Head over to Charlotte's blog to see the pictures from her Good Shepherd's Garden Party for Week 3.  I just love the "Sun" Pizza she ended up making!  Isn't it so cute!?!

I also made a substitution for the sun...  I just wasn't up to baking the cute sun cupcakes after making two other cakes last week. However, I wasn't very creative and just used a package of cookies instead of the cupcakes.  :)  You can see our pictures at Shower of Roses.

Charlotte and I have been amazed at all of your creativity as you modify our plans for your own Garden Parties!  Angie, who doesn't blog, emailed us the following pictures to share saying,  "Here are the things I made for the week 3 party. My kids love breakfast dinner, so they were thrilled to have grapefruit "suns", pancake "Clouds" with bacon lightening, sparkling pink lemonade rain, with ice "hail", scrambled eggs "wind", and rainbow fruit kebobs. We finished off with the rice crispie shields for St. George. Thanks for all the great ideas!"

Thank you, Angie, for sharing your beautiful pictures and ideas with all of us!  

Charlotte and I never even considered incorporating breakfast foods (like Angie's above, or Colleen's from Week 2) into our menus!   What a great idea!!

  1. I managed to have a celebration. Praise be to God!

    I may start a day by day celebration since there's the possibility of me going into labor at anytime.

  7. With the First Communion/Confirmation season upon up, it has been a little hectic for us - so we combined several ideas from the past couple weeks for our little party.
