I fully intended to make small, individual quiches in muffin cups for my daughter Whitney’s baby shower in early February. But as it got closer, I realized there simply was no time. My mother was very ill and needed me at her side. We improvised. That’s how many (good) ideas start... by last minute changes to what is happening in your life.

Hospice Center a few days before Whitney's shower.
Their Grandma Pendleton passed away a few days later.
My newest little grandson - Scotty had just been given
a name & a blessing the week before.
Heaven & earth are so close at times like this...
This is it, as far as the "recipe" goes... but if you want to view it without the shower details - go to: www.changeabletable.com
We served these with yogurt parfaits, mini cinnamon rolls, and a refreshing grapefruit/cherry/pineapple slush. I’ll post the slush recipe (from my daughter-in-law Rachel) - coming soon.
Here are a few photos of the shower... my daughters & daughters-in-law were the quintessential party planning machine! All I had to do was show up...
|Whitney loves owls... her sisters & sisters-in-law made these fun little owls|
from old sweaters and socks, mixed with a few scraps of felt & crocheted their feet.
|Yogurt parfaits... easy. Mix together Greek Yogurt with fresh strawberry jam.|
Layer with granola and fresh blueberries & diced strawberries.
|My daughter-in-law Tara made these sweet little mini-cinnamon rolls.|
Baked her favorite recipe a little smaller, and placed them in mini-muffin tins.
Drizzle with powdered sugar glaze and set in mini muffin papers on a serving tray.
|That little owl onesie was the cutest thing. |
Clothes-pinned to their banner in hot pinks made it even cuter.
|Whitney's little one - (her name has not been revealed yet - "Baby K" for now)|
will be wearing a new outfit every few hours...
|Fun idea for a baby shower. Write a message to Mom & Dad for late night diaper changes.|
|Of course there was an owl on top of the diaper cake (made by Tara)|
|Sweet little owl cap (made by sister-in-law Tara) for Baby "K"...|
(By the way, Baby K is due any minute now... just waiting for the phone call)
