You may have guessed that I enjoy the versatility of scrapbook paper — I cut onesie shapes and strung them on twine for my garland above.
You can make really cute favor tags with the onesies (I hand painted the ones above) — get some tiny clothespins from the craft store, pin the favors onto the twine as garland, and guests can take one as they leave!
Cupcake stands can be elegant with things that are not cupcakes! For a cousin’s baby shower, I put the favors in a cupcake stand beside the cake, for a pretty display. For this “shower” I used cloth wipe cupcakes (tutorial coming Friday.) Two of my “cupcakes” are extra goodies – a small wet bag and a newborn cover.
Why not make the decorations the gift?
Hang a clothes line inside, and clip cloth diapers, onesies, washcloths and more for a cute look and gifts the mom-to-be can take home. Is the shower a surprise? Ask guests to come early and bring something small to clip on the line!
In the photo above, I’ve made cloth wipe cupcakes, which the new mom can take home. The “tablecloth” is a swaddling blanket for her (with a table runner over top) and I’ve filled the little wash tub with small goodies for her. Stack gifts in the back as guests arrive!
