Present a "baby's corsage" to the mommy-to-be and small flower corsages to the soon-to-be grandmothers. Decorations and photo for the "baby corsage" are provided later in this article.
Decorate the mommy-to-be's chair with helium-filled balloons. A touch of ribbon and fresh flowers intertwined with imitation ivy is very festive.
Ask one of the guests to hand the mommy the gift, take it from her after it is opened to pass around the room. She can also collect the torn wrapping paper and put it in a trash bag.
Provide envelopes to each guest, asking them to address it to themselves. When the bride writes her thank you notes, this will save her a lot of time. (Ahead of time, ask the bride to provide the thank you note envelopes to you).
