Baby Shower Ideas – A Wandaful Thing

A close family friend recently gave birth to a baby girl.  Instead of having a baby shower before the baby arrived, it was decided to have a “meet Trinity” party after the birth.  I was honored when I was asked to contribute some of my creativity to the party and even more excited when I was told the colors were pink and white.

I decided to incorporate some food into the decorations.  The crepe paper sucker flowers made a lovely contribution to the tabletop and were easily made using crepe paper, scissors and tape (suckers too of course). I made a baker’s dozen over the course of a few evenings . I made two different types, one I refer to as the carnation(pink) and the other a daisy (white).  If anyone is interested in how any of my creations were made, I will post tutorials for you.

These marshmallows ballerinas were also quite popular, I think most people took them home for their children – I love marshmallows and I am a kid at heart – win win lol

This baby girl is definitely a little princess, I made (from scratch) vanilla cupcakes but they needed toppers.

I wanted a tiara or a crown for a topper.  I originally was going to buy the toppers but couldn’t find exactly what I wanted.  I decided to make a version, using my Cricut, which allowed me to personalize them. I think they are pretty cute…

Who doesn’t love shortbread cookies or Rice Krispie squares? The shortbread cookies were decorated with the same icing as the cupcakes and the Rice Krispie squares were displayed on a vintage milk glass cake stand decorated with polka dot tulle.

They say red is the color of love but on this day it was definitely PINK 😉 

Sugar and Spice and everything nice, that’s what baby girls are made of
