On Saturday Kara, Allegra, and I hosted a baby shower for our friend Melissa! I was in my element—I LOVE to host and plan. I get so excited to make all the list; shopping list, mapping out the day by day plan, and hour by hour plan for the morning of the party! I made a cake, fruit tarts, spring rolls, and tomato soup shooters with mini grilled cheese.
It was a day filled with games, we guessed baby food ingredients, and more drinking than expected; Melissa is the first of our Denver friend group to have a baby so the booze were still flowing.
I picked a peaches and cream cake since it is peach season and then made a dark chocolate mini fruit tarts because the mom-to-be loves dark chocolate. The spring rolls and soup were more random picks but I liked them because they were a little different and fun!
The cake toppers, fitting the Baby is Brewing theme, were the homage to Michigan; Bell’s IPA and Michigan State University colored baby bottle.
