Are you planning a baby shower before the arrival of your little one?
They are getting more and more popular and, like a hen do with less Prosecco (for some!), they are the perfect way to celebrate such a momentous time in life with your closest friends. We are always on the look out for great baby shower ideas. Here are some of our favourites:
- Ask guests to bring their favourite children’s book, instead of cards, and write a personal message inside.
- Go all out girly and have an afternoon tea party with vintage china, pots of tea, cakes and finger sandwiches.
- Ask guests to bring pictures of themselves when they were a baby. Put them up on a board and see who can guess who’s who. It’s a great time to be nostalgic.
- Create a few mocktails for the mum-to-be to lively up that soft drink selection! Here’s some tried and tested recipes:
Virgin Grapefruit Mojito
Cane sugar syrup
A few drops of orange blossom water
Sparkling juice or non-alcoholic champagne
