Go Baby Go!
It was a Saturday "come and go" brunch. She is having a boy so the theme was, Go Baby Go. Lots of trucks, cars, planes and trains were used as decorations.
This table was set in the kitchen area for guest to sit and enjoy their food.
I covered cardboard pieces with wrapping paper to make placemats.
We made lemon cakeballs, brownie bites and lots of great cutout cookies. Kristy is the best cookie decorator I know. She made planes, trains, dump trucks and sailboats that were so darling. My college roomie was here to help and made the cutest "pacifier's" out of lifesavers and jelly belly's to put on top of the mini cupcakes. I requested these because she had made them for my baby shower when I was expecting Jenny. We have come full circle now.
Our baby boy will be named Thomas Jeffrey after both of his grandfathers.
We served Broccoli Cheddar soup with homemade clover rolls. The day was cold so the soup was enjoyed by everyone.
A large bowl of fresh berries were a big hit!
The main course was a salad bar. The greens were in the large pewter bowl in the center surrounded by "fixin's".
Grilled Chicken, croutons, cheeses, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, chopped eggs, celery, green onions, dried cranberries, pine nutes, glazed pecans....all my favorites from the salad bar placed in individual glass containers around the salad bowl. That way everyone could make their favorite salad.
Debby made these adorable Thank you bags and filled them with blue Hershey's kisses that said...It's a Boy!!
A clothesline of baby boy gowns and onesies!
Thanks to everyone for blessing TJ that day. It was fun. We had about 25 people. It's always special to welcome a new life into the world.
Thank you Lord for the blessing of babies. We acknowledge that they belong to You and are lent to us for a short while. Thank you for entrusting their lives into our hands and our families. May we teach them your ways and show them your love so that when they are older they will know and love you with their whole heart. In the name of Jesus we pray...AMEN!!
Miss Ella came to the Sprinkle. Boy....is she about to have her world rocked....
