Baby Shower Weekend (T)

Well- I spent all last week resting and trying to rid myself of that cold and then we were off to Pennsylvania for a 2nd Baby Shower held at my daughter in-law's parent's home.
As you can see with the cake the science theme was carried on!

 The day was quite perfect- low humidity and clear skies.  It was a bit warm but they had fans running inside the tent which helped a great deal.

Little party favors in cute boxes.

 There was macaroni and cheese, baked beans, roast beef with gravy, pulled pork with buns, coleslaw, a mixed salad with strawberries and a platter full of grilled vegetables.

A great selection of desserts including cherry crumb pie that I brought.  

The fruit tray was loaded with wedges of watermelon, strawberries and blue berries.  The cherry crumb pie is on the right.  Key lime dessert, brownies and the cake that was lemon with a strawberry layer filling that was scrumptious!

Lots of cute clothing and gifts.  A wonderful day for all :-)


The next morning we met for brunch at the Kimberton Inn - circa 1796.  Pennsylvania is loaded with great places like this.

 We were one of the first groups to arrive (reservation only) at 11 so I snapped a few shots before it was busy.  There is an impressive amount of period furniture- notice all the Windsor back chairs.

 The lighting was dim but this is full of blue and white porcelain pieces.

 This was our table

 Another view from across the table.  Loved this cabinet and how it was set up.

I loved that my food came on this antique plate.  I wanted to turn it over to see who made it but I didn't dare since the Inn had really filled up.

I felt frumpy that day but I was overly tired and still dealing with the cold I had.  Overall we had a great time and I'm glad we made the trip.  

We drove home that day and witnessed a gorgeous sunset.  A perfect ending to the weekend.


  1. Liz, what a fun time. Everything looked great. Fruit salad looked amazing and give me pulled pork and coleslaw and I'm happy. Pennsylvania is filled with many charmers like the Inn.

    Hunterdon and many other parts of NJ are filled with them


  2. Hi Liz, what a perfect outdoor shower and so wonderfully set up and decorated. Loved the cake and the cute favor boxes. The Inn looks so charming. I love the furniture. PA is one of my favorite places to visit. I went there every summer growing up since it was home to my parents along with Morgantown, WV.
    Hope you're feeling better now. Have a great week. xo

  3. Oh wow, how fun is this. Love the decor and the food too.

  4. What a nice place to visit! My mom was raised in PA, but I have never visited for long enough. I would love to antique shop! I hope you are feeling much better. You DIL's party was a lovely event. I am always impressed with that level of effort! SO nice you came by. Our guest house is two doors down, and strictly for our convenience. We have lots of kids and grandkids that visit, but don't plan on getting a bigger place. A rental so close by does the trick! And it's turning out to be a lot of fun.

  5. Very sweet cake and the party favor is darling. Looks like it was a lovely day for a shower. The tents make it a nice affair outside. I know it was a long trip for you. I hope you are back to your usual healthy self soon .

  6. Liz,
    What a wonderful "second" Baby Shower, dear friend!
    Loved the Inn where you had brunch!
    "Mr. Ed" and I spent one anniversary while stationed in Maryland.
    I did some inquiry with the "locals" and found an out of the way Inn for our evening!
    It appears to be similar to yours photographed here!
    Precious memories. . .for the both of us!

  7. Oh Liz! What a wonderful baby shower! And you had them almost back-to-back! Your historic Inn reminds me of where we hosted Katie's shower - just so charming!

    I would love you to share your recipe for cherry crumb pie - yum, sounds so delicious!

    The momma-to-be is adorable. I wish her the very best! Hugs! ♥
