We've got a little bit of baby mania going on at my house. My sister-in-law Lena is expecting a new little baby girl sometime over the Christmas holidays. So we've been up to our chin with fun stuff putting together her baby gift. And I made the invitations to her family baby shower this past week. They turned out so fun that I had to share them. And then share a couple of other cute baby ideas that just NEED to be shared.
First, my sister April shared this idea with me for an idea for a baby shower. As your guests walk in, have a pretty basket of newborn diapers waiting on a table with a bunch of Sharpie markers and an empty basket for the completed diapers. Then have each guest write a short message on a diaper to either the new baby or the new mother. Can you imagine the uplift of seeing a sweet note from a loved one in the middle of the night when you're changing a diaper...for the third time??
And this last idea is perfect for a new mother who isn't getting a formal baby shower but who could use a little baby love. One of my friends in our ward here did this for another lady in our ward who was having her first baby, but was so busy that a formal shower was difficult. She emailed out this note and organized the "drops" with reminder emails. It went off without a hitch and was cute to boot!
Any fun ideas you'd like to share??
