Thank You Favors – Baby Shower

If you have been following my last few posts, you already know about the baby shower I organized for my daughter, last spring. Like any other special event, baby showers also end with a thank you and a keepsake, also referred to as “favor”. I have prepared my favors from a pink votive candle in a glass jar, wrapped in pink tulle, tied with a dainty pink ribbon, plus a special Thank You note from the baby, text of which I am including in this post.

Baby Shower Games

Showers are lots of fun, since you get to see so many interesting gifts, chat with your old friends, and meet new ones, snack on variety of tasty foods, play fun games, and even win prizes… if you’re lucky.
I will share a couple of the games we played at my daughter’s baby shower.


Pink Punch – Recipe

Punch is one of those drinks that looks elegant, and tastes great, no matter what the occasion for celebration. I have posted a Baby Blue Punch for blue theme baby shower, so to be fair, I am posting a recipe for a Pink Punch, for the pink theme baby shower.

This punch has a very refreshing taste, and an appealing rosy color. Very simple to prepare, and one recipe serves 40.


Baby Blue Punch – Recipe

This punch makes a very interesting addition to a blue theme for a baby shower.
The baby blue color of the punch resembles the sky, and the melting ice cream scoops, resemble frothy white clouds.
It is non-alcoholic, thus very enjoyable by the mother-to-be.


Diaper Cake – Centerpiece For Baby Shower

“April showers bring May flowers” (a very familiar phrase), but spring also brings lots of baby and wedding showers.

Last spring when I was planning a baby shower for my daughter, I searched for different themes and decorating ideas. I came upon this wonderful idea for a centerpiece….a diaper cake. I was so impressed by it that I decided to try to make one on my own.
