Spring Baby Shower + Free Printables

Spring-Baby-Shower

Last weekend I threw a baby shower for my friend, Stephany, who’s having her first baby! I’ve had so much the last couple of weeks channeling my girly side and planning this baby shower, since most of the stuff I do is for my boys. We had fun eating, smelling “poopy” diapers, tasting baby food, avoiding the word “baby” and seeing how much the daddy-to-be knew about babies. It was the perfect way to get the mommy-to-be excited about her baby!

Today, I’m also sharing the printables I used for this party and hope that it will help you plan your next baby shower. If you haven’t played any of these games, you should definitely consider them at the next shower you host!

For this game, I recorded the Daddy-to-be’s answers and showed the video at the baby shower. (I have to give credit to my MIL for this idea).

It was so much fun, and I’m so excited for Stephany and Josh!

Tissue Paper Cupcake Wrap

Cupcake Tissue Paper 6

I was up late trying to quickly finish cupcakes for my friend’s Mint, Pink & Gold Baby Shower earlier this week. I had just designed and printed out cupcake wrappers and started to cut out the first wrap. I taped the wrap onto the cupcake and thought that it was going to take way too much time for me to finish the rest of them. I looked over at my dining room table and saw that I still had some of the gold polka dotted tissue paper laying there. Whether or not this idea is completely original, I had to try it out. I cut down the tissue paper to fit the cupcake, stuck it into a plastic cup and it looked cute and most importantly, it was going to save me lots of time!

Here’s how I did it:

I cut down my tissue paper to a 5×5 square (sizes will vary by cupcake).

Cupcake Tissue Paper

Gather the sides of the tissue paper and wrap it around the cupcake.

Cupcake Tissue Paper 2

Stick your cupcake and tissue paper wrap into the cup.

Cupcake Tissue paper 3

Ice your cupcake, making sure the icing doesn’t touch the tissue paper.

Cupcake Tissue Paper 4

Last, but not least, insert the cupcake into a candy bag and wrap it with ribbon or baker’s twine and it’s ready to be used at your next party! These were super easy and such a great time saver! Don’t be surprised if you see me using these more than once!

Mint, Pink & Gold Baby Shower + Printables

Baby-Shower-Mint-Pink-and-GoldOur good friend Rachelle (who is also an amazing photographer) is having a baby in less than 3 weeks and we wanted to throw a baby shower for her. We tried to keep it simple, and had a pancake bar that included a super delicious homemade buttermilk and strawberry syrup. Everything was delicious, and we had lots of fun celebrating Rachelle and her baby! We can’t wait to meet her little girl soon!!!

Photo Credit goes to Rachelle Packard. (I must make a side note that I did the editing on the photos, as they are nowhere close to how good Rachelle’s photography and editing skills are).

When it came to designing printables, I followed these color palettes.

Green & Blue Baby Shower + Printables

A few years ago,  I decided to throw one of my good friends a baby shower. She had done so much for me within the last year, I just had to! She now has 3 adorable little boys and I am missing her terribly. I’m going back to memory lane with this one and adding a few more touches I didn’t have time to make for the party.

I love how this invitation turned out. I printed out a onesie template on the back of scrapbook paper and cut them out one by one (very tedious work people). Strung them on Hemp, and hole punched each onesie and two holes in the invitation. A lot of work, but totally worth it.
Now it’s your turn! You can print one that’s already done, or pick your favorite scrapbook paper to give it an extra special look.
