Whether you are the pregnant mother herself, getting ready for your Blessingway, or the friend, sister, cousin, sister-in-law, mum, aunt, mother -in-law, who is planning a Blessingway as a loving gift, we have some great tips on how to create a beautiful space for the celebration as well as details of some great businesses that can help at the end of this blog post. A Blessingway is all about making the Mum-to-be feel comfortable and special. Therefore, when planning what space to hold the celebration in, it's a good idea to consult the woman of honour. If that is you, have a think about the type of space and energy you would love to be amongst on the day.
Most of the ceremonies work well if everyone is seated in a circle type arrangement but it's certainly up to you whether this works or not. You can be on cushions on the floor or on chairs of some sort which may, of course, depend on the place/space you are in. You can be inside or outside, the choice is yours, and it may be dependant on weather and space. Bell tents certainly create a very special and sacred feeling space.
One thing to take into consideration is the comfort of your pregnant Mum-to-be. She may or may not be comfortable on the floor. If she is going to be on the floor lots of cushions is a great idea and if she is to be seated in a chair make sure it's a comfortable one for her. We adore this Peacock chair and think it makes a pretty spectacular throne for the goddess of the moment.
Make sure you have everything needed for the ceremonies close at hand to assist the smooth running of the celebration.
You may want to have everything set up in the one room/space or you may like to have the food separate. You can see more on food ideas here.
It is wonderful to have the dreamcatcher from your Beautiful Blessingways box hanging somewhere in view, to capture the love and positive energy of the event that will then be passed onto the new baby.
The main thing to remember is to create a space that is full of ease, joy and love, which amplifies and supports the beautiful positive energy.
