Baby Shower......

Welcome to Jessica's Baby Shower.
This post is a photo overload so be warned..
Jess's baby is due is 10 weeks so Alanah, Chloe and Cassie decided she needed a party. Alanah organized it all on her own. The cake and cup cakes she had especially made for the day. The cupcake had baby footprints on them and the booties on the cake were so well made.

I made a cake as well but mine didn't need any baking.
2 dozen cloth nappies, dmmies, teddy and teething ring and you have a
Nappy Cake.
Come in and have a look at the decorating I did to make this a special celebration you need lots of decorations.

A warm welcome at the front gate from teddy and an old highchairthat I love. I did buy the wooden blockes from K. Mart they will get lots of use in the years to come I am sure. They say
Baby shower welcome.
We set the cradle up at the entrance to the veranda as a place to put all the presents...Looks good as well. Cassandra made the baby shower sign and we placed it on the music stand.
Once inside I hang baby clothes up. These clothes then went to the Mother to be, such a cute trick to use baby clothes. The letter B came out from the bathroom for the day. B for baby.
Lots of pink, white and blue as this was the colors I was going for. I told Jess I even have the house painted in the right colors. hahahah
The table setting.
Here is Jessica, Chloe is hiding behind the post. We had a 30 people here, I am loving the new open plan of this room.( the builder is on his way to get rid of the posts yeh)
Alanah also ordered these Baby bottle candles as thank you gifts..
Another decorating idea...
I had a fun time cleaning up prams, highchairs, cradles and baby gear for this day. I didn't want to spend alot of money on decorations so I just used what I had.
A great way to give that real baby feel I thought.
I hope you enjoyed sharing the day.


  1. I loved the decor - so much nicer than the pre-packaged stuff you find in the stores. I loved it all, but I gotta say the rubber ducky really was a scene stealer, but then again I really liked all the baby clothes too. What a great job you did!!

  2. How lucky is your Jess? All of the cakes are super but I really like the Nappy Cake - so clever and the clothes line is so cute! The next 10 weeks will fly by - bet you can't wait!
