Keeping with the baby theme I wanted to show you some pics of the wonderful baby shower my sister organised for her friend, Helen. The wonderful Katharine, of Peachey Photography, was there to capture the day, and she also arrived laden with cakes and beauteous flowers. A team effort resulted in the most gorgeous spread and a special afternoon full of bubbles, laughter and love…
So pretty! A vintage-inspired spread.
A pistachio and lemon cake made by Katharine and decorated with fresh flowers by my own fair hands.
A kitsch addition of Babycham bottles dotted around the place.
A VERY kitsch addition of the traditional American nappy cake that I made. If you haven’t seen one before, it’s made of lots of rolled up nappies with goodies hidden inside.
We used the appropriately named Bonne Maman jars to display the pretty flowers.
The beautiful mother-to-be, Helen.
An easy way to decorate a room is to fling bunting from one side of the room to the other. Follow my bunting tutorial to make your own.
My little sister, Amy.
My big sister, Juliette.
My mum, Claire, holding the champagne.
The ring test!
Surely the best present of the day.
