Are you hosting a baby shower? If so, you're probably going to have as much fun planning the shower as you will have at the event. There's just something magical about anything to do with babies, isn't there? From decorating the party area to buying baby pajamas, here are some ideas that might help you to host an event that the mommy-to-be and your guests will remember for a long time.
Decorating The Party Area
Do you know if the baby will be a boy or a girl? If the baby will be a boy, you'll more than likely want to go with blue decorations, right? And pink for a girl, of course. It's almost more fun if you don't know the sex of the baby because then you can go pretty wild with all colors. Either way, go with lots of balloons all over the party room, as they could even be part of a game you will play.
Another fun decorating idea is to hang items for the baby's room in strategic places, say from a chandelier. Just picture little brushes and combs, baby booties, and other baby items hanging over the table where refreshments will be placed. If you do decide to use balloons as part of the decorations, the game you'll play is simple. At some point, each guest gets to hold the balloon and give advice to the new mommy-to-be.
Creating A Gift Basket
If you have trouble deciding on just one item to give the new mommy, consider giving her a gift basket full of items the baby will need. Have you ever had a baby yourself? If so, you know from experience that one item that will be appreciated is a collection of baby pajamas. Babies go through them so fast!
Think of buying assorted sizes of baby pajamas. For example, buy newborn sizes up to toddler sizes. Think of selecting some that have footies as part of the design for when it's chilly in the evenings. And buy special ones for the holidays, too. For example, look for little pajamas in a kitten or puppy design that the baby can wear for Halloween.
If you do decide to buy baby pajamas as part of the gift basket, consider buying matching little blankets, too. Also, think of buying special laundry detergent that is formulated for baby clothes. The detergent can even be part of the gift basket.

After burning through several pairs of cheap earrings, I decided one day that it might be in my best interest to look into buying some better pieces. Instead of visiting little accessory shops, I started saving my money and frequenting high-end jewelry stores. I quickly realized that by investing more money into jewelry, the items would last significantly longer and look a lot better when I wore them. It was amazing to see how much better I looked with the better items. This blog is all about investing in better accessories so that you can take better pictures or enjoy a renewed sense of self.
