back from my honeymoon!!

and it was AMAZING!

anything good happen while i was gone?

3 of my friends got engaged over the holidays (plus 2 others got engaged in october), so i have a full year of weddings ahead of me.....(yay! i LOVE weddings!!)

so you guys know me..i always have one task followed by another....my next event: baby shower. i'm throwing one in march for one of my BFF's...

so my question is: what would you expect as "favors" or "prizes" at a baby shower?

thanks ladies!!

p.s. i officially resigned as the moderator for this board. stay tuned for who your next mod is!

    Welcome back! When do we get to see pics and hear all about it?

    Sarack got it, although I say baby shaped cookies might be a tad creepy. Maybe pacifier shaped cookies, because cookies pacify moms and tots alike :D

    i have a baby bottle and a few other animal shaped cutters i planned on making for just regular snacks....but as favors?? hmmm....that might save me major dough (money), but use lots of cookie dough.

    i like the idea of a plant...a living gift!

    re: honeymoon. i have a few pics up on fbook..one day i'll go through the thousands of pictures and make a honeymoon bio. after i finish my planning bio..and start my wedding bio......

    At the last one I went to they did Hershey's bars, with cute blue & white wrappers that said "It's a Boy" and the due date.

    Yay - you popped back on!  :)  No advice on a baby shower favor - never been to one.  Sure does sound like you've got a TON of weddings coming up though! Smile

    Baby shower favors: Personalized Hershey bars (if it's a boy you do with nuts and if its a girl you do without nuts, haha)

    Also I have gotten mini favor bottles filled with blue or pink jelly beans.

    I have had many baby showers thrown for me and have thrown many too. The last baby shower I threw was in april. I set up a white fake tree. And bought a bunch of baby toys and put them all over the tree with a teddy bear at the top. Everyone loved it. For favors I have bought GC, body stuff (i recoomend a sale at bath works or ross. they have good quality stuff for much cheaper) and made cupcake pops. My mother in law gave out tulip bulbs as favors for my sons baby shower and everybody loved them. I hope this helps.

    I hope you honeymoon was amazing and Welcome back. Did you start the wedding trend among friends or what LOL

    Congrats to you, Jenn! I'm on this board informing everyone of the new mod and saw your post.

    I thought that I would let you know of a great game for a baby shower that I gave my BFF. I bought plain, white newborn onsies at Target and washable, colored fabric markers. I gave each person one and told them to decorate it for the mom. This is a great non-cheesy game and very useful b/c all new moms need lots of these in the beginning. Some were really funny, btw.

    Good luck!
