A diversion from Umngazi posts and pics (they will be back!) I have been a busy bee lately, hence lack of communication via my blog… one thing has kept me occupied has been organising and preparing for Elaine’s baby shower which was on Saturday. Thank you so much to all who helped and all who came making her special day a happy and successful one. Jeanette took fabulous photos which are on her Facebook page. I took only a few …
My normal choccie cake, this time of three layers, iced with buttery icing and decorated with bunnies and fresh white and a few pink gypsophila, plus three miniature roses (the last on my bush) .. the theme for her shower (Instagram pic)
What a pity I didn’t take a photo of the 55 metre long bunting strung up all over the place creating a pretty festive feel. I had fun making it 🙂
I wish I could share Jeanette’s photo of Elaine’s priceless expression when she opened my prezzie …. Murgatroid the Moose ! Elaine’s babe-in-tum is known as baby Moose 🙂 A moose themed shower seemed rather dull, as they are particularly unattractive and cute pictures etc are few and far between !!!! BUT hallelujah, I found one at the laFede stand at Kamers Market a few weeks ago. She was the last one according to her maker .. number 20 of 20!! Quite unique !! I am sharing laFede’s Pinterest photo ..
I wasn’t going to take any photographs of Elaine opening gifts as Jeanette had the photography under her wing, but I couldn’t resist capturing Robyn’s little one year old, Georgia, getting more and more excited as each prezzie was opened ..
Mackenzie had fun crawling up and down the step with Georgia giving a helping hand, or a gentle shove !!!!
Below are a few pics I took the following day of some of the simple flower arrangements we had scattered about
