My Sister's Baby Shower - Twins!

We recently held my sister's Baby Shower. This is her first pregnancy and we look forward to welcoming two babies to the family in the coming months.

Her official due date is New Year's Eve, however we are pretty certain that the babies will be arriving by early December, if not sooner. Both bubs have been tracking along ahead of the average size, and the poor dear is suffering quite a lot.

Loren is an interior designer and has really enjoyed styling the nursery. The Baby Shower theme reflected the features of the room - and was a great joint effort between my sister, mother, Coby (Loz's best friend) and myself.

Rather than add commentary along the way, I thought i would just run the series of pics from the event - hope you enjoy!

Wallpaper and artwork from Bholu and Porter's Paints.

I purchased the Bholu Monkeys from The Infant Boutique and the beautiful, bright, unisex cotton basics are from Cheeky Chickies, of course!

Loren has chosen Stokke nursery furniture from Baby Things Kensington, Ikea storage unit and vintage Eames molded fibreglass rocker.

The Baby and Toddler Show

On the October long weekend, we exhibited at The Baby and Toddler Show in Darling Harbour, Sydney. We attended the innaugural event last year, but were excited to be invlolved this year in a bigger venue. I was also very excited to be working alongside my gorgeous pal Anne, from Czarque baby shoes. They are the most stunning shoes, created and manufactured here in Sydney, so we have a bit in common!

I really enjoyed designing the stand this year, and had some help from Mr Chicken, who built our fantastic tree display. The event also saw the launch of our new Just Hatched Collection for babies sized 000-1, including our new Rib Knit Nappy Pants!

We also had our new Rib Knit Frill Sleeve Top, which features press stud opening on the shoulder, and is accompanied by a limited edition Rosette Brooch, our little Cropped Slim Fit Pants, and our ever popular Rise'n'Shine Set, all of which is available to purchase with our new retail stockists!
Also a hit was the Cushy Monsters, that is the picture on the bottom left, although I wouldn't blame you if your were confused, as Mrs Chicken is looking a little cushy at the moment too! A BIG thanks to my photographer Carissa Little from Bella Piccolo as I had forgotten my camera, and she captured these shots on her visit!
