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 goods instead of filling a nursery with new goodies.
When we planned the party's decor, I suggested you ask guests to bring photos of their loved ones and children to hang on a clothespin banner at the party. If they do, one of the day's activities should be a half hour dedicated to story telling and sharing advice for the new mommy. Once that is over, have each guest fill out our fill-in-the-blank Wishes for Baby card (you can download it in blue and pink or brown and orange for free), collect the cards, and have the mother-to-be or grandmother-to-be read the wishes out loud to the whole group. There won't be a dry eye in the house.
