For some unknown reason I've been sure I'm going to be early with this little bubba and so even though I had invited people to a baby shower I was sure that I wasn't actually going to get one as I thought I would have the baby in arms already! This is mostly because we've moved recently and everyone was telling me that they went into labour early when they moved etc etc - not me!
Anyway, it did mean that the couple of days before the baby shower I was somewhat stressed trying to get it all together but it was the most beautiful day! I"m going to share some photos and also note where items/places came from, as I found the cutest party shop and also have the most talented friends who are starting up little businesses that I want to honour!
The dress I wore is a religion dress I got from ASOS. It's not maternity just a couple of sizes bigger than usual. To be honest, it's an oversized style anyway so I could of got away with just one size bigger but I couldn't be bothered to send it back and exchange it ha so doubly oversized it is!
Now, have you heard of pretty little party shop? If not, sorry - I may of just found you a new favourite store! They have beautiful products for parties, it's where I got the balloons, ivy, cups and milk bottles for the party and I could of got so so much more, and it's all a reasonable price.
A baby shower is nothing without friends and my friends rallied round me to make this day perfect; two of which have recently started bakery businesses. Curiously Caked is manned by first time mum Chloe, who among being mother and wife, runs and owns her own cake business and had the time to make the cutest little cloud biscuits for the event! With little messages on each biscuit, everyone raved about them!
Simply Cake is owned by a friend of years Saira, who has mastered the art of making beautiful cakes - she made my reveal cake but also the beautiful floral cake you see at the top - I can't recommend them both enough, they listen to your requests, offer options and the final product not only looks beautiful but also tastes insanely good.
I hope this inspires you if you're planning your baby shower, even if just a place to find where to get the best cakes or decorations - I truly loved mine and Wolfie was so spoilt by all his new aunties! So thank you everyone!
Now to get his clothes all sorted and get nesting! Just 4 weeks left guys..
