Last, but certainly not least, we wind up our April baby shower coverage with the doubly expectant mother. Due with numerous children, she's also due to be spoiled rotten before their debut. We've sent out the invitations and fancied the surroundings with aviary accessories. Now it's time to set a menu for the soirée. While making the grocery list, take the number of guests into account and consider the time of the event. For this afternoon fete, I'll be serving light fare and simple drinks to please the masses.
To see the full menu and pictures of the spread, just read more.
Food: In keeping with the bird theme, deviled eggs will complement the décor while pleasing the taste buds. Lunching ladies who like to keep things light will delight in the grassy looking tossed Chinese chicken salad. Fill some glasses with cheese sprinkled bread sticks for guests to nibble on while chatting. Satisfy attending sweet toothed gals with pastel cupcakes topped with wee nests of toasted coconut and jelly beans.
Drinks: Since the guest list is extensive, we'll keep the beverage list to a minimum. Most everyone enjoys a glass of lemonade or iced tea. Set out pitchers of both allowing guests to create an Arnold Palmer should it suit their fancy. Bottles of sparkling water are always appreciated at a baby shower as there are typically other pregnant or nursing ladies present.
