Idea #1: If you are hosting a baby shower, make a wreath out of Baby’s Breath to welcome your guests. Then after the baby arrives use the same wreath on the couple’s front door as a quiet way to say, “Welcome home baby!” Baby’s Breath dries amazingly.

We did this for my sister four years ago and she loved it! The idea of Baby’s Breath (a.k.a. Gyp for Gypsophila) for a baby shower came from a book I have, Real Simple Celebrations (here’s a pic). I figured this flower was crazy affordable but I didn’t know it was also crazy fragrant! And I LOVE the way it looks when used in crazy mass abundance!

Idea #2: If you’re visiting a new Mom and baby, bring them a keepsake julep cup filled with a mass of beautiful Gyp. A beautiful gift for both: flowers for Mom and a silver cup to keep for baby. This idea was the basis for the workshop at the Moms Group last week. Here’s one pic from the night:
I’ll have more pics from the Moms Group hosted by my sister at her house in the next post. In the meantime, I can’t stop thinking about this Gyp wedding arrangement I found while brainstorming on Pinterest:
