But, for today, as mentioned in today's title, it is Pi Day! It is not only Pi day, but it is a special Pi Day, It is 3.1415... I was invited to a Pi day party today, so I wanted to bring something special. Let me give you the background of this idea
While in Provo, UT with my daughter who gave birth to the tiny grandson, prematurely, her friends were giving her a baby shower. I offered to help since I was there and they asked me to decorate! So, I was excited and looked through Pinterest to find ideas. I loved this one http://www.projectdenneler.com/2012/09/vintage-book-dessert-table.html.
So, we did our own variation on her theme. One of the things she did that I loved was make little pies out of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. She didn't explain the recipe, so I figured it out on my own and thought I would share it with you. I made a batch of them and put a little quote from Winnie-the-Pooh called "Coddleston Pie" next to them. We went to a thrift store and got quite a library of children's books started for my littlest grandson for about 50 cents per book and used them as decorations. We also handed out Goldfish Crackers with a quote from Dr. Dolittle about when he learned to speak goldfish! And, we handed out little boxes of jelly beans with a quote from "Jack and the Beanstalk." (The same one that is suggested in the above link.) Since Little Adrian was still in the NICU at the time of the shower, I made little picture frames with book quotes on them and we displayed them around the room so people at the shower could see him.
Here are some shower pictures:
First you need snack size Reeses Cups and M&M minis.
