Subject: Baby Shower Favors-Help Please

Our church is giving a Grandma Baby Shower for a new grandmother and I am trying to come up with a different favor. I have, in the past, made the cup bootie, baby rattle from tootsie pops, diaper candy cup, lifesaver bottles, lifesaver pacifiers, hershey kiss with baby picture on bottom. I would appreciate any ideas anyone might want to share. I have Googled but didn't find much to make just buy. Thanks for your help.

How about making lifesaver covers to wrap around the candy? Perhaps someone on the board can give you a hand! Sample ideas here and more
The decorated cookies looked cute!

Clothespin Magnets
Sara Geaslin wrote me about a really terrific idea for a favor she made that is used in a game. It kills two birds with one stone and is such a cute idea. Here's what she said.

"I am currently planning a baby shower for my best friend's first baby. I have been to a couple of showers and the "don't say baby/bride,groom" game is always a success. I have seen it played with decorated wooden clothespins. The shower guests usually love the clothespins and want to keep them as a momento of the shower; but what do you do with them when you get home? I decorated the clothespins for my friend's shower and they turned out really cute. I painted them in the shower's theme colors and painted the baby's name on it, then attached a pink ribbon rose to the top. I didn't want all my hard work to be wasted and thrown away after the shower; so I attached a magnet to the back of the clothespin. The guests can put the magnet on the fridge after the shower and use it to clip a photo of the baby to the fridge. I thought this was a great idea and needed to be shared with fellow shower planners."


Baby blooms
"For my best friend's baby shower, I gave all of the guests a package of baby's breath seeds in a terra cotta pot decorated with cellophane, bows, and a little bird. Everyone thought they were great and unique — and most were successful in growing the flowers!"
— M. Barber

"For my baby shower, my mom and I bought coffee mugs and a flat of flowers. We put one flower in each of them — like a flower pot. Everyone thought it was the neatest idea!"
— Heather

"My friend and I have made pin cushions out of clean baby food jars. You just need a bit of fabric, some fabric stuffing, and a glue gun. It sticks with the baby theme and is a useful container for straight or safety pins."
— Karen Wivell, Mentor, Ohio

Thank you Crafty Me2 and Bev. I got some neat ideas for favors from your suggestions as well as the others. I can't wait to get started on some of them. Work sure does get in the way of crafting!

It's hard to come op with differtn ideas that we haven't seen a bunch of times already....

The shower i helped with be did Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Sticks. Dipped the Pretle Rod abt 1/2 way in Milk chocolte then dreizzled with the blue colored "white" chocolte melts. (we knew it was a baby boy on the way.)
We wrapped 3 Pretzles in a long narrow bag & tied with blue & white yarn yarn.
You could also do this with licorice sticks. There is a counry store near me that has licorice sticks in all difernt flavores ( the watermellon & strawberry are pink, the blueberry & oneother on are blue & the vanilla & coconut are white.)

cjl, Do you have a picture of the rattles made from tootsie pops? Bonnie

Re: Baby Shower Favors-Help Please -- cjl, 12:36:15 02/08/08 Fri [1]

Sorry, I don't. What I did was cut a circle of cloth, put on the tootsie pop and tied with a tiny ribbon. I then took a chennile stem and made a circle or loop and put on the end of the stick and wrapped the ends around the stick up to the sucker part. I hope this helps. I need to start keeping at least one of my favors for patterns.
I do appreciate everyones help.

I made my favors for my baby shower and they were very easy. I got pink votive candles and put them in a votive holder. I wrapped the whole thing in tulle and attached one of these poems with a thin white ribbon.

Here's a candle for you to light,
Once the stork has made its flight.
With the flicker of the flame,
Say a prayer in the baby's name.

A little candle for you to light,
Once the stork has made its flight.
The flame will glow to celebrate,
Baby _______'s arrival date.

This is a gift for you today,
So when I'm born you'll light my way.
And when that happy day is here,
Burn this candle and spread good cheer.

Here is a candle for you today,
to light when baby is here to stay.
When you light it's flickering flame
Say a prayer in baby's name.

There was not any author attached to the poems but here is the site for reference
