MOPS centerpieces & banner

MOPS stands for Mother's of Preschoolers. Its a fun group, usually church sponsored, where mommas of young ones can come together to socialize---without their kids interrupting, eat a warm breakfast--without little fingers helping themselves, and discuss the challenges of motherhood. I am going into my fourth year with MOPS and some of my best friends have come from this group.

This year I am helping with hospitality. The budget is modestly modest, but I love a challenge!

I love Michael's, especially when there is a big clearance sale on their dollar items--and a coupon to boot! Between that and my craft room supply I was able to put together some cute decor on a very slim budget.

This years theme is Be You, Bravely. The images are: keys, feathers, & arrows.

The denim flowers were a spin-off from an old flower design. Here I added some sparkly ribbon and pom-pom ribbon (flower center).

Twine-wrapped & feather-topped pens. Cute notebooks as a "welcome to our MOPS group" gift.

And who doesn't love free stuff?
This was made from a bakers cocoa box.
These cute pics go next to our childcare check-in.
