Sugar and Spice, and Everything Nice

A baby shower took place in the tea room today.  Susanna prepared the favors... a variety of herb plants, rosemary, sage, lavender, parsley, and more.  Each was gaily wrapped with pink netting and perky pink and green ribbon.  A card was tucked in amongst the herb plants explaining the symbolism of the herbs and flowers.  Speaking through the language of flowers, silently wishing for wisdom, remembrance, courage and more for the mother-to-be and her guests.  Each guest was invited to take home one of the plants as a remembrance of their time together today.

One of the menu selections today featured one of Nancy's specialty cakes, shown here.  Although difficult to discern in the photo, the baby booties are three dimensional.  Baby showers are always such fun!  Sugar and Spice, and Everything Nice, today.  Absent were the snips and snails and puppy dog tails.

Nancy, Your cake is beautiful! I just finished reading a fiction called a Language of Flowers and was reminded of that book when reading the meanings here of the flowers. This is such a fascinating topic to think about how the flowers speak to us. A lovely theme for a baby shower.

You MADE that cake, Nancy? W-O-W! I think you must have superpowers ... and oh, those baby booties -- love them! (Wondering how on earth you got the cuffs to stand!)
