We had cute little handmade boxes of Acia/Blueberry Chocolates, and "Juicy Pear" Jelly Bellies for favors.
I cut these boxes out on my Sizzix Big Shot that I mentioned in the previous post, then taped them together.
Also on the dessert table were fine little chocolate bars that I wrapped in the matching papers, and purple and green rock candy and lolly sticks that I stuck into white matching vessels.
I also threaded matching ribbons through my white holey plates and tiers cake stands to go with the whole place.
Here are the busy hostesses in the wonderful kitchen.
We ate outside, and the day was so lovely that we decided to open gifts out there as well.
We ate beautiful homemade quiches, (by Debbie and Laurie), and a great grilled pineapple salad, (by Carolyn, who also did the flowers beautifully). I also made Rosemary Mozzarella Skewers that I got of of PW's blog. Yum! (I added little grape tomatoes to the skewers)
What a great group of friends to throw a shower with, and it turned out just right for the "mom's" friends and family to celebrate the new addition with her.
