Any suggestions on how to word a Blessingway invitation? My MIL is hosting one for my SIL's 2nd baby and most of the family/friends being invited have never even heard of a Blessingway, let alone attended one. SIL suggested this:
It is traditional to give handmade gifts at a Mother Blessing. However, if you are not crafty, a "handmade" gift can come in many forms including:
- A poem to read or song to sing at the Mother Blessing
- A dish to be frozen and eaten after the baby arrives but before anyone feels like cooking
- "Coupons" for babysitting, house cleaning or dog walking to be "redeemed" after the baby is born
How can we make the wording simpler? Particularly since the this whole experience is WAY out of the comfort zone for most of the invitees; they're used to just buying something off of a registry! TIA!!
