My Baby shower on Sunday the 13th of July 2014 is one I will never forget. I am an organiser, a control freak if you will and have always been the one to sort out get togethers, birthdays, drinky poos etc. But when I told the girls back in May that I was expecting they asked if they could organise my Baby Shower…I said Yes!
I never in my wildest dreams expected my very good friends Debbie and Julie to go to so much trouble, I don’t mean that rudely, but it was just so perfect. I am hoping I can describe it to you, it was simply BRILLIANT!!
Firstly, the invite arrived in the post about 3 weeks before and it was TIFFANY AND CO style Baby Shower.
I pulled up to a sea of friends and family outside my dear friend Debbie’s house and already the tears had kicked in…pregnancy hormones.
If you love the shades and want something similar click here. We have them on the boutique in colours, which is the ontrend look for 2014, they are awesome, but not many left!
Once inside drinks were flowing (non-alcoholic for me) and the food was just to die for. In fact I ate far too much and felt ill the next day. Eyes to big for my belly and that is saying a lot when you look like the size of a house.
They really had thought about everything and in the middle of all the fabulous food which was prepared by Carol Brelsford, was this fabulous nappy cake. What a fab job and Carol only does it as a hobby…WOW!
The games on the day were hilarious and this is what really made the day. We played spot what chocolate was in the nappy….
There was a name that Baby tune, which I WON! Who knew the new Mum to be the best…my sister Susannah won, she always flooks everything….lol. Babies scans where you had to guess which body parts where showing. Finish the nursery rhymes, something I need to brush up on….whoops. Pin the egg on the ovary, I lost. Everyone had to bring a baby picture and we had to guess who was who…I won!
These came in the shape of a cupcake from my friend Mary, some knickers…what do you think?
Very sad when the party ended, it went on longer than I had expected and I didn’t leave till gone 10.30 that night. It wouldn’t have been so bad, but I had to be up at 4.30am for a Breakfast show on Radio.
I feel very blessed and grateful and those memories will be cherished forever.
What a great Baby shower with my close friends and family and yes I have kept the kickers…what a pair!!!
