2nd baby, unsure big sister
I am throwing a shower for my sister’s 2nd baby girl, her first is 8 years old and she never had a shower when she was pregnant with my niece. Looking for good ideas on how to throw a shower that honors my niece as well as my sister and the new baby. Big sister is very apprehensive of having a little sibling, wondering about attention and being special. Also any good invitation wording to help with this, ideally it’d be nice if the guests brought a small gift for big sister but I don’t think it’s all that appropriate to ask for that. Thinking of going with a sweet pea theme, and varying it to include peas in a pod, princess and the pea, etc. Started with the following for invitation wording:
For eight joyous years Jane has a sweet pea,
a beautiful little girl named Ashley.
To her pod she adds one more,
her family of three will soon become four.
Because there was no first shower, and the space in age between the girls, my sister needs all the big items again but has plenty of clothes. Trying to find a tactful way to convey all this info without telling her life story in an invite!
