lilsugar is celebrating mamas-to-be all month with extensive baby shower coverage that will help you put on awww-inducing, unique, socially relevant, and hip fetes. This week, we are planning an heirloom-themed party that pays homage to cherished childhood moments and passing down treasured items or advice instead of consumer goods. We've mapped out the theme and invitations, as well as ways to set a nostalgic ambiance and décor, which means it's time to address delicious vittles! Evoke tasty memories with the mom-to-be's favorite childhood recipes (this requires a call to grandma or a close family member) or dish up a classic, no-frills menu that's light and easy to create.
- Spread: Serve heirloom tomato tarts, mango caprese salad, French bread, and a cheese plate.
- Drinks: Italian fruit punch made with limoncello, champagne, sparkling water, and cappuccinos.
- Treats: If you don't have time to bake, pick up colorful macaroons or any cookies grandma might make (like oatmeal raisin or chocolate chip). If you're willing to put on your baking hat, try simple Rice Krispie Treats on sticks.
