Want to do something special for a baby shower? If you are the new mom, or a friend of the new mom, ask everyone coming to the shower to bring a special bead and to explain the meaning of the bead in their card. Bring the beads together to create a special necklace for the new mom to bring to the hospital during labor. Most women relish having a focal point, or something they can feel that reminds them of the support of their friends and family. Afterwards, she and the baby will have something to cherish that commemorates the amazing occasion. Put the cards in the new baby book so she can remember all of the meanings and feelings behind her beautiful necklace.
