Grab your umbrellas, it is shower time!

As the saying goes, April Showers bring May Flowers...The air is warming up, flowers are blooming, and the sun is finally making its appearance. ChristieCreations is gearing up for the upcoming baby shower and bridal shower season.

Did you know that more newborns arrive during the late summer and early fall months of July, August, and September than during any other time of the year?

Paul Sutton, a demographer for the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics, says it makes sense if you think about what happens nine months earlier in most of the country — the weather gets colder and people spend more time indoors with their sweeties. Also, some people plan their baby's birth to coincide with summer vacations, especially teachers and other people who get summers off.

According to, the most popular months for a wedding are, in order, June, September, August, May, October and July.

So with the baby and bridal shower seasons quickly approaching, let's discuss those special options for making YOUR gift stand out from the rest.

Most individuals who receive a Baby Clothing Blooming Bouquet or Kitchen Towel Blooming Bouquet have never seen anything like it!

The majority of the Baby Blooming Bouquets are purchased to serve double duty as a baby shower centerpiece and gift!

Recently the smaller Baby Bib Blooming Bud Bouquet was purchased to be held by a large stuffed animal bear for a Teddy Bear themed baby shower.

Kitchen Towel Blooming Bouquets are ideal for double duty as well. Why not purchase multiple Kitchen Towel or Wash cloth/Spa Blooming Bouquets to be used as centerpieces on the bridal shower tables.

As you play Baby Bingo or other shower game, the winners can select a Blooming Bouquet centerpiece as their prize.

This is a unique twist to the now common "gift basket" centerpiece option. The blooming bouquets are far more beautiful, unique, and affordable. Prices start at just $ 14.95. Who can make a gift basket for $ 14.95?

As always our Blooming Bouquets, can be sent directly to the gift recipient and wrapped in clear cellophane with a bow (at your request and a nominal fee). All orders receive a complimentary custom 4x6 glossy photo gift card with your personal greeting inside and a list of items in the bouquets written in elegant calligraphy. (see previous post for more information)

ChristieCreations LOVES custom orders. We can use items directly off a mother to be or bride to be's gift registry or her style, theme, and color selection can be matched.

A custom order was received for a Baby Clothing Blooming Bouquet for a dolphin themed baby shower. ChristieCreations matched the items to the invitation while adding two dolphin accents to the outside of the bouquet. The client was thrilled.

Let ChristieCreations do all the hard work making the perfect, pretty, yet practical shower gift. We do the work... you get all the oohs and ahhs.
