For my third baby, I had a Virtual Alphabet Wall Shower! It was a really fun idea to celebrate this baby in a special and memorable way. (Thanks Pinterest!)
How does an Alphabet Wall Shower work?
There was an electronic invite(Evite) sent out to close friends and family inviting them to gift a letter of the alphabet for the nursery wall. Out of town friends were also included. Each person was invited to write a little note on the back of their letter.
-Mild specs were provided-i.e. avoid pastel colors, approximate size, etc
-People sign up for a letter, so first come got the first pick! (I set aside 3 letters to do myself to help balance the design)
-Start early and set a DEADLINE! This is crucial so you can get the nursery done in time.
I was nervous. What if the letters don't go together? What if it doesn't look good? In the end, the total randomness worked out. The wall turned out awesome and my older kids loved it! Such a special and personal way to decorate the nursery and celebrate our baby!
