Baby Shower

My sister Rosie is due May 4 with her first baby. I'm so excited for her -- and it has been fun to be pregnant with a sister again (my sister Molly had a baby a month after I had Sandy).

We had a shower for Rosie last week. My mom came into town and it was so much fun to have her here -- and so much help!!

The invitation:
From left to right: Rosie, my Mom, Erin:
Favors - aren't these baskets adorable?
Close-up of the favor (the bags were filled with junior mints):
Napkins (I found this tutorial online for napkin rings):

A close-up of the silverware with the napkin rings:
The food. We had warm chicken salad sandwiches on croissants, cheese and crackers, caesar salad, and grapes.
For dessert, Gayla made these delicious brownie bites with chocolate-cherry frosting and a maraschino cherry. Yum!
Heather made these decadent chocolate covered strawberries. They went fast!
Heather also made oreo truffles. Delicious!

Now I only wish I had thought to get pictures of (1) my mom and Sandy and (2) me and Rosie with our matching pregnant bellies!
