Whenever I think of Easter, these are the things that spring to mind: Bunnies, mini eggs, chicks and roast lamb.
But I never end up doing anything Easter related! Last year, I hosted this epic chicken wing party, and this year, we threw a baby shower for a good friend of mine.
The baby shower was a lot of fun, it involved a lot of food & desserts and of course baby shower games! Between us, Burger Law and I were pretty pleased with our efforts, and mum-to-be had a good time.
Desserts set up first!
Hand made baby shower bunting with baby gros and clouds on mini pegs.
The lovely cupcakes by Mary. They were so good, especially the matcha ones.
Lemon-curd and coconut macarons. I love my stackable macaron tower.
Okinawa salt just tastes amazing in desserts. I will post a recipe for this soon!
I'd been wanting to make these mini dessert shots for the longest time. They are just too cute!
Handmade nappy cake - nappies are always a useful baby shower present...
Just in case there were desserts left over to take home... they got used
Any excuse to use my apothecary jar. Easily filled with marshmallows.
We love our wings! And any substantial savouries of course
Burger Law's sandwiches are out of this world. I know you are thinking they are just sandwiches, but they are far better than ones I've had at expensive afternoon teas. Yum!
Soya braised chicken wings made by the mum-to-be
Thai sweet chilli and soya wings. Recipe here.
Home made gyoza/dumplings. I will be posting the recipe soon.
I didn't manage to get photos for the games, but it involved blind tasting jars of baby food, naming celebrity baby names, ping pong ball dropping, and nappy changing to name a few. Burger Law happens to be a brilliant games master and whenever games are involved, she's there making it happen!
That's a wrap for our home-hosted baby shower, we are now just waiting for baby Lo to make an appearance.
I hope you all had a great Easter!
