A little surprise
Baby shoes and cakes: Baby showers are a trend from the USA that have become common here. Friends of the soon-to-be mother are invited to bring gifts and play all kinds of games about babies.
When the stork appears with increasing frequency among a circle of friends, baby showers can start to get tiresome. As an alternative, Linda had the idea to organise a refurbishment day for her pregnant friend Anna who wanted to make the guest room into a nursery. Linda called her closest friends together to give the bare room a make-over and turn it into an enchanting nursery. The renovation was planned for the morning, the unveiling for Anna in the afternoon followed by a small party.
The new design of the room was a surprise for Anna”, explained Linda. “But the basic design, colour selection and patterns we used were not. We talked a lot to her to find out how she imagined the room would look. She also set up an online pin board where she collected pictures, colours and patterns that she liked. We looked at that to figure out the look that she wanted for her nursery”.
