Before I tell you about my Baby Shower zone I thought I'd show you the table we set up Tuesday evening in advance of my brother & SIL telling us the sex of the baby.....
My mum and I had both had the idea to do this so it was funny when I arrived home from work and we're both been out and brought girls and boys outfits and we going to say "which one's do you want then"!
We laid out the table with a boy and girls side (later adding some cute boy/girl playmobile figures mum had also picked up), a Baby Powder candle in the middle and on a chalk board I wrote "Boy or Girl?"
SIL really appeciate the gesture and it was a fun way to help them tell us!
So the Baby Shower... boy is this getting stressful!
Baby Showers are a relatively new concept in the UK but I love all the fun ideas America gives us and couldn't resist holding a shower for my friend and was able to pick up some fun stuff when I was in Vegas a few months ago.
I managed to find a company online and ordered some balloons... they've not yet arrived!!!!
I was able to contact the company and a lovely man has another order arriving special delivery today so I took the day off work (I mean would I get anything done worrying?!) to wait for the delivery and get a head start on the planning.
The photo's with this post show the "staging area" where everything we will need has been put in the one place.
Tonight I have some friends round to help decorate and set up what we can and then it's busy, busy tomorrow morning
As for me... I have some cookies to make and a frosting recipe that doesn't contain egg whites or cream cheese!
Hope you have a fun weekend!
