beautiful blue bridal bash AND homemade chewy granola recipe

As crazy as it is, I have a niece getting married next month- a niece! I am getting older it is true.  But all that aside, we had so much fun putting together a fun and creative bridal shower for her. My mother was a great overseer and Michelle made some wonderful cupcakes while my other sister Heidi (who is our party guru), sent some fabulous deco and creativity to the mix. I made some food and did an interview with the groom-to-be which we showed at the party.  I thought I would share some of the fun.
These were yogurt, granola parfaits made with greek yogurt, banana, blueberry, and my own homemade chewy granola. The cute little flute glasses and labels come from Heidi.  She sent so many darling things.
I did make this granola at 5 am this morning and sad to say did not write down the measurements, but I will do my best to give you an idea.
1 1/2 C oats
1 C leftover cooked red quinoa 
1/2 - 3/4 C each pumpkin seeds, pecans, dried cherries and raisins
1/4 C sesame seeds
Lay out on a cookie sheet with parchment (my friend), and cook at 350* for 20-30 min or so. Longer if you like crunchy
1/4 C coconut oil melted 
enough maple syrup and honey to make it pretty wet (sorry not sure, maybe 1 C together)
Other fun items
