To celebrate the impending arrival (37 days to go!), one of my lovely friends organised a baby shower for me in London on Sunday so I thought I’d share some photos from the day.
Afternoon Tea Ralph Style
We met at the flagship Polo Ralph Lauren store on Regents Street which has a coffee shop and bar – I didn’t even know this was here! – where we had an afternoon tea. The best bits were definitely the sweet treats – scones with jam and cream, Ralph’s signature mini brownie, mini red velvet cupcakes and pink macaroons. I’m literally thinking about the cakes we didn’t manage to eat.. why is afternoon tea so filling!
I wore a green Bardot frill maxi dress from River Island which I love because it’s not maternity but it still fits so well! (I’m wearing a size 8). It’s also available in 7 other plain colours and prints – I’m loving the red floral version! There is a small amount of pink in the dress which matched perfectly with my pink chain bag from Mango. I found the sandals in the H&M sale just a few days ago for a bargain £5! I can’t see them online so I’ve linked a similar pair here.
Baby Shower Favour
I gave all of my guests a little thank you gift bag which had a box of Ahmad Tea and a cone filled with milk bottles and popcorn. I made these myself with plastic sweet cones from The Range and stuck a ‘Ready to Pop’ sticker on the front!
Some of the lovely cards & presents for the baby generously gifted by my friends. Her little wardrobe is certainly coming along..
