Relief Society Garden Party

Some of the nicest women in the whole wide world
I keep forgetting to post these photos from our Relief Society Garden Party Social from last month! It was a great evening spent with our sisters, held at Evangeline's home.

More of the nicest women in the world
As you can see, the party was very well attended.

We have some terrific sisters in our ward!

Even more of the nicest women in the world!
We're lucky to have these opportunities to get to know one another better.

Wait!  There's even more! 
As you can see, we have a wide range of ages in our group.  That always makes the conversation much more interesting.

There was a large refreshment table.

And a display of crafts.

This is Evangeline (below).  We work together in the Music Department of our ward.  I think she's great. She is very conscientious and works very hard in her calling.  It was nice of her to volunteer her lovely home for this event.

I love the cupcake tree (below).  I feel like a need one... complete with cupcakes.... right about now...

There was lemonade and punch too.
Sister Pendleton and Susie
Susie took all these pictures for me to share.  (Thanks, Susie!)

The table decorations were really sweet.  Look at this collection of fun centerpieces:

Hedgehog candle holders

I love hedgehogs.  My Dad had one living in his garden hedge in England. They are adorable.  Hedgehog tea light holders (above) are adorable, too.

These butterfly tea light holders (below) are lovely as well.

Aren't the snails cute (below)?  (Not so much in real life, where they can be rather slimy, but their metal counterparts are nice!)

A fun time was had by all!  The women of the Pickering Ward Relief Society are the best and nicest ladies you will ever meet.  (I think I already said that a few times...)  If you live in Whittier, you are always welcome to join us!
