Alot of cake.. Alot of tea.. Alot of love..

When my beautiful friend Ligre found out she was having another baby, I literally jumped at the chance to do a baby shower for her.. Knowing she was having a little girl helped theme the party (especially with lots of splashes of pink!!).. It was a cosy rainy afternoon which was the perfect weather for multiple cups of tea and lots of cake!! 

I designed and made these sweet little invitations which were wrapped in a gorgeous floral paper.. Each guest was asked to bring their favourite tea cup which ended up being a great talking piece on the day!

For the decorations, I continued the colours of the invitation papers throughout.. At the entrance there was pink and white pom poms across the door and little knitted slippers on the door handle.. As you came in there was  one of my favourite bible verses written on a blackboard plus other special baby things.. I also used my daughters antique pram as a place to put all the presents..

The food and drink tables were decorated with chevron fabric, hanging streamers, bottle vases with roses and other quaint little touches..

We had several different types of cakes to satisfy everybody's taste buds.. The main 'tiara' cake was chocolate mudcake, there was Lemon Ricotta cake GL, Cheesecake GL, Raspberry and white chocolate crumble cake, Carrot cake and banana muffins with honey/cinnamon icing.. We also had assorted biscuits, a fruit platter and a cheese platter.. For the teas we had French earl grey (my favourite!!), English breakfast, Camomile, Peppermint, Chai and Raspberry tea.. as well as hot chocolate, water and 'Preggatinis' (peach iced tea)..

As I wanted it to be a relaxing afternoon mingling, we did not play games.. So instead we had a table set up with 'Words of Wisdom' for baby Ward and 'Decorate a alphabet letter' for her to learn her ABC's..

Each guest got to take home a little 'Thank you' bag which had a pedicure set and pink toned nail polish in it!!

It was a beautiful afternoon celebrating a lovely lady and her little bundle.. It was so warming to watch a lady who does soooooo much for everyone else to sit down and receive the pampering for a change!!
