Tea For Two Baby Shower for Twins

I love baby showers! I said to myself, if I am having one, I like a tea party theme full of white and gold. 




When my mother-in-law told me she would throw a baby shower party for me, I immediately asked to be involved with decorations and food. It's just something I love to do. With all the idleness of being pregnant, I'd like to put my hands and creativity in use since it has been a while since I did something.


We were on a tight budget with a little amount of time so we did all we could and all we already had on hand. We bought the tea cups at the thrift store. $12 for 22 pcs! DeAL!


Sweets bar was provided for the guests. I whipped up a simple white cake with, with vanilla frosting topped with marshmallow fondant. 


...and angel cake with meringue topping


Vanilla petite-four with raspberry jam because its a tea party





pearly white and gold jelly beans are my favorite decorations.


When you don't have much time in your hands, make some mini cucumber sandwiches! 

Pregnancy is a difficult stage in a woman's life. I thank that someone who invented this tradition called baby shower.


For a moment, I forgot the feeling of pains, worries, anxiety and discomfort.

 

Those feelings turned into laughter and thanksgiving from the special people around me.
Me and my Mom  (mother in law)

Friends and family who were there to support me.I am very thankful I met these wonderful women from different walks of life who encourage me in many ways. Each one of them has a special place in my heart.




It was a simple and sweet affair, a celebration I will never forget.
