The "Melib" of Melibindsay got together to throw a baby shower for the "indsay", as she is now less than 6 weeks from her due date! (which is Leap Day. Wouldn't that be awesome?!) We had tons of fun planning it! The theme? Alphabet.
Here are the invites I designed just using Pages (one day I'll learn Photoshop... not today) and I printed them on the back side of different cute papers. We went for the obvious color- pink (with gray accents).
my favorite pie crust recipe, and this filling recipe, using the frozen berry medley from Costco. The cupcakes were ones I had been wanting to try since I saw them here. I admit, though, I used a boxed cake mix- I was doing so much from scratch, I scrimped there, but everyone still raved about them.
this recipe for the Chicken Salad, which doesn't it look so pretty with those red grapes, green celery and brown cashews? I made the shredded chicken ahead of time with this easy crock-pot recipe- which I love to use and then take the leftover juices and blend them with the veggies and use it for stock in other recipes. The croissants were from Costco, although I would love to someday try and make croissants. If they're that good from Costco, imagine how amazing they would be fresh!! Anyone have a good recipe?
this shower. The "table cloth" is a queen, fitted gray sheet :)
My man is THE. BEST. I love you, Jay.
