Katie's Baby Shower




The planning for this baby shower officially started about a month ago.
Four girls eating a really rich and delicious breakfast (I dared take the steak and eggs at Murray Street) and questioning themselves about what truly makes a delightful baby shower.

a) food.
b) friends
c) games?

No games. We did not want games, but rather something made with our own little hands to give to the mom-to-be. So scratch out the c) option and replace with 'a piece of all of us'.

I was in charge of food, and the three other ladies busied themselves with all the rest : the invite (was Katie going to have a boy, a girl or a cat?), flowers (Bel Fiore we love you!!!), music, and most importantly, the hand made gift. From a mountain of fabric, lace & ribbon, all of us were to make a flag for a garland... how fabulous is that? Everyone needs friends like these. Beautiful, smart, creative, loyal, extraordinary.



Sangria? Lemonade?



As a starter, a mango and grapefruit salad
(mango, grapefruit, red onion, cilantro, mint, chili, lime zest + juice)
Also, we had gazpacho - I erased the picture!!! Oupsy!



Vegan tacos & beef tacos. Those who eat 3 win extra brownie points.



Katie's request: a chocolate pound cake.



A sweet ending with ice cream, fudge sauce, butterscotch sauce... and my finger in the picture.

How many points do you get if you ate 3 but could have eaten 7?! Marysol, there is no doubt this party would have been nothing without you! And today I am still soooo craving those tacos!

Marysol said...

You know that deep down, I am just like a grandmother - I am proud when someone goes for seconds! And if someone takes thirds, I get really obnoxious. ha ha.

K&R I love you!!!

Marysol,
You outdid yourself once again with all the beautiful food you prepared. I couldn't get enough of that cake. Everything was so gorgeous and delicious. It was a great shower!
I will send you pictures of the gaspacho xo
