So I am finally sharing the Baby shower decorations.
I won't share the photos from the actual baby shower, I am sure there are those who wouldn't be happy about appearing on my blog! So I will just share the decorations and baking I did.
These were the decorations above the food table. (except the chandelier, that normally hangs there! :)
Cheap and easy decorations : paper pinwheels made from catalogs, tissue paper pompoms, paper chains, and doily garlands (the doily's I painted, waited to dry, glued and then folded in half over the string.)
Here is a close-up.
My friend liked them all so much that she took them ALL home to use as decoration in her baby's room-some she was going to hang above the cot. I was so touched to know all my hard work was so appreciated and will continue to bring joy!
Here is a picture of the food table. You can't see it clearly, but in front of the table I hung a material bunting which I also gave to her. The idea was to make a few things the guest of honor could take home after I had finished the party.
The cake. It had 4 layers. I am hopeless at ice-decorating and icing, but anyway...I tried!
I made a vanilla sponge cake, the top layer I colored green! (looked a bit strange!) Green icing and some little blue roses to go on top and finally a little bunting made from paper to top it off. (which i made too)
And a slice of cake....
My cupcakes. Light blue icing. And the little flags I made to go on top.
I wasn't completely satisfied with my poor attempt to ice them...but anyway!
I made some craft paper mustaches and lips just for fun! We had a lot of fun with these, everyone was quite game and I got some hilarious shots.
And that is it! I am giving another baby shower in January. So looking forward to that.
By the way, the Baby shower bingo game worked really well and everyone really enjoyed it! I printed out some sheets and gave everyone a pencil. Then I gave everyone a chance to fill out their sheets with gifts they thought she would get. Once everyone had done that, I called out random words from a list such as this one.
When the first person to have all 5 words in a row-horizontally, vertically or diagonally called out "Bingo!", the game was over and they won a prize.
Next time I will get everyone to cross off their sheet as she opens the gifts though.
Everybody liked their thank you gift and over all it was a success!
Thanks for stopping by!
