My sister Rosie & her husband Jason are expecting their first baby in August. We couldn’t be more excited for them as they begin their journey towards parenthood. Becca, one of Rosie’s best friends from childhood, offered to throw her a baby shower & asked if I’d like to be involved, of course I jumped at the opportunity to celebrate this very special mum-to-be.
Becca has a really big heart & often volunteers her time, talents for sewing & crafting plus her resources to make things with Mum’s & the community. We got together a couple of times & thought out some amazing crafts we could all do together, to make Rosie & the baby some really meaningful & lovingly made gifts that we could all be a part of.
Quite honestly I just offered up my home & provided some cake & drinks! Becca had an itinerary & it all worked out a dream. I thoroughly recommend her to run your baby shower!
Firstly we had some baby themed games: Guess the chocolate bar (melted in the nappy), Guess the Baby Food, Guess the number of sweets in the baby bottle, Guess the Girth (of the bump) & of course guesses for the sex, weight, birthday & name of the baby. Rosie & Jason didn’t & couldn’t find out the sex so it’s lovely to have a surprise come August!
We then had a time of tea & cake before moving on to our crafts.

It was amazing catching up with the girls, some of them we haven’t seen in such a long time. Lots of catching up, nattering, making & smiling. Lots of lots of cake & lots of paint & Mod Podge!
It was a great opportunity to get the two Grandmother’s together too! Love them, they’re so excited to meet this precious bundle.
Wishing my Rosie & Jason all the love in the world for this next exciting adventure.

Huge thanks to everyone who came, joined in & made it such a special day for Rosie. A big thank you to Char who lent us the bunting & vintage crockery. Thanks to Becca, without which we wouldn’t have had a baby shower with a baby crafty theme. We all had such a lovely afternoon. Thank you for being an amazing co-host.
