How Should We Decorate for Girl Talk?
To be honest–that’s completely up to you! Some churches have gone all out and put a bed on the stage, and some have done nothing at all. The good news is that we usually travel with a large banner that’s 8 feet x 10 feet–and has two extra panels that are optional. So if you do nothing, we can use the banner to “hide” the musical instruments that may be on the stage and still give the evening a special feel.
Here are some pictures for inspiration:
Stage with Lots of Decoration
Stage with Smaller Decorative Focal Points
Don’t want to put a bed on the stage? Or maybe you don’t have room for one? No problem at all! Here’s some more inspiration of smaller elements that different churches have used to give it a “lovey” and fun feeling.
The Backdrop Alone Works Fine, Too!
If the decoration is overwhelming, don’t worry! Many churches opt to forego decorating and just use our backdrop. No one knows the difference, and it works fine as well.
What About the Food Tables?
Again, you can go as elaborate or as simple as you want. The pictures below are meant for inspiration or to help you brainstorm, but don’t feel pressure to do anything huge. It’s entirely up to you–and the size and willingness of your team.
We hope that gives you some inspiration!
We’ve done Girl Talk with elaborate desserts and snacks and with simple veggies and dip and store bought brownies. We’ve had stages elaborately decorated and some with nothing at all. But the evenings are all wonderful because it’s the excitement of the women that brings energy to the room.
Do what you have the ability to do, and don’t feel as if you need to reach for the moon. Be in your comfort zone as a church, and we’ll do our best to make the evening a success!
