The designer of the theme – mummy Serene! We all agree she should probably ditch her stressful job and go into party planning. She propped the table with her classic picnic basket and a beautiful table runner that shouts Shabby Chic! She designed the invitation cards, name reveal cards and even had the dessert table set-up so prettily. She had everything organised in less than a week just to make sure the baby shower is a go-ahead before babyF makes a pre-mature debut. Mummy Serene added “This is the first time I’ve ever planned a baby shower in a hospital!” You Did It!
Those home-made cookies and sandwiches from mummy Sylvia were delicious! Meyer stayed for one sandwich and he went, “Wow, it’s even peppered!” and mummy Tiffany couldn’t help but went for more servings of her cookies. It’s hard work on her side with all the baking and prepping especially when this mummy is pregnant with her number 2. With a toddler, a Jack Russel Terrier, a hubby and a home to take care of, she still found time to have these amazing bakes out from the oven and into a pretty box. Definitely has her mother’s cooking genes!
Mummy Iori came with wraps and cupcakes! Busied her way halfing the wraps and serving us our lunches. She got babyF some really nice and practical gifts too. I can’t wait for the little girl to be born and fit into that outfit. Don’t worry about the messed-up cupcakes dear. They still looked lovely!
While the room was being set up, I was to be blind-folded. It was so funny these mummies even thought about blind-folding me to create that suspense. It was a really nice gesture. I loved the way the balloons livened up my room! It was so exciting my heart was palpitating not from Ventolin but with delight!
Mummy Xiao Bin was frantic when she heard that the theme was English Rose Shabby Chic. She texted Meyer and asked to borrow our duck egg Laura Ashley curtains for the baby shower! I had a good laugh when I heard about it and assured her that it really was okay if she didn’t have any flowery dress to come in with. But she couldn’t get pass herself for not trying. So, she went shopping. Thank you for making the attempt to suit the theme! I love your pastel flowery scalloped shorts!
I was told mummy Priscillia had to work on May Day! Gosh! I would really love a full attendance of my favourite mummies at the baby shower! It was a very pleasant surprise to see her through the door as she gave me her bubbly “HELLO!” She made special arrangements to change her work schedule with another colleague to be at the party! Sincerely appreciative of your efforts. 不愧是我的好 buddy!
Oh Tiffany mummy Tiffany. This is the second First of May you had to ‘work’ for my party. The first was in 2007 when Meyer and I tied the knot and you were part of the bridesmaid gang. The second was for this baby shower. You could have gone for a long birthday weekend out of the country but I had you here with me instead. Love, Hugs, Kisses and more Hugs. It meant a lot! This would be the first year we couldn’t do a birthday lunch on me. Till next year!
As for mummy Diana, she’s got a really tight schedule this public holiday. As a working mum, she would want to spend all her free time she could possibly get with her handsome 14-monther. She squeezed in a very early breakfast and rushed to the baby shower with her toddler waiting for her somewhere in Orchard Road. Thank you for making time for me!
The Thank Yous are not over yet! Three more people to thank! I cannot believe the amount of love and effort I am showered with.
How do you like this hand-made hair garland? Sarah from Poppy is a crazy, fun-loving perfectionist who never declined my requests if I needed help. She had this delivered to me the day before our baby shower. She gave her 100% with the setup of Ewan’s first month party and his first year party. Right this moment, she is already in the midst of preparing babyF’s first month party. All I had to do was to create a mood board for her based on my expectations and she will elegantly execute it to my liking. Sarah was even ready to personally direct my maternity shoot for me and Comel (a white pony I hired). Alas, my hospitalisation made this shoot impossible. If you are looking for a party planner, to set up a pretty dessert table, a bunch of beautiful flowers for Mother’s Day or even a flower-making class, you can look her up at PasarBella! Just look for the fresh smelling stall with lots of beautiful flowers or contact her here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly, I have the men behind All the camera lenses to thank. They were activated at very short notice. In fact, I am lucky to engage them during this season with weddings at a high. They are swarmed with backlogs and current projects to run. Yet, they readily made plans and worked overtime for me. I must have been quite a good friend for them to make such exceptions.
