My dear grandson made his First Communion and we gathered with family and friends to celebrate.
Afterwards, my son and dil hosted a beautiful reception at his golf club where both the kids, and adults had a great time. The food was wonderful and included passed hot hors' d's of scallops in bacon, mini sliders, chicken wings and others.
The main course was steak,roast turkey , chicken piccata, penne a la vodka, roasted potatoes, crispy carrot salad, a green salad, cole slaw, and lots of other things. It was all served buffet style and plentiful!
Prior to the big day, there were lots of preparations going on here.
These were to become the centerpieces...
after they were fluffed, and bowed and some baby's breath added. I got the large pots of impatiens at a nursery in Jamesport, NY, Gabrielsen's The price was fabulous for such large plants.
One lucky person at each table got to take the centerpiece home to enjoy all summer.
Each guest was given a choice of breads or pound cake that I baked to take home.
There was Irish Soda, Banana, Banana Choc Chip, Lemon, Lemon Blueberry, and Chocolate Chocolate Chip.
I used Ina's recipe for the Lemon.
I "monogrammed" the bag, bowed and tagged them.
36 full loaves. Phew!
Goody Bags for the kids filled with candy.
Here the kids await their turn for face painting...
While some use their wait time getting some exercise .
That way they could have a bigger piece of whipped cream cake! :)
It may have rained, but it was a beautiful day to us ! May God keep Michael close to His heart.
