Candle gift with poem for baby shower/bridal shower?

I recently went to bridal shower and the bride to be was given a gift of a huge basket with all these candles in different colors and a poem - the poem explained when and which to light each candle. I've asked the bride and she doesn't want to give up the secret. I heard there is one for a baby shower -- does anyone know either/both?

    A Basket of Candles

    For [insert Bride's name]

    A basket of candles that come in a pair

    In all different colors, for you two to share

    The white ones burn first

    They are wrapped in white lace

    To celebrate your first married night

    In your new chosen place.

    The green pair is taller, and also much thinner

    Burn with the first company, you have over for dinner.

    The dark blue candles are for after your first fight

    Use them to burn while making up all night.

    Pink candles set the mood and pave the way

    For your first married Valentine’s Day.

    Now, when your first year of marriage is through

    The cream anniversary pair, will light for you two.

    Red candles aflame, both your futures are bright

    Celebrate promotions you’ve worked toward with all of your might.

    By this time we hope, maybe, just maybe

    You can light the purple ones, on the birth of your baby.

    And just when you thought you’d put these away

    Take the light blue ones out-for your fifth anniversary day.

    Now just one more pair left - for the big 2 5

    The anniversary pair that will keep your love alive.

    Congratulations [insert Bride and Groom's names]

    On the start of your forever

    May the two of you always be happy together

    And burn these candles

    Just the way we said

    But please don’t forget-blow them out before bed!

    If I can find the baby shower one I will post it...

    Hope this helps :0)

    i dont know if you can purchase on but my neice gave me a basket with new born baby clothes and baby bath stuff in it and enclosed a personal poem for my baby, she also hadthe poem made into a wall transfer for her to put on her bedroom wall - i think this was a genius idea which looks amazing in her room and is so special.
