She's the Queen for a day, the mother-to-be of a little prince or princess, the woman of the hour and so much more. Doesn't she deserve a tiara for that?
Back before we knew better, we used to make a crown for the lady of honor using a paper plate and all of the bows and ribbons from her pretty wrapped gifts.
Then, we had the audacity to make her wear it while we all laughed and laughed. Having been the victim or this type of baby shower crime, I have the photos to prove it hidden away, I know first-hand of the humiliation it causes.
Thankfully, back when I was forced to suffer this way, there was no Facebook or I'm sure the pain would have been much, much greater. There's a lot of truth to the meme that says, I'm glad there was no Facebook in my youth.
Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating the level of embarrassment a bit, and yes, it was all in good fun but now-a-days we have a much better and prettier option that is available to our mothers and I think after all they've been through what with building a new life inside of them, excessive weight gain and swollen feet, they deserve this much more refined way of decorating their heads for the enjoyment of their friends and family at the shower.
I found a bunch of really cute and inexpensive ones, like the one featured above, at Amazon but you can find them at just about any party store.
Do her a favor and get her one before someone at the shower suggests making it.

The History of Bridal Showers
Did you know that the custom of throwing a bridal shower dates back to the time when dowries were popular? Friends of the woman to be wed began giving what is now known as a bridal shower to compensate women who came from poor families who couldn't afford a proper dowry, or for a woman whose father didn't approve of the marriage and refused to pay.
