Springtime Baby Shower

Yes, I'm still here!  I've been so busy here with orders and getting new items ready to share that my poor Blog has been rather neglected.  You can always keep up to date more regularly on my Facebook and Twitter pages.  I've also been back in England and had a lovely time seeing family and friends and with sunshine every day, which was a bonus after the rainy Summer we've had.  As I sit here in my wool jumper with dark clouds out of the window I know winter is rapidly heading this way whilst my friends Down Under are enjoying Spring bulbs and blossom!   So when I saw these photos of a Baby Shower styled by the super talented Kate of Kiss Me Kate Events in Australia I knew I had to brighten your day with them. A while back I was contacted by Kate to illustrate some images inspired by the Bunnykins for her cousin's Shower. Do you remember the Bunnykins? I have got a sweet Bunnykins plate that I ate out of when I visited my Granny, with the little Bunnies running around the edge, so when she asked I hopped at the chance ;-)

I drew this wee sleepy Bunny sat on ABC blocks with a comfort blanket. Not knowing if it will be a baby boy or girl we decided to go with primrose yellow and a mix of greens and pinks.  To go with this Bunny I drew a running Bunny for Cupcake Toppers & Stickers.
Here are a few photos I took before sending them on their way.

For the rest just sit back and enjoy this beautifully fresh Springtime Baby Shower, which you can see more of on Kiss Me Kate's Facebook Page .

Just look at those ruffles!

The most delicious looking Lemon Cheesecakes I've ever seen!

I loved these Bunnies that I am thinking I may make some items available in my Etsy shop , what do you think, would you like them?
Moving from Spring to chillier days over here I'm busy getting some whimsical Christmas items all together, so if you are planning a party in the festive season watch this space!
Thanks for visiting and I'll see you back here soon, Hugs, Catherine x

Oh my goodness. That is amazing. I have never in my life been to a party like that and I would love to. I have never been to a baby shower, or even a hen party come to that, so nothing girly or anything. I would love to throw a tea party one day... maybe!

So well done catherine, they are lovely. I love the leaping bunnies - I saw them on your PDF, they are gorgeous!

I've decided I MUST have another baby just to I can have those invitations and a baby shower ... I've never had a baby shower - but I'm totally green with envy ... the party looks like something out of a dream baby shower catalog ... gosh I could rave about this for ages ...
