This past Saturday our friend Cate hosted our baby shower and what a beautiful day it turned out to be! It was sunny, warm and the perfect location. Right on the lake.
We enjoyed a spectacular spread of salads, chips, veggies, dips, and stuffed grape leaves.
We also dug into this bassinet of fruit, complete with an orange baby, that our hostess Cate and friend Abbey created for the party. These proud mamas were so happy to show off their sightly jaundiced baby.
We sipped on Vignette Wine Country Soda (non-alcoholic) which was really delicious. I have had, and really enjoyed, the rose, chardonnay and pinot noir but I think the brut was my favorite. There were also mimosas available, juices, coffee, and Mighty Leaf iced teas.
For dessert and as a parting gift for our shower guests, there were a variety of flavors of macaroons (my new favorite snack) from Pure Sweets. The flavors included The Sphinx (rosewater cardamon), The Poodle (Lemon Lavender), The Elephant(Cashew Butter and Caramelized Nuts),The Owl(salted almond vanilla bean macaroons dipped in organic single-origin dark chocolate) and The Panda (single-origin chocolate chunk macaroons). Pure sweets were really accommodating and every flavor was delicious! You can read my full review of Pure Sweets over on RWT.
Our guests all took turns writing messages to the baby on a chalk board and having their photo taken with it so that we can create a photo guest book for a shower keepsake and to show our baby.
We, and the baby, were spoiled rotten with amazing gifts from all of our friends and family.
We loved everything and are so excited for the baby to arrive so that we can start using everything!
We had a wonderful shower and it flew by so fast! Now we are on to the next step of washing items, organizing the nursery and getting everything ready for baby’s arrival.
