Party Recap

Godh Bharai /Indian Baby Shower .
The ceremony celebrates the mom-to-be and prays for the well-being of both mother and child. On this day, the prospective mother is dressed in almost bridal finery. Usually silver platters with assorted Indian sweets and jewelry and new sarees are displayed. The ceremony is also called the bangle ceremony because all the women place bangles on the mom-to-be's hands as a symbol of their blessings. By the end of the ceremony, she usually has bangles all the way up to her elbows! In the past, the mom-to-be wore these until the time of the delivery. During labor, she would remove the bangles one by one, to take her mind off the pain of contractions.
Gifts, usually of money (since traditionally don't buy anything for the baby until the baby is born), are given to the future parents. Traditionally, baby showers were given only for the family's first child, and both men and women attended.
An inviting color palette of green and hot pink coupled with gorgeous patterns and fabrics help transform a indian restaurant into a gorgeous celebration.
