Baby Shower

On February 23rd.

we had a Shower Party at our 
neighborhood clubhouse for 
our daughter, who is expecting 
her first child.
We dined on delicious appetizers of 
cucumber sandwiches, chicken salad 
 puff pastry bites, asparagus wrapped 
in filo dough, and miniature quiches!
Fresh vegetables with dill dip 
tasted crispy and 

For the sweet tooth
we served chocolate covered strawberries,
chocolate cake,
peanut butter blossom cookies
and baklava made by yours
For our very young guest we 
served heart shaped 
peanut butter sandwiches.

A coffee/hot chocolate bar 
was available for our guest. 
It consisted of flavored
syrups for your coffee or hot cocoa 
along with whipped cream and chocolate chips.

We had a lovely time!
We gave Zoya nail polish as a party favor.
Zoya always names it's various colors using girls' names.
I chose the color named "Avril" since the baby is due
 in April and the color was a soft nude pink.
Do you see the doll on the 
I made her for my graddaughter!

OhSewDollin has this wonderful pattern 

for a Raggedy Ann 
style doll on Etsy. 

My doll matched the bedding my daughter 
picked out for the baby's nursery.
Rather than the traditional red hair, 
this dolly's yarn hair is bright pink and 
her nose is pink too. 
I embroidered her dress! 
 The shoes are painted a dark chocolate brown 
and the socks are painted
an antique white.
I made several little kittens for all 
the little girls who attended 
the shower.

Now we just have to sit back
and wait for April 15th.!
