Welcome Home Baby

Each person will have their own style and preference when it comes to packing their baby bag. You might need a personalized tote or a large suitcase, depending on your complexity to pack and plan. Start with a baby packing list to brainstorm your ideas for what you will need. Be sure to pack any special baby shower gifts your family gave you to use the first day such as welcome home baby clothes. Most gifts you receive for your baby shower will be for once you’re settled in. But some baby shower gifts might be used on the day of so you’ll need to wash them ahead of time.

Birth Kit

The items that you put in your birth kit might vary if you prefer green items or green baby products. You won’t need to bring a full birthing kit unless you’re having a homebirth. These items will be mostly to keep you comfortable and sanitary. The nurses’ station might have a hospital bag checklist for you to use as a guide. You can use the same tote bag for all your belongings, or use a separate bag for baby items. A few washcloths, a pillowcase and sanitary wipes are always good to bring.

Mommy Bag

Pack an extra set of your favorite must have items in a travel kit. Tip: a personalized bag might come in handy for the nurses to know your belongings. This travel kit, along with your tote bag can be placed in your car for a last minute grab! In addition to bathroom supplies, pack a pair of ballet slippers and extra socks for walking around. Pack a few extra pairs of necessity items that you don’t mind leaving behind. Then all you’ll need are a change of clothes for you to go home in, think sweats and comfy. You’re not a celebrity; no one expects full makeup and heels!

Bringing a baby into the world is one of life’s greatest miracles. The delivery is usually the scariest part for moms. The more you’re prepared for things, the easier the process will be. Most hospitals recommend you have a baby hospital bag prepared at 35 weeks. Be sure to put items on your baby shower registry that you’ll use for the day of as well. Your friends and family will give you baby shower gifts they remember having and you’ll probably stock up on advice and tips. Don’t be worried about keeping every little item, the only one you really need to remember to bring home is your new bundle of joy!

Baby Shower Ideas: Sprinkled With Love

When you’re planning a second baby, in many ways it can be just as hectic as your first. You have to make room for another child and still give your first born love and attention. Moms who are having second children—adopting or natural, can still enjoy the fun of a baby shower. Friends and family members choose to a baby shower theme such as “sprinkled with love” that is more about the love and support rather than the advice and tips. Baby showers are a fun way to pass along information and advice from mother to mother, but since second time moms already know the ins and outs of having a baby a “sprinkled with love” baby shower is fitting.

Something Sweet

Instead of having a large baby shower cake, opt for small bite size treats. Ice cream sundaes, cupcakes and anything you can add sprinkles too. Sprinkles cupcakes can even be ordered for your dessert table. A stunning cupcake stand with yellow and white cupcake wrappers can create a “sprinkled with love” cupcake display. A blue and yellow color theme is the perfect way to add a ‘shower’ theme without looking too traditional. Use yellow candies and blue sprinkles for a color coordinated dessert table.

Polka Dot Love

Looking for a stunning party backdrop? Decorate with polka dot garland in fun colors. The pattern will match your sprinkled with love theme and add a pop of flair to your décor. Pair with paper lanterns and tissue paper pom poms for a shabby chic style. Just because you’re having a second child doesn’t mean you have to choose a boring shower theme. It means you can be more modern and unique with your style and activities. Skip the boring pink and blue for bold purples, retro greens and bright yellows. After all, when you’re having your second or third child you need a little variety with the baby shower gifts and baby shower ideas.

Tied With a Bow

Speaking of baby shower gifts, it’s important to think outside the box for a second child. Most moms already have hand-me-downs and gently used items from their first child. Adopting moms might need baby shower gifts for a slightly older child instead of a newborn. Put together a registry for items that you need for your child this time around. Whether you’re adopting or giving birth, your friends will appreciate knowing exactly what to get you and what you really need. Receiving an item you don’t need is just as stressful for your friends as it is for you. Baby shower gifts can be a lot easier if you have a simple gift list for friends to follow. Try using a universal online gift registry that lets you pull gift ideas from an online website. You can select a few baby shower outfits, baby supplies and even stock up on baby diapers through an online registry.

In our opinion, hosting a baby shower for a mom expecting her second child is a lot easier and more fun. You have more time to plan activities for mom to pamper and indulge her rather than focus on teaching her everything there is to know about children. This time around you can splurge and spend a day at the spa or treat the kids to a fun play date!

Top 10 Unique 2012 Baby Shower Ideas

Celebrating a new baby is a big milestone for a new mom and dad. Planning the announcement and introducing the baby can be daunting and stressful for new parents. Traditionally close friends or family members would put together a special baby shower to celebrate the new bundle of joy. New traditions are starting to occur where parents announce their own future family member and invite guests to share in their happiness with them. Baby showers have become a unisex party for both men and women to enjoy.

Cute As A Button Baby Shower Favors

Here are the new trendiest top 10 popular baby shower decorating ideas for your future bundle of joy!

  1. Gender Reveal Cupcakes: These cupcakes are a great way to surprise your guests with the sex of the baby. The sex of the baby is revealed with pink or blue frosting filling inside the cupcake. Use a neutral cupcake wrapper like green and yellow to confuse guessers.
  2. Baby Theme Food: Invite guests to drink from large baby jars or milk cartons for a fun “be a kid again” feel! Pop bright colored retro paper drinking straws for a grown up way to avoid spills! Mini treats and mini cupcakes are the perfect excuse to serve finger food instead of an entrée.
  3. Diaper Cakes: This trend has been on the rise for some time now. The honored couple is supplied with diapers rolled up in the form of a cake. You can wrap cake with coordinated ribbon to make the cake match the rest of the baby shower décor. Decorate a cupcake stand with similar theme cupcakes for a matching presentation!
  4. Book Theme Baby: This theme is great for the avid reader parents. Guests are invited to bring a copy of their favorite childhood book they read themselves or read to their kids. Ask them to write an inscription on the inside cover for your child.
  5. Sprinkle Party: This term is used for moms who are having their second or third child. Since the assumption is they already have everything they need from the first baby shower, a simple sprinkle is the perfect party for giving diapers and other goods that a second time mom might need for a new gender different than the first baby.
  6. Jack and Jill Reveal: This is a super simple idea that won’t take a lot of time or energy. When inviting all your guests make a note to inform them to wear a blue or pink shirt to symbolize their guess for whether the baby is a girl or boy. Guests can receive baby party favors in blue or pink to reward them for their correct guess!
  7. After The Arrival: Some parents prefer to have the party after their big arrival comes so they can host a “see and sip” party where guests are invited to an open house style baby shower to see the baby and sip on drinks.
  8. Bring A Letter: This party theme really works well if you have a lot of guests attending. Assign each guest a number or letter to bring. They decorate a large wooden number or letter any way they’d like and they’re hung in the baby’s room for future learning tools!
  9. Onesie Decorating: This time honored tradition of decorating onesies for the new baby is a great way to incorporate different styles into your baby’s wardrobe. Buy bulk baby onesies for each guest to decorate and craft supplies from your local craft store. Onesie parties are all the rage!
  10. Guessing Game: This is another familiar tradition that is still in existence. Guests are asked to bet on what the baby will weigh. An alternative to baby weight (such a sensitive subject) is to have guests guess the baby’s eye color- though this only works if the parents have different eye colors. Create a little baby face drawing pad and each guest can take a crayon and color the hair and eyes the color that they think they will be.



Kate Hudson in for a Sweet Surprise: BOY or GIRL??

Next in line on the celeb baby circuit is actress Kate Hudson, who is expecting her second child with rocker fiancé Matt Bellamy. Kate was treated to an uber-glam baby shower with a host of other celebrity moms in attendance, including Jen Heyer, Courteney Cox, Sara Foster and Nicole Richie. The couple don’t know yet if they are having a boy or girl, though Kate already has a seven-year-old son with ex-husband Chris Robinson. The shower was reportedly a very pretty affair, with plenty of decorations in both blue and pink, and party games that kept the guests guessing – and laughing! We reckon Kate would do well to treat all her glamorous mommy friends to some really classy baby shower favors, like these Personalized Premium Lip Balm and Compact Mirror Sets. As for the catering, we think any menu would have been beautifully complemented by a candy buffet with cute pink and blue candy in Baby Shower Personalized Candy Jars. So SWEET!

Wedding Favors – Adding that Personal Touch

After all the time and effort you have taken to plan your ceremony, whether it is a sweet-sixteen party, a wedding or a baby shower, make sure that you bring the same attention to detail when choosing your wedding favors. It is after all the lingering last note of your celebration that your friends and family will take away with them. Whether it is a formal Church wedding and ballroom reception or a casual pool-side bachelorette party, the right party favor can be the icing on top of the perfectly planned event!

If you are looking for a wedding favors, and are finding the choices mind-boggling, it is a great idea to tie in your favors with the theme of the wedding. If you are choosing a beach or nautical themed wedding, the sandalwood fans and sunscreen lotions can be part of a nice package to put together for your guests. You can combine these with a mini-guest photo album and a disposable camera and not only have you linked the favor to the occasion but you have added that extra special personal touch to it.

Edible favors make for a popular choice in many celebrations because you really cannot go wrong with good chocolate! Beautifully wrapped lollipops, which can also be personalized, are popular again for the same reason.

Beautiful personalized polka dot boxes and satin bags can become part of the décor and add an interesting layer to your theme and table settings. Remember though that you are allowed to think “outside the box”! You can give a small container plant or even a packet of seeds if you are going with an eco-friendly wedding idea. Wedding favors are all about connecting with your guests and so think in terms of what will be fun for you and your guests!
