Well, its been a while between drinks here on the blog – quite literally – as I’m excited to share that I am expecting my first in September! To celebrate, my gorgeous friends in my hometown of Perth threw the most divine baby shower when I came home to visit. And not only are they the funniest, smart, supportive, gorgeous, laugh-a-minute types (seriously, just spend one night in an empty room with just a helium can and lose 6 hours of your life in hysterics #truestory), clearly they are uber talented, creative and also very, very good to yours truly.
We were lucky enough to have one of those stunning, warm winter days – that golden glow casting a magical light over a pretty verandah overlooking the vineyards at Entopia Wines in the picturesque Swan Valley on the outskirts of Perth. The girls went with a citrus and fruit theme – based on those funny fruit comparisons they give you when you’re expecting – the ‘this week, your baby is the size of a lemon!’ to help you visualise just how tiny your bub is, despite feeling like you’re the size of a house and that surely there must be triplets in there. I digress. Knowing how much I adore a good tablescape, the girls set up an afternoon high tea set up – with the glossiest lemons for place settings, vintage napkins and delicious teas to enjoy in between a cheeky tipple. The girls strung 100’s of pears through the beams so they were suspended over the tables and around the balustrading, while our Miss Bunting Big Balloons added an element of fun. And then there was the food – there was no outside catering for this motley girl gang of control freaks – no, no they made it all. Including those perfectly symmetrical macarons and delicious naked cake, made by Nat. I mean really – talk about setting the bar pretty high! Cue a glorious, relaxing afternoon just yabbering away and catching up – it was absolutely perfect, and just what I would have planned for myself.

Thank you to my girls Nat, Ivana and Stacey for making me feel so loved and special and creating a perfect afternoon I’ll never forget! xx
