Whimsical Baby Shower

How are we all this Monday morning? It has been the most sublime weather here this weekend, we've been spoilt with an amazing summer so far. I had one of those super productive weekends where as well as catching up with family, having a date night with the husband, and spending some time outdoors I also managed to tick a few things off my to-do list so I'm a happy camper starting off the week. Rain is forecast for the next few days and dare I say it's almost welcome in my household if for the garden only... but also cause it's a damn sight easier to sit in my office and work than it is looking out at a gloriously sunny day!
I know some of you may have seen this last week on Courtney's fabulous entertaining blog Pizzazzerie (and if you're not familiar with it be sure to check it out as it's full of wonderful parties, dessert displays and entertaining advise.) however for those who didn't, I threw one of my bestest friends a baby shower recently and today is hopefully a very timely day to share it with you, as fingers crossed baby is arriving!!! I didn't want to do the typical blue/pink baby theme as it's not really my style and as we didn't know the baby's sex and I was given free reign to do whatever I liked... well I went for modern whimsy! The entire look stemmed from the invitation I designed, and from there the very brilliant Judit Meron from Artisan cakes created all the fabulous treats you see before you. I have to say that on the day no one took the onesies from the tree as they didn't realise they were edible! But they were a hit! New Zealand brides, be sure to check out Judit's work.... it's AMAZING!! And believe me I knew that well before I'd demolished my 40th macaron!! The cute as cute photos were beautifully captured by my lovely friend Greta from Vela Images.... go and check out more of her gorgeous work on her blog too. By sheer coincidence my niece turned up wearing an outfit that co-ordinated perfectly so she had a great time being a model with all the sweets! And those gorgeous flowers you see were kindly created by Annie Oxborough from Me, Myself and I. Thanks so much to the fabulous ladies who helped me on this!
