7 DIY Projects to Make Your Baby Shower or Bridal Shower Memorable

Shower a friend or family member with love when you throw them a baby or wedding shower. A new baby or new marriage is a chance to bring loved ones together to celebrate, but you also want to honor the parent or bride or groom-to-be with memories they’ll cherish forever. To be the host or hostess with the most(ess), some of our HART ambassadors have created 7 projects that are sure to be remembered by everyone.
