Crazy Little Thing Called Love


Last Friday was our formal Valentines Dinner for our ward. I'm on the activities committee and this event was huge. We wanted a classy, glam, retro-y feel to the evening and we even got the Voo Doo Orchestra to come and play for us! The evening was all about romance, but it was also a fundraiser for the YW in our ward. I designed the posters for the event and our turn out was beyond what we expected.

We spent most of the morning on Friday decorating the Church to make it look fancy. I think we succeeded! People lent their China and silverware and goblets...it looked really pretty. My favorite part? The lights draped across the ceiling. Brilliant!


They asked me to sing 'At Last' with the orchestra, who turns down an opportunity like that? I got to wear my red 40's dress and Mindi did my hair - how dreamy are those flowers? The orchestra sounded amazing. It's made up of kids 18 and younger and they sound like seasoned professionals. It was a blast singing with a big band behind me! I must do that again...


It was a smash hit! It was a lot of work but we totally pulled it off. Luckily we don't have another event to plan until July, I'm going to need that much time to recover. Wink!
