My sweet momma and best friend

My baby shower tea party in Utah was so dreamy. Although I’m the oldest of four and the only girl in my family I’m one of the last to have children. My mom has been waiting a decade to throw me this shower. I lived in England in my 20’s and my mom and I fell in love with cream tea – British scones, clotted cream, jam and of course a pot of tea. My mom immediately asked to throw a tea party for me when I was planning to head home to Salt Lake for my shower.
I couldn’t have been more excited and when I walked in tears sprang to my eyes from all of the people I love and the stunning decor. There were of course beautiful tea cups and teapots everywhere but also decor from my childhood in Germany, children’s books (I’ve always been a voracious reader) and even a photo wall my sweet sister in law created. All of the food and teas were homemade by my momma who is an extraordinary cook from homemade scones, teacakes, sandwiches to the sweetest little desserts and even veggie cups and fruit and cheese platters. It was so delicious and perfect! We only played one game that centered around baby books which was just what I would have picked but my sweet mom knows me so well that she didn’t even need to ask.
My grandmothers, cousins, aunts and friends all attended which was amazing. My sweet little nieces also came and of course my nephews showed up at the end with my brother. Being an auntie is such a big part of the reason I want to be a momma so that was incredible!
I couldn’t have asked for a better or more magical day with my family. My sister in law had just had her baby, my other sister in law is pregnant and my sweet momma spent so many hours making sure everything was absolutely perfect. A huge thank you to all three of them for creating the perfect shower and to everyone who came to support me and welcome this little babe!
