Planning a baby shower can be difficult, especially with winter underway – temperatures are dropping across much of the country and many people want nothing more than to barricade themselves indoors, not rush out to the next social gathering. But when it's time to celebrate the impending arrival of a new baby, why not plan a seasonal shower that will pair perfectly with the cold weather?
We're not suggesting a snow-themed shower – in fact, quite the opposite! Instead of celebrating the cold, host a shower that embraces the best about staying warm in the harshest winter weather.
Make a note on the invitations that encourages guests to come dressed in their comfiest clothes and have lots of cozy blankets on hand. Delicious treats such as hot chocolate and homemade macaroni and cheese will warm up pals from the inside out. If you have a fireplace, light a fire and toast marshmallows as you open presents and bestow advice upon the mom-to-be.
Baby shower favors should reflect the wintry theme as well. Personalized lip balms will be a welcome treat to keep pouts hydrated and smooth. Pack loose tea or cocoa mix in personalized tins for a soothing beverage to be enjoyed later.
