Word Of The Week

21 Feb

Week 8: 15th February – 21st February 2015

My Word of the Week this week is Baby, well technically 2 words Baby Shower as I had Baby the week before last.

I’ve spent the week preparing for my friend L’s Baby Shower.

Little t; her & her partners baby boy is due at the end of March.

The Baby Shower had a Library theme.
Silly me in my haste forgot to take pictures of all the little bits & bobs I made and the overall day. I do however have a couple.

The invites were done in the style of a book. The Topsy series being a favourite of L’s when she was little.
The details were on a library borrowing card on the cover page, followed by a brief ‘Once Upon A Time’.. Story asking guests to bring books not cards as gifts. Then hand sewn together to bind.

I made name tags that represented library membership cards.

We had a light lunch, followed by cookies and treats made by my friends partner and an ombré cake made by Mr S of all people! The cake topper was little book bunting.

The entertainment was based around a quiz done in teams. The quiz had different parts to it relating to babies and books/nursery rhymes, animals & their young etc.

The decorations had been inspired by Pinterest. I had purchased several children books to display around, I made pompom sheep, laminated The Hungry Caterpillar pictures, purchased mini ducks, as well as making book bunting.
Little t’s Paternal Grandmother brought some helium balloons and a Sash for L.

To end the day we all sat and enjoyed the parents to be open their gifts and as it was time to leave I had made little book worm favours from Marks & Spencer’s Colin The Caterpillars and Make a Wish Bracelets.

All in all I think everyone had an enjoyable day. Now I can’t wait to meet Little t.
