9 weeks ago tomorrow I gave birth to my second beautiful child, Arthur John Lukowski xoxo
I know this is not a kids party, however I enjoy planning everything... I am a self confessed planning maniac so really on top of kids parties I am more than happy to plan baby showers, hen's parties or even weddings - I planned my amazing wedding in Thailand all from my computer in Brisbane and the day could not have been more perfect!
The baby shower was hosted at 35 weeks pregnant and little Arthur arrived three weeks later xoxo
For this baby shower I was inspired by a beautiful book I bought for Bella called 'If Kisses were Colours' by Alison Jay. It is the most beautiful book about a mother's love for her child written for children and illustrated so beautifully. The picture of a baby in a crib with a rainbow above made me want to cry (must have been those pregnancy hormones ;) So I decided this would set the tone for the day. As always I used the wonderful ladies at Mio Cupcakes & Cakes and again was not disappointed! I sent them a picture of the invitations I had created around the theme and they created the cake from that - it could not have been more perfect. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed planning the day and the day itself of course :)

|Blue and Turquoise Pom Poms and old fashion paper chains|
|These were Martha Stewart brand Pom Poms that you have to assemble yourself.|
|Fresh scones, cream, strawberry conserve and fresh strawberries for a lovely morning tea affair.|
The day was a laid back morning tea style affair with no crazy games except for 'Stroller Derby' which is basically a baby trivia game. The rest of the time was spent just having time with all the important women in my life including my amazing two year old daughter, Bella xoxo The day was simply perfect!
