Last weekend, I helped host a baby shower for my sister-in-law, Molly. She’s actually the reason that I know my husband as I was friends with her in college before I met Francis. Molly is expecting her first child in March, a little baby girl, and I couldn’t be more excited to meet my FIFTH niece.
The theme of her baby shower was pink and yellow and rubber dickies. We tried to make ‘baby food’ as in miniature foods and make a lot of red/pink and yellow foods. It was a ‘brunch’ shower so there weren’t too many ‘heavy’ foods.
We also decorated with pink and yellow table clothes, pink and yellow tye-dye onsies and pink and yellow rubber ducky center pieces. Overall, I think this first shower that I’ve ever hosted was a great success! Everyone seemed to really love the food and thought the decorations were adorable.
As favors, we gave out pink and yellow duck sugar cookies and little boxes of homemade truffles.We also had small bowls of the homemade truffles on each table so people could help themselves.
The food (recipes will be coming in the following days):
Pizza bites and pizza sauce
Mini mac and cheese bites
Mini blueberry muffins
Mini cranberry muffins
Spinach and artichoke dip in a pumpernickel breadbowl
Leek and Red Pepper mini-quiches
Raspberry cream puffs
Oreo truffles (also in favor boxes)
Peppermint truffles (also in favor boxes)
Cookie dough truffles (also in favor boxes)
Boxes of oreo, peppermint and cookie dough truffles
Pink and yellow duck sugar cookies
And just because I couldn’t resist…my niece Katie looking absolutely adorable at the shower:
