box dinners















The young men and young women in our ward had a super fun activity last week. The boys had to provide some sort of table for the girls, out of cardboard. The girls brought dinner. The boys set up their tables without the girls knowing which table was theirs. While the boys waited in one room, the girls went to check out the tables and then picked where they wanted to sit for the evening. Tanner and his friend Dallin were paired up for this event. After talking to them, we decided that I would help them create an all pink table because girls love pink, right??? Tanner and Dallin met at our house and we worked on cutting out the flowers, wrapping water bottles, wrapping the utensils and even wrapping See's chocolate bars for the girls. Other tables were decked out as Hawaiian, Under the Sea, camping and even a fun Monopoly table. They were all very creative.






















Tanner and Dallin got to eat with these cute girls(S&A). These girls went all out for dinner. While the other boys were eating LC pizza, KFC and McDonald's, these girls brought tri-tip, potatoes, fruit salad and rolls. YUM!!!





















Everyone agreed that it was such a fun evening. It was fun to see what the boys came up with and created. It was fun to watch them interact with different friends. They ended the evening with some hilarious games and ice cream Sunday's.

What a fantastic idea! Of course, your table was beautiful...and the food sounds fantastic, too. I'll have to pass this idea on to our YW!

What a clever idea! I wish I had gotten this from you a month ago! :) I just found out our presidency is being released this coming Sunday, but I'm going to store this away for another time!

I am so stealing that idea! It is great. Although we have so many more YW than YM, we'll have to work that out.
