Yesterday I hosted a baby shower in honor of my good friend April.  She and her husband are expecting their baby boy early next month and we cannot wait to meet him!  I was thrilled to host her shower and tried my best to make it extra special for her.  I coordinated the homemade invitations and the decor to go with her gorgeous green and white nursery.  It was a brunch shower and the food turned out wonderfully!  I will be featuring several of the recipes on the blog throughout the next few days.

The spread (minus the cake – it arrived a bit late):

The gorgeous and delicious cake!  (No, I did NOT make this!  My talented friend Danielle did.)  It was a lemon creme cake with raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream under the fondant.  AMAZING!

The menu was as follows:
juicy iced tea (green tea mixed with pomegranate juice)
strawberry lemonade

mini lemon poppy seed and blueberry muffins
apple cheddar and chocolate chip scones
tropical fruit salad
smoked salmon rolls
pesto palmiers
pineapple chicken salad sandwiches
stuffed strawberries

Oreo truffles

Here are some other detail pictures:

Handmade invitations by moi.

Ten of these tissue pom poms hung over the dining table.

I dyed these onesies with Rit dye for a cute background during games and gifts.
Reuseable Blumeboxes filled with daisies were a great way to spruce up several surfaces.

Boxes of green and white drizzled Oreo truffles for favors.

Mommy and Andrew after it was all over – what a fun party!
