Baby shower

Helsinki, 7 degrees


With this shower may your new baby feel the warm welcome, that is being expressed by all those who anxiously await his or her safe and healthy arrival. You're excited and we're delighted your little ones on the way.

On a sunny April Sunday, I was surprised by my closest friends with the best baby shower I could ever have imagined! As one of my friends is moving abroad, they had disguised the baby shower with an invitation to a farewall brunch. When I arrived to local restaurant Bro, I was surprised not merely with a huge dragonfly balloon, but also a table filled with the lovely company of my beloved friends! The brunch ended up including stunning spring weather, good food & drinks, but also games & gifts. As you can see, I was overwhelmed by the kindness of my friends - the presents were so plentiful that I was left speechless! One present even came from the other side of the world, where one of my dearest friends is living. Again, a day that left this mother-to-be tearful of gratitude! This was a day that I'll remember for the rest of my life - my deepest thank you to everyone involved!

Yhtenä huhtikuun aurinkoisena sunnuntaina minut yllätettiin maailman parhaimmilla vauvakutsuilla! Koska yksi parhaimmista ystävistäni muuttaa pian ulkomaille, vauvakutsut oli naamioitu läksiäisbrunssiksi. Kun saavuin paikalle ravintola Brohon, minua odottivat ison sudenkorentoilmapallon lisäksi myös pöydällinen rakkaita ystäviä! Brunssi sisälsi upean kevätsään, hyvää ruokaa & juomaa, mutta myös leikkejä & lahjoja. Kuten näet tässä alla, häkellyin ystäväni kiltteydestä - lahjasaldo oli niin iso, että se jätti minut sanattomaksi! Yksi lahja saapui paikalle jopa toiselta puolelta maapalloa koska yksi parhaista ystävistäni asuu USA:ssa ja hän oli lähettänyt lahjan juuri vauvakutsuja varten. Taas sain kokea päivän, joka toi tälle tulevalle äidille kyyneleet silmiin kiitollisuudesta! Tulen muistamaan vauvakutsut loppuelämäni ajan - sydämellinen kiitos kaikille osallistujille!

  1. I've only been to the one for one of my nieces. Attendance was expected to be low because how far away family lived, so EVERYONE was encouraged to attend.
