a baby shower

Still working backwards...

Before we left for the States, Joey helped me host a baby shower for our dear friend, N.  He did almost all of the cooking: mini frittatas, cheesy scones, deviled eggs, mini crab cakes, cucumber sandwiches, homemade pimento sandwiches, and corned beef and pickle sandwiches!  He also helped me bake the red velvet cupcakes, lemon bars and cherry cheesecake brownies in under 4 hours (something that would take me alone over 6).

N and her husband, B., recently welcomed their new, beautiful baby girl, whom we cannot wait to meet when they with her return to post in a few months.  I had a lot of fun decorating the house, although I still haven't figured out how to get the double-stick tape off the 12-foot ceilings...


  1. Targets, costco, party stores and bakeries all within 5 minutes of my house; and I still couldn't have pulled of a party as well as you did! I am amazed!

  2. I'm very impressed! You should be a party planner - it all looks picture perfect!
