Are you planning a baby shower for someone special and not sure where to begin? Begin with Green! An Eco Friendly Baby Shower not only will tell that special Mother to be that she is loved but that you love your environment too!
Here at Argington we promote a healthy and Green way of living. Sustainability and conformity is not only built into our products but into our way of life. Now, when we say “Go Green” we don’t simply mean to bring your own bags to the grocery store (which is a good idea by the way!). We believe that living a Green lifestyle can start at home with our children. Children’s products that promote a green way of living don’t have to start after the baby arrives or at the supermarket!
Going Green can not only save our planet, but it can save you money as well! To better your life and begin “Going Green,” we encourage that you incorporate simple changes into your lifestyle that are fun, easy and won’t bog you down like the summer heat.
The Internet is a wonderful thing! By sending out electronic invitations, you can save on time and money when asking your guests to celebrate this wonderful occasion. Evite.com has brilliant invitation templates for any occasion and is easy to use and deliver.
Instead of making a diaper cake out of environmentally unfriendly diapers, choose to design your diaper cake with cloth diapers instead! Sites like growinstyle.com can inspire you to create the fanciest diaper cakes that would make the Cake Boss Drool! To incorporate Green into your theme, try placing lush plants that your guests can take home with them after the festivities are over.
Party Favors and Gifts
Nothing says I love you to your Mother to be than a unique and memorable activity for mom to be as well as the baby. Provide guests with an organic white onesie or t-shirt and non-toxic paints or natural dyes (you can find a lot of great natural dye ideas, such as beet juice for red color, etc.) and decorate your personal onesie for the Mommy to be. Guests will have tons of fun decorating the shirts for baby and it makes for a personal gift.
If you are purchasing items from the registry, make sure to encourage guests to purchase products that are affordable and define the term Green. Argington offers a line of baby furniture that is Eco-friendly and convertible so that the Mother-to-be can reuse as her child grows older (or for baby number two!).
Healthy, nutritious meal options will be greatly appreciated by the mom to be (and baby of course) as well as the guests. Not to mention, another perfect opportunity to play off the green theme with color. Organic green salads, fruit salads, green apples, green grapes, kiwis are all good starters and can be made into an interesting salad appetizer.
RAW Vegan meals are scrumptious as well as super nutritious. Blend up some green smoothies to fit the ‘Go-Green’ theme and shock your guests with how green and delicious smoothies really are!
Baby Shower Games are always fun and these game ideas are the perfect addition to your Mother to be’s special day:
Guess the Baby Game
Instruct your guests to bring a baby photo of them to the shower. Place all photos on a bulletin board or use magnets to put them on the fridge. Have guests try to match each baby photo to which it belongs to. In the end, have every guest share their favorite past time story of their childhood.
Decorate my bottle
Guests can use their creativity for Decorate-My-Bottle activity. Purchase BPA-Free, clear baby bottles and a variety of permanent colorful markers. Your guests can use their imagination and create unique, one of a kind decorated baby bottles. If you would like this to be prize oriented, everyone can anonymously vote for which is their favorite.
