I am so lucky to be an Aunty again! My gorgeous nephew was born on the 28th July. But before his exciting arrival into the world my sister, mum and I hosted a Baby Shower for my sister-in-law Roxy. It was a nice change from organising kids birthday party to a baby shower. My brother and Roxy were keeping the sex of the baby a surprise so we decided to go with a pink and blue theme – too easy! Here are some snaps we took on the day!

This was a simple cake to decorate. I used fondant for icing and made the bunting using the Cricut.
My sister baked the cakes using my Birthday Butter Cake Recipe. She simply added food colouring to the mixture.
The table was set with a collection of China tea cups and tiered plate stands.
The sweets were homemade by us with a gorgeous collection of macarons, lemon meranigue tarts, chocolate salted carmel tarts, cupcakes and truffles.
Yummy sponge cake & custard cake pops!
Sorry not a great photo of the savoury plate. There was a collection dip cups, Mini Quiches, ribbon sandwiches, Arancini balls and spring rolls.
Delicious Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Tarts!
Each guest was give a onesie and on one side they had to write down their prediction of the baby – Sex, Name, Length, Weight & Date. On the other side they were asked to give some words of wisdom or parenting advise!
Guess The Tummy Size – each guest cut a length of string they believe will wrap around Roxy’s tummy.
Here is the gorgeous couple!
