A few weekends ago, I hosted a family friendly baby shower with a woodland theme for our friends Mike and Kumi. My friends Veronica and Cristina cohosted and helped a ton with the decor, food, preparations, and photography. Kids were invited too, so we tried to make sure we had foods that men, kids, and the ladies would all enjoy. Since it is fall, we tried to make everything fit into the fall woodland theme, and tried to make sure we added enough pinks and yellows because they were having a baby girl. I split this post into two parts, one covering the food, two covering decorations and activities.
Part 1 - The Food
|Owl cheese ball with crackers, apples, and carrots. Cristina was trying to make it look like an acorn, and it looked more like an owl. I like the owl even better!|
|Tomato mozerella toadstools. Instead of using mozerella cheese sticks for the base, I used fresh mozerella and tomatoes from my garden. The green moss is pesto. Yum!|
We also had sausage cheese balls and veggies with dip set out on tables, but I didn't get a picture of those.
|The Dessert Table|
|Homemade Apple Pie made by Veronica|
|Carrot Cake Birds Nest Cupcakes with M&M Eggs|
|Mushroom Cupcakes (Vanilaa Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting)|
|Homemade Marshmallow Kebabs dipped in Chocolate and graham cracker crumbs (made by Veronica)|
