Yellow baby shower

June 03, 2013  •  1 Comment

I went to my first baby shower in the U.S. in 2007 with my cousin Alex.  The US women really know how to throw a good shower!  It was a new experience for me back then, women gathering together to celebrate and fuss around the new mum to be.  Being a bit of a puzzled Brit at the time I just sat and watched as the presents were given to the mum, games were played and advice from the experienced mums flowed!

YES it might just be an excuse to have a party but having had my very own baby shower in 2009 and having been to a few since I have to say it’s a great way to help prepare a new mum.  All the mums best buddies arrive to show their support and give their tips and advice.  Everyone has a giggle and the mum to be is left with a warm feeling of support from her closest friends. In my opinion a baby shower is just what you need when you're just about to have a life changing little bundle thrown into your world!  

Now in 2013 50% of the UK ”mums to be" are having baby showers!

At the weekend I had the pleasure of co-organising and taking photographs for a close friend of mine.  The theme was her favourite colour..... Guessed what it is ;0)?

Mummy to be Claire with her yellow (non alchoholic) punch!

I got this idea from pinterest. Fill a mason jar (a few of of my old mayo jars shhhh) with loads of lemons and white flowers. So pretty!

The only baby at the shower, so you can imaging the cuddles this little cutie got!

Ok, I was debating whether to put this in but thought well it's more funny than rude and may be a bit educational too.  One of Claires friends Rosalie wanted to prepare and play "pin the sperm on the egg". Rosalie created a fantastic diagram of the ovaries and Claires face represented the egg.  20 little sperms were created with the daddy to be's head stuck on.  All the party was given a sperm, their names put on the back, blindfolded, turned around and around and then told to guess where the egg was by sticking it on the diagram!  Hilarious game and perfectly apt for a shower :)

Notice what's peeping out of Lisa's pocket!
