MOPS Date Night Fundraiser.

I am part of a MOPS (Mom's of preschoolers) group, and we had our first fundraiser last night.  Date night with our spouse. The event was held at the church our regular MOPS meetings are at. I had less than a week to put it together.

The challenge was decorating on a very tight budget since it was a fundraiser. Out came previous decorating ideas from past parties I have thrown. Branches were spray painted gold and leaves made out of card-stock attached to the branches. We used old wine corks and Spanish moss as filler for the vases. Mason jars tied with raffia held tea lights. My trusty old window and crate were used on the hors d'oeuvres and wine table. The orange and green bunting from my "Mastering The Art Of French Cooking" dinner party was hung around the room.
