lots of black and white striped ribbon
It was a huge hit! From the invitations to the decor, from the food to the favors, Annie's French Baby Shower was une bonne fete!
tarragon chicken salad with almonds served on baguettes; mini quiche; crudites
caramel apple napoleons; mini chocolate pots de creme; mini chocolate croissants
raspberry-almond french macarons
pear-walnut-goat cheese salad
sparkling pink lemonade
handmade dotted-swiss sachets filled with lavender buds; ignore the backyard--I realized after the baby shower that I had forgotten to clean up the yard!
In addition to eating and opening presents, we played a fun--although challenging--game where the lyrics of popular lullabies and children's songs were written in French, and we had to guess the song titles. Our only French speaker got 17 out of 18 right, and our best non-French-speaking score was 13 out of 18. Not too bad!
