A good friend of mine is about to become a grandma for the first time. She has been an amazing grandma/mom figure to so many, including my son, and has helped me in more ways than I can count. Another friend and I decided that since she has done so much for us, and for our kids, that we should do something for her. Hence, the Grandma-To-Be Party!
Thing is, there's not a lot of party planning ideas for this kind of party out there in cyber space. It's a shame because I would have loved if someone had thrown a party like this for my mom. After all, the role of Grandma is second only to the role of parent, and should be celebrated!
I thought I'd share with you what we have come up with so far...
The Theme: "To Grandmother's House We Go..." (Little Red Riding Hood)
Decor: red & white gingham with touches of aqua and a little bit of burlap, Greens and twigs in vases
The Invitation (designed by me):
The Food: Lots of baked goods (pies, cookies, cupcakes). My co-host is starting a cake/cupcake business, so we'll be set! Other goodies will include sandwiches, fruit and salads.
Party Favors: Little baskets with chocolates or homemade cookies like this:
I'll share more of the details as the party gets closer.
So what do you think? Do you have any other ideas?
