Today it is my absolute pleasure to share these stunning images from one of my favourite photographers. Wendy Grant captured these little gems several months ago and has been hiding them away but today just in time for Mothers Day I am delighted to be able to share them with you together with some background information on the day itself 🙂
A Note from Wendy: “I captured Karen’s bump shoot whilst all the last minute supplies and guests were arriving so that was a bit chaotic! It’s the first baby shower I’ve photographed but I think these are becoming popular now and would love to shoot more.”
Here Kari (the lovely Mum to Be’s Niece) gives us an insight into the inspiration behind this gorgeous afternoon…
Who organised the shower?
Karen’s cousin Shona and myself.
What theme did you choose?
Mad hatters tea party/ Alice in Wonderland theme.
What games/entertainment did you have and who did you hire?
We had pin the sperm to the egg like pin the tail on the donkey. A Fortune Teller and Butlers in the Buff serving us our drinks!
What food and drink did you have and who supplied it?
Lethal homemade cocktails were put into little jam jars, decorated with ribbon and a ‘drink me’ tag.
Sandwich platters were from Waitrose
Cupcakes made by Shona’s friend
Sweet shop sweets bought from Selfridges
How did you decorate the room and where did you get the decorations from?
We had bunting from John Lewis, balloons from Oscars Den, and we arranged flowers. (Some were bought from Westfield shopping centre)
Thank you so much to Wendy & Kari for sharing these stunning images with us. The guests must’ve has the most amazing afternoon!
