Over the weekend, a group of friends and I hosted a baby shower for a friend who has adopted the most precious baby girl. Our friends, Mike and Christie hadn't planned on getting their baby girl so soon, so when they got the call to come and pick her up, they didn't have anything ready for her coming home. We decided that we needed to have a shower for them so that they could get everything they could possibly need for their new bundle of joy. We put the shower together in a week and a half and I have to say, I think we did pretty well!
We decided to have what is called a Sip 'n See, where you come and meet the baby after it is born and sip on beverages. Since the time of the shower was in the morning, we decided to have light brunch hors d'oeuvres and two punches. We made Vanilla Petit Fours, Mini Cinnamon Rolls, Sausage Balls, Cheese Wafers, Tomato Basil Quiche, Lemon Tarragon Chicken Tartlettes and Fresh Fruit. Our punches were a Pink Lemonade Punch and Coffee Punch. We had so much fun putting it together and am happy to say that Baby Mallory got a lot of very cute things!
