Charlotte just posted pictures from their 5th Good Shepherd's Garden Party.  You can click on over to Waltzing Matilda to see all of her pictures, including her darling Owl Cake and these beautiful Roses and Lilies!

This year, I ended up making tea sandwiches for our Roses and Lilies and a fun fruit platter for the Palm Tree!   You can see the rest of our pictures over at Shower of Roses.

Now it's your turn!  How did you and your family celebrate the fifth 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.  We'd also love to see any food related posts for Mother's Day or the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima!
