Our Luncheon/Tea to honor both these days will include:
Water :: to signify the Purification of the Virgin Mary
Candlemas Crepes (recipe from Catholic Cuisine) - we'll see if I'm feeling adventurous!
Pretzels :: representing arms crossed in prayer for Simeon
Olives stuffed with cream cheese :: black for Anna's status as a widow, and white for the purity of her soul
St. Blaises Cookies :: a variations of this recipe
Dove shaped sandwiches :: not sure what filling I'll use, but I will cut out said sandwiches with whatever bird shaped cookie cutter I can find in our collection
Fruit :: to round out the meal
Also, I hope to make this creative candle craft found over at JOYfilled Family either on Sunday, or if I'm running behind, maybe Monday with Dom.
I'd like to thank Cottage Blessings and Shower of Roses for their lovely inspiration behind this post. Please check out these links to see how they celebrate Candlemas!
