Easy Symbolic Party Food For All Saints’ Day

I am so excited to present to you today these adorable Saint food labels for turning simple foods into Saint symbols for your All Saints’ Day party! The Saint food labels let you turn read to eat food into a learning tool and a cute party food without you needing to cook, create labels, or even explain what your food means. *smile* What a fun and easy way to teach your children about the faith! These are the perfect way to celebrate at home or in a group. 

These can provide a perfect avenue for having a simple celebration at home while social distancing. I know a lot of parish events are sadly canceled this year out of safety concerns, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate All Saints’ Day. 

This whole pack, including 18 different symbolic Saint food labels, is now available to download for just $6! This is a flash sale that only goes through Sunday of this week (October 25!!!) and then the price is going up to $8 for the set! So be sure to download yours now so you don’t miss out.

Note: I used to have a set of very simple Saint food labels here, which I have now discontinued and replaced with these new ones. Almost everything that was available in the old pack is now available here in a much more adorable format along with some new fun Saint symbols!

These adorable Saint food labels easily assemble to stand proudly next to their food symbol holding a sign explaining what it is! All of the Saint food labels are included in black and white outline and also in full color. If you just want to use them as a table decoration, you can print them in color and assemble– so easy! 

Make Them As A Craft

If you want the kids to make a these themselves as a pre-party craft, print them in black and white and color as desired with crayons, colored pencils, or even watercolor paints. For easy cutting, just cut around the halos only!

Then roll them into a tube and fix in the back with staples or tape.

That’s it! No drying time or anything!

These Saint food labels are designed to pair with easy kid foods to make celebrating the Saints easier than ever! Each Saint pairs with a symbol that is a part of their Saint story.

Make All Saints’ Day Goody Bags!

Designed with social distancing in mind, these Saint symbols are also perfect for making little treat bags to give out to your RE class, neighbors, family, or anyone! You can even hand them out to your non-Catholic friends as an evangelization opportunity. 

I am so in love with these little Saint goody bags that they might be my favorite part of all of it. What a fun way to help spread the faith and throw in a little education about the Saints along the way!

Print the labels for the bags, cut them out, and fold on the line. Place them at the top of the sandwich bags and staple in place. The back of the labels include descriptions and explanations for the Saint symbols they find inside. So fun!

Saints With Their Symbolic Snacks

“Mary Magdalene’s Spice Tea”– Since she showed up on Easter morning
with spices to prepare Jesus’ body, a spice tea is a perfect symbol for her!
Plus, this is the perfect addition to your Saint themed tea party. 
 
“Saints Perpetua And Felicity, Always Together”– These Saints
were known for being martyrs together, and were embracing each other at
the moment of their beheading. Because they always go together, I symbolized
them with a Twix bar, which always has 2. 
 
“Saintly Halos”– I paired this tag with mandarin “halos”. Alternative ideas
could include pineapple rings or peach rings.
 
 
“Saint John The Baptists’ Crawly Treats”– In the bible, St. John the Baptist
is known for eating locusts and wild honey. We made him some “crawly treats”
that included gummy worms and gummy frogs!
 
 
“St. Francis’ Friends”– aka, animal crackers.
 

 

“St. Nicholas Treats”– I kept this one generic on purpose.
That way you can either serve candy canes, or chocolate coins, or even peppermints.
Or whatever Christmas candy you have leftover from last year.
 
“St. Elizabeth’s Bread”– When St. Elizabeth was secretly bringing bread
to the less fortunate and was almost caught, a miracle occurred and the bread
appeared as roses! This sign is perfect to pair with sandwiches or 
sandwich bread for your party!
 

“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. 

 

“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. Raphael’s Fish”
In the bible, the archangel tells Tobias to catch a fish
so they can use it to help heal people.
Pair 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”– The patroness of musicians.
Just lay out wafer cookies like piano keys and add squares of
chocolate Hershey bars or Kit Kat bars for the black keys. 

 

“St. Ambrose’s Honey-Tongued Treats”– I paired this with
honey buns, but you could also use bit o honey candy,
honey comb cereal, or anything honey or bee related including actual honey!
 
 
“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 produce could go with this label,
including a healthy veggie tray! 
 
“St. Lucy’s Eyeballs”– St. Lucy is often dipicted with her eyeballs on a plate.
This time of year it’s easy to find eyeball shaped chocolates or candies. 
I was able to find some gumballs. 

“Saint Juan Diego’s Roses”– Because Our Lady of Guadalupe gave
roses to Juan Diego, you can use roses as your centerpiece and display
them with him. Alternately, you can have rose tea, cookies,
turkish delights, rose marzipan candy, or anything else roses.
 
 
“St. Therese’s Little Flowers”– Use flower shaped butter cookies.
 
“St. Kateri’s Turtle Treats”– I paired this with
turtle candies since St. Kateri’s adopted father was
the chief of the Turtle Clan.
 
 

Also, these same labels can be used to make Saint-themed guessing jars!

Comments

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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! 🙂

  5. 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?? 🙂

  6. 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

  7. 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!!

  8. Lindsay Sills says

    Could you wipe up a Guadalope Guacamole and share?!?! We would love to have that for the upcoming feast day!

  9. This is amazing! I am going to throw a party with my Religion students!

  10. These are wonderful! Downloaded mine last night and can’t wait to print them! The treat bags…PERFECT!!
