I was looking back at pictures, and found so many soaps I made as shower favors. Showers are such happy occasions. Someone is either getting married or having a baby. I’ve always thought a soap shower favor was a great gift, even before I was making soap. It smells great, is useful and everyone needs it.
This soap and sugar scrub combo was the most recent favor I made. My girlfriend Lisa’s daughters was getting married and the wedding had a country feel. The bride wanted mason jars so Lisa bought the jars and I made the scrub and soap. They are both scented with Lavender and Lemongrass. She did a great job of presenting the favor, don’t you think?
This was one of the first soap shower favors I made. Kristen went to high school with my son and married his good friend Joe. Joe is also my friend Rose’s son. I was so excited to make these soaps. Kristen’s sister-in-law Diane asked me to make them. Diane is my graphic designer. She, along with her friend Maria, started a company called Digho. If you like my logo, labels and marketing material, thank her! Digho designed the label for Kristen’s soap. Kristin and Joe now have 3 children, and their oldest (the baby these soaps were for) is almost 8.
All of these soap shower favors are so cute! Some people add washcloths to their bags and others add those nylon mesh scrubbie thingies (I never know what to call them). Either way, they’re a great addition to the bag.
Of course, these soap shower favors are special, cause they were for my daughter’s baby shower. I looked for pictures of the soaps I made for my other grandsons shower, but couldn’t find any. They were probably snatched up too quickly!
I’m grateful for all the smiles of the moms-to be and brides-to-be when they smelled their showers favors and for the memories these pictures have brought back. But what I’m especially grateful for, is the opportunity to be a small part of someone’s special day.
What are you grateful for this week?
Yours in Gratitude,
