A couple of weekends ago I had the extreme joy of hosting my little sister’s baby shower. I am beyond thrilled that she is having a baby…it’s just her and I in our family and she is the first to have a baby/grandbaby, so this is pretty exciting for us and our parents! In just a little less than a month we’ll be welcoming baby Micah into the world and you can bet he will be spoiled to death. And I will probably spoil him the most! At least I’m gonna try. Haha.
The shower was a brunch and held at my parent’s church. We did a delicious breakfast casserole and fresh fruit, along with a dessert table that I planned months ago. It all came together perfectly and everyone had a great time. So wonderful having the opportunity to bless the parents-to-be. Great memories.
The shower was themed after the nursery, which is going to be Treetop Friends. Think trees, bird’s nests, owls, etc…
Here is the AMAZINGLY detailed cake by Celebrations by Sonja. It seriously looked just like the invitation. This is all buttercream, no fondant and I can honestly say her cakes not only look fabulous but are probably some of the best tasting I have every had.
Now for the dessert table…
“Treeknot” Mini Cinnamon Rolls
A close-up of all the yumminess.
The macaroon “bird’s nests” were delicious and it was the first time I’d ever made them. I got the recipe here and just tweaked a little by omitting the Nutella, adding some almond extract and filling them with blueberries and drizzling melted white chocolate over the top. Yum.
Such a fabulous time…now we wait for baby Micah to make his grand entrance!
