Sugar and Spice- Party Food and Beverages

There are so many recipes online, especially with my Pinterest obsession, that I had a hard time narrowing down the food for this baby shower. You can go so many directions with a shower of sweets!

It was 110 degrees in Austin on the day of the shower, so we made sure to have plenty of cool refreshing drinks. Everyone loved the white wine sangria! We served the drinks in mason jars with cute striped straws.
In total we had 8 different desserts and yummy candies for the guests. Here are photos of the food and links to the recipes for the items I brought:
Chocolate Cake Pops and Cake Batter Rice Krispy Treats

Strawberry Cupcakes and Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes

Brownie Bites (after a kitchen disaster the morning of!) and Chocolate Hazelnut Dipped Strawberries

Sugar Cookies with Homemade Icing and Strawberry Lemonade Bars

I highly recommend a sweets shower for a very easy to create theme and a great way to showcase family favorite desserts that everyone has!
