I went to a baby shower recently for a friend having her third baby. It was a surprise because most woman wouldn’t agree to a shower for a third child, but it was lovely and a great time. Most baby shower gifts are purchased from a registry. As a Chinese-American, I love to include Chinese tradition in an American occasion. I wish good luck and prosperity to the soon-to-be born baby and parents with a lucky envelope. The envelope color is red or gold to symbolize good luck with the Chinese character for luck on the front. Put money or a gift card inside to represent prosperity. I only like to give certain baby gifts and if they have already been purchased on the registry, I will give a lucky envelope gift. Even if I have purchased a registry gift, I will give some money in a lucky envelope to send wishes of prosperity.
Here were a few pictures from the baby shower.
The shower was at a cute cafe that served a French brunch menu all day. Love the French.
The table was decorated so pretty.
We waited patiently for the pregnant-mommy to show up.
It was a wonderful celebration and she was so surprised.
What made the time even better was the dads took the kids to the aquarium one block away.
Cheers to babies and prosperity,
The Dumpling Mama xo
