Our fabulous friends Hannah and Caleb are having a baby girl in…well, anytime here in the next few weeks…so BJ and I hosted a baby shower at our house yesterday. We invited the boys along for this one and provided them with plenty of beer so they were well taken care of in the midst of all the baby fun!
We fired up the grill and made 3 different types of Sliders- Bison, Turkey and Veggie with all the fixin’s. I also made a quinoa salad, fruit skewers, and veggies with hummus. We had plenty of beer (Caleb and BJ are home brewers and beer enthusiasts) as well as Martha’s Strawberry Basil Iced Tea for beverages. For dessert I made Cherry Sherbet in Tuile Bowls also from Martha Stewart. It was delish!
For decor we hung paper lanterns in the carport via some Ashley Ann inspiration. I also made some adorable condiment caddies for rolled silverware and ketchup and mustard. I had small vases of yellow and white flowers and we created an outdoor living room in our backyard with some soft seating. BJ really spiffed up our lawn which gave me a great background to work with.
Great friends, great food and adorable parents-to-be, made this party a great success!
Here are some photos from the festivities.
