We had a Valentine breakfast to honor our volunteers in February
with the theme “Touching Children’s Hearts.” We decorated the
tables with red and pink tablecloths, lace doily place mats, red
napkins, and red and pink crepe paper. We tied red, pink, and white
balloons to the chairs and sprinkled red-hot heart candies all over
the tables. Our centerpieces were red bags full of heart-shaped
cakes, cookies, pretzels, and chocolates. We arranged these with
red silk carnations and tied them with red, pink, and white
We created place cards with large felt hearts cut out and glued
like pockets onto white and pink card stock. We wrote volunteers’
names on their cards below the phrase, “With Heart-Felt Thanks.” In
the heart pockets, we placed small bath cubes for women and gourmet
chocolate hearts for men.
Our pastor helped us cook and serve breakfast burritos with all
the fixings. We gave each volunteer a booklet full of information
and inspiration, along with a mini clay pot sponged with Valentine
colors and filled with Valentine candies. We also gave each
volunteer a wooden heart pin or wooden heart magnet with our theme.
We finished the morning by closing in prayer and letting our
volunteers know that we love them.
