I hosted a baby shower for my sister who was expecting a boy. We knew it was going to be a boy, but she already had 4 boys (and 1 girl) and this was an "oops! shower," so I decided to do the shower in colors SHE loves -- bright pink and bright green.
I LOVE these favors. I stumbled upon the verse when I google'd "baby shower favors," then I ran with it. My friend/demo gave me the idea and loaned me her Sizzix, which I used for the tag and candle, which saved LOADs of time.
The bags are med gusset cellophane bags, tied with a bright green gingham ribbon I found at Michael's (or possibly Wal-Mart).
I did the same for a friend having twins. I used pink passion and tempting turquoise for those tags.
Nothing fancy with the candles or the holders -- for this shower I bought both at Pier I, for the twins' shower I bought everything at Garden Ridge.
