Beautiful Baby Shower

What: Baby Shower | When: February 2019 | Where: Kalm Kitchen Café

We love hosting special events at Kalm Kitchen Café, and even better when it’s for an extra special person! Pete and Lara from the Kalm Kitchen events team called on some of our favourite suppliers when we hosted a baby shower for a close friend in our Guildford café.


The colour theme for the day was an easy choice when we knew the new arrival would be a boy. With exclusive use of the upstairs area, we turned this cosy space – available for private hire – into a party setting for the celebration. Everyone was on board with styling it up ready for the surprise. Pete (many secret talents – one of them calligraphy)) hand drew messages on the mirrors around the room. Hannah from Hannah Berry Flowers provided an array of beautiful flowers including pretty winter snowdrops, and a subtle pop of blue with some fragrant Hyacinths. Ellie at Milk Street Kitchen made the most amazing cake adorned with yummy candies, fruit and shortbread, while Bubblegum Balloons created a cloud of blue and white balloons which sat over the cake table.

Blue for a boy

Just 4 Linen supplied some of the small details such as pastel blue table linen, and the entire, pretty set up was captured in photos by husband and wife wedding photographers Kat and Ash at The Springles. They even managed to get some shots of the mummy-to-be’s beaming smile as she arrived.

Naturally there was a party tea laid on, and we chose a simple, but stylish menu of cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches on farmhouse white; egg mayonnaise and watercress on granary; and gammon and wholegrain mustard on seeded bread. These generously packed sandwiches were served up alongside salted cashews and almonds, and a glorious fruit platter. A precious highlight was a fresh fruit pavlova, made with pure love by the new baby’s excited older sister.

The happy mum-to-be had this feedback on the celebrations: ‘I am so grateful for all of your hard work and kindness in making yesterday utterly amazing. What an absolute treat and wonderful surprise.’
