He’s easy to spot, he has on a white jacket!
His older sister was an altar server for the ceremony which made it even more special.
The days before were spent baking and wrapping.
40 loaves of Irish Soda Bread and Chocolate Pound Cake for the guests to take home.
Here they are wrapped, tagged and ready to go.
To make it easier for the guests to make their selection, the blue is chocolate, white, Irish Soda Bread.
360 Chocolate chip cookies were made and bagged and bowed.
Candy Bags for the children…
The teens got large candy bars.
I bought pots of white New Guinea impatiens from the Jamesport Farm . Due to the cold weather we had this Spring, they weren’t as big or as full of blooms as they should have been.
So…I added to them with white mums and baby’s breath.
I added a white bow with a blue “S” for Seamus, and that was it!
So much more reasonable than cut flower centerpieces, and one guest from each table got to take home a pretty plant to enjoy all summer, rather than for a week!
Here’s how they looked on the tables at the country club for the Communion Luncheon. The tablecloths were beige, my friend said they looked pink on her computer.
I told dh to get ONE bunch of mums at Sam’s Club, guess what!
He got 3! I have MANY flowers left over.
Made a little basket for the cake table. (My sister had brought the basket with an arrangement the last time she was here, so I got to give it back to her, filled with flowers after the luncheon )
We were lucky with the weather, cocktails and appy’s were served on the porch, and the children could let off some steam after sitting still in Church.
The entertainment for the party was a Lady Magician.
She was fabulous! Look at these faces as they watched…
one brave soul go under the knife!
No one was harmed!
Everyone enjoyed the beautiful lunch that was served.
I have 2 years to get ready for #4’s First Communion! But next year there will be a Confirmation and graduation. And next month is Eamon’s 2nd Bday. Bring on the balloons.
Don’t forget the Challenge Wed. The subject is Wedding China or a formal pattern passed on to you by your mom, aunt, gma, etc. So no Dollar Store dishes like so many of us love to work into the table, lol!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
