Baby Shower & Thanksgiving for 34 people!


Well I am back from our trip to my mom's house. It was way fun...crazy but fun. It all started with a baby shower for my daughter Madeline. My mom and sister and my other daughter Emily pulled it all together using Hot pink and black. See the photos below. My cute mom slaved by baking all the goodies from scratch way in advance and freezing them. All the cupcakes, mini chocolate bundt cakes, the double decker cake and the regular sized cupcakes were all baked a week in advance. How fabulous is that! My Mom is one amazing gal. Emily did the frosting on all the cupcakes and Tiff did the fun chocolate mini bundt cakes..filling them with chocolate ganache and topping them all off with fresh raspberries. I frosted the layered cake and used tiny silk pom pom flowers for decoration. Mom whipped up the hot pink and black polka dotted table cloth just for the shower. Did I say she is amazing? Then we had the idea of filling one of her apothacary jars with pink mint candies and tying some black and white polka dot ribbon around the jar. Very cute! Then I had seen in a magazine the little glass jars filled with little flowers tied with ribbon hanging from a chandelier and thought how cute that would look. So I made a few of them to hang and they turned out adorable. We also hung a clothesline and used some of the clothes that Madeline has already received and hung them with miniture clothes pins. We served a yummy pasta salad, a spinach salad that my sister in-law made and some yummy pumpkin muffins that mom also made. We played a hysterical game....you blind fold two people and give them two bowls each. One bowl is filled with cotton balls and the other has none. Each player is then given a spoon and they have to fill the other bowl with the cotton balls. Truly hysterical...as you can't see what you are doing and rarely a ball goes into the bowl. We each took turns and laughed until our sides hurt. We all had a great time and everyone shared parenting tips with Madeline.





Then it was on to Thanksgiving for 34 people!
We cooked and cooked, and baked and baked, did a million and one dishes for days! Mom and Tiff set up all the tables and chairs and set the table at the local Lion's club Hall (down the street from Mom's house). We needed lots of space for 34 people.
