Party Plan
Baby Showers

Baby Showers are joyous celebrations of Mother and Baby... but if the thought of planning or attending one causes you regrets because of the boring themes and foolish games, we have exciting new ideas for you!  

The "showering" of a the "Mommy-to-Be" has been popular in many countries for hundreds of years but not in the style we know it today. Gifts were given when after a baby was born -- usually at the baby's religious christening or at the baby's debut (it was very common until the middle of this century that no one was invited to the house until the baby was at least a month old because of the fear of diseases). In the very late 1800's, Victorian ladies began having teas for mommy but not till after the baby was born because pregnant women did not appear in public. In the early 1900's, the teas transformed into "showers" (based on the "showering" of the bride before her marriage) and umbrellas became symbolic because it was customary for ladies to carry parasols when they attended these afternoon gatherings. Almost all of the gifts were handmade except the silver that was given to the babies by the grandmothers. In today's world, baby showers are customary and great fun -- especially for a first-time mommy and are referred to as "sprinkles" for mothers having second or more children.

Homemade Baby Food

Making your own baby food gives you the distinct advantage of controlling what goes into your baby's sensitive tummy. You determine how much, if any, sugar and spices your baby gets. Even when found on sale for as low as 50 cents per jar, producing your own is a much less expensive alternative to ready made. Making baby food is actually very simple with a few simple tools: a blender, food processor, baby food grinder or similar machine, a steamer or boiling pot, ice cube trays, and a few minutes of your time.
