madison’s vegan baby shower

Jerome and I celebrated our love and excitement for the little girl growing inside my belly at a rainforesty park in Currumbin, Queensland. I was 30 weeks pregnant. Jerome and my family had been secretly planning all 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 were all involved in the preparations and 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.

The second and third tiers are Nanna’s delicious vegan melting moments and yummy date slice bites. My husband Jerome bought me these cute little bottles and straws to serve the delicious pink grapefruit lemonade he made for the baby shower the night before. Everyone loved his lemonade and the sweet drink dispenser.
