As I metioned earlier, my BFF and her husband are expecting as as part of my "Best Aunite in the World" duties, I hosted not one, but two baby showers.
The colors for the party were pink and yellow and the theme was "Walk in the Sunshine"**. We worked baby footprints (like the ones below)into some of the elements...although the ones we used are pink and carried the shower theme into favors.
I started with some unrefined cosmetic grade beeswax and added equal proportions of shea butter, mineral oil. I also added citrus essential oil.

I wanted more of a whipped texture and so I whipped out the handy wand mixer. It took forever, because it cooled very slowly.

It was added to the bag (below) with other bath-related items including: a bath scrunchie, a duck-shaped pumice stone, some product samples and a made-by-me bath bomb.
Everyone loved the party and the food and the favors and most of all the honoree...can't wait to become an auntie. ~ksp
