“A baby fills a place in your heart that you never knew was empty.” – Unknown
The weather was perfect for a long leisurely drive to my next event. Lots of singing happened on the journey…it’s a shame cars don’t have triple glazing as I’m sure when I stop at traffic lights the cars next to me speed off with earache. I arrived safely with an earache of my own haha.
This was most definitely the most extravagant baby shower I had ever seen. I was absolutely blown away when I arrived at Redworth Hall. Vinni’s family own the Cairn Hotel Group and they had recently bought this beautiful hotel and had been renovating it. If you haven’t been, it is definitely worth a trip to indulge in a scrumptious afternoon tea or a leisurely lunch. Their 1744 restaurant presents the most delicious dishes.
When I entered the great hall I knew immediately who had done all of the room dressing and flowers…Fifth Avenue Florists from newcastle. The room looked spectacular!
I was set up on the stage ready for Vinni’s guests arriving. She had arranged for me to have a room to get ready in which was so lovely.
As I played on the stage, waitresses brought around some beautiful looking canapés as the ladies all chatted with each other. I did some Facebook live streaming of me playing, so if you head to my Facebook page and scroll down to this date you’ll be able to watch 🙂
The atmosphere was so light and excitable. Baby Shower games were played with gifts being handed out, before desert was served, and there were ballerina’s performing before Vinni & her husband cut the cake.
The cake was beautiful. The cake cutting ceremony was really interesting. The ladies all lined up and each fed Vinni a piece of the icing from the cake. It’s symbolic and not something that I have seen in the english culture but I thought that it was really lovely. Vinni’s husband joined the party for this part of the day. It was really nice for him to be involved as baby showers are typically ladies only.
It really was a wonderful day. Vinni looked beautiful, as always 🙂
