Usually our garden party takes place on Sunday, but we had a busy weekend on the road. And for good reason. See the little cutie below? My nephew was baptized into the Church yesterday. Praise God!
We had a simple dinner tonight with this week's symbols. The kids loved it, and the food disappeared very quickly! I linked up over at Catholic Cuisine - be sure to check out some other great spreads over there!
The Heaven's Tell God's Glory
Symbols to use: wind, rain, hail, lightening, rainbow, cloud, sun
Quite simple. We laid out our casual tablecloth and added some blue "sky" paper napkins. I had the very hungry kids draw lightening on the napkins for our decoration while they waited.
Simplicity at its best - and perfect after a hot afternoon playing! Ice cold rain water with hail ice cubes.
A carrot and hummus sun as an appetizer.
Windy hair pasta (tossed with some steamed broccoli, olive oil, and dried herbs). Both my husband and Skipper rolled their eyes on this one, but hey, they do not know about long hair and wind!
A fruit rainbow made of strawberries, tangerines, pineapple, kiwi, blueberries served with clouds of whipped cream. Soyatoo makes a whip cream from rice milk that is delicious, but since it is just me that should be dairy-free I opted out of it completely (I say should because I did indulge in a mint chocolate chip flurry this past weekend that I hadn't had for years and years... and well, now, I am paying the price with poor, little Miss Z fussing and fussing. I guess she does not like dairy herself!)
