His Name is Archer

Before I headed to Texas, I worked on a few things for Tennessee’s baby shower. Decoration for the baby’s room were also going to be decorations for the shower. I whipped up a few canvas for Archer’s room as well a little night light. Deer were the theme for this little celebration. A couple baby wipe keepers help round out a few of things for her gifts.

The weather was hitting us hard before the shower but eventually cleared up. What a day!

Marie made a sweet little baby blanket. Quilting the lovely blocks to the theme and embroidery. Isn’t it beautiful folks?!

We planned a sweet spread for the celebration. Cheesecakes and cupcakes were provided by their family, but Marie had the cutest little cookies made too.

We had a cheese boards chalked full of various cheese, meats, fruit, olives and preserves. We had a couple wheels of cheeses on our new cheese slicers. What fun! Several different types of breads that included olive oil dipping with fresh herbs from Marie’s garden. A couple of pastas with meatballs and grilled chicken to be topped with homemade marinara sauce and alfredo. We had little caprese skewers as well as sliced heritage tomatoes to add a little fresh touch. Fresh fruit and dip to satisfy the cravings of the mom-to-be. And of course, we had a little sangria punch (non-alcoholic)! I made sure there was a little sparking while for those not expecting.  Rounding it all off with some sweet tea (and unsweet).

Tennessee had a great time and loved everything. Now she is just waiting for her little blessing to arrive.  Marie, Ashley and I enjoyed planning this special day. Thank you again to Ashley for braving the kitchen with me this time.
