daisy baby shower luncheon

My sister, Emily, just had her first baby – a little girl – and my sister, Sarah, and I decided to throw her a girly, daisy-themed shower to celebrate.  I suggested, in keeping with the theme of the party, that Emily name her daughter, "Daisy"; she respectfuly declined.


The menu included Ina Garten's turkey basil sandwiches, heirloom tomato and fresh mozzarella salad, chicken tortellini salad, bread sticks and fresh fruit.  Crepe paper daisies were hung above the buffet.


The color theme was pink and yellow. The dessert table looked especially lovely with coconut cupcakes (personalized with small flags that read "Baby Girl"), shortbread cookies covered in pale pink frosting, French-Style Yogurt Cake with Lemon, and Lemon and White Chocolate Mousse Parfaits with Strawberries.  Yellow and pink candies added to the colorful spread.


For favors, my mom made lovely daisy-shaped sugar cookies; I designed favor tags to match.


I can't throw a party without redoing the water bottle labels. In my opinion, it's all about attention to detail that makes a good party!
