For part of our dinner, we had a twelve fruit salad, representing the 12 fruits of the Holy Spirit. Here's where I got the idea, although we just had the fruit, no dressing on it. I thought I had a kiwi, and I forgot about the can of pineapple in the pantry... so I was two fruits short. I ended up throwing in some raisins and dried cranberries to get to 12, ha ha!
Here are our cupcakes, like we had last year. There are 13 of them - representing the 12 apostles and Mary (which is why there is a blue cupcake at the top). Each one has a candle so that when lit, it depicts the tongues of fire that came to rest above each of their heads.
We hung up our doves again this year... if you care to see each ornament up close, you can click on the link to last year above this photo. The girls and I also colored some Pentecost pictures which we hung on the china cabinet. Caroline cut hers out and glued it to red paper. She later colored a dove picture just like Cecilia did... after Pentecost. You can see in this photo that our priest is in his red vestments.
