For those of you who have read my blog recently will know I am hosting a baby shower for "R" who is Indian by birth. Her Indian "family" in Canada are having a baby shower in October for her. "R's" hubby was in India at the beginning of the month, and "R's" mother sent me, dd and her best friend a sari each for us to wear at the Indian baby shower.
They are gorgeous and on Saturday morning, we went to this Indian lady's house and had our measurements taken so she can make us the blouses to go under the sari's. She is also going to "alter" the actual sari material, so we can use the "cheats" method of putting on the sari, without having to get someone to help us. Here is a you tube video that shows you how to put on a sari and it's quite interesting. So our sari will already have the pleats in place and we can fasten it with Velcro...YEAH!!!! The lady's daughter had one of those and she was nine; our excuse is we never wear sari's normally!!!!
"R's" mother also sent us the matching jewelry and this is what I am going to show you. They are not very good photos, sorry. The top single item is to put in your hair. She sent me two sets of earrings as she wasn't sure if I would wear dangly ones. Then there is the necklace.
The bangles are the colour of my actual sari. The main colour though is black and the gold, green and pink are the accent colours. Now idea how I will get them on, even if I cream up my hand, as they are small.
Even the bag it was all put in is lovely:
Can't wait until the actual baby shower, to wear the whole outfit. I will make sure I take lots of photos.
Should say, dd is white background with black trim and bright red flowers, with silver jewelry. Dd friend is purple, black and gold, with purple and gold jewelry.
