A few of my Favorite Things
Inspired by the classic film “The Sound of Music” and its most famous song, we created a day celebrating the Mom-to-Be and all of her favorite things.
Anyone who knows the Mom-To-Be knows that she loves a little glitz and glam in her life. She loves glitter and sparkly things so we decorated with sequined table runners and squares on all the tables, and filled the room with her favorite purple tulips.
To keep everyone having fun there were some great games to celebrate the new mom-to-be. Guests took a guess at the Mom-to-Be’s age in some fun photos provided by her family, then they guessed how many candy pacifiers were in a jar, and even tried their luck with baby themed scratch cards! In addition to the games, two of her oldest friends made a banner with pictures of when she was just a baby herself!
Guests were also asked to bring a book to start the baby’s library, and share their favorite nursery stories with the newest addition to the Brown family.
While the Mom-to-Be opened all of her beautiful (and tiny) baby presents, everyone treated themselves to cupcakes and then filled up a favor box with her favorite cookies. These “Brown Paper Packages Tied up with String” were a big hit, and we displayed them on a table decorated with a little animal print (another one of her favorites).
