We finished up the week with our Good Shepherd's Garden Party on Saturday night and, as usual, it was enjoyed by everyone.
Here are a few pictures from our party:
After seeing their new "Sea" themed tablecloth at Target on Friday, complete with lots of little fishies and octopuses, I just had to get it for our table this week! I also decorated with some Fishing Net (from the dollar store) and Pinwheels (the Pinwheel Straws were from Pier 1 and napkins were also from Target, though purchased and forgotten for last week!).

Since we made Banana Boats during B Week, we decided to try Charlotte's Apple Boats. We had a difficult time getting the pretzels to stay up in the peanut butter (versus the ice cream of our Banana Boats) so we ended up propping them up with some cute pinwheel picks.

In addition to the decorative net on the table, we also had net shaped pretzels!
~ The Fish ~
Snuggles, wearing his new little apron, was my big helper for this Garden Party. He was especially excited about placing the fish on the table and then pointing out (and signing) all the starfish!
It was also super cute to watch him try to make his pinwheel spin. At least the wind, which was coming through the open windows and screen door, helped him out from time to time!
~ The Barbecue ~
Oh my goodness! Thank you Charlotte for sharing your Pulled Barbecue Pork recipe with us! Yummmmm!! I won't be waiting until next year to make it again, that's for sure!
~ The Leviathan ~
The Octopus Cupcakes were a hit, and after the party everyone headed outside with their new bubbles!

~ Our Calendar This Week ~
Sticker Calendar is starting to fill up as we continue to add the symbol for each day!
I can't wait to see everyone else's Garden Parties over at Catholic Cuisine!
