Mateo´s Babyshower – A blue & white Party

Hey my dears, today I´d love to show you some impressions of the babyshower for our babyboy Mateo. The theme of the party was blue and white that´s why we decided to celebrate in a Greek restaurant this event. The party took place on the 14 of July and this time I wanted to have just my three closest friends around. For Fabienne´s babyshower I invited more people, but since the most of us do have kids, we were as much as people like back then three years ago. Celebrating with kids is different, but its so much fun and we really had a great time.

The Greek restaurant Taverne Sokrates is located at one of the Danube Islands and was the perfect choice for our celebration because of the blue and white interior décor and the delicious Greek food. The dress code was also blue and white of course. Also this time we ordered delicious cupcakes by Cupcakes Wien. But this time we decided to buy two already available sorts instead of ordering special ones like we did it for Fabienne´s baby shower three years ago. Both sorts cocos and cocos-straciatella were very yummy. The party decoration was organized and a gift by a lovely friend, but I can recommend you Etsy and Amazon if you are looking for great, cute stuff. I definitely prefer Amazon, because of bad experiences with some of the products I bought at Etsy. For Fabienne´s first birthday and baptism I bought lots of stuff at Etsy and especially the handmade presents for the guests (jewels and cutlery) were of a bad quality, what I learned afterwards. The quality of the party sets was okay.

This time I bought light blue earings for the guests by Asos. What´s the perfect present for expecting parents? Gift cards and wipes and diapers in my opinion. Simply ask the expecting mom what she would need. Already back then, when I was pregnant with Fabienne I preferred wipes and diapers and didn’t wanted any clothes for my babygirl. Well not all guests respected this back then, but this time we got lots of gift cards and one diaper cake. Apropos diaper cake my colleagues gave me a wonderful diaper cake too before living for maternity leave and a gift card of a high value, that amazed me, I really appreciate this. By the way this reminds me to post a throwback pic on Instagram. (You’ll find me @naomella_ivi.i if you want to follow).

Are you a fan of babyshowers? Did you celebrate one for your kids or have you ever organized a babyshower either for yourself or a friend?
