Where are all my crunchy mamas? Or those that just want to help reduce their (and the mama-to-be’s) carbon footprint?
Throwing a green baby shower doesn’t have to be tedious. In fact, it’s quite simple to do – the key is planning ahead and coming prepared.
Here are three tips to help get your planning and ideas rolling:
1. Cutlery And Such
It kind of goes without saying that to have a green baby shower, disposables shouldn’t even be considered. So don’t even think on them.
Have guests eat off of pretty dishes accentuating the baby’s gender. If the sex is a surprise, then pastel yellows and greens will work best.
Same goes for your glasses, cutlery, and tableware – a quick trip to your local craft store can ignite a frenzy of decorating ideas that can turn an ordinary linen napkin and boring stainless steel fork into an eye-catching display for the mama and baby-to-be.
Leave the balloons at the party store and think green instead.
Pretty soy-based candles can present themselves as lovely decorations and centerpieces. Have each guest take one home at the end of the party for their party favor.
Also, someone you know has an awesome garden that’s willing to share its beauty. Cut lovely flowers from a garden and arrange them around the candles and the room for some super pretty decorating.
