“I won’t say what they are but we’re planning on keeping them simple yet well-thought out. I believe that names are prophetic… people speak it over you all your life so we might as well make it positive and powerful.”

The morning was spent playing traditional baby shower games such as "Guess mom’s waist size" and even included a nappy-changing competition.

The theme was simple, elegant and heavenly, with an all-white palette which included hints of gold with feathers, highlighted in the décor and confectionery display.
