We (being the fabulous girls I have mothers group with) have 4 girls (including me) currently pregnant with #2! 2 are due any time soon, so we decided to throw them a little baby shower. Nothing over the top and just an afternoon tea when we normally have mum’s group and me being the planner, held the soiree at my house.

I wanted to go for lemon & grey colours scheme, but had lots of trouble finding decorations in the colours, so opted for lemon, blue, pink & lilac.
Here are some pics……

I made some bunting to go above the food table, whacked some lemon ribbon around the ice bucket (complete with both non-alcoholic & alcoholic champers).

I made a lemon runner to go down our table and I have a little thing for doilies at the moment, so used some cheapie paper ones to make the table pretty! I grabbed some flowers (not from my garden, but that’s another story!) and made pretty posies and I had the butterfly & dragonfly’s sitting in my craft box, so popped them in to! Finally I added a few candles I had stashed as well!

Lastly, I made some tissue poms…..I’m not really happy with how they turned out, but they are OK for a first attempt! I also had the white Chinese lanterns laying about from decorating my brother & sister-in-law’s engagement party, so threw a few of those up to!

I have to point out now…..check out my cedar post! It had been looking a little tired, grey and yuck so another of the things I have been doing is sanding that (I’m still in the process of sanding another at the front of our house). It took 2 days to sand and I think my fingers are still vibrating! It does look beautiful now though. I had been waiting to sand the post before putting some cheapie Ikea curtains (to give it a bit of a lux feeling) and having the baby shower gave me incentive to do it!

We had a beautiful day, the kids played whilst we chatted and chatted and then chatted!
