Celebrating A New Arrival

First of all, let me start by saying that I have amazing friends. My friends are talented, kind, helpful and sure know how to have fun. So when a bunch of us got together to throw a surprise baby shower for a trendy 'Mommy-To-Be' was fun! 

Party Details:
Mouth watering appetizers made by our very own super cooks and mocktails served by the father-to-be set the stage for a fun afternoon. Our nursery themed cake was inspired by this cake. We got a basic sheet cake from Publix. The little keepsake cradle and nursery accessories were from Hobby Lobby. Nursery walls were made out of cardboard and bright green curtains were ribbons.The amazing diaper cake was made by my talented friend D and here is the link to get some more pictures of this stunning creation. Check out the favors with a sleeping baby on top, how cute are those salt and pepper shakers!

  • Chicken malai kabab
  • Garlic mushroom
  • Hara Bhara kabab
  • Bread rolls
  • Samosas
  • Grilled asparagus
  • Chips with mango peach salsa

Drinks: Non alcoholic mixers from World Market with fruits juices
  • Simple Cosmo mixer with club soda
  • Margarita mixer with lemonade
  • Sparkling pear juice 
  • Sparkling Meyer lemon juice.
