Planning events are hard, let alone a baby shower when you’re 6 months pregnant with a full time business of your own to run.
I had been and still am an avid follower of Alice Round and Sean McLaney – their Instagram stories are hilariously entertaining but also full of nutrition and fitness knowledge. I have learnt so much from both of them over the years so when I reached out to Alice to see if she needed a hand with her baby shower, I was so excited when she said yes!
The brief was pink & girly and by god did we go to town! I wanted this baby shower to be adorned with a bed of pink pampas grass and Claire from The Flower Girl Perth was only too happy to oblige!
Alice chose a venue that she didn’t have to clean up and was near some axe throwing acitivites for Sean while the girls luncheoned. A big white blank canvas, The Sapling needed a bit pink overhaul and we did it with a big pink wall backdrop, pink dried and fresh florals and games signage dotted around the room.
Despite what you might think fitness girls love their food so we made hte grazing table a centrepiece in the middle of the room so guests could access from both sides. Full of healthy snacks, fruit, vegetables and some homemade frittata, the ladies could feast without the guilt. Unless they wanted something sweet, there were a few little treats in there for good measure!
The cake was a 4 layer pink macaron drip cake, given centrestage in front of the beautiful pink walls and enjoyed by most – who weren’t on prep! – and certainly by the parents to be for breakfast the next day!
The bar was plentiful of wine, rose & bubbles with persian fairy floss but of course there was some non alcoholic drinks for mumma to be. Virgin mojitos & fruit punch were very popular but naturally drunk out of champagne glasses to feel that little bit fancy!
A beautiful baby bath full of ice for bottles and hand rose petal frozen ice cubes gave that little something extra for guests to feast their eyes upon. It’s all in the details.
You got this mumma! But remember you’re totally allowed to pawn off the baby shower repsonsibility if you want to, if you’re tired, hungry & just want to enjoy a virgin mimosa with your friends and family without the added stress. Need some help?
