Oh, baby!

This Sunday I'm hosting a baby shower for my friend Ann and little Baby S. So I have a to-do list (that is currently in my head and needs to be transferred to paper) involving meal planning, shopping, game planning, and other prep.

It's coming along nicely--I really enjoy planning baby showers! Even better, Ann wants to have the shower at her house, and I'm not rushing to get my house in pristine condition. (And since Ann has a new baby, no one will expect her house to look perfect!)

Yesterday I put together most of the guest favors--just simple little votive candles with a side of chocolate.

Baby shower favors

Our menu will be mostly plant-based, since Ann is vegan. I've ordered a delicious-sounding vegan cake (chocolate with raspberry filling) from Whole Foods Market, and I'm excited to try it!

So wish me luck as I get the shower planned...and give me grace if my posts are a little shorter, later, and/or less frequent than usual, for the next few busy days!

Even though I can't make it, save me some of that Bliss!!!

Good job. Ann is lucky to have you as a friend (and so am I).

Beth...I'm guessing you made these after I left yesterday. They are beautiful :-). I might have to steal this idea from you sometime :-). Peace and prayers out to you over the next few days.

Everything is better with a side of chocolate! The cake does sound divine. I suppose I'll cut you a little blogging slack. But just this once!!!

This Ann-person is a very lucky lady! To have such a wonderful friend. I pray peace over you! Everything will be fine, it doesn't need to be perfect! The thought and effort are very much appreciated....
Beth, you are awesome!

Good luck planning the shower. I'm sure it will turn out wonderfully. Sounds like great plans are in action already and those favors are adorable and delicious!
