Guest Post from Adventures of D and V

While I am getting used to having a newborn around some wonderful bloggers has stepped in to help out with some fabulous guest posts!  Don't worry I will be popping in here and there to give updates and of course do the Show Off Your Stuff Party!   We have a great line up for you all!  

Up Next is Veronica from Adventures of D and V

I am so excited to be guest posting today while Fawnda is snuggling with her new little bundle of joy! I'm Veronica, the "V" in Adventures of D and V. My husband Daniel is the "D". From big adventures like learning to cook gluten free, to digging out and finishing our basement, to little adventures like new favorite things and lessons God is teaching us, we love living each adventure together. The Adventures of D and V is a lifestyle blog that is about...well, our life!  

Spring is the season for showers. Baby showers, bridal showers, rain showers. Well, 2 out of the 3 are fun! I wanted to share a fun activity for a baby shower that I have done several times. It is an activity and a gift for the Mommy all at the same time. I call it a Baby Shower Prayer Wreath. It all starts with an empty wreath and some fake flowers (I got all my supplies at The Dollar Store.)

and, of course...

my glue gun!
Start by using the flowers to decorate the wreath before the shower... 
There is really no wrong way to do this part. Just whatever you think looks good.
I wanted to keep mine kind of sparse and simple, yet pretty.

Next I added a little banner on a ribbon across the middle with the words "Dear God, Thank you for little girls."  (Of course you would need to change it if the baby was a boy!)

The next part of the wreath decorating happens at the shower. 
One meaningful thing to do at a baby shower is to spend some time praying for the baby, Mommy, and Daddy. Using small strips of paper (I used pink card stock) and fine tipped pens, have each guest write a short prayer on their strip of paper. After sharing the prayers, weave the prayer strips into the wreath. You can kind of see the pink paper strips on the top right side of the wreath in the picture above. You wont be able to read all of the writing once the strips are woven into the wreath, but that's ok. Just having the wreath hanging up in the baby's room will be a reminder to the new mommy that people are praying for her!
