My Baby Shower
This is a piece i’m really excited about sharing- My Baby Shower !! I was planning this afternoon along with a little help from my friends and wow, did it turn out amazing! It was exactly what I had hoped for and more!
The venue I chose for the event was Glebe House in Tramore (Co. Waterford) , not a lot of people know where it is but its directly beside the driving range in Newtown , Tramore. The venue is spectacular , it’s a huge old house on some stunning grounds.
There is a long driveway up to the house and sheep line the grassed areas surrounding the driveway, adding to the unique setting!
I had a photographer on the day to capture the special memories and so that I didn’t have to worry about taking my camera along for that all important blog post on the event! (ie; this one!!) The photographer was Adam Heffernan and he captured all the pictures enclosed . His facebook is Adam Heffernan Photography (click on the name to view), his Instagram is Adam Hef (again linked to name). I highly suggest considering Adam for an event if you need a photographer but ill let his pictures do the talking!
The “shower” started at 1.30 and we had guests arriving from 1.15 the room was well decked out in an ivory/gold theme with some pastel baby decorations in the mix!
When everyone had arrived Rosemary (the owner of Glebe house) set out the beautiful display of sweet and savoury food in typical afternoon tea style that we were all to enjoy over tea and chats in the coming hours!
I also got these cupcakes made from the talented Wendy Devlin Designs -facebook linked here! She made my cupcakes for my baby annoucement and they were awesome so I knew this request would be no different ! How cool are they?? If you are looking for some bespoke cupcakes then look no further !!!
In true Baby Shower Style we had games organised from “guess the baby” – where every guest brings a baby picture of themselves and I as (mammy to be) had to match the baby with the adult!!(It’s not as easy as it sounds) there was also “pin the dummy” where each person is blindfolded and has to pin the dummy on the baby’s mouth (again harder than it sounds but makes for great comedy!) There was the poopy nappy game where little parcels in the form of Nappies were passed around and the one with the sticker saying “winner // poopy nappy” won a prize , and finally there was the “baby making” game (not nearly as exciting as it sounds!!!). This was where each guest was given a piece of play doh and had to make a baby! The best baby won a prize !
There were prizes for each of the winners and a lot of laughs along the way!!
To go along with the fun we had baby shower photo props! A must for anything like this if you ask me!! They make an appearance in some of my photos on Facebook – Facebook album linked here !
All in all it was a perfect day and I couldn’t of asked for better ! I would recommend having/attending a baby shower to anyone (although it’s only for those of the female variety usually!) They’re so much fun!
