This was one of the most special events I've planned- My Baby Shower! I know it’s not the norm, planning your own shower, but I had so many ideas as to how I wanted it to be so I decided to plan it myself (with the help of my two special people, my mom and sister).
I had already found out that I was having a boy by that point, so I knew we were going in the blue direction. But I did know that I definitely didn't want a typical baby blue and white shower, so I decided on apple green with just enough blue so guests knew I was having a boy. Being early May, I thought it a good idea to plan an outdoor garden shower so that we could all enjoy what was left of the warm autumn sunshine.
Breakfast is my all time favourite meal, especially a hotel breakfast buffet, where my husband never fails to be amazed that I'm still eating long after he is done. I wanted to re-create a hotel style breakfast for the shower, so I decided on a breakfast baby shower.
|We used giant teacups as the centre pieces filled with little flowering plants. Each teacup had a cute rhyming baby saying and little baby stuff like dummies and little blue booties.|
|I printed photos of my husband and I when we were little in black & white and we used these on the tables and on the buffet.|
|We used some of these huge martini glasses filled with green apples as centrepieces to alternate with the giant teacups.|
|Place settings with a seedling favour for each guest.|
|The hot breakfast buffet. We had a little toaster for guests to toast their choice of bread.|
|There had to be cute food signs!|
|Mini watering cans, and little silver prams! Cute!|
|Lotsa types of tea.|
|I asked my husband to come join me for the present-opening part of the Shower. I had some special surprise presents for him too...|
|I did hand painted matching 'Daddy' and 'Junior' sneakers. Take a closer look below. My husband loved them! He wore them the day I went to hospital to deliver our son.|
|The gorgeous cake, by my lovely sister of Nabeela's Bakeshop!|
|My Moms, a huge me & my sister Nabo.|
