Party: Katie's Baby Shower

My little sister is having a baby in a few weeks.  I helped with her baby shower this last weekend.  It's hard to believe that this will be grandbaby number 15 for my family and even harder to believe that the baby of the family is having a baby!  She's having a boy so we went with a "little man" theme and stuck with the colors orange and gray, the same colors they used in his room. 

A big family means there's lots of people to help with events like this!  This shower was definitely a group effort, which was nice because if you've ever given or helped with a shower, you know they can be A LOT of work. 

We went with comfort food, which tends to be right up Katie's alley.  My sister-in-law, Britney, made mini loaves of homemade brioche for grilled cheese sandwiches.  They turned out delicious!

Here's the menu and some pictures of the details. 
  • Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches:  bacon and cheddar, three cheese, and ham and swiss
  • Roasted Tomato Soup
  • Sweet Potato and Beet Salad 
  • Limeade
  • Peanut Butter Bars
  • Vanilla Cupcakes

Three choices of mini grilled cheese sandwiches:

Hurry up and get here, little nephew!  I can't wait to meet you and love you already!
