You may have seen this post which was about me and my friends planning a baby shower. We got lots of lovely ideas from pinterest and it helped us decide on a bit of theme and ways of doing things that we'd never have thought of.
I thought I'd share how it turned out....
Naturally there was lots of cake - I love baking cakes =)
And mini doughnuts
I was so pleased with myself over these oreo pops but I think they could have done with being double dipped in white chocolate next time.
I tried my hand at crepe flowers
My friend Erica made these super cute little hearts with everyone's name on as shower favours
Check out our balloon skills!
We went a bit crazy with the crepe paper... just look at the fish bowl!
Buck's fizz for mummy's arrival
And here she is enjoying the spread
Some more substantial food was added later, we didn't just gorge on cake all afternoon, honest
A classic baby shower game of... errr... pin the sperm on the egg / uterus
Mummy to be got it bang on, nobody else was even close. Obviously that's why she's the only Mum in our group of friends!
Unwrapping presents - cute snowsuit
We also had a couple of other games but I didn't get any photos. We made 'wishes sheets' which have a list of different wishes for the baby which everyone fills in. ie "I hope you grow up to be..." and you fill in the rest.
We also played a game we saw on pinterest called waters breaking which involves freezing plastic babies into ice cubes. The game is to see who can get their waters to break fastest by melting the ice cube and freeing the baby.
The babies were a bit scary and by the end of the night and after a few drinks, they were getting up to all sorts of mischief. We decided they didn't really look like babies and were more like freaky little blow up dolls!
The baby shower was lots of fun and luckily we had lots of people all helping each other to plan and set things up so it wasn't too stressful!
