A Bottle (of brew), A Baby and BBQ

Like I said before, our group of friends keeps getting bigger thanks to all of the babies on the way.  Last night we hosted a diaper shower for Rachel and Brandon and baby Madelyn who will be here in July.

The evite: "Bring a bottle (of brew) for you and a pack of diapers for baby and join us for a BBQ honoring Rachel and Brandon and their baby girl."
Strawberry cake.  
Gran Gran always used to make this for my birthday.  
Used this recipe HERE.
It was delicious. 

Cocktail or Mocktail punch- called Strawberry Daiquiri Punch
Recipe HERE 

These tissue pom poms are really easy to make.  I remember making them in Girl Scouts.
HERE is a link for instructions.

Diaper wreath- this was easy to make.  I got a wire wreath from Michaels and used pipe cleaners to attach the diapers.

The boys and baby Cora.

We cooked Caprese Salad with Uncle Jimmy's home grown tomatoes.
Grilled Pork Tenderloin
Zucchini Gratin also from Uncle Jimmy's garden.  Recipe HERE

Baby Cora and Kari.  Cora is 8 weeks old already.

  4. Anna I believe you have become the official baby shower hostess of the Dallas area. I'm scared to tell you this by my mom and sister have seen your work and already trying to recruit you for mine in the future but I told them to back off b/c you are probably already booked! I tried that strawberry cake for the 4th of July and it was like heaven. Great shower...everything AND everyone looks adorable, esp baby Cora
