THEMEFor Sparkle's 4th birthday we had a Mary party and all guests helped us plant a flower in our Mary garden in between crafting and swimming.
The Our Lady of Guadalupe was found at Wal-Mart for $40.00!!!
FOODA sandwich bar was offered for lunch. Pink flower cupcakes were served.
FAVORS & ACTIVITIESThe children/guests were given a clay pot to paint and decorate in between their swim & flower planting time. They also were able to plant a flower that had a Marian significance. In addition, the children were given a pack of gummy worms. Their parents were given a personalized bottle of sparkling cider along with prayers and Marian Garden descriptions.

A Mary Garden Prayer
Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,As our hearts are raised to you in love and thanksgiving through the light, grace, fragrance and symbolism of these pure, blest, transfigured flowers of Our Lady - your direct creations, showing forth and sharing with us your divine goodness, beauty and truth - we commune with you in awe and rapture and pray that we and all our brothers and sisters may be opened to the fullness of the divine love of God and Neighbor, through which we are to transform the fallen world into the culminating earthly Peaceable Kingdom and Paradise, that all may be lifted up resplendent in the eternal New Heaven and New Earth of our Crucified and Risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen
