Baby Shower Buffet Idea

I am busy getting ready for our Soroptimist Baby Shower and I thought I would share
 this quick tip. I must have seen it somewhere before but have never tried it.
A basket of eating utensil babies make the buffet fun and easy!
You start with a napkin, utensils, a plastic twist tie or ribbon and a Sharpie.
Stack the knife, fork and spoon upside down.
   Gather the napkin "blanket" around the "baby" and secure with
 the twist tie, like a swaddled baby.
Draw a curl, eyes and a mouth on your baby. Don't worry about your artistic skills.
Make some smile, coo and cry. Each baby is unique, just like real babies.
The most important part is to have fun!

Cake Philosophy!

When life (or high altitude) hands you a sunken cake,
fill it with frosting! Frosting is my favorite food group ;)

My fabulous friend, Linda, brought me a beautiful bouquet of hydrangeas from her garden.
 I LOVE them and was so excited to have a vase full. Wish I would have taken photos
of them. The one survivor was this beautiful pink hydrangea (on the left).
The color perfectly matches the pink in my peonies! We got more peonies
 this year than ever, including the white bloom.
The vase is a pitcher from my collection of milk glass.
What flowers do you have in your garden now?
Enjoy them,
