We always do this. We wore the same thing in different colors. We wore our @colevintage dresses in the same afternoon without even talking to each other."

Paula Peralejo-Fernandez is going to be a mom soon.

On Instagram, her Ate Rica posted a picture of them in twinning outfits, and wrote about how excited she is in meeting her nephew, whom Paula and husband Charlie will name Pablo.

"/ Twinning Forever // I came first. Then she arrived.

"And I think, we always do this. We wore the same thing in different colors.

"We wore our @colevintage dresses in the same afternoon without even talking to each other.

"My sister @mama_the_explorer is going to pop soon, but I hope not too soon so I can be here in time for Pablo's hatching.

"Then when he comes out we begin a new hashtag: #theadventuresofPhilipandPablo. They'll be best cousins, yipeeeeeeeeeee!!!! #pablohatchingsoon"

The last hashtag was used during Paula's second baby shower, which was organized by Rica.

It was held on September 16, at Mateo's Restaurant and Cafe, 54 N Domingo Avenue, Horseshoe Village, Quezon City.

Styled by Flora and Fern, the intimate gathering had a bird watching theme since Paula and Charlie are both birders.

Since my husband and I are birders, my sister decided to go with a birdwatching theme for our baby shower with the hashtag: #PabloHatchingSoon ?? This beautiful styling is done by @floraandfernph, photo by @jamieandbaby! You can see more of the photos and styling here: http://www.mamatheexplorer.com/index.php/2016/09/15/pablohatchingsoon-baby-shower-number-2/ ?? If you want your event decorated in anything floral/tropical/rustic/leafy, promise, FLORA & FERN PH is the company for you. I see their hardwork almost everyday - the planning + mockup + packing + actual event styling, and wow, their hardwork & dedication is something else. ???? I actually often ask them if they even get tired (I do - just watching them!), but I guess when it's passion, they forget the physical pains that come with the job! ???? #pablohatchingsoon #floraandfernph #eventstylingph

Paula mentioned that the event stylists used real eggs.

She added, "In our wedding, we made sure the materials in our guest tables were all recyclable and could mostly be taken home by our guests.

"Love that they followed this principle by putting something that goes with the theme but are also edible!

"Many of the eggs were cooked so my nephew and some guests actually ate them!"

The nephew she was referring to was Phillip, Rica's son.

The cakes were from Miss Buttercream, aka Nikki Valdez.
