Vintage high tea {baby shower}

My poor neglected blog.... I have been so busy that you have slipped by the wayside...
BUT, today I have an exciting project to write about!!

One of my gorgeous uni girlfriends is pregnant with her first baby :)

I have managed to convince her that not all baby showers need to be full of baby associated decorations and games and she is allowing me to throw her a vintage inspired high tea!

As she is a fellow designer we have been working on this together but I have a couple of surprises up my sleeve too ;)
Today we met at her Mum's place, where the event will be hosted to scope the area and talk details.

As mentioned, the theme is vintage inspired, with a secondary theme of "apples" as that is what my friend and her partner call the baby as a pet name while in utero. This fits in perfectly with our summer sorbet colour palette too!

Am sharing the inspiration board here today....

Family photos

...with a twist!
Not your average family photo shoot, the gorgeous Linda from shoot4u photography and I hatched a plan a while back to have my family dress up in 1930s inspired garb and go out on location.
Our shoot was last Saturday and the results have taken my breathe away.......
I am sooooooooo happy to have these BEAUTIFUL photos of my family that I will TREASURE for the rest of my life and I hope my children will too :)
If you are lucky enough to live in Perth I highly recommend you let Linda work her magic for you :)

Here are just a few of my favourites. I am already saying I need more wall space to hang them all!
