When a lady’s got ‘a bun in the oven’ a celebration always is in order! She deserves to be showered with love and gifted with new mum essentials that are going to make welcoming baby into the world easier.
If you’re the lucky friend or family member who’s accepted the task of planning this sweet affair, creating a beautiful experience that doesn’t break the bank is probably what you’re after. While it’s easy to take the usual approach of grabbing paper napkins, plastic plates and utensils, it’s even better—and cooler—do bring an eco-friendly edge to the planning process.
