Baby Shower

One of my friends is due to pop in 6 weeks so we thought it would be a nice gesture to arrange a baby shower. An American concept which gave me an excuse to get the crochet hook out and 300g of Sirdar Snowflake Chunky. A simple pattern consisting of a starting chain of 75 and then half treble crochet stitches until it reached the desired size. I love this pattern for a baby blanket as its quick and easy and best of all crochets up fast so you look like a speed hooker….*Ahem*…in the nicest possible sense.
A Baby boy was expected so I chose blue colour ways changing at the end of each ball (made it easier for hooking on the train commute to work)

This wool has a delicious softness which is very very squidgable!

My friend and owner of CakesbyBeth did herself proud with a blue themed desert table and a monster theme. I was far too busy eyeing up the cakes to take a shot of the full table but it featured a cute Cyclops monster on top of a lovely lemon cake

An Array of Lemon cookies both daisy and Cyclops themed – this tray was the Daisy option and have some marvellous Cake-pops…or should that be LOLLY CLOPS!

(you’d think they would be a cup cake on a stick but no…more of a cake truffle coated in chocolate – mmmmmm)

The theme was completed with a ‘Happy Hatching box’ to post some notes to the future parents/baby and some fresh flowers – Excellent work!
