Birthday Cake & Cards from the Bump

On Sunday we celebrated Spencer's Birthday. With his birthday being the day after my due date I wasn't sure whether to buy him presents from a baby or from the bump, at the beginning of the week I decided to risk it and buy from the bump.

I actually found it difficult to find things from the bump, Father's Day cards & Christmas cards were readily available on sites such as Moonpig and Funky Pigeon, but not Birthday. After a little bit of Googling I was taken to Etsy and thankfully a UK based Etsy seller. 

I couldn't resist the centre of attention day card, I also added inside that he should make the most of it before baby comes, we've been joking for a while about the fact that the baby is due so close to his birthday so his birthday will be forgotten about once baby arrives.

For the cake I automatically went to Baker Days as I know that you can completely personalise cakes with them and I know that they taste good. I also included a little message in the card that came with the cake, it did tickle me that they just stuck a piece of paper in the card instead of writing or typing the message directly onto the card but the card is free with the cake so this didn't bother me.

I ordered my cards early in the morning and both of them arrived the following day. I paid £5.99 to have the cake delivered by Courier on the Friday, unfortunately there were some issues with the Courier and I never received the cake. He did knock but didn't give me time to answer or attempt to leave it with a neighbour. As a result we didn't get the cake until Monday. Baker Days are kindly refunding me the £5.99 and are looking into the issues with the Courier.


  1. aww how lovely, such a fab idea not sure why I never did this when I was pregnant for Stuart's birthday.

  2. What lovely ideas! I can't believe how close you are to giving birth- and that it's taken me so long to get around the commenting! x
