    These are such cute ideas. And the banana bread looks marvelous. When we did the baby shower for my daughter we did a whole mardi gras theme and I was in charge of doing all the food. It was a lot of fun though, even if it drove my ex nuts because I wanted to experiment with the food that we did.
