Real Baby Shower: A Colorful Dinner Party


Friday, February 25, 2011


WOW!!! What great DIY ideas from Breanna of the Bayou Moon -- mismatching mini cake stands (click here for a tutorial), a table runner made from curtains found from a close-out sale, vibrant tubs filled to the rim with various paper flowers, the adorable chair garland, and fabric flower pony tail holders doubling as napkin rings and favors. AND... check out the handmade invitations. You can tell this baby shower was made with 100% love! Oh, and by the way, the tutorial for the paper flowers is coming soon. Get excited!

From Breanna... This is the most rewarding shower/party that I have ever planned! Not only did I think that it was sooo cute, but every idea that I had anticipated using, was! I have to admit that usually I run out of time and something is sacrificed, but not this time! I definitely can't take all the credit for the outcome...we only had about 45 minutes to set up and I had LOTS of helping hands!! THANK YOU!!

I LOVED seeing all the adorable mini cake stands! {is is bad that i made my sister help make them?} I loved them all. It was impossible to choose a favorite! Each had a mini pound cake topped with powdered sugar and a strawberry. There were 3 different shapes of cakes.

Along with the cake stand, each place setting had a menu card that resembled the invite. Behind the trim was a menu with the 3 entree choices and a game card. The favors were fabric flower ponytail holders, which also served as the napkin ring.

The table runner was made from curtain panels that I found at a close-out store. The digging definitely paid-off the day that I found them--the contrast really made the cake stands pop!

Along with the cake stands, there were big colorful jars full of paper flowers!

And to add some fun to the gift table...a few white ruffles :)

I definitely wanted Heather's chair to have something cute on it, but could not decided what. Then I saw this idea in the new Martha Wedding magazine the night before. It was perfect!

Thanks to everyone for all of the help!! It was a lovely shower, and fun was had by all!

I love this shower from start to finish. I was wondering if you might have instructions on how to make the fabric menu card? I'd love to re-create them if I can.
