If you are throwing a baby shower for a woman that is ALL girl – this idea is for you! Pretty, pink, and full of polka dots and flowers!
I love this invitation from Minted! It fits in perfectly with our girly pink theme….but would also be adorable for a cupcake theme shower. Instead of decorating with your typical baby shower items, such as baby shoes, bottles and pacifiers….I’m going to go a different route….a more sophisticated route, if you will! Take away a couple of “baby” details, and this party idea could be a beautiful brunch or birthday party!
I want flowers to be a part of all of my decorations. Centerpieces of pink and orange blooms, and even a floral topper on top of the diaper cake. (Ever wonder how to make a diaper cake?! Click here for detailed instructions). Beautiful flower wreaths on doors or hanging in front of windows. Wreaths can be a stunning addition to any room or party. Fresh flower versions are wonderful, but if you make the wreaths yourself using faux flowers, you can really customize the wreath to your specific theme (and re-use them!). Save-on-Crafts has a great selection of both Styrofoam and wire wreath forms to get you started….
When it comes to setting the table, use shades of pink to create this festive table. Finding the perfect pattern tablecloth is not always easy. So, pull out that sewing machine and make your own! Your local craft store is a great resource for patterned fabrics. Don’t have a sewing machine?! There is a no-sew option…use pinking shears to give the edge a decorative look. Pink cloth napkins, champagne glasses and a darling placecard…..it’s all you need to wow your guests.
Try something new for your dessert….these tiny square cakes are cute and preppy and so easy to do! Make individual cupcakes for your guests using a square muffin pan. If you want to make them taller, you can always use two layers of cake. Decorate them with a couple of different colors and patterns that coordinate with your theme. If you plan on serving a different dessert during the party, these square cupcakes could make a darling party favor too!
