B is for… baby shower, boy, blue, bunting, bunnies and brunch!

… and I am hoping the parents- to- be name their precious bundle Benjamin….

Actually I am only joking about the name ! 
{ But as I love alliterations I do harbour secret hopes!} Bunny in the oven

Jokes aside, what do a stylist and a photographer do in their spare time, and on a public holiday ?
Answer… they host, style and photograph a baby shower!

A friend and relative of Vanessas’ recently found out she is pregnant. They live in the States and before returning last month Vanessa offered to host an impromptu baby shower for her so she would have a quick opportunity to share her exciting news with friends and family.

We literally put this shower together in 2 days! 
( Thank goodness for Woolworths and In Good Company– my two favourite shops, and never more so when things are last minute)

Between Vanessa and I we have a collection of bunnies ( see Vanessa’s beautiful collection on The Nina Say Cheese Blog) so Peter Rabbit seemed the obvious choice for the theme, which we got at the always well stocked In Good Company. I love bunting and fortunately had a few metres in blue, along with runners and blue ribbons, and voila our decor took shape!

I “styled” the Woolies food using the pretty Peter Rabbit props etc and to quote a friend, ” Taryne knows how to make shop-bought-food look good” and another remarked, ” I love the detail of the jugs of juice with pretty labels!” Vanessa took the pictures using a specialised select focus lens ( which I am crazy about) and the mom-to-be was blown away !
