Mother - Son Date Knight

Hey Y'all! We are back from our little Florida vacation and enjoying a not too hectic week in good old Waynesboro {and whats left of the snow - so pretty... now come on spring I am ready for you!}

About a week and a half ago we had our first ever Mother - Son Date "Knight" at Chick-fil-A. It was so much fun! We have had Daddy-Daughter Date Nights in the past and it was long over due for the Mamas and the boys to have a special night of their own.

I had a blast making lots of "Knight" theme decorations and took full advantage of breaking in the sewing machine my sweet Mama gave me for Christmas. Here are a few photos of the decor and the evening...
 Castle Walls

 Conversation Starters for Moms & Sons to spend time talking - the whole point of a date night huh? love them!
We had a IceDream Sundae Bar complete with a Lego Castle of course
 I made Bunting! It was so easy and so simple and I am in love. Pretty sure Baby Girl will have some bunting in her room at some point. Its a great, easy, quick project for left-over scraps of fabric
 My sewing machine and I began a love - hate relationship with burlap during this party planning process. I made 20 of these numbered burlap banners and it took awhile... 
 I feel like they turned out exactly like I wanted them to, and definitely gave a more rustic castle feel to our Chick-fil-A dining room, but it was quite an undertaking for this beginner sewer. 
If you ever come across a need to barrow 20 burlap castle banners, I am your girl, because I am holding on to these babies for a long, long time :)
Our Chick-fil-A Servers... They are so terrific and made the whole "knight" a huge success! Love them! 
We had a balloon twister making all kinda of neat {safe} swords and shields. They were a huge hit!
Bethany keeping everyone organized!
 A few Mamas and their sons... Its so, so wonderful that we get to plan these kind of special Chick-fil-A events. I feel blessed to be part of a company that cares so much about helping people slow down and take advantage of the important things in this crazy busy life!

Pin It!
