"Pretty in Purple" Baby Shower
- Everything was purple! Purple table cloths, purple streamers, purple balloons, purple tissue paper "poofs" (Yeah, that's what I called them, that's probably not their "official" name.)...
- Scattered on each table was purple paint chips.
- I found a silver giraffe (piggy) bank that was super cute, tied a purple ribbon around its neck and put it on display. (The mother-to-be specifically mentioned an interest in giraffe's.)
|I found a purple Bible, where the guests highlighted their favorite verse and signed their name next to it. This is also where the gifts were recorded as a memorandum for mommy and baby.|
|The example I made, (hoping) attempting to inspire creativity.|
Due to the fact that her baby shower fell right around Easter season (and that her nursery is adorned in the color purple - which is deemed the color of royalty), it seemed appropriate to talk about our AMAZING King, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our King was crucified, buried and rose again for His glory! Because of this, we are forgiven for our sins! What an amazing gift! I read from John 18:33-40, 19:1-11, and 19:17-22 because this is where Jesus was flogged, crucified, and where He was mocked as "King of the Jews" with a crown of thorns, a purple robe, and a sign in Aramaic, Latin and Greek that stated simply, "Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews." I could think of nothing better to discuss: the Gospel, where we are forgiven of our sins, because of our amazing, LIVING King and what He accomplished on the cross!
