Black Belt Test Recap Part IV

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:

Yellow and Gold

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

Gold and Orange

Intermediate belts: Jade, Green, Purple, and Blue

party foods
Jade and Green

Jade and Green: Kiwi, guacamole, cucumbers, green peppers, green grapes, spinach balls, spinach knoor dip

More food!
Purple and Blue

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 and Adv. Brown

Brown: brownies, chocolate, chocolate milk, cookies


Black: ┬áSarah 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.

    I might be more impressed by this than by your black belt.

    Now that you’re a black belt, how many punches will it take to break open a watermelon?
