We had a fun opportunity and pleasure of hosting a ‘baby sprinkle’ for my dear sister and brother in law as they await the arrival of their second baby. Baby Sprinkles are smaller than Baby Showers and celebrate the birth of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and so on of babies. We wanted to welcome the newest member of the family and ‘sprinkle’ my sister and brother in law with love, fun, laughter, and of course good food! I’m so thankful to be selected for Foodbuzz 24×24 which sponsored the event and wanted to share with you all the fun, festivities, and of course menu of our baby sprinkle. Since the gender of the baby is to be a surprise, we decided to go with a green and yellow rubber ducky party theme. I made this simple, yet elegant diaper cake as the main centerpiece.
We are lucky ducks living in Los Angeles with 75 degree weather in January so we had the party in our backyard. Rubber ducks floating in a pond of water and blue crystals served as table centerpieces. Now to the fun part…the menu! Here are some of the courses from the menu. Our main course was sous vide flank steak tacos topped with salsa, guacamole, grilled green onions, jalepenos, and starfruit.
As a refreshing side dish, we had green papaya salad with Vietnamese beef jerky and a soy vinaigrette.
For refreshments, we had fresh rosemary and meyer lemonade with all the ingredients from our own garden. We even made these adorable duck inserts for the straws.
For our dessert spread, we had a green and yellow desert station with assorted green and yellow candy. I also made these onesies bunting to decorate the table.
Our talented cousin made these adorable, delicious, and moist lemon cupcakes with a vanilla buttercream frosting. She also made the duck toppers with white chocolate—simply amazing!
I’ve been on a macaron tear lately and made a variety of yellow and green macarons. From left to right, they are pear macarons with meyer lemon curd, meyer lemon macarons with meyer lemon curd, and finally pistachio macarons with a meyer lemon zested chocolate ganache. We painted the top of the macarons to add a lil’ pizazz!
What’s a party without some pops? We bought rice krispie treats and served them in pop form. The cake was a chocolate banana cake from Portos Bakery because every celebration needs a cake.
Finally, as party favors for the guests, we had an instant photobooth for guests to play around in the tub with rubber duckies! My cute little niece is having merry time!
