Instead of bringing a card guest were asked to bring a children's book to sign so that we can start a collection of books for the nursery. When I arrived at the shower I realized the girls continued with this idea to make a storybook theme for the shower. There were children's books displayed throughout the tea room and they had this adorable cake made to go along with the theme as well. The top layer was Vanilla Almond and the bottom cake was red velvet (my favorite). I have a slight sugar addiction these days and loved every bite of the two slices of cake that I had.
There was a huge spread of food that the owner of Chantilly's put together for the party. She did a wonderful job creating a variety of food and there was more than enough for everyone to enjoy.
fruit, cheese and crackers and mini quiches.
Meatballs, tea sandwiches, chicken salad in phyllo cups, and chips with hummus
Chicken and cheese on a baguette (tasted like a pizza), spinach dip and crackers, and veggies with ranch dressing dip.
The famous poppy seed muffins with strawberry butter that Jason's mom started at the tea room and it is still served today to munch on while waiting on your food.
It was truly a memorable day and I am so thankful for wonderful friends and family for making the day so very special. Only a few more weeks until we get to meet our baby girl!
