For my sister and brother-in-law’s baby shower, I used every ounce of my energy conceptualizing what I wanted the baby shower to look like sans the guests. I’m the type of person who won’t go shopping (for anything) if I don’t know what I want; with that said, any moment I got to think, I’d think. I’d mentally decorate my living room with pink, grey and white things, write it down, and then buy the supplies when I got the chance. I made sure a lot of the decorations were handmade since it would be more meaningful for my niece.
I got many compliments and comments about how “classy” the baby shower was—mind you, there were no silver platters or champagnes being served!
Through assisting others with classy wedding invitations in my heyday, I’ve acquired the skill of “having an eye” for clean designs. It has been both, a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because nothing I do is tacky, but a curse because I spend a lot of time on details.
