Love Corinna’s wrapping ideas!
Macarons — there’s something very luxurious about these meringue-based French confections. And if you’d like to hand them out as favours at a wedding or other special event, you’d better make sure the packaging is as sophisticated as the treat. Try one of these four elegant ways to wrap macarons without hiding the sweetness inside:

Saturday June 15th….. A baby shower for my dear friend Val. Val is the cutie that is pretty in pink, with sis Christine, who put on a darling party! I made the ombre tufted cake, complete with handmade edible baby shoes atop the smallest tier. All of the guests made a scrapbook page for the baby book, each with a specific theme, ‘baby girl’ ‘Valentines’ etc. so so cute. Val picked 3 of her favorites and the winners received beautiful gifts!
A sea of pink gifts were so stunning we barely wanted her to open them:) Baby Tinnely will be adorable in her new wardrobe.
All were treated to a tasty Italian style lunch. We left the party with a pretty baby pink nail polish favor as a reminder of our fun afternoon.
