Mr McGregor's Garden Party

I'm on the home straight to Grandma-hood; seven weeks to go and the baby shower is done and dusted. Boy does Pintrest come into it's own for party planning!
Emma's girlfriends wanted to go with a garden party and chose a Beatrix Potter theme.
We started building ideas on a Pintrest board here

We took some inspiration and sent out the invites. 

And got the garden ready....

for what turned out to be one of the hottest days of summer!

Emma purchased several silver trays from the local op-shop for a couple of dollars each and coated them in blackboard paint providing plenty of signs for us to work with.

Craig schooshed the garden and tidied the rows

I can see Peter Rabbit has been here and Mr McGregor has left his hoe in his hurry to chase him!

Even the lettuces going to seed look enticing.

Thanks also goes to my Mum for lending us her Beatrix Potter critters for various parts of the garden lending a lovely story book feel.

I missed getting a lot of photos in the hustle and bustle of the actual shower event but it really did look lovely with every corner of the garden flowering.


  1. What a lovely idea for a party ... wish we could have some of your sun here ... M x

  2. Your garden is looking gorgeous Tanya. Mr Mc Gregor would be quite at home. And you're right, your gone to seed lettuces look lovely.
