Secrets to A Great Baby Shower

Enlist an ally. “For my shower, I brought my sister-in-law into the loop and said what I wanted—a quiet afternoon with friends, in my home,” says Jasmine Trillos-Decarie, a mom of one in Boston, Massachusetts. No feathers were ruffled, and she got a laid-back celebration. “Friends told me it was the best baby shower they’d ever been to!”

Make it more meaningful. Want an eco-friendly party, with paperless invites, unwrapped presents, and an organic salad bar? Would you prefer donations to a cause rather than gifts? Mention that, too.

Rope in your husband. A his-and-hers shower—aka a “Jack and Jill” shower— is a great way to change up the game. “I suggested this for my second shower, and loved it,” says Jennifer Marshall, a mom of two in Tucson, Arizona. “It kept the traditional silliness out of the equation. Everyone knows boys don’t want toilet paper games!”

Do a registry reality check. Go for gifts in a wide range of prices. And resist the urge to register for blankets and toys, notes Shannan Carr, a mom of three and owner of Bottles to Britches, Pennsylvania, a service that helps expecting parents plan for everything from pregnancy to preschool. “Those are usually items people buy in addition to the items on the registry, so you will end up with a ton!”

Relinquish control. People love you and want to celebrate your happiness. So if friends surprise you with a shower that includes goofy games and a cake shaped like a diaper, go with it. Think of it this way: You’ll have some great stories to tell at junior’s first playdate.

10 Inspiring Disney Quotes for the Nursery

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.”

This is an all-time favorite inspiring quote from Winnie the Pooh. As a matter of fact, you would be surprised how many magical quotes are inspired from Disney movies. And well — they are just perfect for the nursery.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites. Which one do you like most?

A Favorite

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.”
This is one of my favorite quotes from Winnie the Pooh. Aren’t they such sweet and inspiring words from Christopher Robin to Pooh?

Wish Upon a Star

“When you wish upon a star makes no difference who you are anything your hear desires will come to you.”
I always sing this song to my little ones. It’s not just a great quote for the nursery, but it makes a beautiful lullaby too!

Three Words From Peter Pan

Think Happy Thoughts.
It’s safe to say, this quote could go anywhere in your home, not just the nursery.

Oh, Pooh Bear

“Sometimes the littlest things take up the most room in your heart."
A perfect quote for the little person in your life and a great addition to the gallery wall in the nursery.

Don't Just Fly, Soar!

Such inspiring words from the Disney classic, Dumbo. I think I might hang this one in my office!

Hakuna Matata

“Hakuna Matata what a wonderful phrase”
It means no worries for the rest of your days! All of you Lion King fans will love this motto.

Advice from Peter Pan

“Never grow up!”
I am sure all parents can relate to these three words.

From Dumbo

“You are so precious to me, sweet as can be, baby of mine.”
An all-time classic quote for a nursery.

Just Dance

“If you hear music, Dance”
Taken from the wise words of Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.

Be You

"The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.”
Walt Disney gives a reminder to be ourselves.

Bling on Baby at this Glamorous Baby Shower

Glitz, glam and gorgeous, it’s time to Bling on Baby at this baby shower that is all about sparkle and shine! From bejewelled diaper cakes to shimmering sugar-coated cupcakes, every inch of this fabulous shower screams glamour. Celebrate baby and mom-to-be with maximum pizzazz, creating a glitzy theme that's sure to dazzle!

Decor

Set the stage at your glittery shower with a tablescape that says, "Wow!" Decorate with a silver sequined tablecloth, silver plates and tableware, crystal champagne flutes, and elegant black napkins, stamped with silver lettering. Hanging mini chandelier string lights creates an extra special burst of glam throughout the space. 

Bedazzling Crafts and Blingo

Don’t let your guests feel like Plain Janes. Instead, kick off your activities with a bedazzling craft project that will have them bonding and blinging like pros as they transform blank baby bibs into brilliant fashionista bibs complete with dazzling silver ribbon.  The baby to be will always look fab for feeding in these one of a kind baby bibs, and you’ll have wonderful mementos from this special day. 

 

For a blingy twist on a classic shower game, play BLINGO instead of BINGO.  Print out BLINGO game cards with names of items on a baby registry such as, “playmat”, “bottle,” and “diapers.” Use plastic rhinestone rings as card markers and have fun as guests fill their cards with glittery stones until one screams, “BLINGO!”

Elegant Food & Drink

Continue the sparkle-filled theme with elegant food and drink. Bring on the bubbly with sparkling apple cider. Fill silver ice buckets with bottles of the cider for a faux-champagne look, without the alcohol. Using edible confectioner’s shimmery sugar dust, which you can find online or in specialty baking stores, elevates simple cupcakes to a splendorous level. Experiment with different shades of sugar and frosting to create a colorful multi-tiered display. 

Build A Diaper Cake

Build a diaper cake that radiates fabulousness with reflective mirrored accents and beaded ribbons in gold and silver. Stacking the diapers into tiers, and staggering the layers with mirrored tubing, will create height and visual interest making it the perfect glamorous centerpiece for the shower. Top the cake with a tight bundle of white flowers, and add extra bling with plastic jewels and rhinestones strewn around the tops of the diaper cake layers.

Celebrating the imminent arrival of your gorgeous baby gives you every reason to bump everything up a notch and go all out with the glitz and glam.  As the mama-to-be you are already glowing, so enjoy this extra dose of sparkle and get ready to Bling On Baby!

15 Baby Girl Names Inspired by Love

A year ago, I was getting ready for the birth of my third daughter. Her due date was Valentine’s Day, but she decided she’d rather wait a few more days and was born on the 18th.

Of course, we thought about lots of love-related names as we prepared to name her, since we knew she’d be a February baby.

Here are some of my favorites if you’re thinking about names inspired by love too!

  1. Amy – This French name means “dearly beloved.” If you want a more unique spin, consider going with the French spelling “Aimee” instead.
  2. Adora – For that baby you adore, try this regal-sounding name with Latin roots!
  3. Amara – This is a Greek name that means “lovely forever.” Can you imagine anything sweeter for your little girl?
  4. Carys – It’s a Welsh name that means love (Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas used it for their baby daughter).
  5. Court – Short for “Courtney,” you can also think of it as a fun spin on the old-fashioned term “courting” for your beloved baby.
  6. Essie – This shortened and modernized version of the Biblical name “Esther” conjures up a woman who entreated her husband to save her people.
  7. Kayleon – An Israeli name meaning “loveable,” it’s often used for boys, but it’s so close to the feminine name “Kailee” that I like it for a girl too.
  8. Lalasa – This Indian name means “one who promotes love.” If you’re having a second or third child, this is the perfect name since it also means “peaceful,” and any second-time parent knows that’s a dream characteristic in a baby!
  9. Lovelyn – Instead of “Evelyn,” this name is perfect for your little Valentine’s baby.
  10. Maite – In Spanish, this name means “loveable. I particularly love this as a unique middle name.
  11. Mila – This Russian name means “people’s love” and it’s a perfect short and easy first name.
  12. Rose – How could this list leave off “Rose,” the most romantic flower of them all?
  13. Sonnet – One of my all-time favorite baby names, this one conjures up images of Shakespeare’s most romantic poetry.
  14. Tris – Originally a boy’s name, Tristan is a Celtic hero who killed a dragon and eventually became a Knight of the Round Table and was deeply in love with Queen Isolde.
  15. Val – If your baby hits the February 14th jackpot, you can’t go wrong with this name!

15 Baby Boy Names Inspired By Love

If you’re getting ready to welcome a little Valentine’s guy in the next few weeks, you may be considering names that have some connection with the holiday of love.

After all, what could be a better Valentine’s gift than a snuggly new baby?

Here are 15 names I love for a February boy:

  1. Anteros – This ancient Greek name for the god of mutual love has good omens that you and your baby will share that kind of two-way affection!
  2. Byron – Famous for romantic poets like Lord Byron, this is the perfect name for a literary lover’s baby.
  3. Carwyn – A cool, unusual name that means “love” in Welsh. He can go by “Car” or “Wyn” for short.
  4. Connelly – This is a fresh spin on the super-popular Connor, and it means “love and friendship” in Irish.
  5. Chad – If you like a name that isn’t too unusual, but has some special significance for you, this name has African-American roots that mean “great love.”
  6. Dante – Not only does it mean “everlasting,” but Dante is most famously the poet who wrote “Divine Comedy” where his beloved Beatrice guides him through heaven. Plus it just has a fun, modern vibe.
  7. Darrell – This English name means “dearly loved.” Perfect for your little Valentine.
  8. Davis – The name “David” isn’t going out of style anytime soon and means “beloved” in Hebrew. If you want a newer spin on the classic, try Davis or Davidson instead.
  9. France – Paris is the city of love, so France is a great masculine name for a baby born in February.
  10. Het – This Hindu name means “love,” and I always love a short name to go with a longer last name.
  11. Lance – A shorter version of Lancelot, who loved Queen Guinevere, wife of King Arthur (who you probably know from The Sword in the Stone!).
  12. Lysander – One of the love-struck boys from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this name is hip and memorable.
  13. Marcade – I love this unusual, but easy-to-pronounce name of a Lord from Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labours Lost.”
  14. Rhett – If you’re a Gone with the Wind fan, it’s hard to go wrong with the ever-popular name of this handsome leading man who loves Scarlet.
  15. Vance – You may not want to go with the name “Valentine” for your tiny guy, but you can pick another strong name that starts with V!

How to Throw a Tres Chic Parisienne Baby Shower

The Eiffel Tower. Croissants, baguettes and delicious macaroons. Paris is filled with wonderful sites and, of course, treats. While you may not be able to travel during your pregnancy, you can bring Paris to you in a whimsically elegant baby shower, filled with that je ne sais quoi. Simple touches and a sophisticated color scheme can transform any space into a Parisian Patisserie.

Mix lavender, dusty pink, pastel greens and antiqued golden accents to create a refined tablescape that will set the tone for a chic shower. Using a lace or embroidered tablecloth forms the first elegant layer of the table. Arrange monochromatic bouquets of roses in silver and gold vases down the center.  Use cake stands and trays to create varying heights on the table.  

 

Create a playlist of famous French singers like Edith Piaf to play during the shower. You will fill the space with authentic French tunes, automatically putting everyone in a Parisian state of mind.

Continue your Parisian theme with the most delicious French luncheon foods.  You don’t need a fancy French bakery in your neighborhood to cater the shower. Serve mini croissants filled with tuna salad, brioche rolls with roast beef, and baguettes with cheese for a vegetarian option.  You can easily find frozen, ready to bake or packaged versions of these French breads in your grocery store, and make homemade sandwiches that look and taste magnifique!

Take a French staple such as Nicoise salad, and compose individual servings for each guest by assembling the ingredients, including green beans, eggs, olives, and roasted potatoes, in small ramekins. Or arrange delicate fruit salads in small glasses for a beautiful and tasty display.

Charming paper goods tie everything together. Print place cards, menus, thank you notes and food flags with the same pastel motif to create another layer of elegance to the shower.  These small details help make the theme complete. 

Of course a shower isn’t complete without games! To bring some bilingual conversation into the room try a French/English matching game featuring delicacies from the Patisserie. 

Don’t forget to say merci to your guests for attending the shower.  Lovely gifts such as glittery Eiffel Tower ornaments and artisanal pastel mints packaged in simple woven treat bags are a perfect token and reminder of a day spent in a Parisian fantasy world.

Producing a baby shower with Parisian flair doesn’t have to be daunting. By pulling together stylish, delicate decorative touches, a refined color scheme, and splendid French savories and sweets you can make a tres chic baby shower.

Thanks For the Memories: How to Host a Camp-Themed Baby Shower

Oh, the great outdoors! The sun-filled days of playing soccer, canoeing in the lake and singing around the campfire. Even though summer camp was ages ago, it’s not too late to recreate some of the good times for a baby shower, especially if you’re still friends with your former bunkmates. It’s also a great theme for an outdoorsy mom who’d rather wear hiking boots than heels.

For many, just the thought of camp brings back all sorts of memories that lend themselves to fun food, crafts, decorations and general good times, whether you host a baby shower in the woods or your own backyard.

Start the day off right by handing out stickers that look like badges when everyone arrives. Your guests can wear “Most Goals”, “Best Sportsmanship” and “Dodgeball Star”. Of course, the mommy-to-be gets to be “Camper of the Week!”

To greet your crowd, create a banner for the party entrance. Cut out large triangles from brown paper bags and hang upside down so they look like pennants. Write one letter on each to spell out “Welcome” and hang from a rope with clothes pins. Add vintage felt flags or those from your old camp.

Decorations:

Get in the mood by covering tables with burlap. Collect piles of twigs and pinecones that you can tie with twine to create all sorts of creative centerpieces... the more rustic the better. Fill glass bottles with woodsy flower arrangements and large glass vases with pine cones, leaves, rocks and moss for an outdoorsy look. Stick an inexpensive lantern on each table or archery arrows in an old thermos for a cool accent. Instead of table numbers, designate each: “Bunk 1,” “Bunk 2,” etc. If your party is inside, consider purchasing some posters of tree-filled forests, scenic vistas and waterfalls for a fitting backdrop.

Food and drink:

Remember bug juice, that sticky sweet bright red and orange stuff you gulped by the gallon? Create a much better tasting punch made with cranberry and orange juice, seltzer and berry sherbet or crushed fresh berries. Serve it in plastic cups with a camp logo or the mommy’s initials as a take home souvenir from a fun-filled day. Hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill are a must, along with healthy versions of the old camp standbys: potato salad and coleslaw. Add big bowls of cut up fresh fruit and some crudités, and you’re all set.

Treats:

What’s camp without s’mores? If you are able to build a fire, give everyone a marshmallow on a stick and let them roast away. If not, pack up little goodie bags filled with fixings for sweet treats to take home later. You can also make s’mores on a stick by dipping marshmallows in melted chocolate and rolling them in crushed nuts. Or set up fondue pots and let everyone go dip crazy! Be sure you supply an assortment of goodies that taste great gooey, including pretzel rods, strawberries, bananas and pineapple.

Decorate cookies to look like Girl Scout badges. Or if you have an in with a local troop, buy a batch of Girl Scout cookies and serve the real thing.

Crafts:

Crafts are not only fun to make and a great favor, but they also give guests the opportunity to chat and mingle, perfect for parties where the guests haven’t seen each other in a while or don’t know each other well. Set up a station to make friendship bracelets, tie-dye onesies for the new baby, or get crafty with ice pop sticks.

Entertainment:

You might want to forgo tug-of-war with pregnant women in the mix, so opt for something tamer like singing your old camp faves. If there’s a guitar player in the bunch, ask her to bring her instrument or download some appropriate tunes. For the super creative, take a favorite song and change the words to fit the mom-to-be and her new baby. It will be a gift she’ll never forget!

How to Throw a Magical Rainbow Baby Shower

Somewhere over the rainbow is a magically colorful baby shower. Why restrict your imagination to a muted neutral theme when you can bring bright swirls of rainbow delight throughout the decor, food and even the invitations? Celebrate with candy-colored fun and create a happy atmosphere through the joy and playfulness of rainbows.

Set the stage for your rainbow shower by surprising guests with a colorful invite featuring multi-colored beads, glitter or confetti. Keep the rest of the invite clean and simple, letting the whimsical details pop, and giving your guests a preview of the delightful shower.

invite.jpg 

Create the foundation for your tablescape with a bright solid color of the rainbow such as red or purple. Build your table using bright white place settings and serving platters that show off the vibrant colors of your rainbow themed food. Since rainbows magically stretch across the sky, mimic the effect with rainbow flag banners or tassel garlands hanging from above.

Rainbow themed food is especially fun to create and to serve.  Layered gelatin parfaits in glass tumblers are both beautiful and delicious.  Fresh blueberries, strawberries, melons, and citrus, can be aligned in rows according to color forming a healthy rainbow offering.  Bottles of different flavored sodas and waters make for an easy rainbow themed bar.

However, the true star of the dessert table is definitely the rainbow cake. Don’t slice into it until all of your guests are seated and watching the big reveal. All of that white icing is covering a gorgeous rainbow layer cake inside!

Your guests can get creative by crafting colorful onesies with adorable baby friendly prints. All you need are blank white onesies, some stencils or other pattern cutouts, and fabric markers. Let each guest make a onesie for the baby on the way.  No one has to worry about not being artistic since you’ll supply ideas and templates, and the mom to be will have a bunch of wonderfully personal onesies ready for her new baby.

  onesies.jpg

Finally, don’t forget the diaper cake! Wrapping tiers of diapers in ribbon or crepe paper in the colors of the rainbow, starting with the warmest colors and proceeding upwards – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet – will produce the perfect diaper cake. Top the diaper tiers with rolled, stacked diapers to create a cloud effect on top and create the most joyful shower centerpiece!

Choosing a rainbow theme is the perfect way to bring magic and happiness to every aspect of your baby shower. It’s both playful and enchanting, just like the baby to be you are celebrating on this wonderful day.
