We ended our current small group with a baby shower celebration for one of the couples. Decorations started at the front door with a chalkboard sign. I just free-handed the greeting and the buck head silhouette.
In the living room, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut paper chevron arrows that I sewed into a garland. The colors were inspired by fabric from the baby’s nursery.
I reused a mustache game I had made for a previous “Little Man” shower. Everyone guessed the celebrity who’s mustache appears on each picture. There were 12 photos and the winner went home with a Starbucks gift card.
In the dining room, we hung baby clothes and burp cloths from a clothesline above the drink table. Per the mother-to-be’s request, we used the gifts as decor so that she didn’t have to open gifts in front of everyone. I stacked paper accordion balls under the table to add some color. I also picked up one large gift bag that all the gifts went into at the end of the night.
The hydrangeas came out of my own garden! They seem very happy this year.
This super-cute clothesline was made from the popular baby toy Lots of Links by Bright Starts and some fun boyish onesies.
For the food table centerpiece, I made a diaper cake with a plush deer topper in honor of the father-to-be. I placed it on a slab of birch and used a burlap table runner for a rustic feel.
Each group member brought a dish. We had veggies with hummus, buffalo chicken dip, baked brie cups, and baby-shower-themed cupcakes.
The night was a fun way to close out two years of doing life together. Now, to divide and multiply!
