Cooking Demonstration by a local chef in your home or at the restaurant.
tasting party (maybe a local winery
would hold this event?)
We recently held a luncheon. I had purchased hand woven coasters from a nearby craft place. Not very expensive either..I also invited 3 volunteers to come up and not let them know what I was going to do. After all three ladies came up on the dance floor, I pulled out three hoola hoops from behind the bar and had a hoola hoop contest while the kareoke guy played Chubby Checker and the twist..The girls were really good sports and I gave each one a red hat pin for their fun effort...Prior to this, I always like to read something funny and interesting while the girls are still having dessert and coffee. This year it was Andy Rooney's "Why older chicks rule" That was a real hoot.
"Just Desserts" Birthday Party We celebrated everyone's birthday and we had just desserts and coffee, tea, etc. Everyone brought a present all wrapped up for a gift exchange - all of the gifts were a tea cup and saucer (not coffee cup) so we all got the same thing. Lots of fun.
We love to have a pajama breakfast at a local restaurant. The look on the other customers' faces are priceless. Have everyone bring a teddy bear or dolly to share their breakfast with them.

Some ideas from the RHS QMB:
While we were eating we drew a name of one of the ladies present from a bowl and was told not to let anyone know who's name we had. After we got our name, we were told to look at all of the ladies present and especially at the lady who's name was on the paper we had drawn. We were to remember what this lady was wearing, the kind of hat she had on and anything that would identify this lady.
After we ate, we were given a plain sheet of paper and were told to use the crayons, markers and colored pencils to draw a picture of the lady who's name we had drawn from the bowl the best we could.
When everyone finished, the pictures were taken and then shown to us one at a time. The pictures were numbered and we had to guess who each picture was. If each lady guessed who she was and was able to guess who drew her, they both won a prize. A prize was also given to the lady that guessed the most correct.
It was so funny to see how others see us. Some drew stick ladies and we had some really good artist in our Chapter.
All of the ladies had been asked to please wear a hat at this event and not a bow or headband and dress-up fancy for this dinner. The room was full of beautiful shades of purple, lavender, red and pink. Every lady present in our Chapter had on a beautiful hat.
We had 20 Chapter members present, 1 visitor (that is a potential member), 2 hatters from Spartanburg and 5 young ladies (maybe future hatters) that have help us with our Chapter.
As our meal was being served, we shared some info about our '1st Loves' and our '1st Kisses'. We found out some interesting things about our ladies. The '1st Kisses' brought back memories of Drive-in Movies, kisses on school buses, kisses while laying on the hood of a car, goodnight kisses at the door and a kiss while on a ferris wheel.
After our meal, announcements were being made when a little old gray haired lady on a walker entered our room yelling, "I'm looking for American Idol, I want to try out for Idol, I want to meet Simon". This lady was told she was in the wrong room. We told her this was a RHS dinner. The lady said, "I'll sing for you anyway". Her name was "Mozella" and she sung a song about getting old and needing aspirins and Depends. It wasn't long until everyone realized this was our member Mandy Hopkins. She did a great job as Mozella and had us all laughing. Thank you, Mandy.
While Mandy changed her clothes, we all tried to remember some happy and sad love songs. We were given a sheet of paper with VALENTINE printed down the side and we had to think of as many love songs as we could that began with each letter. It's hard to think of love songs that began with 'V' and 'E'. We were timed too. Heather Whitten thought of 11 songs and Jane Dyar thought of 8.
It was now time for our speaker, Tica Tallent. She is a personal shopper at Belk's. She shared some funny stories about some unnamed customers she has had in the past. She also gave us tips on how to rid our closets of things we don't use. Tica ended with music and all the ladies standing and clapping to the music.
For our game we were given an index card and told to make a sentence, question or statement using our name and all the words in the sentence we made had to begin with the letter of our name. Examples below.
Donna doesn't do dishes.
Anne ate apples.
Sue smiles sometimes.
This was fun to hear what the ladies came up with. A prize was given to the lady with the most
