Baby Shower

Over the weekend I helped co-host a friend's baby shower.  It was a lot of fun to come up with some finger foods and to try out some different recipes or ways of presenting them.  The location was fantastic that it helped the food look amazing!

Hope you enjoy! Recipes are in links and as always I modify and change. 

 Button sugar cookies as party favors in green, yellow, and blue. (Pinterest was a great help in all this)

 Smoked Trout Pate in cucumber cups

Lemon bars in jars without the crust.  I used a Lemon Lime Bar recipe and only used lemons.  I added whip cream and toasted coconut to top off.  

 Ricotta Crostini with: olive tapanade, radishes and salt, smoked salmon and lump roe, and fresh blueberries with honey. 
 Almond and Jam Pastries.  I used Challah with fig butter, and instead of the whole almonds I used almond meal.  I made these for Easter, but with Brioche, both were amazing!

 Fresh cut veggies of carrots, jicama, bell peppers, and heirloom caprese skewers with a drizzle of balsamic and olive oil.
 Guests were asked to bring fresh pink and white flowers to help decorate and as a gift for mom-to-be.
Pink and purple vanilla cupcakes topped with whip cream and fresh strawberries.
(personally, I didn't like how the recipe turned out, the cake was a bit too heavy for my liking)
