My friend had a baby girl a few months ago and I hosted her baby shower. I made everything so I thought I’d share the craftiness with you all. 🙂 Kerin is obsessed with rubber duckies so I chose a Rubber Ducky theme… The colors were pink and yellow with a little bit of blue. Part of her gift, I made her a wreath to hang in Emma’s room: I bought a foam wreath and wrapped it in yarn: Then I got a bunch of felt and made a ton of different shaped flowers: I hot glued them onto the wreath and bought pretty sparkly letters to spell out “Emma” and glued them on as well. The finished product: For favors for the guests I made cake pops (oreo cookie and cream cheese of course!) I made homemade tags with a rubber ducky punch and wrote “thank you for coming!” and I tied them on to the cake pop: My supplies: I also made a cake! I found inspiration on Pinterest… I used pink food coloring to make the inside batter pink (since she was having a girl) and decorated the outside with frosting tinted with blue food coloring (water), marshmallows (bubbles) and rubber duckies. Check out this masterpiece. I was very proud since I don’t make cakes very often at all! The inside: I made this adorable centerpiece with glass fish bowls, water and blue food coloring and a few rubber ducks. I made Ducky Punch… this was my favorite part of it all. It was delicious and adorable and I will use this punch recipe for every party from now until eternity. I got the idea from this site: http://tidymom.net/2011/ducky-baby-shower-punch/.
OMG I love it. 🙂 A few other details I pulled together: Pink paper straws in a mason jar with a duck tag and ribbon:
Pink and yellow plates, silverware and napkins:
I found this blue sand bucket and scoop for ice!
Another shameless shot of the punch:
The entry table:
I found this autograph duck for guests to sign and I got Kerin Thank you notes and envelopes for guests to write their addresses on. (Easier for Kerin to send thank you notes!) Of course I punched out about a hundred yellow ducks to sprinkle everywhere. 🙂
Our main game was Baby Jeopardy… I made the game board and found the fun facts online. We had 4 categories: In the Belly – trivia about babies and mommas before they are born. Giving Birth – fun and somewhat scary trivia about labor! hehe. I’m evil. Newborns – trivia about brand new bebes. And Mommy – To – Be – random trivia about the mom of the hour – Kerin!!
Guest’s favors- Delicious cake pops!
It was fun to plan her shower- there are so many things that go into planning a shower – I had no idea. But I was able to let my crafty side go wild and have a great time! 🙂
Hope you enjoy the pics!
