Color:  any but maybe something cheery and bright

Use all type of aprons. Gather them from your ladies group, hit the thrift shops, etc. 

Use all type of aprons. Gather them from your ladies group, hit the thrift shops, etc. Don't forget to check out ebay.

Drape aprons around the room over chairs, tables, etc.

Use things that give you feelings of "home", such as mason jars, small baskets of clothespins, old appliances such as old irons, baskets of flowers, vintage linens, etc.

Mason Jars filled with flowers.


Apron Pockets:

Pin several items to an apron and hanging out pockets for someone to wear at the beginning of your function.  Make sure she walks around where everyone can see her.

After several minutes have her leave and take off the apron.  See who can remember the most items pinned to the apron.

For a Mother's Day event, use things like a diaper, dishtowel, hanky, small receiving blanket, pacifier, kid's hat, socks, etc. Tie a few "loud" things on her, like rattles, or bells just for fun!

Door Prize Tips

Just for Fun

Have everyone wear an apron. Give prizes for the most unique, most colorful, the most worn, etc.

Have ladies bring in aprons that have a "history" to them, such as a grandmothers, mothers, etc.  Have a sharing time.

For the programs, cut out an apron shape out of colorful cardstock paper and glue lace or ribbon on them for the ties.

Have a Vintage Apron fashion show.  Have some of your ladies model some vintage aprons.  They are so detailed and beautiful so be sure to point out all the wonderful details in your show "script".

Have embellishments such ribbons, buttons, ric-rack, etc. to decorate plain purchased aprons as a craft project.

Work on an apron sewing project as a group.  Make a few aprons for your church kitchen or for your nursery workers.

This is a great theme to have a recipe swap, so let you ladies know ahead of time to bring in a recipe.  Be specific if you want, such as for pies, main dishes, etc.

A great theme also for having a homemade cookie swap

Have a few of your best bakers make cakes for your event and have an old fashioned Cake Walk.  If you are working on raising money for a specific project, have your ladies "donate" a few dollars to participate in the walk

Food and Serving

Have any ladies that are serving, wear aprons.
