Baby Shower Brunch

My sister and mother recently threw me a lovely brunch baby shower at my home. They kept the decorations pretty simple with pink and white accents and lots of pretty flowers.

My sister put together an oh so yummy brunch menu with something for both the meat eaters and vegetarians in the group. A special thanks to my designer extraordinaire friend Mary Campbell for helping me create these cute menu borders that we printed and set out in frames. Mary used a much cooler font, but I had to make some last minute changes, so I take full responsibility for the not-designer approved font!

How cute are the little yogurt parfait cups she created with pink ribbon bows? Guests could combine almonds, granola and berry compote for the perfect mix.

Another big hit was the candied bacon that my sister made. How can you go wrong with deliciously sweet and crispy bacon?

For dessert, they got a caramel cake from Southern Sweets. This cake is the business! I did overestimate my ability to eat the entire gargantuan piece I cut for myself, but the Mr. and I dispensed with the leftovers in short order. The cake topper from etsy made the cake extra adorable.

I'm not really a shower game kind of gal, so instead, for an activity, we set up a onesie-making station with iron-on decals and fabric pens. My friends made such adorable onesies that I just know Baby V will be one stylish little lady! Get your own decals here.

Thanks to all of my sweet friends for the generous gifts and great company, and thank you to my mother and sister for hosting such a wonderful party!
