So the count down till Baby Sakuma arrives has begun. About one month to go. Mr T–my super generous nice bff decided to host my Tokyo baby shower at his lovely home. In Japan it’s a rare occasion to have a house party as Japanese homes are relatively small and people are embarrassed to have guests over. So I feel lucky Mr T has opened up his home to celebrate me and Baby Sakuma.
I’m not one for strict traditions, so I decided I wanted to invite guys to my baby shower too. And of course Boo-chan would be there too. Mr T is a fabulous cook and made all the desserts himself. Just check out this spread: chewy rice crispy treats, a beautiful cake, rich chocolate cake pops, and sweet strawberry popcorn!
He also made crispy chocolate chip cookies and served them with shots of milk. Such a clever idea! And I had no idea that his cake had three layers! It was so moist and scrumptious and followed the color theme of pink-strawberry cheesecake, black-chocolate and white-vanilla mouse. So cute and thoughtful.
Since Mr T slaved away making all the awesome desserts, we decided to order these gourmet Burgers from Brozers (ブラザーズ 人形町店). They came in cute little individual box lunches with french fries and onion rings. I was a bit skeptical at first, but after taking one bite into this mouthwatering juicy hamburger, I was sold!
Everyone enjoying their yummy burgers! The above picture doesn’t show how truly big they are, but you can see in the pics below!
My friend K-taro also brought so many cakes from the Gourmet Shop at Mandarin Oriental Hotel. They were all delicious–yes I ate one of each! Well I should rephrase that–Baby Sakuma and I had one of each. hahahaha
All my guests wrote heartfelt or funny messages and put it into a book for me. And who can forget all the gifts I received! I have the NICEST friends ever. Baby Sakuma will surely be one stylish little girl!
I’m one lucky girl to be surrounded by so many loving supportive friends! Baby Sakuma, Boo-chan and I appreciate each and everyone one of you: near and far, absent or present, we felt all the love today!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Today was truly a special and memorable day!!
