diamond in the rough

At church I'm one of the young women's leaders (young women's is basically like Sunday school for girls 12-18 years). This week we had a program called New Beginnings (which happens at the beginning of each year where we talk about the purpose of being in young women's, introduce new girls coming in, and talk about what the theme for the year will be).

This year the theme for the youth is "Come Unto Christ", which I LOVE! For our program we decided to do a "diamonds in the rough"/Tiffany & Co. theme to draw the correlation how each of us is like a diamond in the rough and can be perfected when we draw closer to Christ. It was a lot of fun to put together!
This invitation is now available in my Etsy shop HERE
We used this video in the program to show the girls and this slideshow to use as an overview of personal progress and young women's. Thank you things that are already created by people who have more time than I do. :-)

To go along with our diamonds theme, each girl got a box with black "coal" candy, diamond ring key chain thingy, with this insert:

On the tables I used "Tiffany blue" gift bags with different necklaces coming out and clear plastic diamonds on the table cloth. Apparently the Tiffany & Co. font is a custom designed font that I couldn't find anywhere online, but turns out Baskerville is a pretty close match! Just make the first letter a larger font size than the rest of the word and wah-lah.
