Women's Retreat - Downton Abbey Style

I have just returned from a fabulous Women's retreat and have some fun decorations/gifts that I prepared for the group. I am so happy that I get to use my love of paper-crafting to add special touches to the weekend of teaching & worship with my friends.

One of the things we like to do at our retreat is leave blessing notes for each other. I made this wall of "mailboxes" to resemble the servant's bells in the downstairs of Downton Abbey. It tied in with our theme that all Believers have individual gifts given by the Holy Spirit to be used in service to the whole body.

That's a lot of roses! 85 to be exact. These gifts of tea were placed at each place setting for our formal dinner on Saturday night.
Some ladies went all out on their attire for the evening...

A parting gift of jam all wrapped up pretty.
