THEN IT'S MAYTAG FOR YOUI „._ 129.95 Adams Appliance Co. Inc. By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Frew Food Editor A spring baby shower on the calander for an expectant mother in your neighborhood? Then try a new idea — give her a baby-food party, so she won't be deluged with frilly miniature garments the newcomer will swiftly outgrow. Ask each person coming to the party to think ahead to Baby's needs when he arrives in this wide and yonderful world. Some of the guests can bring starting cereals, cans of stmined orange juice anc strained meats; Other guests can. bring cans or jars of strained vegetables and fruits. Eight-ounce bottles for formula and 4-ounce bottles for orange juice and water might also be included. If each guest put* a sticker on the container of baby food she brings, and adds the date and her own name, the guest of honor will enjoy the reminder when she feeds Baby. Other useful shower gifts along the feeding line are a small silver spoon, a baby dish and mug, and and sterilizing equipment for formula. And how about something for Mother herself? Why not a colorful smock or bed jacket to wear when she's giving Baby his meals? If party funds permit, present the shower gifts in a real bassinet sized for early sleeping needs and handy toting, both at home and outdoors. The bassinet can take on a party air with a wide ruffle of crepepaper. To make the bassinet ruffle, cut a strip of pink or blue crepe paper as deep as the bassinet, plus 3 inches to extend over the top. Be sure that the paper is long enough to go around the basket three times. Gather the paper on the sewing machine 3 Inches from one edge to form the top ruffle then attach it to the bassinet with thum tacks. Decorate the ruffled bassinet with a pink or blue satin ribbon bow and sprays of pink or blue flowers, choosing the color of the flowers to contrast with the bow.' Of course your shower guests have to be fed. Favorite kinds of sandwiches and coffee, with olives and nuts, are a good bet. For dessert, why not carry out the baby - food theme?
