A Hot Air Balloon themed Baby Shower


Today I held a baby shower for a lovely friend. Some of my very creative and talented friends and a couple of lovely new faces arrived to celebrate the imminent arrival of Meriels little one. This was an event that required cake, bunting and balloons!

I fell in love with these concepts and decided to run with a hot air balloon theme. This turned out to be fortuitous as Meriel has a pasion for the Fornasetti balloons.

I made a layered white chocolate cake with buttercream frosting and white chocolate decorations as I detest the flavour of fondant and modelling chocolate has ensured that I will never have to use it again *happy dance*.

I purchased some fabulous balloon biscuits from a very talented Nikki of Toute Sweet and my adorable friends Jo and Sandra provided all the glutenous deliciousness (scones and sandwiches).

I made the hot air ballons out of modified Ikea lamps and tea sets and manufactured some miniature bunting and voila! A pretty way to spend an afternoon.
