Pregnancy Life & Style - - CELEBRATING MUM & BUB -

My sis­ter, Gemma, threw the baby shower for me, and did such a fan­tas­tic job! My de­sign brief to her was ‘Min­i­mal, but stun­ning with green­ery and white’. I didn’t want a fussy theme, as I pre­fer clean lines, and wanted the space to feel airy and light.

We didn’t have a huge bud­get – around $1000

– so we ba­si­cally did ev­ery­thing our­selves. My sis­ter hired the bam­boo arch and went to Dan­de­nong Mar­ket for the flow­ers and fo­liage. It was her first time do­ing a flower arch, but she pulled it off!

My sis­ter or­gan­ised a strip­per from Magic Men to ar­rive just as I was open­ing my gifts! It was hi­lar­i­ous. As this is my sec­ond child, it’s an on­go­ing joke with friends and fam­ily that I’m still wait­ing for a pro­posal and that I won’t ever get a hen's. So it was a baby shower turned wild!

We held a cham­pagne brunch at 10am in my home with a very small group of girl­friends.
