this become an annual event, but this is the first time we have attempted it.

I always love incorporating seed packets into any gathering/party/celebration that coincides with spring. I've also used packs/flats of impatiens/pansies which can be easily transplanted & separated into almost anything that can hold dirt. Recycled yogurt cups work great, & if you have kids/youth group, they can paint or decorate them, or even just help cover them with foil (after Easter sales are great times to find pastel colors for just about any 'craft').
I need to send out an e-mail to several ladies at church regarding a brunch. I'm not sure how to start with the e-mail can someone help me please. I also need ideas for food.
There should be a theme for this party or brunch and you could start out with the thing with some clipart on your email. Suggestions for the menu could be sausage Crescent squares, barbecue cocktail weenies, fluffy fruit salads muffin ,Donuts, breakfast casseroles, biscuits and ham, gravy and biscuit, fruit platters, scones with lemon curd, clotted cream. The brunch can be served buffet-style. There should be a table for beverages hot coffee,juices hot tea, hot chocolate.
Is it a particular occassion for the brunch? In the email invite, mention the reason and of course the time and place. Will it be at church? Do you have a kitchen to cook in? If not, plan your menu around foods that can be kept cold. Best wishes!
