Baby Shower Decorations

Posted on 197 views
I am one of those people that simply loves to craft and when my i was planning my sister’s baby shower, i felt i had hit the jackpot as i could now bring up all my crafting tools and materials to create all the decorations, gifts, thank you cards, etc.It was the mother lode for me. I spent hours researching on themes, colours and materials. In the end, we decided on the “floral” theme.I hope you enjoy this article and it inspires you to create your own party decorations for your next theme party.

After looking at the venue which was a Japanese restaurant, we decided to have centerpieces for each table, a baby shower banner and loads of colourful tissue paper pom poms all over the venue.

Baby Banner

I made this baby banner using my Silhouette Die-cutting machine. I got the template from google and used my trace tool to create a file for cutting.I decided to offset the body of the baby dress, so i used cardstock as the base and Designer paper on the top.

Finished it off with alphabets i cut with the Silhouette. Then i used a ribbon to join them all together.The reason we decided not to write my sister’s name on the banner is because we wanted to use this banner over and over again. And we have! This has gone around a number of times in our friends’ circle.

Baby Shower Centerpieces

Here we used diapers to create a base and then added tissue paper flowers and baby cut-outs i cut from my Silhouette. On the next one we used a flower pot from Ikea. As you can see they turned out beautiful.

Baby Shower Table Decorations

Cookie covers  : We used a baby onesie die cut and inserted a chocolate chip cookie into each one. For a girl we cut out a baby dress and did the same. These looked very cute on the table and added a colourful and baby look on the table.

Wine glass stem rings : We printed out my sisters name on the computer and used the circle and scallop punch to create these.

Napkin rings : We printed out baby shapes from the computer and usind a scallop and circle punch offset the two together to create these lovely napkin rings.

Baby bootie chocolate holders :
For this we used a very clever technique. I saw it on youtube. Take a paper glass(I used pink and blue which i bought from the party store), Cut off half from the top. Cut 2 slits on the front of the glass and make 2 hole punches on either side. Then take a ribbon and with a criss-cross pattern take them through the punched holes and tie a bow. They now looked like baby booties. We used hershey chocolates, we tied them in a net with a bow and put them inside the booty. These were a big hit and the ladies took them home for their children.

So we had additional gifts like cookies dressed up in baby dresses and hershey chocolate booties for the ladies’ to take home.

Party Bags

We just used colourful bags and added a thank you gift tag on them. We used double sided foam tape to stick the die-cuts of a baby bib and baby bottles on these lovely tags. We gave everyone perfumes and we simply wrapped them in tissue paper. As you can see the efect was really good in the end.
