"An Elly Baby Shower"

My Thai friend, fondly known as Pear to all of us and me organised a baby shower for our mutual friend, Tengku Eliza, who was expecting her second child. Since we were not sure what the baby's sex is (at that time),  I decided on the theme colour of green and yellow. We had arranged everything from the party favours, games to be played, gifts for games, food, cake, cookies and decoration. I also painstakingly hand made the pom-pom rosettes from tissue papers to be hung as part of the theme.
I had a Dear Baby card made for Eliza as memory keepsakes. These cards were given to the guests and they had fill up the cards with "good" advice for the future baby. All in all, the baby shower went well and we had fun with the games. I guess all my hardwork paid off.

I also contributed a cake, cupcakes and butter cookies for the party. The cake was chocolate with vanilla filling and a coating of belgian chocolate ganache. The cupcakes were vanilla bean flavoured with vanilla frosting. The cookies were made in the shape of elephants in the same theme colours. There were also vanilla bean flavoured.

Even though Eliza had hoped for a baby boy, her second child turned out to be a baby girl. They named her Nur Elea. She was born on the 24th of February 2015.
A few photos of the rosettes for the deco, gifts for the game, party favours for the guests and the Dear Baby cards for Eliza's keepsakes.

Both Pear and me, satisfied with all our hard work!

 Congratulations again, Eliza on your baby and may she bring you more happiness and joy!
