Description

Our Baby Shower held on 9.25.10 for our first baby. The theme was based off the Dr. Seuss book, "Oh Baby, All the Places You Will Go!" In traditional Filipino fashion (where everyone's invited!), we had to accommodate an 100+ guest count of family & friends.

Decorating Style

Fun and fresh!

Project Details

Paper Pom Poms are expensive to buy, but easy and cheap to make with any youtube tutorial. We also incorporated pastels, mainly pink, lavendar, and yellow.

Some decor came from a dear friend who's sister also happens to run a business called "Creations By Mom". http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Creations-by-Mom/107425119301460?ref=ts

One of my best friends made the Dr. Seuss centerpieces all on her own creativity with local finds from Target and Michaels.

Floral centerpieces were made by my husband and I (scroll down for more info)

We used caramel apples and called them "Yertle's Caramel Turtles" for Party favors. They were a steal from http://www.daffyapple.com/

Some of the candy for the dessert bar was purchased was from http://candywarehouse.com/

Cupcakes/Cakes were made from a local baker, Tricia Faye, who works from her home (and lives really close to the shower location): http://www.cakesbytriciafaye.net

Favorite Items

The Dr. Seuss dessert bar. It also happened to by my husband's 30th birthday so to incorporate a piece of his birthday celebration, the main menu consisted of BBQ. The dessert table however, stay in sync with the Dr. Seuss concept.

Advice

Try to save where you can. For example, Paper Pom Poms are expensive to buy, but easy and cheap to make with any youtube tutorial. I actually made mine while sitting in front of a TV!

Also we made our floral arrangements by buying flowers and vases from the Flower District in Los Angeles, CA. Therefore for 10 floral centerpieces, we spent roughly $50 TOTAL.

    Hi Kristine:  Maganda ang ginawa mo at mukhang masaya ang party mo.  Kabayan :)  Filipinos really do make a point of throwing lavish parties, but it was fun wasn’t it?  I went to your blog and was pretty amazed by all the diapers you got :)

    Not really familiar with Dr. Seuss, but this particular book you mentioned seems really appropriate and relevant!
