I think it was Hannibal from The A Team who always used to say, "I love it when a plan comes together!" Well, so do I, baby, so do I.
For a while now, I have been working to put together our annual Evening of Excellence program for the young women of our church youth group. The evening is basically a night to celebrate the achievements and accomplishments they have made throughout the year. Our church has a program called Personal Progress based on 8 different values. It is a wonderful program that helps the girls understand who they are and helps them gain self-esteem through setting and achieving goals.
Each value has a colored assigned to it so our theme for last nights event was Personal Progress Let's Us Color Our World.
Before I show some of the highlights, I want to give credit where credit is due. The idea for the rainbow cake and the printables of the frames for the self-portraits came from One Charming Party. A wonderful website with ideas for some of the most well, charming, parties I have ever seen. Be sure and check it out, I am sure you will be as inspired as I was.
The paint can centerpieces and self-portrait gallery ideas were something I ran across on Sugar Doodle.
Thank heaven for internet! Party planning inspiration is no more than a click away.
Here are some of the hightlights:
Bakerella, but I was pretty happy with the way these turned out.
We had each girl and leader put together a presentation board of one project they had completed during the course of the year. Here is mine.
