This post is part of the Virtual Baby Shower being held at Multicultural Kid Blogs. For more details and to share your own posts, see the bottom of this page.
It seems incredible to me that it has been nearly a year and a half since my baby shower for Little Monkey; yet, when I try to remember our family without his dimpled grin and bright spirit, it seems a lifetime ago.
Today I am sharing the favors I made for his baby shower, inspired by a quotation that to me encapsulates all the hope we carry for the new little beings that enter into this world and the joyous burden that falls to us as parents to help them reach their potential:
“Every child is potentially the light of the world.”
– Bahá’í Writings
To make these I first create the template in Publisher (download the pdf version here) then printed them on cardstock.
These make lovely cards as is, but I wanted to send everyone home with a little something special, so I simply glued a scented tea light onto each. I kept several for myself, and they still smell heavenly!
At Multicultural Kid Blogs, we consider ourselves a (very large) extended family, and so today we are taking time to celebrate those members that are about to or have recently welcomed new little ones into their lives. We are so happy for them!
The co-hosts of this blog hop, listed below, have each written posts related to baby showers or more generally about becoming parents, plus we’d love for you to link up yours below.
Also be sure to visit our Facebook page to leave your advice and well wishes for our guests of honor!
