Babies are a hoot!!! I hosted a baby shower for my sister-in-law who had an adorable little girl last September. She is beautiful, her dad is wonderful, and her momma is excellent as well! The party was a lot of fun, and gave me courage to start baking here and there. These were my very first attempt at icing cookies and using them at a party. Everyone was very complimentary… however, I don’t think they tasted very good. But, since we live in the South everyone was very polite and I didn’t even hear one “Bless her heart…!” (Rest assured, I’ve adopted an excellent tasty recipe since these.)
At the party I served a lunch that was inspired by the first lunch my SIL and I had together at the Puffy Muffin. For dessert we had these iced cookies, a cute cake and some simple pink cake pops. The beverages were home-made lemonade in “Kerr” jars with pink & white striped paper straws (love them!). For decorations I made a diaper wreath for the front door which served as a gift for the new parents. We also decorated with monogrammed (South, y’all) onesies and fancy pants that my talented friend Liz made. For the finale I made party favors that were owl cake pops that had a ribbon tied to them reading “Babies are a Hoot!”
It was a very fun day, and I’m so happy Anna Lane is finally here. So is Gooey who likes to mother her as much as we’ll let her!
