April showers indeed bring May flowers, and baby and bridal showers also flood the month for spring and summer births and brides. The major components of any baby shower or bridal shower include these basics:
A mom-to-be or bride-to-be
Guests with gifts
Cake or cupcakes
Those are the essentials, though luncheon, buffets, finger foods and brunch are just as common as coffee, tea, lemonade or late afternoon and evening wine coolers. It’s a refreshing time of friendship, centered on honoring a blushing bride or first-time or 10th-time mom or somewhere in between.
April has two flowers represented, the daisy and the sweet pea. Daisies are beloved for their whimsical nature and connotation of purity, innocence and cheerfulness. Sweet pea is an annual climbing plant native to the southern Italy region of the world and known for its fragrance.
One of the sweetest multi-tasking items at a shower is the flower vase-place card combination. There’s space for water and a flower or two, plus a place card holder. Order a couple bouquets from bloomstoday.com, then divide blossoms among the little vases.
For every baby or bridal shower, these sweet vases with fresh flowers from bloomstoday.com can be the favor as well, and everyone can take one home for a keepsake of the wonderful shower with a fresh flower stem already in it!
