Meeting Review: Our MOPS Christmas Party

Our Dec 18 meeting was our MOPS Christmas Party! Thanks to all the members and Mentor Moms for providing the abundant brunch (check out Christin’s recipe for her Pumpkin Trifle).

The room was festive and colorful, with unique table designs, a huge brunch buffet, a pile of gift-wrapped ornaments for our annual ornament exchange, two tables of raffle prizes, and a photo booth. We’re sharing a peak at everything here!

First, we set the tone with Christmas music. We chose the 2-CD set WOW Christmas (Blue), Deluxe Edition – By: Various Artists – 36 Top Christian Artists and Holiday Songs.

Table Decorations

The discussion groups decorated their tables for Christmas based on their group color. Aren’t they beautiful? We’re lucky to have so many creative moms in our group!

Nativity Craft

Paula kicked off the meeting by demonstrating this printable nativity craft for the moms to try at home with their children. (For an easier option, take a look at this one-page printable nativity craft).

A highlight of our Christmas events is always our annual ornament exchange. There were a lot more personalized MOPS ornaments making the rounds this year!Christmas RafflePhoto by Colleen Hazlehurst
