No, the baby is not mine. That makes the welcoming home more fun – you get to decorate and bake and have fun with no pain and no adjustments! And it is not even to my house. Ok, I won’t rub that fact into the face of new moms. I recently watched my nieces while their parents welcomed a new baby girl into the world. We had a blast making a “Welcome Home” sign.
We also made cupcakes! Nothing says Birth Day like a giant “cupcake cake”.
And after the big sisters and big cousin decorated:
We even went to the baby’s house and hung up the sign and displayed the cupcakes before the new little one got home. We did not go all out with streamers and balloons – that would have been a blast and really fun, but I cannot imagine having to clean up old streamers and deflated balloons when the baby is three months old – because that is how it would go at my house. It would stay up until it decayed, so I kept it simple with a sign and cupcakes!
