Baby Shower Idea: Baby Blocks Inspiration Board

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Another fabulous inspiration board from The Finishing Touch! Baby blocks is an easy theme that can be brought into your decor, cake, invitations and favors. Check out these past posts for additional ideas -- Blue Baby Blocks and Pink Baby Blocks. Simply change the color palette for a girl, boy or gender neutral baby shower. 

From the Girls at The Finishing Touch... There are so many fun and creative things to do with block letters. Enjoy!!

{1} Decorate in pastel blue, pink, green and yellow with accents of cream and white for a fresh look. {2} Decorate the room with fun block lanterns. {3} Use vintage toy blocks to create fun first words around the room.  {4} Small centerpieces can be created with cube glass vases filled with lemons or limes for a spring touch. {5} You could also use baby block banks for centerpieces with some florals.
{6} Spell the name of the new baby (if known) in alpha blocks or in a hanging banner that is in the shape of blocks.

{1} Have a dessert station with cookies and cupcakes decorated with blocks and individual mini block cakes in flavors of red velvet, butter cream and chocolate. {2} Have mini sandwiches and fruits and cheese cut into cubes.

{1} Favors can be chocolate blocks, spread knives with blocks on handle, block mint containers and even picture frames in the shape of a block. {2} Use the names of parents and the new baby in blocks on the invitation. {3} Have guests use real blocks for an "unscramble the word" game.
