FABBY: Baby Sower

I'm finally back from visiting my oldest Bil, who turned 70 and he's wife throw him a big bash.  They also live three hours away where my daughter Sofia does, so, we visited and shopped. 
Upon my arrival home, five days ago, I started to cook, prepare, clean, shine, bake, etc., for my niece's baby shower, after two girls she's having a boy.
 Bellow, my antique Meissen bowl with girls playing.

This tea pots are ready for some chai-tea I like to serve.
The cake I made was carrot cake, walnuts, with coconut flakes, toasted, to resemble hay for some farm animals and babies.
The cupcakes were really yummy, I did this recipe with apple and apple juice and cream cheese frosting, they were very moist!
I decorated them with baby figure things and a white chocolate baby  on top.  The figurines are eatable.
Sugar cookies, mocha cheese cake bars.  The empty plates are awaiting my Sil's little sandwiches, who was late!
The centerpiece.

I've missed you all very much, I can't wait to see what you're up too!!  Thanking you in advance for all your sweet visits, which always make my day!

Thank you wonderful hostesses for the great parties!


I will be joining these fun parties:

How's my buddy, Fabby, been doing??!!! I'm still on my blogging break, but I am trying to visit my favorite blogging friends every once in a while! :)
Your party looks FANTASTIC! Oh, the cupcakes were the best, and those cookies with that powdered sugar look delicious!!! Please convey my congratulations to your niece too... that's wonderful that she has two girls and now she is having a boy!! Her husband will be thrilled to have another "male" in the house to counteract all the girls! ;)
Hope you have been well, Fabby, and I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Fabby,
no wonder, that the baby shower was a success, when YOU made it. All looks so pretty and inviting. Your niece will be happy about the shower and it should be a nice omen for a happy baby, too. Wish you and your niece all the best.
Best greetings, Johanna

Rettabug said...

What a Beautiful shower for a little baby boy, Fabby! I think your cupcakes look scrumptious...CUTE decorations ...& of course, you HAD to use your gorgeous BLUE Onion china.

I almost bought one of those 3 part foldable serving pieces that you used for your centerpiece at an antique store. Now I'm kicking myself that I didn't get it. I may have to go back!

I didn't think I had any cloches, but after seeing how you have used cake stands, candy jars, etc. you've given me a whole new way of looking at what I have. Good work and thanks for stopping by to say hello.
