Babies, Baby Showers, Pregnant Ladies…they’re everywhere!

Recently I have taken on the honor of planning and executing a baby shower for my “sister-in-law-ish” who is expecting in mid-November. I’m really excited, and can’t wait for all of the crafting that may ensue!

Well, the mother of the new mommy was not supposed to know the gender of the baby, as a surprise on it’s birthday. One thing led to another, and now she has found out. Long story short, we are still doing a “green” baby shower – color, theme and “method” – a big thing for me!

When I say “method” I mean, eco-friendly: reuse, recycle, reduce. I’m planning on making paper for the invites, reusing items and repurposing them, reducing landfill waste, getting eco-friendly tablewear and other earth friendly options. Can I do it? I’ll keep you updated.

One thing I wanted to do, was review some of the products that I have reviewed on this blog that can be applied or used for this party – or any party!

Invites – want some handmade invites and matching chocolates, but don’t have the time? Check out the Choco Crop Shop!

Need some crafty decorating ideas from the Craft Queen herself? Check out Meghan’s Baby Shower post!

Soothing gifts for the future mommy or giveaways/prizes? Check out Nourish, or our articles on Mother’s Day Gifts, and “green” baskets! Why not make a Paperback Picture Frame for the new mom?

Need some more inspiration? Check out Meghan’s review of the Paper Source blog. Great re-uses for junk mail. Mini-Albums. Paper Trunk. or Scrap Naturally.

Need eco-friendly tablewear? Check out my review of the new “Bare” brand from Solo!

Of course you need food at the party! Check out some articles we did on Organic Cookies and Pineapple Upsidedown Cupcakes!

After all of that delicious food, you’ll have to clean up! Check out our review on Scotch Brite’s new eco-friendly product line or Reynold’s Wrap “green” Foil or even Nature’s Source cleaning products.

What’s green, clean and great for new moms? Seventh Generation! They have great new mom gift packs, everything for anyone!

Good Luck to anyone else who’s planning a party – give us your green ideas!
