baby shower

good news...all went well for the baby shower on sunday. the weather was super hot on saturday and we were a bit worried that the plan to eat outdoors would have to be changed. sunday turned out to be a perfect day for sitting outside. the weather was great, the food was yummy and most importantly my cousin got to spend time with friends and relax for a bit. i picked up amazing flowers at the farmers' market plus trader joe's had peonies which is my new favorite flower. we used lanterns and paper flowers to dress up the tents. the menu:
scones with lemon curd, jam or cinnamon honey
a greek style frittata
spinach and artichoke dip with sliced baguette
fruit salad
a cheese plate with nuts and dried fruit
for dessert we served my husband's amazing chocolate chip cookies as well as homemade peanut butter chocolate bars and a super yummy chocolate graham cracker treat.
