Inspired by Nature
""I bought gypsophila seeds for the Baby Party, my best friend. Gypsophila means ""pure heart"" and means in English ""Baby's Breath"". I put a packet of seeds in a terracotta pot, wrapped in transparent foil and decorated with bows and a little bird. Everyone was delighted with this original gift and most of them later enjoyed the growing plants. ""
"" For my baby party, my mom and I bought big coffee cups and a range of potted plants a plant - like a flower pot - all the guests were delighted with the idea of having that day in their memory for a long time to come. ""
"" My cousin has a mini ivy with a pretty sticky note on each guest given. It said: Care for this plant in honor of soon-to-be-born babies. ""
Smart Ideas!"" Fill little plastic baby bottles with hand lotion and then decorate them with blue or pink gift ribbons, depending on the baby's gender or with both colors, if it's not yet known. ""
"" For our Baby Shower Party we made baby shoes out of paper cups. We cut off the rim of the cups and cut two parallel slits on one side, which looked like the tongue of a shoe. Then we came to holes left and right of the tongue, for the ""shoelaces"". For this we used blue or pink gift ribbons. In the ""baby shoes"" we put colored tissue paper and different sweets on it. ""
"" I asked my mother's friends to keep all empty baby food jars, I cleaned them thoroughly, tied a ribbon around the edge and turned pink or putting in blue candles. ""
"" I made my gifts using baby diapers. Unfold the diaper and dress with pink or blue tissue paper. Now put in a variety of sweets and tie the diaper with a tape, so nothing can fall out. On the loop comes a label with the name of the baby. Ready! ""
"" For my baby party, my friend had fridge magnets printed with ""Donna's Baby Party"" and the date of the party.One year later, I saw the magnets on various fridges of friends and my family. It's a nice memory. ""
"" I like to give bookmarks. It is a meaningful, durable and inexpensive gift. If the Baby Shower Party runs under a certain motto, you can design the bookmark accordingly. My theme was ""Aristocats"" by Walt Disney and I found adorable kitten bookmarks in a bookstore. ""
"" I've designed baby related crossword puzzles and word search puzzles as a fun gift for my guests. ""
Bake Your Own Baby Party Cake""My favorite is biscuits in the shape of baby bottles and babies, wrapped in colorful cellophane or tissue paper. You can give your guests a pretty cookie cutter and / or recipe so they can try it out for themselves. ""
"" Bake small muffins or milk buns, wrap them in pink or blue cellophane and tie one Loop around, with a label: Thank you from (name of expectant mom) s early baby ""
Fragrance with Love"" Take a piece of scented soap, cut a triangle from a baby fabric, enter put the soap in it and fold it like a diaper. Close the diaper with a colored safety pin. This gift will work out well because everyone loves scented soaps and the theme is perfect for a baby party! ""
"" I have hosted many baby shower parties and the most popular gift to guests is a piece of soap in the Color of the party motto - pink or blue. On the packaging you can attach a pendant with a nice saying, such as: B.: 'We celebrated (the name of the expectant mother) in pink and blue. This gift is special for you! '""
"" I bought bath sponges in nets and soaps in baby form, put the soaps in small plastic bags and clipped them to the nets of the bath sponges with golden safety pins and then tied some nice bows around the safety pins . ""
