Eco-Friendly Baby Shower

Our friend Jennifer Berry of Earth911 turned us onto written by a a mother and daughter duo who have a passion for family celebrations and being good to the Earth. In this video, Corey and Lynn show us how to throw an eco-friendly (and very creative) baby shower. Check it out here for unique gifts, easy party decorations and special family traditions.

A few of my favorite ideas:

1. Each guest brings a bead for the mama-to-be. During the shower, the beads will come together to create a necklace, each piece representing a friend or family member.

2. Give each guest a bees wax candle to take home as a "door prize". When mama is in labor, or when the baby is born, everyone lights their candle and sends positive thoughts and warm wishes to the new baby all at the same time!

3. Wrap your gift in a receiving blanket instead of wrapping paper.
