A Gender Neutral Baby Shower

I have the best Mother's Group in the WORLD!!!  Just sayin'.

One of these gorgeous mums is having another baby very soon, the first one of us to have a second.  And we all feel like it's our own baby on the way!  So of course we had to celebrate and what better way than a child free, girls only, high tea and lunch affair?!  It was a really wonderful chilled out, chat filled and wine filled afternoon... here are some of the deets...

Our hostess had just moved into a new and very beautiful house and was happy for us to take over.  We tried to keep things very simple as the mamma-to-be is pretty fuss free and chilled out.  We just piled the dining table high with yummy savoury snacks on high tea stands and vintage platters.  Loryn Loves' collection of stunning tea cups and saucers brought some colour and glamour to the table.  And you know I like my fresh flowers... they really transform a pretty looking space to an ah-may-zing tablescape.

We didn't want any games so we each printed a picture of ourselves as a baby for the guest of honour to have a laugh at!

Of course I'm all about the dessert table and this was no different... we just kept it very minimal and neutral.  The vintage wooden crate created the perfect riser for the chocolate sponge and chantilly cream cake I made.  Topped with silver plated blueberries and a glitter Oh Baby cake topper.  I made some mini cupcakes with matching berries and (edible) silver plating.  Another friend made some oreo cake pop balls which were yummo!!

The kraft goody bags complemented the colour of the wooden crate and I made little floral thank you tags, attached by mini wooden pegs.  Inside each was a grown up version of the chocolate slab I blogged about at Easter.  All finished off with fresh flowers and a little kraft paper bunting... just right.
