Here are few photos from today's Baby Shower.
Samantha was thrilled to see this banner I had made for the shower, and for her nursery.
Here is the spread, the cookies are by "Sweet Treats -STL".
Let's take a closer look, shall we?
The mommy to be requested my artichoke dip at the top with pita chips.
Another friend brought the veggie tray.
The main dish was this Roasted Salmon Nicoise Platter.
This is an Ina Garten (The Barefoot Contessa) recipe you can find HERE.
Omit the lemon juice as Ina does not use it in her video, and it makes it too thin for marinating the salmon. This is always a real crowd pleaser.
Bow tie Pasta Salad
Waldorf Chicken Salad
And my Aunt Mae's Popular Punch.
Thanks for indulging me with a little non-quilty items.
So, Samantha is making a face here because her gift was double wrapped......
you can't get to your gift that easily! LOL
Reading the label.....
Always label, and always give credit where credit is due!
Mom and Auntie had to sneak a peek too........hey......turn it around!!!!! LOL
I believe the mom and dad to be are very happy with their baby girl's quilt.
I loved being able to make and give this to them.
Congratulations Matt and Samantha!
