Modern Baby Shower Planning

There is nothing I love more than a baby shower; it's my favorite kind of party. Though most of my girlfriends are just beyond this stage, there was a time a few years ago when I got invited to baby showers at least once a month. Shopping for baby clothes (especially the really tiny ones) trumps handbags any day in my opinion! Below, I've gathered a few things to inspire you in case you're lucky enough to be throwing a baby shower soon! Some of these items are new takes on old ideas; perhaps my favorite thing is the Spudware.
As always, think sustainably. No one needs a bunch of plastic crap. I actually saw umbrella-shaped tape measures, alluding to that horrible game where a mean mother-in-law actually measures the mother-to-be's belly then has the guests guess the circumference. Don't even think about it! Instead, provide favors that will be eaten, planted, or lit on a special day (personally, I feel no shower is complete without baby powder-scented candles). I have captioned these items just for you!

  2. I'm hosting a baby shower on Sept 19 for a college friend (who married my cousin, actually!) and I just ordered the cutest cupcakes for dessert from Crave...they'll be coming with pink buttons on top in the shape of baby buggies!

  5. SR2: I always think I can make something like the little bloomers. The best laid plans of mice and men... better to save the time and trouble and just order them!

  6. Yes most of my friends are way beyond this but I enjoy planning them as well and I usually get one of my Baby Powder candles out and people think I have a Baby in the house! I love those bib cookies!
