A Baby Shower

Some small silver baby spoons tied up with pink ribbon...

Mini caesar salads served in toast bowls...

A big white basket filled to overflowing with wild flowers picked fresh from our field...


A cake of diapers made up all satiny and pink and topped with a cute little carriage...


Egg salad and chicken salad served on flaky butter croissants and served in pretty white bowls...



Handmade favors of Sandalwood and Cinnamon hand lotion dolled up in quilted crystal mason jars...


Pretty white basket to hold the pink napkins...


Our table setting. Glass appetizer plates and tea cups that I've been collecting over the last year. When found in thrift stores, they are actually cheaper than buying paper plates. Plus, they can be reused.


Chocolate truffles found their home on a cake pedestal plate. All dressed up in walnuts.

Everyday veggie pizza looks even more appetizing when sliced and placed on a white platter. Paper doilies placed between layers of pizza make this dish look even prettier...


And, of course, wonderful family and friends to make the occasion extra special...

What a fun baby shower. Looks like everyone had a great time. I just looked at more of your sister's house. I am in love with her porch. She has a great way of decorating and putting things together.

Hey again! I love the blog-to-blog communicating.
Anyhow, you're right, Adam did go to GCC... he started out Biology, but switched to Finance. Now that he's in dental school, I think he wishes he'd stayed in the Sciences, though- haha! :)
