Before this weekend, I was a total baby shower virgin. I begged the two sensational hosts to let me come help prep, which, in this case, meant making tea sandwiches. (Also a first for this girl.)
I prepped some traditional cucumber-cream cheese and salmon-cream cheese varieties while host Sarah opted for all sorts of savory combos: apple-cheddar-mustard, chicken-fig-goat cheese, egg-mayo-lettuce, and my personal fav: sprout-walnut-avocado.
You don't feel so bad eating 10 when they are dainty. (And delicious.)
There were also scones:
And a diaper cake:
And earl grey cookies:
And yummy baby-friendly (and not-so-baby-friendly) drinks:
And healthy things like fruit and green salad which didn't capture my camera's fancy given the other more decadent dining options omnipresent.
And - of course - tea!:
One of the lovely hosts brought her entire collection of antique, mismatched tea cups for us to sip out of. I felt so important and refined.
That is, until I decided to decorate a onesie with a fellow guest:
watch out Jackson Pollock - you got some stiff competition
What were you up to this weekend?
