A "Good Advice" Shower

I found this great idea for a Bridal Shower over on the BHG site. The theme is “good advice” for the wife-to-be. What better way to start a marriage than with some sage advice?

 When you send out your invitations, make sure to tell the guests the theme and that the gift should reflect a piece of wisdom that the guest comes up with. Examples from BHG are:

Advice: Celebrate every day. Gift: Champagne flutes or a beautiful cake plate.
Advice: Take turns cooking for each other.Gift: Favorite cookbook and kitchen tools.
Advice: Experience new things.Gift: Travel accessories.
You can include a pre-printed card in the invitation that the guest can fill in such as, “The secret to a successful marriage is…..” The card is presented with the gift, and all of the cards can be inserted into a small keepsake book for the bride to refer back to.
Create cupcake flags with different bits of advice on each one. Some may say “say I love you every day,” “don’t underestimate the power of a hug,” “allow each other to have a girl’s night or guy’s night sometimes,” “make each other laugh.”
Send your guests home with what else, but a fortune cookie filled with more good advice!

    Dollface(I love that name!), it’s true that the “good advice” theme would work well for baby showers also. You could also try to work the mother-to-be’s personality or favorite things into the theme. Favorite color(or nursery color), favorite interest or hobby, unique personality trait. Then using that theme, you can put a “baby” twist on it. It’s a nice way to make the shower about the mother AND baby; not just the baby.
