Use coupons while at your local craft stores.
Have a plan. Idea. Run with it. Use a vision board/display of ideas and use those as inspiration pieces.
Try not to over do it-keep it fun but not overkill every detail. A little goes a long way!

The cake is so cute! And I really love the baby bump photos! Great choice for a theme, too! Whales are such beautiful and gentle creatures. I like them more than owls ;)
The juice bottles are bought from walmart. They are the Hawaiian punch mini juices. I replaced the plastic label “Hawaiian Punch” with a white label I stamped with a whale stamper from Hobby Lobby. I will admit I purchased the Krispy treats that were pre-made from walmart. They were pre-packaged rice krispy treats and I cut them in half, added a white stick and dipped them in white chocolate. I added food coloring *either pink or blue to the white chocolate when I was ready to dip them, added sprinkles……It was BY FAR the easiest treat I’ve ever made. Pretty mess-less too. We are waiting to find out:) Definitely a mystery baby:)
Your party looks adorable! Especially love the photo display. Where did you get the labels to put over the water bottles? Can you share your recipe for the frosted rice krispy pops? Are you waiting until the birth to find out boy or girl – or did the inside of the cake reveal the news? Congrats on your soon-to-be mommy status!
