Spring has brought new life to my yard: grass is green, flowers are blooming, and the robins are nesting. I seem to know several women that have spring bringing new life to their homes too…babies everywhere. It’s never too early to think green, especially when kids are involved. If you’re planning a baby shower, here are 5 eco-friendly ways to add some green to your event.
1- Adorable Seeded Carriage Cards: surprise guests with the baby’s gender, or choose a neutral color. These personalized cards are perfect favors (plant the seeded carriage to grow wildflowers) or thank you cards. Available with our without envelopes and baby carriage is available in blue, pink, lavender, petal, green, yellow, or cream.
2- Upcycled Paper Flowers– looking for unique centerpieces? Turn your nursery theme into flowers. Go from centerpiece to room decor with customized paper flowers: Dr. Seuss, Winnie-the-Pooh, Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter, you name it! Makes a great favor or game prize too.
3- SpaRitual mini-polish– these “baby” size bottles make an adorable favor for your guests. Since they’re free of toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP (they’re vegan too!) they are safer for the mom-to-be. Available in great colors, gender specific or not!

4- Delightful organic 1/2 bar Blissful Botanica soaps: since it is a shower…organic soap makes perfect sense! Arrange the 1/2 bars on a tiered cake tray and they look like little desserts. Mix and match amazing handcrafted bars of lemon-poppyseed, ginger-lime, coffee, citrus, oatmeal lavender, or lemongrass.
5- Organic hand-crocheted baby blanket: want the perfect gift that will a lifetime? This organic blanket will become a fast favorite soft, cozy, and machine washable! Choose from one of ours, or customize your own colors. http://www.favortheearth.com/cgi-bin/search.cgi?topSearch=Blanket
