You've "planted" the seeds and now you're ready for the "harvest" and your guests to arrive. All my tips should brighten up your guests and bring smiles to their faces. There will be no shortage of "Mmmmm's" from the dips and goodies you serve. You can never go wrong with a little "tending" of the garden and yummy food.
Whether you are planning a baby shower, a baptism, or your child's birthday, the invitation will be the first impression your guests have of your celebration.
Out of town relatives may find it difficult to attend a baby shower for the expecting mom. It is common for family (especially the grandparents) to pitch in and help around the house during the first few weeks after the child is born.
The custom of celebrating a new baby has been around for centuries. Although the times have changed and traditions differ from one culture to another, the central purpose of baby showers remains the same: to share in the joy of an expectant couple's upcoming arrival and help them prepare for their new lives as parents.
