Regular readers of Kid Magazine will have seen my beautiful baby shower in the December/January issue. It was the most wonderful day for me and such a wonderful way to celebrate my upcoming entry into motherhood with my family and friends. I couldn’t help share it here as well and tell you a bit about the people who helped make it happen.
I decided early on that I wanted a hot pink and bottle green theme. My favourite colour is pink and so whether we had a boy or a girl, pink was going to be a big influence! I also wanted a colour I don’t normally use a lot of and green just jumped into my mind. I carried the hot pink and bottle green theme through our nursery so stay tuned for pictures of that. I love bright colours and lots of fun so the pom poms on the clothesline, confetti filled balloons and super fun oversized balloons were the perfect decorations.
Now on to the wonderful people who helped make the baby shower happen. Firstly, I had Sam and Lara from Honey Lane working their magic to style my backyard into a pink and green dream. Through the whole process, the two ladies were professional and so fun to work with. They knew exactly what I wanted and created such a beautiful event. From the pom pom clothes line to the drinks station, kids corner and the food styling it was perfect!
Second was the lovely Cara from Cara Loren Photography who captured the day. Cara was so relaxed and I didn’t even realise she was there photographing me half the time. The sign of a brilliant photographer! The kids loved her also and she was so natural with them and able to take some of the most beautiful photos. I just love her photography style.
Finally I loved the craft kits that the ladies at Kiddie Create put together for me. The kids were kept entertained making door hangers for the nursery. They loved getting involved in making the little gifts, the mums loved that the kids were entertained and I loved watching my bubs cousins and future friends having a blast being crafty.
I couldn’t have asked for better weather and wouldn’t change a single thing about the day. In my mind it was absolute perfection, just right for my perfect little bubba.
