Hosting a pink baby shower
Along with a few friends, I recently hosted a lovely, pink and girly baby shower for our friend Louise. And my goodness I loved planning and preparing this baby shower. It was so much fun; planning the menu and little snack and decoration ideas.
I knew that I wanted to bake cupcakes with pink frosting and decided on vanilla cupcakes with rosewater frosting. Lovley and delicate, perfect for a baby shower. It looked and tasted amazing.
Our apartment turned into a baby shower heaven filled with balloons, candles, napkins, tablecloths, plates, cake stands and it-a-girl banner, all in pink of course.
It was a small shower with 7 guests in total and we had prepared a real feast. We cooked both sweet and savory dishes.
This was our menu:
Sandwiches with tuna fish salad
Sandwiches with egg salad
Wheat tortilla rolls with cream cheese and smoked salmon.
Carrot and cucumber sticks with dip
Strawberry and marzipan cake
Sugar cookies with pink icing
Large marshmallows dipped in pink-colored white chocolate
Vanilla cupcakes with rosewater frosting
Mini vanilla cupcakes with licorice root frosting
Pink candy served in martini glasses
Simple punch made of elderflower, club soda and a bit of red food color
I cannot wait for the next babyshower I get to be a part of planning!
