No Storks. No Games. No Cutesie Baby Stuff.

Ever since Miranda forced Charlotte to serve fried chicken at her baby shower, I've been a big fan of serving the unexpected for a ladies' luncheon. So, while tea sandwiches do have their place, I opted for a fun, southern-inspired menu, featuring messy pulled pork sandwiches, for my oldest friend's baby shower. For present opening, we plated a quintet of Paula Deen-worthy dessert bites. And since, as Charlotte pointed out, "These people are buying you expensive gifts, they're going to want to see some baby stuff," we gave out seeds of baby's breath as party favors. SATC: a lifetime of party inspiration.
