I had a baby shower for a friend before I could take my Christmas tree down. I just took off the decorations and replaced them with ribbons, booties, bottles, socks, pacifiers, ect. Oh and a big fluffy bow, in baby colors draped from the top down the sides. Also, paint clothes pins or use diaper pins and the guests can pin on money.
It was such a good idea and was raved over. (image source: Stylish Eve) - I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the tree I made, so I found one similar to show you.
I was hosting a baby shower and I decided to make a decorative twist to the typical clothesline:
Instead of hanging baby clothes on a clothesline, I cut out large letters spelling out the baby's name and using miniature clothespins, I clipped them to a ribbon strung up between 2 doves cut out from card stock / scrapbook paper and stapled to the wall. Very unexpected!
Comments for A new twist on baby shower decorations
Below is a great video that I found on You Tube for "how to make a diaper wreath."
It is similar to a baby shower diaper cake - but in the shape of a wreath instead of a diaper!
The instructions are detailed and I think I would be able to make this ~ I love the idea that everything on the diaper wreath is able to be used by the mom and baby! So it really makes the perfect gift! ..and it is so cute!
Ingredients: baby powder scented oil candle wax pink or blue food wax coloring wicks empty baby food jars
In an old pan melt wax add scent to your liking and coloring to your liking as well when ready insert wick in the middle then spoon the wax into the jar.
Let cool. Cut wick to good length after completely cool put lid back on you can add a circle sticker cut to fit the top or glue some of the baby theme fabric on top etc. this was a big hit and then each guest have something they can use to remember the shower by.
I made mint books using and excel and card stock. The card stock is thick enough to support the weight of the mint and hold the bend. I used clip art for the picture on the front and typed a little thank you message on the bac, The top has the date of the shower and the bottom flap has the baby's name on it. On the inside is a individually wrapped livesaver mint secured with a staple. You could use stick dots but I've found that if you use the staple at the bottom it helps hold the flap secure. I prefer the sweet mint flavor because it tastes good and smells good too.You could use any flavor or color you want to coordinate with your theme.
To hold the mint books I founds some quart sized mason jars and painted polka dots on them using the shower theme colors. Then i decorated with curling ribbon. The paint comes off of the glass fairly easily to mistakes can be corrected and the jars can be re-used.
ball-point pens (I usually get the cheap bic ones)
green florist tape
fake flowers (whatever kind you want, cut the stems of the flower to where each flower is single. may leave the leaves if you choose
put the flower on the back of the pen stem going down pen than take the tape and start taping down the pen until u reach the bottom to write with and you're done and your guest can use these to play the games plus they are a great party favor to take home u can even hold them in a lil flower pot until time to hand out or if u have extras they still look cute :)

fish and soap washcloth
you only need one washcloth 1 moving eye a piece of brown yarn different colors of yarn any kind of soap
You have to put the soap inside the washcloth then wrap it nicely and put 1 colored yarn in the wash cloth tie it and ribbon it.
Put 1 moving eye so it will look like the eyes of a fish by using a glue gun then for the finished touch cut a piece of brown yarn just to put on the mouth.presto you have a great souvenir for spa party of your own!
