Seasonal Saturday Supper


Last weekend, my friend Nadia, with others, organised a Women’s Night at Church. It had an autumnal theme. We were welcomed with a choice of two mulled fruit punches or cool elderflower cordial.

The tables had been decorated with pine cones, twigs, berries, and autumn leaves – with hessian runners and slices of logs to add more interest

Leek and stilton, vegetable, chicken, and mushroom – all served with a basket of assorted breads, and fresh butter, and croutons.

Dessert was an astounding array of cakes and puddings. While we drank our coffee, we listened to Dianne, our after dinner speaker. She is a Salvation Army Officer – and told us great stories about her work with the children in Nigeria. Some sad tales, but much laughter too. Everyone enjoyed her enthusiasm and infectious humour. She was an excellent speaker and knew how to keep our attention.

We finished our evening making button craft pictures – the text says There is a right time for everything, Everything on earth has its special season.




Penny had made beautiful oak&acorn brooches- each guest received one as a parting gift.

It was good fun, I met some new people, and really enjoyed myself. And yes, the logs and hessian runners were the same ones we used at Steph’s wedding – and yes I did supply all the buttons for the craftwork! But apart from that, my input was minimal. Each table had a ‘hostess’ and they were the people who had so worked hard to put it all together. Thank you, friends! There were around 40 of us present – including lots of people I didn’t know. Teenagers Rebekah and Sarah were super waitresses, TraceyAnne and Arthur provided a good mix of music [well done A, for being the only man present!]
