Have I mentioned how much I love to “play with my food?”
This statement defines me so very well. So I made a little party over the weekend for a good friend who’s expecting and when she told me that her nursery was going to be a “Woodland” themed one, I ran with the idea and came up with some “Woodland Fare” for her shower.
We had a variety of items like “Wild” berries…Stix of Veggies with Tzatziki…Chipotle Rosemary Roasted Nuts…Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms…individual “Pine Cone” cheeseballs with gluten free crackers…gluten free chocolate “Stump” cake with chocolate buttercream and mini gluten free vanilla “Toadstool” cupcakes with red vanilla buttercream…..along with Sparkling Blueberry, Lime & Mint flavored water.
I ran around snapping pictures before the guests arrived and as is always the case with me, I have more pics of the food than I do of the guests! But I was busy hosting and didn’t get too many pics of my friends! It was fun to let my creative juices flow for this little gathering and I love making good food for good friends and enjoying the fellowship that follows…..it was a lovely afternoon!
