My daughter, Jamie, and her cousin, Christy (who happen to be just 6 weeks apart in age) are both expecting and this weekend was their Santa Cruz Shower! My sister-in-law and I hosted the shower at my home and we had so much fun planning it, keeping with the pink & blue theme. Jamie is expecting a girl and Christy a boy! They are due just 5 days apart. How fun is that!! The shower was perfect and the girls were truly blessed to have been surrounded and showered with so much love from friends and relatives. The shower was quite large (about 50 guests) and we all enjoyed a wonderful luncheon on a beautiful sunny day!
Here are the Mommy’s to be….
And because it all began 26 years ago, when we were expecting ……
(I can’t believe I posted that picture, I don’t care for the before or after of me, but we loved that fact that we had this photo of us from so many years ago! My sister-in-law actually had twins (the gorgeous bride from my recent post), but you would have thought I had triplets in me, I was HUGE!!! Oh, and don’t you just love the fashion statement we were making with those maternity dresses?? Anyways……
And, I can’t believe I did this, but I was enjoying the shower so much, that I forgot to take photos of the food and dessert table. I guess it’s hard to be the hostess, the photographer and the mom, and I didn’t realize it until I was sitting and eating that I had forgotten. Oh well. But, the menu was DELICIOUS and I guarantee you the table looked good too! In case you’re wondering, the menu consisted of: Israeli Couscous Caprese Salad, Summer Watermelon Salad and Mixed Greens w/fresh berries, goat cheese & candied pecans. Mini Sandwiches: Cucumber Cream Cheese, Turkey w/Brie & Arugula, Tarragon Chicken Salad & Hummus w/Grilled Vegies. And in case we weren’t full enough, the dessert bar: Cupcake bar, Fresh Strawberries w/French Cream, Lemon Bars and Mini Fruit Tarts. YUMMY!
