I decided to go with a light green and pink theme as those are the nursery colours and I think they look so sweet together.
What the table looked like before some food and drink were added.
Table with some treats, a bust cake and some cupcakes (made by my aunt's neighbour) on some home made cupcake stands
The tissue pom poms I made for some decor. They got a nice compliment or two!
Some books in the theme colours (Anne of Green Gables suffered at the teeth of one of my sweet kitties many, many years ago)
Some prizes for a couple games we played
And the diaper cake that I made for them with a few baby essentials tucked inside like shampoo, baby powder, stretch mark cream, wash cloths and socks. I forgot to take closer pictures of the turtle on top that I sewed out of extra fabric from the nursery.
Another turtle shot - turtle templates are from here. The little guy was my first-ever sewing attempt! I'm quite happy with how he turned out :)
So all in all, it was a success! I was in bed 9pm that night though, I was pretty pooped. But 25 adults fit on my main floor comfortably and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Next stop is the baby coming!!
*Thank you to my mum and cousin for giving me these pictures, I didn't have time to snap any pictures by the time everything started!
Have you ever hosted a large amount of people in your home - how did it go?
