Billie Faiers’ Baby Shower

So many people have been asking about the lovely set up we did for the beautiful Billie Faiers from TOWIE’s baby shower, so we thought we’d share a few pics and behind the scenes details with you…

The mum to be had planned a garden party spectacular, but true to form, the British weather ensured that the party had to take place indoors. We gave Billie a fab dessert table of delights – and our dinky donuts and strawberry shakes certainly went down a treat with Billie, Sam and her guests, and we were thrilled to see a pic of mum-to-be and sister with their shakes in OK! Magazine last week.Image

Guests were treated to customised favour bags with a message from the expectant mum and dad to be with our signature sweet and salty pink marshmallow popcorn.

Billie had wanted something pink and yellow to compliment her old fashioned afternoon tea so we gave her a retro sorbet coloured table with pink lemonade, charming pink favour, shot glass strawberry blancmange desserts and a retro styled pink pick and mix buffet that made it no secret that Billie was expecting a girl. We constructed an arch of satin ribbons as a backdrop for the dessert table. Billie later tweeted us saying “thank you for making my baby shower so beautiful” and the table was featured in OK! Magazine, with photos of mum-to-be looking showing off her bump and glowing in a wonderful white lace minidress, alongside gorgeous sister Sam Faiers, dad Greg and best friend Lucy Mecklenburgh and Fearne McCann and friends and family.

We wish Billie and Greg all the best with their new family and the rest of the pregnancy and to find out more information about our baby shower party packages and bespoke baby shower service visit our website or get in touch with a specialist baby shower party planning consultant!

In honour of dads & dads to be…

As it was Fathers day yesterday, what better way to celebrate great dads and dads to be by taking a sneaky peek into the lives of some fabulous expectant celeb fathers at their baby showers.

Recently we’ve seen celebrity fathers splashing the cash to celebrate their new arrivals and organizing and hosting extravagant baby showers for their partners, a role usually reserved for mums, aunties and best friends.

This week, former Frasier star Kelsey Grammer organized a beer-filled baby shower bash for fourth wife Kayte Grammer in a Chicago bar. Guests had mocktails and champagne Not only did he organize the shower, he even indulged in baby shower games with guests.

“Kelsey and Kayte were so cute together–he helped her open every gift!” “He was by her side the entire time. He was totally into it, everyone seemed like a big cute family.” a source said.

Just a month ago, we also saw dad Scott Disick throw second time mum-to-be Kourtney Kardashian one of two baby showers in an upmarket restaurant in NYC, who partied with guests (then disappeared to drink beer at the bar with mates!). Could this be a new dad-to-be trend? Admittedly, every man isn’t the baby shower type but it’s great to see dads-to-be spoiling the ladies in their lives and so excited about their future bundles of joy!

We hope all you new dads and wonderful dads-to-be had a lovely day yesterday, and for those dads thinking of showering a soon to be mummy with baby shower love (I mean, it’s only right she gets of pampering since she has to experience the pain of childbirth soon!), logon to where we’ve got tons of ways that you can celebrate a new arrival, with complete party packages for the lady in your life at home or work from just £14.99pp…

California Dreaming…of having a Kourtney Kardashian Style Second Baby Shower

We have to admit,we were a tad disappointed when Kourtney Kardashian held a present free,

game free baby shower a fortnight ago. So we were very happy that our faith in Kardashian extravagance was restored at her second baby shower last week. Yes, SECOND baby shower.

In California where the sun shines, money flows, and

pregnancies are always perfect, it didn’t at all seem extravagant for Kourtney to have a second (arguably superior) shower, that truly outdid the first in every way.

This time planned by her sisters, with a 90 strong guest list of friends and family, guests arrived to pink and white decorationsa traditional pink party for her impending baby girl in a colour scheme akin to our Pretty in Pink Baby Shower, enjoyed by Michelle Heaton & celebrity guests Katie Price & Sian Welby. Not only that, Kourtney’s guests  dined on sandwiches and sushi, played games, entered with piles of gifts, and left with favour bags full of goodies. A pretty good party in our opinion, but seriously, two baby showers in a fortnight? Only in California…! But as they would say in humble (?) Essex English – we have to admit we’re well jel.

Thinking Pink for your Baby Shower with star style? Then you’ve got loads of options to help you celebrate your new 

baby girl like a celebrity:

  •  a pink afternoon tea style baby shower as enjoyed by  Victoria Beckham – a bespoke variation on our Midsummer Tea, with teatime treats served on a mixture of pink vintage china
  • a Pretty in Pink baby shower like Michelle Heaton with candy stripe canopy and colour coordinated pick and mix sweetie bar
  • a pink Midweek Mini baby shower, as seen in the Daily Mirror ‘s Celebs on Sunday magazine – with cupcakes and cocktails

This weekend, Before Baby hosted a surprise baby shower for singer & ‘I’m a Celebrity’ Jungle Queen Stacey Solomon. The  mum of one, who is as renowned for the voice that got her to the X Factor finals as much as for her bubbly Essex charm got together with more than 30 close friends and family for a private baby shower at her home to celebrate her new arrival.

Stacey’s been determined not to let the sex of her baby slip, so we kept the theme neutral and fun with our exclusive but ever-popular Girls Playground shower  – the funfair themed party was perfect for fun-loving Stacey and her lively friends and family.

Stacey couldn’t hide her surprise as a crowd of her friends and loved ones, balloons, bunting and the aroma of hot fresh popcorn greeted her on arrival, whilst inside, the glowing mum-to-be and guests sipped on our signature Before Baby alcohol free Lynchberg Lemonades in personalized bottles,  as well as had their pick of beautiful red cupcakes by La Tentation and popcorn. A full pick and mix sweetie bar, loaded with marshmallows, candy canes, rock dummies,  and personalized lollipops were there for Stacey and her loved ones to tuck into – a great mid-afternoon pick me up (or should we say sugar rush?) – perfect for providing everyone with a little bit of a boost to kick start the bumper selection of baby shower games we had in store.

A traditional baby clothes decorating activity eased guests into the fun, but rest assured in true Before Baby style it soon got very messy (and noisy!) with a naughty but nice obstacle course forcing Stacey & guests to test their motherly skills, speed and agility. Finally, make up artist nibras beautified Stacey’s bump with a beautiful design of a candy stripe cupcake. Stacey was showered with gifts from her loved ones, and was clearly glowing and very excited about her pregnancy .

We’re over the moon that Stacey enjoyed her day so much and wish her, Aaron, Zachary & family the best of luck.

Jessica Simpson’s Kid Friendly Pink & Yellow Baby Shower

This week, singer and mum-to-be Jessica Simpson welcomed her impending new arrival with a “dream” pink and yellow baby shower.

Stars including Jessica Alba, sister Ashlee, and Grays Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo joined Jessica and family and their children joined together to welcome a new baby girl. Jess’s baby shower planners jazzed up a traditional pink baby shower with accents of yellow, reportedly having beautiful yellow tulips and balloons. Jess wore a baby blue dress to celebrate  the pregnancy curves that she recently showed off nude on the cover of US Elle magazine, and tweeted about her happiness about her “dream” baby shower.

Dream showers aren’t just for celebs, and here at Before Baby we like a bit of the non-traditional, so if you’re thinking of having a baby shower and want something a little different, why not opt for our red candy stripe funfair theme Girls Playground shower (we’re running one for a certain celebrity mum-t0-be next week), or our latest new addition, Cookies & Milk Midweek Mini Shower. Both parties both have neutral colour schemes, and offer a bit of a change from your traditional blue or pink themed shower.  They’re perfect if you don’t know the sex of baby, and even if you do, your guests will love to fill up on mini ice creams or funfair inspired delights from our hot dog stand and pick and mix bar. Plus, just like Jess, our shower games are great for big girls as well as little girls and boys, and can be tailoured to meet your exact guests requirements including special kids party bags and even petite afternoon teasets. We guarantee our yummy menus & nostalgic nibbles will go down a treat with young and old so that everyone can join in the party….

This weekend we were honoured to host a beautiful baby shower for the delightful presenter Sarah Cawood. The perfectly petite former Live and Kicking host is currently expecting a baby with fiancé Andy Merry. With a guest list that included Sarah’s mother, new mum Michelle Heaton, (who just had a Before Baby Pretty in Pink baby shower in December) & fellow new mum Angellica Bell (both already looking like yummy mummies), presenter Caroline Feraday and producer Gina Lyons and other close friends, the ladies took part in an amazing afternoon of games and Before Baby fun.

Sarah was glowing and full of energy, so we kicked off with Guess Mum’s bump size, followed by a round of babygro decorating, then took a break for beautiful blue red velvet cupcakes by Mama Mae’s plus a blue pick and mix sweetie bar full of sweet delights and sipped blue lemonade from personalized milk bottles.  Finally, it was time to unleash our ever-popular relay race where guests tested their speed and skill with a range of naughty and nice baby related tasks. Guests took home amazing hand made cake pops by I cake you and our signature wooden heart tokens. Sarah tweeted: “I had the loveliest day today! Despite transport nightmares and crappy weather, all my girls showed up and partook 🙂 Thank you @beforebaby…for a great day! Beautiful decs, lovely food, FUN games…Sorry we were all so rowdy and it was a bit squished ;). Xxx”

We’re sending out our very best wishes to Sarah and bump and thank-you so much for our lovely flowers!
