My niece is having her first baby and it’s going to be a girl.  We rented a really cute cabin in a park to host her hot pink and apple green polka dot themed shower. The new mom to be and grandmothers to be wore silk and rhinestone Gerber daisy corsages.  You can see how to put them together here.  They have hair clips so she can wear them on one of those cute stretchy baby headbands purchased at Hobby Lobby Craft Store.  My sister in law put together the main center piece – a diaper cake.  The table is covered with hot pink table covers and apple green runners, pink Easter grass, sparkly flower beads and  monogram M for Masey.  Isn’t that a cute name? A cute little frog sat at a miniature table waiting his personal tea and cookies, which baby grand shared with him.

Little flower appetizers on Ritz crackers not only looked good, but were tasty too.   I just love the small Cherry Limeade Cookies.  That recipe can be found here.  The White Chocolate Covered Cherry Cupcakes are adapted from a recipe I made at Christmas.  For the dark chocolate covered cherry cake recipe look here.  This recipe is worth printing, it’s delicious.  Bird on a Cake:  Chocolate covered Cherry Cake recipe link here. The Icing I used needed to be white so I substituted white chocolate and topped with a chocolate covered cherry.  Since it was a brunch, we also served a penne pasta salad, Sausage Balls, Greek Salad in tortilla Scoops that my sister made (she’s a terrific cook!),  Celery with Jalapeño or Strawberry Cream cheese appetizers, and Chicken Salad Wraps.  Here is the recipe for the wraps.

Chicken Salad Wrap

20 small tortillas (if spinach or tomato tortillas are not available, go with the flour or whole wheat)
1 Deli Roasted Chicken, remove bones & skin, dice fine
2 Stalks Celery, cleaned & finely diced
1 Red apple, cored and finely diced
8-10 Dried Plums, finely diced
1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar (or warmed honey if you prefer)
Dice and chop all the ingredients and stir together.  Place a couple of Tablespoons of the salad on one side of the tortilla (leave an inch on each side).  Fold the sides up on the chicken.  Roll the tortilla tightly from the open side.  Place seam side down on platter.  Chill until serving time.  Cut the wrap in half at an angle.
