Baby Shower photos

Hello everyone. Thank you for your lovely comments on my "Oldie" Today's post is about the baby shower. Having never been to one, although daughter has, I was intrigued.
It was lovely, it took place in a beautiful room at a pub. Coffee and tea on tap (the bar was open!)and beautiful food on offer.
We played silly games like, guess the baby food, what is mum-to-be's waist measurement, a quiz that revolved around the word "baby" and the mum-to-be had to guess us all from the baby photos we took. She didn't do very well at that one! She couldn't pick out her own husband and sister! We had such a laugh. It also gave my daughter and me a chance to catch up with some of the Salsa ladies that we haven't seen for a while, they're either busy with their own children, work or grandchildren. I also include a fabulous gift that my daughter received at a recent Salsa venue. The quality of the photos isn't brilliant and the gift, all made from balloons was wrapped in cellophane.
My cake!

Some of the beautiful cup cakes
