| Sweet! Cupcakes and Treats | Oprah's Baby Shower |

So, Oprah's Baby SHoer has come and gone, screening last night on Channel 10 (Aus).  We received an entire segment (about 3 minutes) on the Shower, which was wonderful.  I'm not sure exeactly what I was expecting - and to be honest, up until the moment the show went to air, I didn't even know if I would be able to watch.

As some of you may know, I was very conflicted about "the 'O' effect", but in the end, decided that it was over and done, just roll with it and see where it leads.  After all, I myself had ben telling people that I was involved!

So, you can imagine my surprise when bang! up on the screen for a full screen close-up, were my signature floral cupcakes!  I believe I did squeal, ever so slightly (OK, nor "ever so slightly", but when you are my age, that's as much as I will admit to!!!).

It's still very surreal, and I don't know what, if anything, will come of it... and I am very happy with that.  Things will be the same (just like my prices!) now as they were pre 'O-Day'.  It's funny, the question I have been asked most is "I'll bet your prices will go up now, right?".  Wrong!  My product is my product, being featured on a TV show does not grant an automatic licence to rip people off (even though there are many that do just that).

So, here are my pictures first, and then some photos taken by Sharnel Dollar, of Sharnel Dollar Designs, who was the stylist of the entire "do".

Aren't these flowers stunning?
They were styled and supplied by The Bouquets of Ascha Jolie.

In case anyone missed it, or is looking for that "something special" for a new or impending arrival, the Shower was held at Bebe, in South Yarra.  Thanks Bebe!
