You can make pretty candle party favors for the guests with a babyshower-personalized touch. Begin by getting some small scented candles in whatever colors work with your shower theme or the traditional pink or blue for the baby's gender. Next, get a yard or so of mesh material (or buy pre-cut pieces) in a color to match the candles (white mesh for light pink or light blue candles will look very pretty).
Using colored computer labels (to match the candles) print out the mommy to be's name and date of the shower and apply one label to each candle.
Wrap two candles in a piece of mesh using small paper plates as a tray and tie them up with some ribbon. Then, attach a small card to the ribbon and write a small cute message, such as 'Thanks for attending Lisa's shower!' or whatever you'd like to say.
If you need a centerpiece you can gather all the candle mesh bags and place on a pretty platter to put on the main table throughout the shower. Then, when people start to leave ask them to each take one mesh candle bag on their way out.
