lilsugar is celebrating mamas-to-be all month with extensive baby shower coverage that will help you put on awww-inducing, unique, socially relevant, and hip fetes. This week, we are planning an heirloom-themed party that asks guests to pass on stories, advice, and heirloom gifts instead of filling a nursery with new goodies.
The aim of the shower is to keep costs down and celebrate cherished motherhood and childhood moments, so there's no need to create a fancy favor. If you opt to put Rice Krispie Treats on Popsicle sticks on the shower menu, consider making extras as favors. Because Rice Krispie Treats don't require any baking, the whole project of making the treats, cutting, and sticking in a stick should take less than 15 minutes. I wrapped mine in a clear cellophane bag (purchased at the dollar store) and topped the treat off with an old-fashioned-looking yarn tie. You might also consider making cellophane bags filled with vintage candies and a Polaroid of the mom-to-be.
