Remember how much fun you had celebrating the Royal Wedding? Now that the Royal Couple is expecting their first child, we recently hosted a similar celebration with our posse and want to encourage others to do the same.
Every expecting mom and newborn deserves the Royal treatment, not just Kate and the Prince(ss)-to-be. Have the shower benefit some local moms-in-need and their upcoming deliveries with new items that they really can use.
The Gracious Posse here in Richmond has donated gifts brought to the shower to the Pregnancy Resource Center of Metro Richmond. You can find other local beneficiaries through Care Net or your church or synagogue.
Our local beneficiary has asked for the following items for its clients:
- SUMMER MATERNITY – Large, X-Large & Plus Sizes
- Baby Wash, Shampoo
- Crib Sheets
- Diapers – Sizes 3-6
- Baby Gowns
- Onesies Boys, Girls & Neutral colors
- Pull Ups****
- Wipes- (Individually Wrapped) Refill size
- Laundry Baskets- (Dollar Tree)
- Baby Towels
- Baby Washcloths
- Vaseline/Diaper Rash Cream
You can print a shopping list of these items here.
One of the biggest items to plan for a baby shower is the food. Here is our menu for a tea-time baby shower.
We pulled out vintage baby clothes, bonnets and sterling cups and created a personalized and elegant setting for our Royal Baby Shower Benefit.
Easy to do, plus it gave us a chance to clean up some of these treasures.
Apparently 21st century baby showers call for games. We describe two that we played at our benefit shower in You Are Cordially Invited to a Royal Baby Shower Benefit ~ Are You Game? You can enter our Royal Baby Pool HERE.
Crown cookies are a perfect favor for your party guests.

And, of course, let us know if will be hosting a Royal Baby Shower Benefit. We would love to feature it here on The Gracious Posse.
