Our daughter Jennifer and her husband Alex (the princess and the prince who got married last June) are due to have a baby girl November 11! This past weekend we threw a Whimsical Baby Shower in our barn for them!Friends and family came all the way from TX, NC, PA and VA to attend!
Jennifer and her sisters, Heather, Hannah, Rachael (Ellie couldn’t come) their babes and myself.
Fresh hydrangea’s and roses
I used the same crown from Jennifer’s bridal shower cake for the baby shower. Cake is dairy free and gluten free. Recipe here.
Heather hollowed out a cabbage and filled with veg dip.
Pickled Pink Eggs– Boiled eggs pickled in organic beets juice, apple cider, sugar and water. The longer you let them sit in the beet juice the darker they get. I only let these sit for a day so they only be slightly pink.
Striped straws cut in half and placed in punch cups for lemonade.
Fresh squeezed organic lemonade with a tad of pressed cranberries for pink color and health benefit.
Rachael’s dairy free/gluten free fruit meringue.
Jennifer’s mother-in-law, Candy came all the way from Dallas, TX. She’s a worker! She goes with the flow. My dish washer was broken and my hot water heater stopped working the day before the shower. She didn’t miss a beat, she washed dishes for hours in cold water.
Jennifer, Alex and baby girl! Psalm 127:3-5 “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!
