See Inside My Gorgeous Baby Shower!

I’m 8 months pregnant – I seriously can’t believe it! We’re nearly in the home stretch, before Baby Hunkin makes her appearance in January 2018. She is getting bigger and bigger each day, and she keeps mummy up all night sometimes with her kicks. I keep joking that she’s going to come out already a soccer player (like her dad), or a dancer at the very least. But I love (almost) every minute of it, and I’m soaking up these last few weeks of having her so close to me.

This past weekend was my baby shower, thrown by my dear friends Anita and Kirsty. It was held at Hills Penthouse West Hollywood, which is a gorgeous space that overlooks all of LA – the view is just stunning, and you can see all the way from downtown to the westside on a clear day (did you catch the sunset I filmed on my Instagram Stories?). The theme was a very English tea party, with cheese and pickle finger sandwiches, home-baked scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, sausage rolls, the most stunning cheeseboards from Lady & Larder, and Sprinkles cupcakes for dessert.

It couldn’t be a proper high tea without the tea itself of course – Anita found beautiful vintage floral tea cups and saucers at Sweet Tea Party Rentals. Each set was totally unique, and all the plates mismatched – which is one of my favorite looks for a tea party. The flowers were arranged by my blogger babe Sivan (thanks so much for your help!) – which included chic clusters of eucalyptus, baby’s breath, white roses, and hydrangeas all set about the room. I loved that the space was feminine without being overly pink – exactly my style.

For my non-pregnant friends, the bartender served grapefruit cocktails and champagne (thanks to Perrier Jouet for the bubbles!), in the cutest glassware and garnished with lavender sprigs. My guests and I were pampered with hand scrubs and massages by Elemis, who also provided goodie bags with some seriously dee-lish face and body oils inside. My favorite was the Frangipani Monoi Body Oil, which literally smells of Hawaii.

There were photos of me as a toddler strung up, and guests could fill out cute cards addressed to Baby Hunkin, guessing her name, birthday, weight, and even her personality (of course everyone said she would have her daddy’s sense of humor!). Thank you so much to everyone who came and who donated to Baby2Baby. It was truly such a special day, and I’m so grateful to everyone that was a part of it!

  • One of my biggest saving graces during pregnancy and these first few months with Honor, has been having a solid group of mummy friends to talk to. Things can get lonely, even when you're surrounded by people. Which sounds silly but am I right?! It's so important to have someone who's going through (or gone through) what you are, to share your worries with, go to for advice, or just plain vent to. I was so happy to find the @peanut app, which is a social network for meeting like-minded mummies in your area. I've been using their Pages feature to get advice on everything from going back to work, post-natal fitness, and weaning Honor onto foods. I've had some amazing tips from other mums - I wish their new 'Pregnancy' page had been around when I was pregnant! If you're pregnant, or a new mummy, get on @peanut and share your tips with me! #peanutapp
