Flower Power Baby Shower, Wow...er

Last week I received the new Pottery Barn Kids catalog in the mail.  It featured all things Spring, as in the season.  Spring!  Read that exclamation point as a "what the hell!" and not a "yay!".  The first official day of winter was less than three weeks ago.  It was damn near balmy the last week of December.  The long, icy haul that we typically face here in the tri-state area has only just begun.  So, dear publishers of the Pottery Barn Kids catalog, hold your horses.

I was annoyed, as I'm sure you've gathered.  But then, I was inspired (side note: I've spontaneously undertaken a glass half full attitude in 2012, it's nice).  It's a bit too early to prepare for spring decor, but it's not too early to start planning spring time baby showers.  In fact, I'm guessing that anyone who's hosting a March, April or May baby shower this year is already starting to brainstorm the theme and pull together the guest list.

Here are a few ideas to help your shower planning process.

Excellent article! Love everything included. Kind of makes me wish I was planning another baby shower, but then again, for someone else this time! Thanks so much for featuring Kelsey's Treasure!
