Baby shower fun!

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to spoil my cousin silly. She is expecting her own bundle of joy this month so we were hoping she'd get through the baby shower in one piece. Fortunately all went well and I do believe she had a great day!

We went for a birds an tree's theme and had some super gifts, games and snacks prepared. We had a basket full of cute and cuddly clothes, handy trinkets and fun toys. Instead of a diaper cake, we had a diaper stork to bring the baby some much needed nappies. A finger-tree to commemorate this day and all the loving aunties that made it possible, plus a suitcase filled with words of wisdom for our little baby boy. We used baby pictures of the aunties as a banner to decorate our room and then used it for a guessing game. It provided for great fun and great decoration!

Of course there was also a cute and yummie cake to celebrate juniors soon to be arrival. I put all my love in to making a baby block inspired cake. It consisted of six layers of vanilla cake with prune filling and sweet and sour icing. As cake topper I used a small wooden ducky piggy bank. Not only did it look great, but it would also be juniors first ever piggy bank :)
