A Baby Shower for my Sister-in-law

Last weekend I held a Baby shower for my sister-in-law at our home.  It is not a typical Swiss tradition, but I thought why not? I’d felt bad that I could not  do it when she was having her first child, so this time I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity.

We decided to make it a surprise party for her. So instead of telling her that she was going to have a baby shower, we simply asked her and my brother-in-law to join us for dinner!!

I’d planned to have a girls-only party, but since I knew very few of her friends, I decided to have a “Family only” gathering.

So after deciding on the date, I researched some online websites where I could buy the party materials to decorate our home. After a lot of searching, I found this , this and this.

I bought a pretty tableware, a banner, honeycomb balls, balloons, paper plates, cups and napkins and a few gifts. Mike and I had so much fun decorating our home.

We made Cheesy garlic bread for appetizer and for main course yummy enchiladas. For dessert we ordered a customized cake from this bakery (Trust me it was really yum!!).

The best part of the evening was their reaction to the arrangements as they entered our home. It was a real treat to watch their surprised faces, full of smiles! Well, it was all worth the effort we put in! My Sister-in-law found it hard to believe that we’d worked so hard to make her feel special!

I loved hosting this special day for my sister-in-law and  can’t wait for the arrival of this sweet baby into our family!

Cheers,

Madhurya.
