More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners
We have a store near by who sells all kind of stuff to make your decorations yourself. They have everything for each seasonal occasion like Christmas, St. Valentine, Easter etc. So I was quiet surprised that the main theme in May was birth celebrations ! Maybe the decorator was expecting a baby, because a big part of the store was dedicated to celebrate the birth of a baby !
It's the use to distribute "dragées" (whole almonds coated with a sugar shell in various colors) when a baby arrives. Not so long ago the color was pink for a girl and blue for a boy. But this has changed as you can see !
The dragées are filled into these little boxes or in the little bags
You can also paint them yourself. These are distributed to family and friends
For the table I saw this decoration
and pacifiers as napkin rings
two examples of the dragée presentation
and table decorations. What a difference between the white, pink and pastel blue of the past !
As in May there are also Confirmations and Communions there was a little decoration too for girls
and finally a lot of couples marry in May so there was a little bit for the wedding cake too.
