Hostess Gifts

Well I am on the hunt for personalized hostess gifts.  There are a lot of options out there but none have knocked my socks off yet.  That is until I checked Beau-Coup!  They have a great selection of personalized gifts. 

I just love these personalized spa toiletry bags!

 Of course these personalized beach totes are perfect for this time of year...

So help me out-what is your favorite kind of hostess gift to receive after you've given a shower or tea?  Do you like personalized items, jewelry, or wine??  Or would you rather have food?
 


 


Fruity Cups

As promised, here is the recipe for the fruit cups from the "Love in Bloom" shower.  They have such pretty color and taste great too.  Perfect for your Mother's Day brunches this weekend.

Fruity Cups

1 can mandarin oranges-drained

1 large can of pineapple chunks-drained

1 large container of frozen, sliced, sweetened strawberries thawed

Mix everything together the night before except for the apples and bananas.  Mix those in before serving.  You can also substitute any fruit you like.  
 


Nesting Details

My dear friend Ashley sent me a couple of pics of the decorations she is working on for my Nesting Baby Shower in June.  I just had to share them with you- of course!

These birds are just spectacular!  I love all of the plumes.

You know how I love butterflies!  So cute.

These are already so adorable I can only imagine what everything will look like that day-beautiful! 

I am a lucky girl.
