Use “recycled” materials such as ribbons or pieces of foil molded into shapes to provide color and reflect light.
Create a tee: Purchase new or gently used organic baby t-shirts and have guests decorate with soy-based paints. Use an organic tee shirt or baby blanket as a guest book for shower attendees to inscribe special messages or thoughts to the new mom.
Add-a-bead: As each guest to bring a bead to string into a bracelet that the new mom can wear during labor and after her baby’s birth to remind her of her circle of support.
