Lots more beautiful images & details to share with you from the “Oh How Tweet” baby shower today…

…from amazing rhinestone-studded invitations to a mouth-watering menu (served by dad-to-be & other family members acting as “waiters”!) and “sweet tweets” like mini chocolate bundt cakes topped with spun sugar nests!

The dinner portion of the evening was also really wonderful…

As a surprise to me, the main men in my life (my husband, my father, my brother, etc.) acted as our waiters for the evening and served up a delicious fare!

The food included:

  • a Giada De Laurentiis Pasta Primavera (recipe found here)
  • individually made Parmesan Cheese cups that “nested” a fresh mixed green salad
  • garlic stuffed mushrooms, Caprese salad skewers, and Italian meatballs
  • Oh So Precious Pink Punch,” “Lullabye Limeade,” and “Baby Bliss Citrus Punch”
