So I haven't had a post since March! Yikes! And this post has been long over due, considering the shower was in October and Baby Olivia was born in November. Crazy how time flys. Anyways, this Welcome to the World Baby Shower really was a sunshine event to remember. And it was packed with a lot of DIY projects that I hope inspire you for your next party.
We created a hanging sun with the words "Welcome to the World Little One."
Toppers aren't only for desserts. Think about embelishing your flower arrangements too!
Maybe my favorite DIY project, we created custom 3-D Sun Centerpieces. You'll need a 2" styrofoam ball, yellow paint, a 12" stick, white construction paper and a pot to stick the final sun into. All you do is paint the ball yellow then cut out two cloud shaps from the white construction paper. Next, cut slits into the ball where the clouds can stick in. Place ball on the 12" stick and then place in a pot (here we used wheatgrass but you could do a pot of flowers). As a final touch, we also added custom paper ribbons that said "Baby Girl, You are the Sunshine of My Life." This added our touch of pink we wanted.
Custom rounded pennant banners and streamers acted as a perfect backdrop to our table.
Remember, toppers don't have to be only for cupcakes. We used them on our sandwiches and also as napkin rings.
Loving all the patterns we created!
Instead of a guest book, we asked guests to write on a card their "Motherly Advise" for our new mom.
Another fun DIY project! We created a fun "sun" frame for photo ops with our Mom-to-Be. We found a large styrofoam frame that we simple wrapped with strips of yellow fabric. Easy to do for any party!
Okay, really fun to look at these photos again. Such a fun party.
