After the craziness that was the Black Belt test last Sunday, I had an epic party for my family and kung fu instructors. The theme pushed the limits of my creativity. With the help of many friends, I selected foods and beverages to match each color belt from my black belt program. Check it out:
Beginner belts: Yellow, gold, and orange
Mac and cheese, yellow peppers, pineappel slices, lemonade, Chicken Nuggets, Mozzarella sticks, cheeses, crackers, tropical juice, and orange juice
Intermediate belts: Jade, Green, Purple, and Blue
Jade and Green: Kiwi, guacamole, cucumbers, green peppers, green grapes, spinach balls, spinach knoor dip
Purple: Cupcakes, grapes, jello jigglers
Blue: More cupcakes, more jello, blueberries!
Advanced belts: Red, Brown, Adv. Brown, and Black
Red: Cherries, strawberries, red peppers, raspberries, fruit punch, pepperoni
(red was unsurprisingly my favorite table)
Brown: brownies, chocolate, chocolate milk, cookies
Black: Sarah Bernhardts, Dad D’s famous chocolate ganache cake, and cupcakes.
Wow. The food was amazing. You’ll also notice that for the drinkers, I purchased alcoholic beverages of each color as well. It was truly a remarkable theme and a truly remarkable day.
Special thanks to all those who participated and supported me throughout the black belt endeavor. I’m so lucky to have had the chance to work on this hobby.
