At the end of next month, I'm due to become an Aunty four times over! I'm beyond thrilled. I could be an Aunty a 1,000 times over and still be as excited that a new baby is joining the family. Racheal, my sister-in-law and mum-to-be, is looking so radiant at 32 weeks pregnant, and last weekend we helped celebrate the upcoming birth of her baby boy! Racheal's sisters thought of everything for her baby shower, and I'm thrilled to share some of the details with you...
Firstly, what's a party without a cake! This gorgeous cookies and cream confection was the centrepiece of the party table, and we all admired it for a few hours before cutting into it (such a shame to cut into such a pretty cake though!)...and yes, it was as delicious as it looks. This lovely was baked and decorated by Kelly's Cake Creations.
To compliment the cake, Kelly also made these delicious vanilla bean cupcakes. Each of the cupcakes were individually decorated with baby-themed toppers. Such attention to detail was ooohed and ahhhhed over by all of the guests...and yes, they were yummy too!
So, not only was Racheal treated to the most gorgeous cake, and cupcakes...Kelly also created a batch of baby-themed sugar cookies. They were cooked to perfection, and seriously good to eat...
...but by far, my favourite of the cookies was these little bunting numbers...cute huh?!
Zoe and Tracey decked out the party area in a sea of baby blue and white. The decorations they selected were simple, considered, and just perfect...
As time came to leave, we packed up little take home bags of blue and white lollies...my hubby may have snagged a whole cup full of milk bottles! lol
We had such a lovely afternoon with Racheal; chatting, playing games, eating yummy foods (of course), and showering her with gifts. Why do women always oooooh at the sight of a onesie? Who am I kidding...I was probably the loudest. Thanks Tracey and Zoe for putting on such a fabulous baby shower.
Congratulations Racheal and Nathan! We can't wait to meet our nephew and cousin...and to find out the name you've chosen!
What do you enjoy the most about a baby shower? Aside from the mumma-to-be (of course), for me it's all the little details.
