Butterflies and Baby Shower

Last Night a hosted a butterfly/garden themed baby shower for my sister in law and Eric'c younger sister Lisa. Lisa has 2 cute little boys, Easton {6 months older than Ady} and Zach {3 weeks older than Max} but now she is finally getting herself a little girl, due this September. It was a great night. We had a sit down dinner on my upstairs balcony with everyone because the guest list wasn't enormous it made it much easier to have a nice dinner instead of an open house/ buffet. I really liked being able to sit around and talk while we ate.

Flowers purchased at and potted by Cactus and Tropical (yes, those hydrangeas are REAL), Cupcakes by Dippidee, dinner made by me, Eric and Eric's mother Sue. Thanks for your help Eric and Sue!  And favors and shower decor by -- yours truly, Hailey Kandell.

The Dinner Menu
Chicken, steak and veggie asian ginger peanut kabobs grilled table side
asian cabbage salad with homemade dressing
Grilled artisan breads with olive oil and balsamic drizzle, topped with basil from my garden.
Berry fool with layers fruit in champagne flutes

After a lovely dinner outside, we went inside {where it was cooler} for gifts.
Lisa got some really cute girly stuff.
