A little afternoon tea for a little miss to be!

My little girl is almost 8 months old (photos of the mini stylist soon, I promise!), however before she came into this world, I celebrated her impending arrival with my closest family.  I put on a small afternoon tea at our place (my husband kindly made himself scarce)  to allow the guests to see the nursery (and it meant that at 7 months pregnant I did not have to travel!)

I kept things simple with a non-alcoholic punch, champagne & sparkling mineral water for drinks and my family help provide sweet and savoury nibbles.  We used simple white fine bone china with a silver detail and served food on white platters and serving stands.  I kept the decorations sophisticated (white pom pom decorations from Papier D’Amour) with just a little hint of “baby” – cute mini singlets on baby white coathangers formed part of the main display…and a little singlet greeted guests at the door.

I asked guests to leave a tip or trick for my husband and I…or just their best wishes.  It was just lovely reading through them together later in the evening after everyone had gone home.
