My sister Emily and I threw a baby shower for our little sister Jen. She is due with her first boy in November! Yay, yay, yay! It worked really well though, because I did most of the cooking, and Emily did the decorating. It was also at Emily's lovely house, so she had the added stress of cleaning and hosting. Thanks Emily! This really worked to our strengths which is always nice. It makes the whole process more enjoyable.
Didn't Emily make it look so adorable?
For the food, I found some several children's books which had some yummy food connections.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: Cocktail Meatballs
Blueberries for Sal: Blueberry Muffins
Stone Soup: Thai Curry Butternut Squash Soup and Veal Dumpling Broth with Escarole
Green Eggs and Ham: Guacamole Deviled Eggs from Skinnytaste.com
Everyone Poops: Tootsie Rolls
And I'm totally kicking myself for not getting a picture of the cake during the shower. My mom made such a delicious carrot cake which I paired with Peter Rabbit. I can assure you it was delicious.
Thanks to everyone for making it such a special day for Jen and baby!
