Relief Society Birthday Waffle Bar Brunch

Recently, I put together a waffle bar brunch for our Relief Society's birthday party. Waffles are my very favorite food, and it seems I'm not alone in my love for them. The brunch was a ton of fun, really well received, and delicious.

I went with the theme We Will Not Waffle, taken from a quote from from Elder Ballard, "We've got to be so solidly anchored in our testimonies of the gospel of Jesus Christ that, regardless of what may come next, we will not waffle; we will stand firm in our belief..."


With a little inspiration from Burlap and Denim and Young Living Love I pulled together my ideas. 


I had a good time brainstorming ideas for waffle toppings and giving them fun church-related names. We take waffle toppings seriously at our house, so it was great to introduce some women to some new ideas. As I was refilling various bowls, I loved hearing the women ooohing and ahhhing over the offerings. I promised "all the trimmings," and I think it delivered! (Well, other than the couple I forgot at home. Darn.)

The women couldn't get enough of the waffles. The speakers, top picture, were awesome and it was an all around great morning.

I'm excited to share the printables with you! Click here to download all the signs.

  5. I was planning on doing a brunch for our RS birthday party this year and then i found this! Love the idea! I was just wondering what did your speakers speak on? And did you have musical numbers or anything like that? Thanks!

    1. We had the speakers speak on building and strengthening a testimony (we have a lot of new converts and investigators in our ward), showing faith in Christ and enduring to the end. There were several good articles on each of these topics on the youth.lds.org site. We showed a Mormon message between each speaker, but I can't remember which ones we used—there are so many good ones to choose from!
