The first question is…
What is a BABY SHOWER?
A ceremony, a get together, a party that tells the mother to be how lucky she is to be fostering life within her and how much she is loved and cared for by her closest of family and friends!
I feel privileged to have such wonderful people surrounding me in their circle of love that I am going to miss this bump so much!
5th February 2018, MONDAY – Finally the much awaited day was here… My Baby Shower! Undoubtedly the most beautiful way to kick start my week. My ‘team of angels’ was all set to leave no stone unturned in making this the most perfect baby shower I could have imagined!
MORNING 9:00 am : As I sat in my car all excited, collecting and carrying my outfit, jewellery, juttis etc. to Aarushi’s residence (Aarushi Oswal Make up Artist) to get ready for my big day, it suddenly struck me. The feelings and emotions that I was experiencing, were not unfamiliar. A little more pondering and I realised… I was reliving my moments as a bride!
I arrived at Aarushi’s studio unsure as to what my expectations should be (just like 6 years back!). But my aspirations were quickly transformed into reality and my beautiful fairy tale begun…
AFTERNOON 12:00 PM – I arrived back home all smiles, to be received by my family and my lil angel for a Photoshoot at Home by GAURAV SETHI. The magic of his lens never fails to surprise me! What more could have I asked for…
AFTERNOON 1:00 PM : Next thing, was the main event – the party! My hero, my sister in law, Megha Garg, the brains behind the party, along with her team – my super creative bhabi and friends – was all set to dazzle me and shower me with her love as I arrived escorted by my husband at THE HYATT, Ludhiana!
Perfection would be an understatement! Each element had been taken care of with so much affection and detail that one did not have a choice but to be simply mesmerised.
Most gorgeous venue – HYATT POOL SIDE, a throughly captivating decor in soft pastels, mouthwatering food, super fun games and the best of friends!
Here are some pictures to inspire you in case you are up next!
