Despite my concerns, the lunch went really well last weekend. I even got to spend some time chatting with people rather than constantly running behind the scenes to keep things together.
It was a smaller group than last year but I think we still had a good time.
And people liked the decorations I made. Here are the globes I did up for the tables:
The theme was Passion and so I used red and purple with gold accents as my colours. I got red and purple glass stones and used metallic confetti as an accent. I also made the little flower bundles: three paper roses and some purple silk flowers with the ribbons.
I also did up little scroll holders for the volunteer awards:
I think they turned out as a nice memento. I did up a special award for Nathan because he ended up be dragged along on a fair number of shopping expeditions and bureaucratic stops.
Thanks to everyone at ORWA for helping out and making it a good event. As coordinator, I set the stage but it takes everyone to make it a great time.
