Using some inspiration found here and here I decided on some decoration ideas for the shower, all fitting into a blue and yellow theme for her new baby boy. If you'd like to know how I made some of the items, I wrote some posts about the process of making a baby bouquet, a fabric flower corsage and a tutorial for making fabric baby bunting.
On the day, I was in charge of making the place look festive while two of Mandy's other lovely friends and her mum made food and cakes. They did such a great job and I literally spent all afternoon eating! Mandy really enjoyed her day and loved all her little surprises. It was so nice being able to spoil our friend. :)
On the day I failed to bring a camera with me (fairly typical). Luckily Mandy's husband Daniel is a great photographer and he took some snaps of the detail for me. Thanks so much Daniel!

It was so much fun making all the bits and pieces and decorating the room and tables. It would be such a fun full time job! (sigh, if only......)
Here are some other pics from the day:
