First Communion Desserts

My daughter made her first communion this weekend and we celebrated with my family and another wonderful family!  We incorporated a little Cinco De Mayo into the dinner celebration and had a taco bar.  Since we had to set up quickly after church, we didn’t get many great pictures but I did want to share a couple of treats that we enjoyed.

One of the appetizers that we served were Individual 7 Layer Dips.  This is great and you don’t have to worry about double dipping 🙂

For dessert, we stayed with the religious theme.  My sweet friend made two types of desserts.  If you are more angelic, you got to enjoy the Strawberry “Angel” Food Delight and for those who are a little on the devilish side there was “Devilishly” Delicious Chocolate Delight.


It was a such a wonderful and special day and we enjoyed spending it with our family and friends!

Spring Baptism Lunch

I stumbled upon this Spring Baptism celebration from Pink Parsley and thought that it was very bright and cheerful.  Be sure to check out some of the tasty recipes from this party and other great posts.

Pink and Gray Chevron Baptism

This gorgeous baptism was sent in from Sofia in Mexico.  I love the wonderful colors of pink and gray that were used in this special celebration!

Sofia shared that her family lives in Mexico, where a Baptism is an important religious event but it is also regarded as an opportunity to celebrate with family and friends.  It is a tradition in Mexico that after the baptism ceremony you celebrate with a brunch or lunch party.  Sofia and her mom, who runs a small business in Mexico making dessert tables and candy bars, did all of the design for this celebration.  She was lucky enough to have a wonderful mom who made ALL of the goodies on the dessert table and the favors.  Sofia is a huge fan of chevron stripes so that was the starting point for her inspiration. They used her milkglass collection for the beautiful centerpieces.  The straws, chevron striped favor bags, and pink favor boxes are from

What a wonderful fiesta for a special girl!
