The Good Shepherd's Garden Party :: Week One

We are celebrating the 50 days of Easter with The Garden of the Good Shepherd and with a weekly Good Shepherd's Garden Party!  The theme and menu for the first week was based on "The Good Shepherd's Pasture."

The Good Shepherd's Pasture Menu Suggestions

Mini Shepherd's Pies
Shepherd’s Crooks
God’s Sheep
Graham Cracker Gates
Ewe and Ram Cupcakes
Lamb’s Wool
Wolf Paw Cookies

First head over to Waltzing Matilda to see pictures from Charlotte's first Good Shepherd's Garden Party!  Aren't her Ram cupcakes adorable?  She let me have a sneak peek at them before attempting to decorate ours.  And be sure to check out her favorite new Easter Decoration!

Then you can click over to my other blog, Shower of Roses, to see pictures from our party.

Now it's your turn!  How did you and your family celebrated this first week of Easter.  We'd love to see pictures and hear about how you modified our Good Shepherd's Garden Party for your family, or incorporated any of our other ideas (whether you choose daily activities or just one party for the week) into your celebration.
