Fresh Fruit Tartlettes…

I had so much fun coming up with delicious treats for the DIY Network Spa Baby Shower. Focusing on lighter fare, I created a menu that would keep guests satisfied without being overly full. Because let’s face it, no one likes to be stuffed while being pampered. So smoothies, citrus fruit bowls and cucumber crostini, among other delectable items, made the cut. And because we love
