Liv’s High Tea Baby Shower


Event: Liv’s Baby Shower High Tea

The Brief: floral and gender neutral

Venue: My home

Olivia, my only sister and best friend is expecting her first child (and my first niece or nephew!) at the end of the month and so last weekend I threw her a baby shower at my place. She wanted something kind of low key, with good food and definitely no games. I tend to go a bit OTT on the details… of everything… so I wanted to host it at my place where I could plan it completely from start to finish. Here are some snaps from the day.
