Money Gift Trees For Baby Showers
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There seem to be more reasons for people to bring monetary gifts to a baby shower. One of those reasons can be as simple as the sex of the baby being unknown. Another reason would be that the guest does not want to get a duplicate gift. A note on the invitation asking for a certain donation to pin to the money tree at the party would be an idea. That is a great Shower idea as well. For the parents who already have purchased everything for the baby or maybe this is their second child, a Money Tree Party is very nice for the new parents.

How to make a Money Tree for a Baby Shower

Use a silk tree. The best size to use for a baby shower is a 2-3 ft tree. Depending on othe time of year, it could be a Christmas Tree, or you can get some really nice smaller trees from craft stores like Michaels or Wal-Mart. Get some mini Christmas lights and decorate the tree with that. For a party where the sex of the baby is unknown, use a white light. For a boy you can use a blue light and for a girl, try the purple lights. Multi-colored lights work great as well for all baby showers. Once the lights are on the tree, place mini clothes pins on the branches. These can be bought at craft stores or dollar stores. A neat idea also would be to have mini envelopes for the guests to place their money in. The guests can clip their envelope to the tree. Another idea is just to clip the money to the tree either folded accordian style or flat.

Baby Showers with a Money Theme are becoming quite popular. Instead of a Money Tree, there are wishing wells in the shape of Baby Carriages or Bassinettes. There are also money theme diaper cakes with bills that are crisp and new and shiny new coins. Money really does make the world go round. Why not throw a themed shower with "Money really does grow on trees" as the theme?

For treats at the shower get some chocolate coins, have gold and silver as the colours in the theme and accent with pink, blue, yellow and greens. Pin Monopoly Money around the room for an added twist of fun. Play games with money as the theme. Games such as The Price is Righ for Baby Showers where people have to guess the price of the gifts that everyone brought. The one closest to the right price wins a prize.
