I recently had the pleasure of co-hosting my friend Julia's baby shower, along with two of her other close friends. Julia is [also] a Disney lover and I knew that she wanted a girly shower, so when I came across this Cinderella theme on Pinterest, I knew it would be perfect. We agreed that her shower should be inspired by this theme but not overly done; classy and pretty. I love mini books and I've used children's books to make them in the past but this was the first time I used a Little Golden Book. I was very inspired by this vintage 1976 Cinderella, which I altered into the shower guest book and added pages to include photos and mementos from the day. 

Julia's bestie, Emily, was in charge of food and ohmygoodness did she nail it! The shower started at 11 a.m. so we agreed on brunch, but she came up with the menu and executed it on her own. I was joking (not joking) that I want to use her for all my events moving forward. She made breakfast cupcakes, spinach and mushroom quiche cups, parfaits, blueberry french toast, mini tea sandwiches, mini fruit pizzas, and fruit salsa with cinnamon crisps. If that doesn't have you salivating, I don't know what will! She even bought all these fun food toppers. Our good friend, Jessica, did the beautiful decor and all the yummy drinks. She served everything from mint and cucumber water and peach sweet tea, to champagne punch. So good!
The favors were these GORGEOUS custom cookies from Yummy Delicious Cookies by Whimsical Originals. Ya'll know how much I love Deb and her beautiful custom cookies. We've used her for every one of Benjamin's birthdays so far. She's just so talented!
What would an event be without a signature cocktail? What would brunch be without champagne? Well, I've got some great news for your mama-to-be guest of honor. She doesn't have to miss out with FRE Alcohol-Removed Wines! FRE Wines offers a variety of selections, including Brut, Chardonnay, Merlot, Red Blend. With less than one half of one percent of alcohol, these provide a great alternative for expectant mothers and anyone who chooses not to consume alcohol.
This mocktail recipe is perfect for toasting the honorary mama-to-be and makes 2 glasses. You can easily double (triple, etc.) it to serve to all your guests. 

FRE Alcohol-Removed Brut Sparkling Wine
2 cups frozen fruit (strawberry, raspberry, and blueberry)
1 cup ice cubes or frozen cubes of yogurt
1 cup juice or water
sugar to rim glasses
  1. Rim glasses with sugar. Slide a piece of fruit around the rim then dip into a dish of sugar. You can also use a pre-mixed rim sugar as photographed here. Freeze glasses.
  2. Blend frozen fruit, iced cubes or cubes of yogurt, and juice/water until smooth.
  3. Pour smoothie into chilled glasses, careful as to not hit the rim. Fill the glass a little more than 1/2 full.
