As Ellen and I continue to plan for the Royal Baby Shower that we are hosting on June 2, 2013, for the benefit of The Pregnancy Resource Center of Metro Richmond, one of the main items of debate is the menu. In honor of the royal birth and our own princess fantasies, we really want the Shower to be something that we would imagine Duchess Kate enjoying.
The menu needs to be elegant yet fun, as well as fitting for the 3:30 – 5:30 time frame on a warm June day. Tea and Champagne, anyone?
Here are some of our ideas that we will be testing over the next week.
Proposed Royal Baby ShowerWrapped Asparagus
Spinach Pinwheels Tea Sandwiches (open-faced salmon on pumpernickel) Baby Cupcakes and Petit Fours Chocolate-dipped Strawberries Crown Shortbread Cookies Grape Caramels Fruited Champagne Salad Delta Mint Tea Iced Tea Assorted Juices Champagne Sparkling water
Question of the Week
What Would You Serve if You Were Hosting Kate’s Baby Shower?
Please share your ideas in the Comments below. We would love to incorporate your ideas if we can or at least suggest them to others. We will also add them to our Royal Baby Shower Benefit Pinterest board where we have been collecting menu and other baby shower ideas.
Finally, please let us know if you will be joining us on June 2nd at Ellen’s. You can r.s.v.p. HERE.
