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
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.
