We have two moms- to- be in our Bible Study small group. Both of these sweet girls are having little pink people:-) Today our group hosted a joint baby shower for them .... there is just something about little pink baby clothes that makes my heart squeeze !!!!
I made each of them a self binding recieving blanket - my favorite shower gift. I love that they're thicker than the ones you buy in the store. They're quick to make too. I had everything I needed in my stash to make them (see,it does pay off to be a fabric hoarder:-)
I combined a patterned and a marbled flannel. It is so lovely and soft. I also gave them two little outfits each. I wanted a super cute way to gift everything. I searched the basket aisle but nothing made me excited, then I just happened to find the 80% clearance aisle, where I saw two little soft, cuddly duck Easter baskets .... perfect !!! Look how cute it all looked together.
We all brought a dish to share for lunch. I offered to make the shower cake ...
It was a new recipe I found - Chocolate Mint Patty Cake. It was a triple layer cake frosted with a fantastic frosting (whipping cream and white chocolate chips melted together, and then beaten until light and fluffy). This cake was sooooooo sinfully good - there was not a crumb left. I'm sure each slice had 3 days calorie allowance in it !!!!
I decorated it with royal icing flowers, little baby girls and a chocolate crib I made using two dessert shells.
Hope you're having a wonderful week ..... until next time.
