At a baby shower, pictures and presents go hand in hand. A baby shower scrapbook is a great way of capturing these special memories. The new mom to be will love having a scrapbook designed for her by her dedicated party host, devoted friends, and family. This beautifully designed scrapbook is then dedicated to the mom to be and the new bundle of joy that will be arriving any day now. Everyone can enjoy this perfect addition to any baby shower.
When the guests start to arrive at the baby shower, have a previously selected page of the scrapbook that you have designed for the shower for each guest. Utilize papers that match your baby shower’s theme. Rather the theme is Winnie the Pooh or trucks and trains, plan your scrapbook accordingly. Use pink pieces for a new baby girl and blue pieces for that new little boy. If the sex of the new baby has been chosen to remain a secret until delivery, choose papers with colors that are not too gender specific. Any pages that say “Welcome little one” or have bottles and rattles on them will fit perfectly here. Pages of green and yellow will be the best colors if this is the case at the baby shower you are planning.
Have your party guests write a personal note to the mom to be and what they brought her at the baby shower. Have them decorate the page as they wish. Take pictures of each guest alone and have one big group shot taken too. Add these pictures and any others taken during the duration of the party to the scrapbook. Be sure to capture the mom to be opening presents and enjoying a big slice of her cake. Make sure the scrapbook includes an information page about the shower, including the time, date, and the place where the baby shower was held.
A scrapbook for the mom to be will be a keepsake that can be forever kept and cherished. The new mom can look at this book from time to time and reflect upon the day she shared with friends and the new start that was taking place in her life. As the child grows older, he or she can view the book and see pictures of when they were just a little bump in mommy’s belly. For the child and parent, this scrap-booking gift is as special as the baby shower itself.
