A Success

I am pleased to report the Baby Shower was a success and it was such a pleasure to throw

Here's my friend Kelly & I on Friday night getting things organised

We were really pleased with how we put together the presents in this hamper

(hamper £2 from a boot sale!)

I also had a go at making a nappy (diaper) cake

Not bad for a first try!

I was really pleased with how my cupcakes & cookies turned out

It was the first time they looked just how I wanted them too!

A friends mother in law is a florist so we have some floral arrangements made

(sorry I forgot to turn the picture round before loading)

Beautiful smelling Baby Powder candle

Nikki opening her presents

As well as things for the baby we put together an overnight bag for her visit to the hospital and some nice candles and toiletries

(dad got presents too, a babygro/onesie saying "Dishy like my Daddy")

And here we are playing a Baby themed quiz a friend put together for us

And my friends daughter Rianna arrived later in the day and decided to have a picnic with some of my dolls in the garden, she's such a cutie

Well i'm shattered after a busy couple of days, the house has been tidied, the washing up has been done and my mum (she put so much effort in to help me today) is asleep in the chair waiting for my dad to arrive home from holiday

I'm off to check out some blogs and then it's off to bed for me too
