How we do baby showers

A baby shower is the perfect excuse to get crafty. It’s a wonderful opportunity to make something extra special for the new arrival while spending quality time with family and close friends.

Our baby shower craft classes are fun and hassle-free too. As well as the craft materials, we’ll bring the cream tea and vintage china. Or we can arrive with cake and champagne cocktails if you prefer, with a delicious virgin version for the mum-to-be. And we’ll add the finishing touches too – bunting, fairy lights and music to create a warm and welcoming space.

Making your own food for the baby shower or holding it in a tea room? If you don’t need us to provide the food and drinks, use the code BABY at checkout to take 15% off the price. And if you’re struggling to find a venue to host your baby shower, just get in touch and we’ll do our best to help you.

    DUE TO THE BUSINESS RELOCATING TO SCOTLAND, WE WILL NO LONGER BE TAKING BOOKINGS FOR LONDON-BASED EVENTS.

    In this workshop everyone uses special pompom makers to create a gorgeous, soft and colourful rug perfect for the baby to lie on in the months before they get moving. Until babies start crawling they spend a large amount of time on the floor, either staring up at mobiles or playing with little toys as they get a bit older.  Your rug is sure to get plenty of use.
