Anyone get one yet for LO? I think I've finally decided what I want.
I'm not sure if I'll do it for his 1st birthday (Nov 29) or my 30th birthday (Feb 1). I'm going to get an orange chrysanthemum. Orange is his birthstone and the mum is the birth flower for the month of November and is very meaningful in Japanese culture and DS is part Japanese (DH is 1/4). In Japan, it also represents perfection, which I thought was perfect for a child. They also symbolize optimism and joy.
I haven't decided if I'll get his name around it or just initials. I saw an idea where you get the name in script below the flower so it looks like a stem. I thought this would be tasteful and easy to add another flower when we have our second. Not sure where I will put it yet though. I'm going to take my time in coming up with the design because I want it to be perfect.
Anyone want to share what they've done or are thinking of?
