On Sunday November 4th 2013, Jerome and I celebrated our love and excitement for the little girl growing inside of my belly at a rainforesty park in Currumbin, Queensland. We were 30 weeks pregnant at this point. Jerome and my family had been secretly planning all of the amazing details of our high-tea baby shower picnic for the few weeks prior so I was extra excited to see what had been organised and prepared. I was so grateful that they all were so involved in the preparations and that they were so dedicated to making it ever so whimsical. Jerome was constantly on the phone delegating tasks to my Mum and Nanna as they became secret squirrels in the quest to create and host the perfect vegan high-tea baby shower... and of course, it was absolutely perfect and so so sweet and beautiful. I was so appreciative and couldn't believe it! So, since uploading our photos to the Veggieful Facebook page, I have had a number of you asking me for more photos and details of this amazing event. So here it is! Enjoy Jerome's beautiful photography!
Beautiful styling with delicious savoury goodies made by my Mum. The recipes for these savoury treats are hidden in our party eBook.
More delicious vegan savoury goodies made by Mum. These recipes are also in our party eBook.
Yummy sweet goodies made by myself and Nanna. Top tier are my basic vanilla cupcakes found in our recipe section. The second tier are Nanna's delicious vegan melting moments and the third tier are Nanna's yummy date slice bites. The right hand photo are the cute little bottles and straws Jerome bought to serve the delicious pink grapefruit lemonade he made for the baby shower.
Nanna's pretty tea cups on the left to serve with tea (obviously hehe). The right photo is Jerome's sweet drink dispenser he bought for the baby shower containing the amazingly delicious pink grapefruit lemonade he had made the night before. He had frozen some of it in sections so that it remained cold throughout the day. Everyone loved it!
How cute is this cake? Mum ordered a vegan cake specifically for the baby shower... how sweet! It came with lots of cute little cupcakes decorated with pretty dummies.
Our cute little tea and lemonade table. So sweet!
Me opening presents on the left and cupcakes made by Nanna and I on the right. The pink and white striped cupcakes are our basic vanilla cupcake recipe found in our recipe section. The others were simple orange and vanilla cupcakes made by Nanna.
Oh my gosh these were amazing. Nanna made these delicious puff pastry cones filled with chocolate, custard and strawberries.
Everyone eating delicious food and sitting on the picnic blanket.

Lovely Nanna on the left in her cute little apron. On the right: Jerome made this cute tea box to hold the tea bags for the baby shower. He built it himself, painted it and hand painted the word 'tea'... how amazing!
