Throwing a baby shower for an eco-conscious mom? Here are a few eco-friendly favors that are perfect for a baby shower. Of course, you can always opt to make your own favors, such as fresh baked mini muffins wrapped in small kitchen towels instead of cello bags.
The Arbor Day Foundation offers these beautiful little trees that are perfect party favors. Guests can plant the trees at home (indoors or out, weather permitting) and watch this beauty grow.
