One of my favorite things to do is a plan a party.  I love seeing it all come together from beginning to end.  In order to keep things organized I rely heavily on my Party Planning Guide Printable.   There’s a spot for everything from favors to centerpieces to food ideas.  If you’d rather have your menu in one place then you’re going to love these Baby Shower Food Ideas that include everything from appetizers to desserts.  Planning a party can be stressful so I want to take the stress out of it by providing you with everything that you need.  Including the Best Baby Gift EVER!  How cute are those?!

My days of baby showers seem to be behind me, which is disappointing because I love them.  I love making the mama-to-be feel the love of her family and friends.  I especially love making and enjoying the food.  A blogging friend, Michelle from Healthy Recipes Ecstasy,  recently celebrated the birth of her son.  She is enjoying her time with her new bundle of joy and is sharing her thoughts on Parenthood, which I always enjoy because a new mother always seems to have a great sense of humor and Michelle definitely has hers.

Not only is Michelle a new mother, but she’s an amazing cook and she’s back to sharing gorgeous recipes like this Lemony Smashed Chickpea, Artichoke and Feta Grilled Cheese.  So if you’re not already following along with her, you absolutely should.
