Yesterday was a pretty busy day. Mostly because our small group threw a baby shower for one of the new moms in our group.
We decided to have fun and be fancy.
Here’s our table with all the food (there was a lot for only five of us!):
I made the centerpiece. I had a vase from a wedding I went to, they were letting people take home the arrangements so I grabbed one to use the vase and foam one day. I think that was like 5 years ago. This weekend is the first time I used it.
Then we spent our time relaxing, eating and talking. Here’s what I made.
I was thinking about making scones since you can’t have tea without scones! I didn’t want to pay for the ones in the store. They are always too expensive and don’t make very many. I had pretty much decided that I wasn’t going to make those when Monica posted about her daughter’s tea party. I checked it out and got very excited to see a basic recipe with a chocolate chip variation.
You need to check these out!
They seriously took me back to my college Coffee Cottage days. (this link has a short, kind-of funny Chapters vs Coffee Cottage debate on it…). I haven’t had a good chocolate chip scone since that time so this is now added to my breakfast baking list.
