Christian women’s groups often host banquets to gather members together for reflection on their mission or for an evening of fellowship. Planning a banquet with a Bible-based theme, such as the fruits of God’s spirit, tranquility, togetherness, love or strength, can bring an event together and create a lasting impression.
Water is used in the Bible to represent many things, but most often for healing and restoration. Use a portable free-standing waterfall to add a water element. The soothing sound of water as it pours over rocks coupled with soothing music lends a sense of tranquility.
Clusters of grapes can represent togetherness. Tea served before dinner, with its blends of spices and different aromas, can symbolize the goodness that can come about when differences unite for a mutual purpose. Unity and goodness are among foundations of the Christian faith.
Easels displaying large portraits of faithful women in the Bible are a gentle remind of woman's role in Christianity. Tables decorated with lavender-colored table clothes and centerpieces consisting of large glass bowls filled with floating flowers and candles can represent femininity. A small gift of a personal devotional at each place setting can keep the theme of Christianity at the forefront.
The butterfly often represents rebirth, reinvention and strength. Christians need strength to avoid temptation. Butterflies can be used to represent the Christian principle of being "born again".
