A Baby Shower for my bestie

On Saturday 8 June I hosted a baby shower in my home for one of my best friends, Natasha. She is expecting her second baby in less than a month, and will be one of the lucky mama’s with two under two 🙂

My Tashi is not one for a fuss and likes to keep things simple, but I really wanted to make the day special, and with limited time on my hands for planning, buying and setting up I am ever-grateful for the kind collaborations of POSH events – another beautiful Natasha, who plans, sources, manages, sets up and breaks down all of my events. It was my first time collaborating with, (but not my first time using)  balloon extraordinaire; Taryn, from Mad Hatters Party Shop in Ballito.

As Tashi is having another surprise we don’t know if its a little blue or pink bundled up in her perfectly round belly, and so we opted for a very classic white, gold and fresh green leaves look and feel.
The pictures really do speak for themselves. Natasha and Taryn put together the most perfect display, and the donuts were sponsored by Krispy Kreme Ballito Lifestyle store.

Apart from the decor set up, balloons and the donuts, I then filled the food table with the following:
– a cheese board with fruits nuts and biscuits
– Philadelphia cheese board
– Marscapone cheese board
– Caramel popcorn
– Pastel de Nata (sweet treats) from Food Lover’s Market
– “Oh Baby” party shop decor
– Champagne
– Tea and coffee station

Other family members brought the following to bring the event to life:
– decor items
– A beautiful cake made by Baketique
– Quiches from Sage Restaurant Salt Rock
– Sandwiches
– more bubbly
– juices and water
It was the most beautiful morning, filled with laughs, spoiling for Tashi and blessings for a precious new bundle on the way.
