Baby Shower Decorations

After starting my blog and posting my “About Me” I was in a mad dash to finish all my crafty ideas for Brooklyn’s baby shower. After the baby shower I had three weeks to plan for a surprise birthday party (more to come) so I am finally ready for my first post. I am new at this so be patient with me. :)
I was very excited when Jordan and Ashley decided to go with Pink and Brown for Brooklyn’s room, so I automatically started thinking of things I could make for the baby shower that could also be used in her room.
For the diaper cake I used one box of size 2 diapers, baby powder, and a bottle for the center. I selected three coordinating fabrics to wrap around the outside of each tier and then used coordinating ribbon for the center of each fabric. My sister and I made 50 different flowers using pink and brown felt and fabric used around the tiers. The two larger flowers (white and pink) are headbands. I lined the top of each layer with pink tulle so I could glue the flowers to the cake without destroying the diapers. (I thought I would never get myself unstuck from the tulle.) I then made a bow with pink and brown ribbon for the topper.
These started as boxed chipboard letters that I painted brown and then covered with pink and brown paper. I then decided to try something new so I made the layered flowers by burning the edges and then added pearl accents.
Last year I co-hosted a baby shower with my friend Michele from the Scrap Shoppe where she made this adorable frame (but in blue) so I decided to make my own version for the mommy to be. 

My 1st Banner – I really had a lot of fun making this banner. I used my Silhouette to cut the banner, doilies, and letters. I went around the edge of each banner piece and the doilies with brown ink and ran lace around the edge to give them a vintage look. For the letters I used a glue pen and fine glitter around the edge of the letters to add a little sparkle. To separate the words I cut two extra doilies and then layered flowers. I then used a ribbon I had used on the diaper cake to tie it all together. Ta Dah!

Using my newly learned technique to make layered flowers, some rolled tulle and a doily I purchased I made this cute corsage for the mommy to be.

I made Words of Wisdom cards for everyone to share their wisdom for the parents to be and made this cute little book so they would all be in one place for them to be able to refer back to when needed.

I made these cute diaper and burp clothe cupcakes following the tutorial over at the Scrap Shoppe. Michele made these for the baby shower we co-hosted and I thought they were just adorable.

I made this diaper wreath to hang on the door when everyone entered the shower, but after the shower I had 50 handmade flowers and this wreath needed a little something extra if it was going to be in Brooklyn’s room so I decided to take some of the flowers I had on the diaper cake to spruce up this wreath and this is what I came up with….

Well I have officially finished my first blog post. I hope you find inspiration through some of My CreativiT.
