Few weeks ago, my husband and I organised a baby shower for my sisters-in-law. After Amir's batman themed birthday held in February, I can't stop doing something creative (rasa cam tangan gatal nak buat something), so I organised this baby shower for them specially for their family and friends. First, lets look at the invitation:
Bun in the Oven e-invitation designed by Almiroz
It's an oven yang comel inspired by the mass of oven illustrations available on the net, so my husband and I chose one design and changed it a bit, came up with this simple love in an oven.
Some of the props I used as deco include a mini oven (my mom's) topped with wooden letters by Melissa & Doug, apothecary jars, Almiraz diaper cake 2 and Almiraz Diaper Cake 3. Actually I wanted to put a mini kitchen or those girls toys of oven as deco tapi tak terbeli la pulak. I thought this will do.

Eau Claires for the chosen theme – I love the blue…it’s just perfect!
Pre-printed labels for cookies designed by sweetalmiraz
Used colourful bears my mom bought when I was younger as deco
Full set up – but need to improve more on the ceiling deco – and patut alih meja ke tepi kanan sikit
My husband and I also created a photo wall where guests can goof around and take pictures as rememberance.

We also had a corner for an on-going game called 'Guess The Pegs' where guests can guess the number of pegs in a jar. Senang je game ni. I actually wanted to hold another game but I expect it's a bit a difficult to gain the guests attention especially when most of them had a lot of catching up to do. There are a lot of baby shower games available on the net for inspiration.

I made the Mom To Be ribbon badge –tapi tak berapa kemas

The answer was 71. I had two nearest answers. First was Mardhiyah with 70 and the second winner was Shiela with 65 pegs. The prizes were baby bottles filled with Jelly Beans and Kisses, with baby safety pin and the oven label as deco.

For the food, my mom and I ordered all the sweet delish from Aunty Noni (you can search for her at Mars & FamilyHouse FB page) but the other important food such as pulut kuning and mee hoon was made by my dear Cikdah. Yumsss...!….
My mom ordered these….soooo yummy
Cuppies – but not Wondermilk sponsored by my sis in law, and cupcake toppers designed by sweetalmiraz

I would say this party is better than Amir’s birthday coz I did not invite a lot of people and the set up table was not too crowded as Amir’s birthday hari tu……Hope to be better in future…..I just lovee doing this!
