The menu for the Blessingway Curt made EVERYTHING:
Mint Lemonade (recipe in Mother Rising book)
Quinoa Salad from Girls Gone Child Blog: Curt used blackberries instead of blueberries because that was what we could get.
Chevre Deviled Eggs with Asparagus
Lemon Pasta Salad from the Mother Rising book (this was a big hit)
Avocado-Cucumber Soup (I wouldn't make this again, but it was interesting. Those avocados would have been better in guacamole)
The the cupcakes! Amy likes to garden and since gardening is a great metaphor for birth, I thought these would be perfect. Unfortunately, with the doula training the three days before the Blessingway and my lack of skill, I needed to call in some reinforcements. It is good to have talented friends! My friend Gerry has just started a custom cake/cupcake decorating business. She graciously came to my rescue and decorated the cupcakes. You can see more examples of her work on her blog.
I messed up one of the signs as I was putting it in. Not Gerry's fault! Good thing I didn't try to do the whole thing by myself!
