My Epiphany Party

A Belgian friend of the family always hosted an Epiphany party growing up. This year, I continued the tradition.

I set the table with the Magi and baby Jesus from a couple of the Nativity sets, and used the crown rings and the angels from a Harry & David Christmas basket to hold the napkins.

The Menu:
Since the Magi came from the East, I served Indian food.
Hummus & pretzel chips
Rice
Egg Curry
Dahl
Cabbage, Carrots, & Coconut Stirfry
Gaetano D'Aquino 2007
Chocolate Cathedral Bundt Cake (w/ Baby Jesus inside!)

In the spirit of the feast, we had a White Elephant/Yankee Swap. Lots of treasures were exchanged. People also picked their patron saints for the year.


It was a good party.
A really good party.

Hello, nice party, but my comment is not for this post, I did not find an e-mail-address, sorry. But: Please look at www.needlenthread.com (a very nice embroidery-blog) and go to December 31., 2008. Read this amazing story about creating a maniturgia. Can you make a post about this wonderful documentation? Thank you. God bless.
