Having a baby shower

I am about to have my second baby shower for my first baby girl. I am 36 weeks pregnant, very anxious to finally have my baby with me. As I had a baby shower in Brazil 20 weeks ago when I was on vacation there, I am using most of the ideas to help my friends here put a nice baby shower for me.

I am making the center pieces of the. My idea is a styrofoam flower vase. There is a similar idea in this link: How to make a Pomander Flower Ball.

Let me tell you how my baby shower in Brazil was.

When I was 20 weeks pregnant I had a baby shower in my hometown with all my family and close friends. I couldn`t wait to see everything organized and decorated.
I had been lucky enough to find most of the things I want to buy in the US before heading to Brazil.
I have found amazing ideas on the internet. I am having a girl, so I picked the colors pink and brown, white and green would be the second colors in the decoration.

The invitation: I bought the card and the envelope, the ribbons at Michaels, the pink and brown paper is from Brazil. I made this invitation in about a month.


I was inspired by some ideas I took from these videos:
favors: Lembrancinhas de nascimento e maternidade

The tips I needed to start the decoration and the scrapbook favors I took from here.
