Baby Shower fun at the World of Wedgwood 💙

Yesterday a group of lovely ladies and myself descended on the World of Wedgwood for an afternoon of fun and tasty treats in celebration of my very soon to arrive, niece or nephew.

The Wedgwood Tea Room is within the world of Wedgwood just through the stunning Wedgwood flagship store. As it’s Spring the whole place was brimming with floral displays, which to be honest are Instagram heaven 📷.

The whole afternoon was planned in secret so lovely Mum-to-be, Clare was blindfolded from the car park to the tea room and overcome with happy tears when she realised where she was and who she was with – special times 💕

Much to the surprise of lots of the ladies joining us, who had never visited before, the tearoom itself is decorated delightfully. The wallpaper is based on the Wedgwood Hibiscus pattern and with the golds and blues of the rest of the decor is a real interior style statement.

The place was buzzing as the Sunday we had chosen was also the monthly Fine Food And Artisan Craft Fayre, which happens on the second Sunday of every month.

There were over 50 stalls offering local handmade goods and delicious treats. This was in addition to the fantastic Wedgwood Flagship store and the new Brand Junction store which stocks sister brands: Waterford, Royal Doulton and Royal Albert products. Shopping a plenty!

The Wedgwood Afternoon Tea itself is as quintessentially British as the beautiful china it’s served upon. Fresh finger sandwiches, scones and cakes are all served with a choice of teas and the option to add in some fizz if you so wish, of course.

After catching up and filling our happy faces with delicious treats it was time for the games to begin, organised amazingly by Mum-to-be’s little sister, Jessica.

What more could we want than an opportunity to chat away about impending baby cuddles over cakes and Prosecco. A perfect Sunday afternoon. 👌

Sunny Saturday Fun ☀️

Weekends are precious and this one was no exception. The plan of action was ‘no plans at all’ and I think they always end up being the best ones.

Saturday saw an impromptu get together with my 2 best friends & their husbands (still don’t feel old enough to say that) and ended up being a classic P, P & P (not classic at all, made up yesterday). With my 2 best mates and I having a toddler each it was always going to be pretty low key, but pedals, park and pub turned out to be a pretty awesome afternoon – throw in some sunshine for good measure, happy days!

Pedals

Indi-Rose always get pretty excited when the bikes come out and we’re really lucky to have a cycle route, which is an old railway line, right from the back of our house straight to the lovely park in the centre of town.

Park

Slides, sandpit and swings in the sunshine for an hour or so was a great way to entertain the toddler bosses, and us to be honest. I just love it when the weather picks up and you can finally spend some time outside in the fresh air, really helps with the mum-guilt too.

Of course all that cycling, throwing toddlers down slides and trudging round the sand pit worked up a thirst for us parents, that it would’ve been (quite possibly) fatal if we’d not quenched. Onto the pièce de résistance of the ‘p’s – the pub!

Pub

On a sunny day like yesterday, classic beer garden weather,  it would’ve been rude not to spend at least a little time in such an establishment. The afternoon was finished off perfectly, for the parents among us, with a couple of cold ones at our local The Sun.

To top it off, not a toddler tantrum in site. We do have crisps and the blessed Ipads (not for too long) to thank for that.

Yesterday was a great example of how life is about balance – in this case balancing the little people’s happiness at the park with ours in the pub.

An ace Saturday all round – enjoyed by little people and knackered parents alike.

Good vibes only! xx ✌️
