Baby Shower Yumminess!

The baby shower for my sister-in-law, Jenny, took place this weekend. It was a lot of work, but she had a great turnout and it was a success. The co-host, Angie, and I made everything ourselves except the veggie tray. Included on the menu were chicken salad croissants, ham and cheese biscuits, spinach dip, veggie tray, meatballs, pesto and sun dried tomato bruschetta, apples w/caramel dipping sauce, chocolate fondue with assorted dippers, chocolate petit fours with rasberry filling - oh and strawberry punch. Everything was DELISH!! Throughout the week I will be posting some recipe tutorials, so come on back and check them out.

So here's the table!




These are the scrumptious petit fours I made, truly a labor of love!


That's me there on the left, my sis-in-law in the middle and the co-host, Angie, who is 6 months pregnant with TWIN BOYS!! I know I look preggers too, but I'm not, just fat!! Where are you Kat with your "no hips" photo rules???? Kat is having an awesome 10 week contest, you better run over there and check it out!! Of course, if I ran over there, I might not need the "no hips" rule, right? I digress.....


For a sweet gift, I bought this photo mat at Target and everyone signed it for the future "Sweet Caroline"!! The baby due date is December 10th, so come back and see copious photos!!!
