Real Baby Shower: Falling in Love with Halloween

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Elizabeth and I know celebrating the addition of a little one on Halloween is a bit ... well, off-beat. :) But, after feasting on Eliza's warm and yummy photographs she took at her friend's October 31st baby shower -- we're convinced that you can successfully incorporate just a little bit of fun Halloween details without going completely ghosts, goblins, and gremlins over board. And, this is exactly what cooking goddess Eliza did. Sure there were pumpkins, fall leaves and a really fun jack-o-lantern, but Eliza balanced out these spooky details by winning over our stomachs with one gorgeous fall, hearty meal and drool-worthy dessert at a time! And, do you want to know the best part? We think that as long as you aren't too afraid to pick up your wooden spoon and get your Betty Crocker on, this wonderful and laid back baby shower is a completely approachable shower theme for anyone. You'll just need to swing by Eliza's mouth-watering blog for the recipes and your local Williams Sonoma for a few things. :)

If looking through these photos made you as hungry as we are, make sure you swing by Eliza's scrum-did-ili-umptious foodie blog where you can find the to-die-for recipes for her ghost pumpkin cupcakes, homemade pumpkin spice ice cream, caramel apples, spiced cider, cinnamon apple tart, roasted green chili corn chowder and potato leek soup.
