Baby Shower

22 Jul

I recently helped my mother-in-law host a baby shower for her beautiful daughter who’s expecting a baby girl.  I took care of the decorations and thought I would share some pictures.

I made 5 of these giant tissue paper pom poms which were super easy once I got the hang of them.  Here’s the tutorial that I followed for them.  I wish I had taken a picture of them hanging at the shower, they looked so pretty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I made this banner using my Cricut machine, super sweet but very simple.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Cricut also came in hand for these recycled baby food jar shower favours.  I used Goo-Gone to remove the label glue, decorative tape to go around the jar and outside of the lid, and card stock for the tops.  I filled these little jars with yellow and purple candies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was hard to come up with a truly purple punch for the shower.  Every recipe I tried that claimed to be purple ended up being a dark red.  In the end I used grape Kool-Aid and 7up.  To make a slightly lighter purple, I would have added another bottle of 7up, making it equal parts of each drink, but I ran out of room in the drink dispenser.  It was surprisingly good, reminded me of my childhood!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The purple theme all came from the design of this amazing cake by Lara Kozan.  It was as yummy as it looks!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a keepsake for the mother to be and baby, I made these Wishes for Baby cards that the guests all filled out.  I think they would be sweet added into the baby book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a fun day, now the hard part will be waiting patiently for 10 whole weeks before I can meet my new niece!
