RAINBOW BABY SHOWER
7 FEBRUARY 2016

We put together this "Rainbow Baby" shower for my dear sister Heidi. 

A “Rainbow Baby” is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.  In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. My sister lost her beautiful little baby girl, Ariska, on 30 April 2014, she was just 13 months old.

So this was the perfect theme and such a special occasion for us all!

We decorated the eats & treats table with a white tablecloth, a giant rainbow backdrop, the new baby, Aldrich's name in rainbow alphabet letters, gyp (my favourite) in glass bottles with rainbow coloured water, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in a red frame, rainbow stack boxes, a rainbow baby onesie garland, striped paper straws, rainbow rosettes, food labels and rainbow triangle bunting.

The eats & treats included rainbow salsa & nachos, rainbow fruit kebabs, cake pops with rainbow ribbons, chocolate brownies sprinkled with rainbow sweeties, lemon meringue tartlets, a beautiful and delicious rainbow layer cake  (thank you to my best friend Linde!), rainbow sweeties in an apothecary jar, rainbow hard candy lollipops for the children, rainbow salad bowls, a cheese platter with a selection of biscuits and a rainbow vegetable platter with guacamole, sour cream & hummus for dipping.

My favourite was the rainbow crostini which included roasted Italian tomato & mozarella, roasted butternut, feta & honey, baked brie & caramelized onion, cucumber & cream cheese, blue cheese & fresh figs, Calamata olive tapenade & Ricotta, smoked salmon, creme fraiche, capers & lemon as well as mushrooms, thyme & goat's milk cheese crostini.  It was delicious (even if I have to say so myself) and pleasing to the eye! :)

We also served a selection of rainbow inspired drinks, red wine, mango juice, orange juice, white wine, a blue "Fish Bowl" cocktail, red grape juice, rose wine and rainbow fruit infused mineral water.

Thank you to my husband Ian & my mom Estie for all the help on the day.

A special thank you to my daughter Bianca for the delicious chocolate brownies and the beautiful rendition of "Over the Rainbow", it had us all in tears. :)
