This past weekend I helped my mother-in-law host a shower by making most of the food. I was also in a wedding on Saturday, so I couldn't really do any prep work Friday or Saturday; therefore, I wanted to make things that could easily be made a few days ahead of time, or that required minimal effort. I would like to apologize in advance for the horrid pictures.. I just quickly snapped a few before everyone arrived. Look for updates in the next week or so with individual recipes.
The shower was on a Sunday afternoon, so we kept it simple with finger foods and cupcakes.
