By itself it is a sight to behold, fresh, ripe, cut-up fruit, especially in the cold, winter months.

But, when it is served in this style, it is worth sharing with the blogging world.
My neice bought a watermellon, carved it out, cut up the fruit, and produced a gorgeous creation.
For her first attempt at this project, I think she deserves recognition, especially since she is a busy mom to three young children, including a new baby.

Cake pops instead of a decorated cake or cupcakes...what a fun idea!  Cake pops baked and decorated by another mother of young children.

The sister of the watermellon creation, did these beautiful chocolate covered strawberries.  What a perfect way to display them on the food table.  What talented neices I have been given!

The mother-to-be's good friend did the cute pink favors.  The tiny pink pacifiers completed the look and made a lovely presentation as it sat on the table by the door for everyone to take.

The pretty mother-to-be was a warm, gracious recipient of the evening's festivities.

I saw this saying recently and I thought of myself as a new, young mother, and how often I needed to call my mother during those first few years.  She may find herself doing that too.   Thank God for mothers!

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you enjoyed seeing a glimpse of another family baby shower.
Thanks also to my dear neice for sharing her photography skills with us.

Oh how we love an infusion of new babies in the family. I still think to "call Mom", though she's a little difficult to reach given her heavenly habitat.
