Quinn's Blessing Day

Quinn was blessed this past sunday! After the meeting we gathered at Kara and Kimble's home to eat and be together. Here are some pictures:
Juice bar. I made tags for each different flavor of juice.
Britt made these ham and swiss sams. Talk about decadent. RECIPE HERE.
Our mom put together this rad spread where everyone could make their own yogurt parfaits. It was a hit! Ingredients included: plain yogurt, fresh mixed berries, shaved coconut, chopped pecans, raisins, uncooked irish oats and raw sugar.
I was in charge of putting together the cereal bar. There were three different cereals offered as well as a granola. I placed a bunch of bananas on a cutting board for slicing and had a large pitcher of cold 2% milk at the ready. This cereal bar was a cinch to put together, but had a big impact. The kids loved it.

Mom made apricot bars! Dynamite.
I made this banner the night before the blessing day. I saw the idea on Say Yes To Hoboken and thought it was clever and I'm stoked to be able to use it on other occasions. I used miniature clothespins to attach the chalkboard circles to the string and I like the way it kicked it up a notch. P.S. I found all the stuff to make this at Michael's. 
And one last one of Kara and Quinn, matching noses and all! Aaaaaaaw.
It was a perfect day spent with loved ones. If you have any questions, let's chat in the comments. Thanks for stopping by!
