New Beginnings: Happily Ever After

My poor three year old gets to tag along when I have Young Women's projects.  Here we are getting ready to set up at the church for New Beginnings.  I brought a couple of his trains, so he was content to play.  He even helped bring in a few things.

As the girls walked in, there were rose petals and a rope light walkway into the room.  They each received a crown and program.  Our theme was "Happily Ever After", base on President Uchtdorf's April 2010 talk of the same title.  With a theme like that, we all went a little wild with the pink and princess.

Modest "princess" dresses.  The silver was my senior prom dress and the blue was a winter formal dress.

The front table was covered with "castles" or pictures of LDS temples around the world.

Our dessert table.  My friend spent forever gathering and sewing that pink table skirt.  It turned out beautifully and now she can use it for her party planning business.  Hopefully she is recovered now from working on it for so long.

Pink and white poms

Chocolate dipped marshmallows


Fresh fruit, pink juice, and jewels strewn about the table.

We had a great turnout and our president and bishop gave some wonderful talks about working towards your "happily ever after".  I hope the girls enjoyed it as much as us leaders had putting it all together.
