We went to Lincoln Saturday for a baby shower for my daughter. It was at one of her friends' home. We had such a fun time.
She has the cutest baby bump.
My girls and me. :)
I just had to share this picture of my youngest two gals. My 5 y/o sitting in the middle (my niece is on the left) sat and ate two cupcakes while squinting at one foot and then the other, back and forth. She was in her own little world while the adults played a shower game. Then she came to me with her dress held up like an apron holding the cupcake crumbs. We just went outside to the porch to drop them. I actually took about 15 pictures of this scene. You've been spared.
I took some pictures of the diaper cake I made at home to show you. I made the three tiers using about 80 diapers. The Luvs diapers I bought were purple so that dictated the purple color theme. I used three embroidery hoops to tuck them into and hold them firm while I tied a string around them. Then I used wide white ribbon and narrow lace binding to wrap around each tier. I secured the ribbon with a low temp glue gun. It really worked well. I decided to offset the tiers to make room to set the "adornments".
I made the roses with long sleeved onesies and attached them with pearl headed corsage pins.
Replacing the shoe laces with ribbon really made these little shoes tie in with the color theme of the cake.
I tucked the original shoe laces in the toes of the shoes. The shoes are also attached with corsage pins.
I bought a bottle of baby bath because it was purple and tucked it in the top tier between the diapers. The white flower is on a baby headband that is just wrapped around the bottle of baby wash. Then two pacifiers are tied with ribbon and looped over the top of the bottle.
I used some ribbon flowers that I purchased just to add a little extra sparkle here and there on the cake.
I also thought you might like to see the corsage I made for her. I used pink Hersey kisses wrapped in tulle then attached the tulle to wire with floral tape.
I added sprigs of ribbon and sparkly ribbon roses.
Then also tied in some little plastic baby accents. We have a store in our little town that sells a lot of these party favor pieces so it was easy for me to come up with the supplies.
It's exciting times!
