This definitely isn’t something that was around when I was younger. In fact, this would have resulted in a lot of telling off from my parents if I’d dared to stick my hands into ANY cake and make a mess.
I have learnt though that this is something that is now almost a given for any little boy or girl having a first birthday. Sorry Cooper, you missed out mate! Though Cooper is more likely to just eat the cake as he hates getting messy or wasting food. Yep, he takes after his Mum and Nana!!
So after a lot of suggestions and a couple of requests, I decided to make some nappy cover sets to go with our bow ties in our Etsy shop. That’s not all though. I also (quite by accident) decided on a whim to introduce bows for girls as well, so these sets are also available for the girls.
One issue with now offering baby items is that – well – Cooper isn’t really a baby anymore. Which meant that I had to source some babies that could model our nappy cover sets.
We managed to find some very willing parent volunteers and had a couple of photoshoots with these two gorgeous little cherubs. Ash was the photographer and he did a great job – he’s always been more into landscape photography because (quote) “scenery doesn’t move” so this was a bit of pressure to put on him, but he definitely pulled it off well. And our two models were amazing; they both had to endure a few clothing changes each, and both were due for nap time (because babies never sleep when you have something planned, right?) but they were both still very happy and smiley!
I still don’t like to think about my lovely creations being totally covered in cake … but hey, that’s what washing machines are for I suppose!
