Inside pregnant Amy Hart’s pre-birth lunch after banning friends from hosting baby shower
Ahead of the arrival of her highly anticipated little one, Amy Hart celebrated her final few weeks in style with a lavish pre-birth lunch, after specifically requesting that her friends didn’t throw her a baby shower.
The Love Island star, who appeared on the 2019 series of the ITV2 dating show, is currently expecting her first baby with her boyfriend Sam Rason, with the little one due to arrive in the next few weeks.
Yet rather than mark the occasion with a gift strewn bash, Amy ditched the idea of a traditional baby shower to enjoy a stress free lunch with her nearest and dearest friends and family at the weekend.
Last week, Amy had revealed she didn’t want to throw a baby shower for a number of reasons, with one of them being that the Americanised term was intended to “shower the baby with gifts” something she felt was pointless, as she doesn’t yet know the baby’s gender.
“I don’t see any point in being showered with lots of beige!” She wrote on Instagram, before adding that many of her friends and family preferred to wait “until the baby is safely here before buying anything.”
So instead of a day full of gifts and games, Amy was whisked off to a lavish lunch instead – something the star much preferred as she documented the classy affair on social media.
Dressed in a chic red velvet bardot dress by Oh Polly, Amy looked sensational as she posed for a number of snaps at the impressive event.
Surrounded by balloons in varying shades of taupe and beige, gorgeous floral garlands decorated the event with plenty of roses in pale yellow, cream and white perfectly complimenting the neutral colour palette.
Revealing that the designs had been pulled together by event planners Every Last Detail, Amy went on to showcase a few more behind the scenes glimpses of her special day, including the adorable place settings that featured “Baby Rason” branding, and again matched the taupe colour theme.
There were plenty of personal touches to be found throughout the proceedings too, with branded water bottles also emblazoned with the little one’s name “Baby Rason” as Amy and her friends relaxed and celebrated together with a series of delicious mocktails and sparkling drinks.
Sharing her gratitude online, Amy wrote: “No gifts…No games….It’s not a baby shower’ What a lovely afternoon! Big thanks to Mum & Rhiannon for planning my Pre Birth Lunch….I thought there was going to be 5 of us.”
She then continued: “Luckily everyone followed my wishes and didn’t bring a gift so I wasn’t ‘showered’ with anything! Just a lovely lunch to catch up with all my closest friends and family before I give birth!”
As soon as she’d shared the post, many of Amy’s famous pals rushed to social media to share their thoughts, including expectant mum Molly Mae Hague, who wrote: “Beautiful ames” alongside a string of heart emojis.
Vicky Pattison also weighed in as she wrote: "So gorgeous”, meanwhile former Eastenders star Tracy Ann Oberman added: “aw my friend xxxx”
