Easy Party Food Ideas for All Saints’ Day- Downloadable Labels Included!

In an effort to make some easy snacks for our All Saints’ Day party, I’ve been brainstorming ways to make every day food into cute Saint food. I did this a few years ago by attaching holy cards to bowls of food, such as a St. Francis holy card (Patron saint of animals) on a bowl of animal crackers.

This year I decided to take that a step further by making these free printable saint labels! Here are the ones I made:

“St. Isidore’s Pumpkin Patch”- St. Isidore the Farmer is the
perfect saint to use for bringing in pumpkins! I used pumpkin shaped
candy corns, but any pumpkin treat could go with this label.
“Saintly Halos”- I paired this tag with Funyuns, but a healthier
alternative would be to serve some pretty pineapple rings.
“St. Francis’ Friends”- aka, animal crackers. This would also be
cute served with Puppy Chow which is Y-U-M-M-Y!

 

“St. Nicholas Treats”- I kept this one generic on purpose.
That way you can either serve candy canes, or chocolate coins.



“St. Bernadette’s Firewood”- Use with pretzel sticks or pretzel rods.
St. Bernadette was out collecting firewood the first time Our Lady
of Lourdes appeared to her. It would be cute to put them in a basket.

“Tonsure Treats”- This haircut is most well known on the
Franciscans. Think St. Francis of Assisi and St. Anthony. Pair this
label with mini chocolate doughnuts, or a chocolate bunt cake.

 

“St. James’ Fish- Fresh from the Sea of Galilee!”
The Typo is now fixed on the downloadable version. Yay!
Pair this label with these easy fish in net snacks, or simply
use this label with Goldfish Crackers or Swedish Gummy Fish.
“Saintly Stigmata Sandwiches”- Make strawberry jelly
sandwiches. Cut them out with a hand-shaped cookie cutter,
and make a hole in the top so the jelly shows through.

 

“St. Cecilia’s Musical Keys”- Just lay out cookies like piano keys. I
used small wafer cookies and squares of chocolate Hershey bars. If
you use larger wafer cookies, I would suggest mini Kit-Kat bars for
the black keys. By the way, this is the second use 
I’ve found for this plate my husband said I would never use. ;-)
“St. Ambrose’s Honey-Tongued Treats”- I paired this with
Bit-O-Honey candies, but you could also use honey buns,
honey comb cereal, or anything honey or bee related.

 

“Dr. Gianna’s Saintly Soda”- These are for Dr. Pepper!
Ya’ll knew Saint Gianna was a Doctor, right? You can print a
label for a 2 liter bottle, or individual labels for the small 7.5 ounce
cans by visiting my post about Saintly Soda.

I wasn’t able to take pictures of everything, but here are a few
more ideas that come with free printable labels:

“Saint Juan Diego’s Salsa Guadalupe!”- I was torn between this
or Guadalupe Guacamole… but I don’t like guacamole.

 

“Mother Teresa Chips”- This label is supposed to go with blue
corn chips. Couldn’t decide if these were too much of a stretch or not,
but the label is there if you want it.
“St. Gabriel’s Trumpets”- a label for bugles.
Might I suggest chocolate peanut butter bugles? Yum!
“St. Therese’s Little Flowers”- Use flower shaped butter cookies.
I really was going to take a picture of this, but my grocery store
was all out. How weird is that?

 

Now you’re ready to download the labels and bring some cute food to an All Saints’ Day Party! If you’re throwing an All Saints’ Day party, you can ask those who come to sign up to bring the foods in this post, then have the labels ready when they get to your house.

Print the labels onto card-stock, cut them out, and fold in half on the line. They can stand on your platters or tables like place cards.

You can’t imagine the amount of ideas I’ve had running through my head for this post, and as I grocery shopped today. The rest of my ideas will have to wait until next year!

    Hi Lacy,
    Catholic Icing is monopolizing my All Saints Day list of links…but in a good way. =) You just have so many great (and thorough!) posts on all aspects of All Saints Day!
    I hope you check it out
    http://www.equippingcatholicfamilies.com/2011/10/links-of-lightbulbs-3.html

  2. You had me at “saintly stigmata sandwiches,” but then even more so with the Dr Gianna’s! I love St Gianna! :) Thanks for making my day!

  3. Thank you so much for the clever ideas. These ideas have triggered even more brainstorming ideas. What a fun way to teach about the saints through the year too.

  4. We are a cluster of five churches: Immaculate Conception, St. John, St. Michael, St. Patrick, and St. Paul. I am using your food idea to learn about the saints. How did you arrive at the food suggestions and do you have any suggestios for these five?

  5. I can not download the prinables for all Saints food.

    • Looking into this and will be back with you shortly!

    • Ok, these are on my old system and I will have to pull the files from my old computer to fix this. Check back tomorrow- I’ll have the links working by then. Thanks for the heads-up! :-)

  6. I am going to have each of my kids bring one of the ideas for our “Saints” party on First Friday! This is gonna be so fun! Not sure if I will enjoy it more or if the children will! You rock, Lacy!! Why am I not this creative?? :)

  7. Hi!
    This such a great idea to share with everyone :-)
    I was wondering if it would be possible to download a page with the same image printed multiple times?
    Since we are not permitted to have a party with food in the classroom I plan to bring a treat bag for each of my religious school students to take home and wanted to include the tag in the bags. My favorites are St. James and St. Isidore.

    Thank you for sharing!
    Debra

  8. This is SO great! My second son, John, was born on All Saint’s Day, so I was searching Pinterest for a saintly birthday treat for his class. Since it’s the day after Halloween (always, of course), I was hoping for some not-so-sugary options. This is going to be so much fun!!
    THANK YOU!!
