My Baby Shower

My BFF hosted an amazing baby shower for me last weekend with a little help from my Mum and other friends! I had the best time with all my nearest and dearest helping to celebrate the impending arrival of Baby C. 

All dressed up and ready to go
We had a lovely afternoon tea with gorgeous vintage china and yummy M&S cakes and food.. It took me all of 5 minutes to spill cream down me ! Typical. 

Now, those that know me know I am a bit of a control freak when it comes to events, I found it very hard to not ask questions (well impossible, I asked a lot and cancellation of the shower was mentioned,oopsy) However I can honestly say all angles were covered and it's just how I imagined it to be. All the little details were thought of and it looked just lovely.

How cute are these little milk bottles??
We even had lovely fresh flowers everywhere!

Our gorgeous China, being re-used after our wedding

All my Favourite sweets- I obviously took these home to finish off (in one night)


 Everyone filled out my baby book with guesses of the weight and date of baby c's arrival, anyone that mentioned October or an extra big baby are not in my good books... OVER 9LBS!!!! If that happens, I'm blaming you Pat!! I loved reading everyones wishes for the baby, most involved laughing at Mr.C's expense- which I loved and he found funny when he had a read at home.. 

We were well and truly spoilt by all our friends and family. Thank you so much to the lovely hostess and party planner Jade and for everyone that came along!! We love you all very much 


Baby C is one lucky baby to be surrounded by such loving Family and Friends...

  5. Ahhh this post looks as beautiful as the baby shower was SJ!! It made me excited for mine!
    You're such a super yummy mummy already! Xx

  6. Your baby shower looked lovely. I could do with those lollies right about now. My sister is only starting to plan mine .... I've asked her to stop but she insists! Hope that doesnt mean I'll be stressed out on the day.

  7. Shaz- You should still do one and just get all your friends to do it when you see them- great excuse for another get together.

    Thanks Hayley- my friend did very very well. I don't feel that cute, or cute in the way a whale might feel cute!! The dress is an asos maternity one, Lovely dress but a pain to iron, I think it had its debut and will now be put back in the wardrobe!

    Lucie- I can't wait for your shower, get those invites out!!!

    Camielle- THe lollies were amazing,I snuck out with a few..I am sure your sister will do you proud. I was supposed to plan my sister in laws but bubba was 6 weeks early so we didnt get a chance !!

    Thanks for all your comments xxx
