Instead of buying a bunch of things for the baby, we opted to pamper mommy-to-be with massage sessions. She is carrying all the load now so she deserves all the pampering we can give her. Of course, a friend arranged a large basket of organic baby products of the little one as well. (visit beebeeworks.com for organic baby gift ideas) We didn't play games. Instead we chatted away, and enjoyed a lovely meal at Tommy Bahamas. Why slave over a meal at home when we can just enjoy a lovely meal out in the sun and there is no clean up in the end. Of course, what is a party without flowers and home bake Bouchon cookies. These cookies are delicious and easy to make for any event or self indulgence. Home baked Bouchon cookies are my favorite food to give to friends. Cookie Mix is available at William Sonoma. My very talented gal pal arranged all the floral pieces. It is hard to be Martha Stewart without the entire support team behind her but it can be done when a few savvy friends get together to plan an easy elegant baby shower.
