A Springtime Baby Shower

There's something about spring and babies. This is the second shower of three that I have hosted thus far. We used a pink/green color scheme, but I was a little bummed that I couldn't get pink tulips.We served chicken salad in pastry cups as the main course, though these don't quite look like main course. The pastry shrank while it baked, so the cups were a little smaller than desired.This is a vegetable pizza, but you don't actually cook it. The crust is crescent rolls; the spread is a savory ranch; the toppings are broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, tomatoes, green onions, and cheese.I tried my hand at a fruit bouquet this time. It turned out cute enough, if you ignore all the skewers.These are turtle brownies, a combination of my favorite ingredients: chocolate, caramel, and pecans. There must always be a chocolate dessert.And finally, these are mini cheesecakes, some with strawberries and some without. I just bought ready-made crusts, and that made all the difference.

I've never seen a fruit bouquet before! That looks way cool!

I've been craving your veggie pizza lately... I might need to make some.

You do such beautiful parties. The spread always looks so pretty AND sounds yummy.

The fruit turned out great! And I like the sticks. Plus, I didn't even notice there weren't pink tulips. The others were beautiful.
