Baby Shower

I don't have any actual photos of the party as my 'official photographer' will send me the piccys soon.

Claire made these most amazing invite cards

Andrea kindly opened up her house to welcome my friends and family. She organised really fun games to play and prizes. My first two boys did not have a baby shower and having a third child it is so nice to have some fuss made over him. Andrea as well as many friends made a glorious spread of food for us to enjoy half way. Then our little man was very spoilt with gifts from everyone. I was so overwhelmed and touched at my friends and families generosity and thought they had put into these gifts. It was also nice to have some new things for this little man. We have been so lucky with friends handing over their clothes etc. we have not had to buy anything.

When people left I handed them a party bag to say thank you for coming - because I really wanted to contribute to the party and let people know how much it meant to me they came and showed their support and love for this new one to be.

Here is the bags all done up...

I put x4 jelly babies, a 'dummy' (made using a minties biscuit with a life saver and marshmallow in each side to represent a dummy) and also a bulb for them to plant. There was a note with the bulb which said 'please plant this bulb and watch it bloom just like our baby boy who will be here soon.'

From the bottom of my heart Thank you Andrea, Claire and all other secret contributors to the party organisation and to friends and family who came bearing smiles, laughter and gifts.

Looks like fun! So, does that mean I should have another baby? Cause I never had a baby shower for any of them! Lol! Your dummies look excellent!
