Happy cold Monday morning from the nation's capital mes amis! I hope everyone had a great weekend despite of the freezing temperature. I promise you that this will be the last post of my sister's baby shower. We took pictures of every details and it's just hard not to share every bit of it with you. It's also a way to share some inspiration with you incase you have parties to plan in the future.
When we first started planning our menu for the shower, we had many ideas on what to serve. The first thing we considered, though, was how to avoid stressing ourselves and spending most of our cooking time in the kitchen (yes, we have other things to worry like getting dressed and putting make-up on, haha). Since it was an afternoon party, we didn't want anything too heavy. Of course we didn't want to serve too much pick up foods either. Just enough to satisfy but not overwhelm the guests. I say this because in most Filipino parties, it's so typical of us to serve so much food on the table. Guests get so ovewhelmed and instead of savoring each entrees, their plate ends up looking like a mix match of different flavors. One food gets overlooked from the other. Minimal is the key. At least you get to showcase and savor each one.
Here are some food that we served during my sister's baby shower. I don't think we took pictures of all of it since we were rushing to get the party started. Our menu included mini tuna melt sandwiches, grapes antipasti, empanadas, cheese rolls, fruits, thai ice tea, chocolate ganache cake and sans rival.
Condensed Milk to mix with the Thai Iced Tea

The celebrant, blooming as always!
Allow me to take this opportunity to thank you for letting me share with you all the behind the scenes preparations of my sister's baby shower. We are so excited for my new nephew to come. He will be much loved. I guess the next major party we have to plan is the Christening:-)! Ah! the joys!
Thanks for always reading my blog.
