This is a baby shower I decorated (with the help of many volunteers) for some close friends. We were given the materials and vision and went right to work. We used pinks, greens, and polka dots to give a contemporary look. Instead of having a cake table we put cupcakes on each table in cupcake stands and glass pedestals. We attached balloon bouquets to the stands to create an elegant center piece. Above every other table hung a pom pom arrangement from wiring set up across the room (gym). At each place setting there was a Onesie place card. The inside of the place card was formatted to say: "Advice for the Mother-to-Be". Underneath the Onesie place card sat a white favor box filled with mint candies. We tied a green or a pink ribbon around each box and added a baby feet charm for extra cuteness and detail.
Contemporary Baby Shower using pinks, greens, and white.
I bought clip art from this vendor to create the onesie place cards. http://www.etsy.com/shop/LollipopInk
We ordered the cupcakes from www.publix.com
The napkins, plastic ware, pom poms, and balloons were from www.partycity.com
We borrowed the lanterns from a friend who recently got married. She had so many of them. That was such a blessing:)
The table cloths were from http://www.dollartree.com/home.jsp
Miscellaneous supplies were bought from www.michaels.com and www.joann.com
Onesie Place Setting and Pom Pom Hanging Arrangement
Make sure you prepare the pom poms early as they take the longest to assemble. Also, to cut on cost you can make them yourself very easily:)
