We had Isaac's First Holy Communion in Italy and then we had one trip after another which brought us to a very overdue party for this monumental event in his life. We had a few families come over for a big meal and a special cake. The inspiration for the cake was, if you can even believe it, not found on Pinterest. It came from the design on our Holy Water font.
|Random and bad picture of our new Holy water font that we bought in Orvieto days before his First Communion. The symbol of an A intertwined with an M is for "Auspice Maria"in Latin which means, "Under the protection of Mary."|
Under the protection of Mary, seemed like the perfect theme for my sweet boy's cake. As usual, I was not as pleased with the results as I had hoped, but I took heart in the knowledge that my kids all really liked it.
We ate outside since it was a beautiful day. Brian grilled chicken, hamburgers, and brats. I made a lasagna, a BLT salad, corn on the cob, watermelon, and had hummus with carrots and chips out before. It was a lot of food, but it was for a lot of kids. It was very relaxing considering I was hosting.
