Why We Made 70 Pies for Annual Tea

. at . 9 comments

5_doile-tea-magnets-2009The Women’s Ministry team had a FUN time making 70 pies. However, these were big enough to fit into a bottle cap and studded with a magnet.

Giving out gorgeous magnets is expected at our annual tea.  Go here for a look at some of the past years’ favors.

So, I am always on the hunt for ideas.

 “This is what we NEED to make for the tea,” I thought. I saw and bought a fabic pie magnet and showed it to Heidi. Heidi did some research, experimentation and then came up with these beauties.

Each year we say, “Oh, this is the best one yet. How are we going to top it?”  Well, this year really IS the best one yet. What do you think?

If you weren’t able to attend the Tea, you still have a chance to get one. March 15th we’ll be having a bake sale at church. We’ll also be selling our (all church) cookbooks. With every cookbook ($14.99) you’ll receive a free magnet. The proceeds will go towards the women’s retreat June 5-7.

If you went to the Tea, which magnet did you pick and why?

    It was a wonderful event, Theresa. I wish you could have been there too, but your day was kinda full.

    Next year it will be all the more special becasue you’ll be able to attend.

    My daughter took the photos. Guess I should have put that in the post. I’m off to do that now.

    WOW! Between Heidi’s bright ideas, and Elizabeth’s beautiful photography, we look good! That was a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

    They look so real, you’d think they were real pies… That’s until you see the teacup and saucer. Great pics!!!!

    You are all so sweet. I really enjoyed taking the photos. The pies are darling! Great job by everyone who helped.

    To answer Susan’s question, I have a key lime pie, because that is my all time favorite pie. One of these days, I am going to try and adapt it so I can eat it. Good old food allergies.

    Lynette, I want a whole set too. We will be selling them at the bakesale on Sunday. Hint. Hint.

    Lorna, it was fun having you at the pie creation party. Your laugh and funny remarks always add to any “event” you are at. 🙂

    Heidi, I wouldn’t mind eating pie bites. Maybe you can create that recipe for us.

    Elizabeth, I’m up for you adapting the key lime pie recipe. Being your guinea pig would be great and tastey. 🙂

    Mike, Thanks for your visit and comment.
