Spiritual Application

This theme revolves around the verse Psalm 56:8, "...tears in a bottle".

It's all about those cherished memories and how the Lord is there with us for the journey.

Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?  Psalm 56:8

Color:  any color scheme will do but you could do black and white to reflect photos.

Use a lot of photos.

Add in some picture frames.

Photo albums

Scrapbooks (Ask your ladies ahead of time to bring in any they'd like to share.)

Old cameras.

Use some decorative scrapbooking papers on the tables such as under centerpieces.

Photo Arrangement

Make a display with lots of photos. 

If you have some photos of your ladies group from different functions, frame them and use them in the display. 

You could even have your ladies bring in photos of their children and grandchildren ahead of time and place them all in the display.

Photo Collage

Have a poster collage set up on an easel. 

Have your ladies bring in photos of themselves as children ahead of time and let everyone see who can guess who is who. 

Use scrapbooking papers and supplies to make the display eye pleasing.


Photo Guess

As mentioned above under 'Photo Collage', have your ladies guess who is who from childhood photos.
