Yesterday we celebrated my baby shower, it was such an amazing day. I had a beautiful afternoon surrounded by family and friends.
I actually forgot to take a photo of the gift table but I was worried that it was going to collapse it was that full…
There wasn’t really a theme except for ‘All Pink Everything’ , lots of pink, flowers and girly touches to the day.
Complete with a pink candy bar, pink cookies, cupcakes and macarons, personalised napkins, water bottles,chocolates and lolly bags.
I love event planning and was certainly in my element co-planning the day with my mum.
Special shout out to my amazing Mum Sue, Stepdad Glen , my cousin Megan, Aunty Linda & Mother in Law Cathy for making the day possible.
The shower was held at my in laws house as they have the perfect party space. We decorated the area with pink and white. It started at 1pm and so we catered lunch for everyone, platters of assorted rolls, dips, cheeses, fruit, vegetable sticks, quiches and party pies/sausage rolls etc.
The dessert/candy bar table all went between attending guests and take home treats.
I had seen on Pinterest months ago the little champagne bottle favours and just had to have them! My mum bought me 3 slabs of 200ml pink minchinbury champagne bottles and I ordered the tags on etsy.
The tags read:
“Little Miss Angelucci is coming, the time is near…. When you get the big news, open your bottle and send a cheer!”
All of my guests took a bottle home and were asked to toast our baby girl on news of her arrival. I am hoping to see some selfies posted when the time comes.
It was 31 degrees in Melbourne yesterday and as it was the first real hot day of the season it made it so much worse as we just weren’t used to the heat. Everyone still seemed to have a nice afternoon and catch up.
I had ordered my dress from ASOS Maternity and absolutely loved it! I felt beautiful wearing it. I had my make up professionally done and wore a flower crown to make the look extra girly!
I love that everyone got involved!
I opened my gifts a little late as I was so busy trying to chat to everyone and mingle. I am absolutely blown away by everyone’s generosity. Too many gifts to name, Little Miss is soooooo spoilt! Our lounge room floor was covered last night and it took us 3 hours this morning just to sort through them and work out where they will live. Thank You!!!
I am very much looking forward to reading through the “Wishes for Baby & Advice Cards” later this week. I know there will be tears so I’m preparing myself for it.
I had a Polaroid camera set up with a guest book and I am so glad I did as we captured some beautiful photos, so many kind words. I truly do have an amazing sisterhood of women around me.
I could go on and on about how fabulous my day was but I’ll end it here, with a massive Thank You to everyone that attended. We truly are so grateful to have you all in our lives.
The countdown is well and truly on now!
