So if you didnt see on my social media, I celebrated my baby shower last weekend. And as my mum and sister managed to pull off the perfect blogger baby shower I had to share it with you. There were so many little surprises and nice touches it would be rude not to shout about it.
I had said I didn't want too much fuss, originally planning on just having a few family and friends over to my house. But as my house renovations are still ongoing we switched the party to my parents house. And there was some fuss made! There was a little bit of a pink/purple theme as I am having a girl but nothing too over the top, it was all perfect. We spent the first hour chatting and eating. We just had a bit of a party buffet, sandwiches, crisps and that sort of thing. But it all went down a treat! There was of course some fizz for the non pregnant ladies, and we made Elderflower Fizz as a non alcoholic option, it was yummy. And I got to catch up with friends and family I don't see often enough.
Then it was on to some baby shower fun and games. The 2 games my sister picked were perfect. First up guess the song. There were 16 songs all with Baby in the title. And from a short snippet of the song we had to guess the name and the artist. I didn't win! And then there was a who knows Mum best quiz, which was also fun. Although I struggled to answer some of the questions myself so hats off to my Mum for probably knowing me better than I know myself. And with it being a blogger party there had to be some selfie props on hand. My sister made sure everyone got involved. Even my hubby when he popped back to pick his Mum up.
Finally it was cake and present time. We were so lucky to be gifted so many lovely things from our friends and family. Baby Calter is already one spoilt little girl! But myself and my guests were super spoilt when it came to cake. Although I had been very specific about wanting cake, my mum and sister did me proud with the main cake, pictured above. Isn't it stunning! It was made by Jem from SweetJemsBakeryCheshire, check out her facebook page here. I can assure you it tasted as good as it looked.And my brother in law's girlfriend also made me some amazing cupcakes to go along with the main cake. I love her cakes, she's super talented and they were so cute!
To top off the perfect afternoon my sister even did small favours, so everyone got something to take home. They included a little candle gift with a small note. The note saying to light the candle when baby is born to spread the cheer.
I can't thank her and my mum enough for pulling together such a perfect afternoon. I had such an amazing time at my Baby Shower, and now all there is to do is wait for Baby Calter to make an apperance. Then she can enjoy all her presents, and I can enjoy some actual fizz.
