We have been celebrating the arrival of Baby McIlquham since the day we found out about her, but this past weekend we had an official celebration for both the Mommy-to-Bee and my soon to be niece!
The “bee” theme started with the e-vite we sent out months ago and because Erica and Ben have a special connection to “the bee’s knees”. We decided to keep going with this theme because although Erica and Ben are expecting a little girl they aren’t big lovers of pink and this idea naturally lends itself to more of a yellow colour-scheme, which is also Erica’s favourite colour – perfect! We rented out the main floor of a bed and breakfast here in Oshawa to hold the shower so we didn’t have to go too heavy with the decorating as the place was already quite beautiful! (We were disappointed with the catering and service at this place though, so not sure we would recommend it again).
We were so happy to have both family and friends together to celebrate this exciting time for Erica and Ben! We know they are going to be the best parents ever and going to raise a strong and beautiful little girl.
We can’t wait to meet her!
(The cake was from Aunt Audrey’s in Oshawa – it was not only cute but tasted delicious!)
