Baby Shower Part III.....the food and drinks

8.25.2010

Hope you are not tired of looking at baby shower pictures because I have more. If you are then just go on to the next blog. Today we are moving on to the food and drinks tables.



Christine fixed a lot of different foods and it was all very good.
I love the way she used a black polka dot fabric on the table and she even had some risers underneath to add different heights to the food display.


The yellow flatware was wrapped in yellow napkins and then she made napkin rings out of ribbon.


All the foods were described on individual tags that she made.


She placed fresh flowers in mason jars and tied monogrammed tags on them.




Bad photography here, but I don't have a do over. This was really good. I would have never thought of eating cheese, nuts and strawberry jam together.







Now on to the drinks table. This was set up on her breakfast table. I just love this large polka dot fabric.


Christine made each one of these labels herself. She just thought of everything!





Look how cute this is on the ice bucket. She found the bees at Michael's.





This lemonade dispenser was so cute.




This was a display on the island. See the sonogram picture?





Linking to Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.


Thanks so much for letting me share these pictures with you.

Y'all come back now,

KIM

  14. Wow! What a festive table setting. I love how she coordinated everything with the bee theme and the black, yellow, pink and white. Sooooo cute!! The bottled waters with Leila's name on them was a unique idea. This is the first time I've gotten to see her sonogram pic! The food looked yummy. It looks like a lot of thought and work went into this darling shower.

  19. The cheese ring recipe is in the cookbook called "Tea Time at the Masters". It is put out by the Junior League of Augusta, Georgia. It's official name is "The Now Famous Cheese Ring". Hope you enjoy.

  20. Amazing that she was the only hostess. I sometimes like it that way though, I can do everything I want to do without having to keep all the other hostesses happy. She did an amazing job. Love the flowers in mason jars, just too cute.

  26. I know that cheese ring, too! It was one of Roslyn Cartern's favorite Whitehouse recipes ... and I always thought it was funny that she rolled hers in pecans ... and not peanuts! Who could get tired of baby shower pictures? Keep them coming ... these are very special! Great job.
