Celebrating Mother Teresa's Feast Day

September 4, 2018

Since Mother Teresa is a relatively new Saint (today is actually the 2 year Anniversary of her canonization!!!)  we wanted to give you some ideas of ways you could celebrate such a beautiful Saint on her September 5th Feast Day!

1) FEAST 

On Feast Days we think it's important to .. well.. feast. I mean, it's in the name.

In honor of St. Teresa of Calcutta, we'll be making some of our favorite Indian food:

 

Homemade Naan Bread & Hummus 

Chicken Tikka Masala (this is a crowd favorite... it's sweet so the kids like it too!)

 

For dessert we're going to have simple cupcakes with white frosting and blue sprinkles in honor of Mother Teresa's signature colors. 

2) DECORATE

Here's a super simple way to make a table look Mother Teresa themed:

Grab any white candle and wrap our free candle wrap printable around the bottom, tape it and you're done!
