On Saturday, June 28, 2014, Victory Ministries International held its 5th annual High Tea event at King’s Court in Port Elizabeth.
The elegant event, which has a different theme each year, was themed “No stress, No fuss.” Excitement was high as ladies began to prepare for the challenging theme, significantly different from last year’s “On the beach” theme.
The “No stress, No fuss” theme meant that hostess table décor had to be 98% disposable and 2% recyclable. This brought about an array of amazing table centre-pieces and showcased jaw-dropping creativity as the delegates thought up ways to make use of household items that they would normally throw away. With 650 ladies in attendance, the table hosts’ hard work and effort certainly did not go unoticed and most of the guests described the event as exciting and inspiring. Prizes were awarded to the best food, best décor, most creative table and the best table and judging was done according to a table number to ensure fairness and impartiality. Hostess Lizette Ingram won the prize for the best table.
Pastor Eunice Liberty shared about how God had spoken to her to bring women together in a special way. Her goal each year is to take the ordinary woman to a place where she begins to experience the extra-ordinary as being ordinary. After witnessing the high level of excellence this year, it is clear that Pastor Eunice has succeeded since many are already looking forward to putting their creativity on display at next years event. It can be said that some women do not believe that they have ability to be creative – a concept that changes once they are involved in an event such as this.
