baby boy shower decoration ideas


the last two days i've been editing photos i took at a baby boy shower last weekend, so i thought i'd share some impressions of the shower with you. since to me that's the fun part, i got somewhat involved with coming up with decoration ideas and helped my friends who were actually throwing the party to find and create the party favors.

the first idea, the paper tissue pom-poms, were something i had previously seen at a craft store and then looked for it on pinterest so i could pin it to one of my boards and thereby remember this idea.




as party favors my friend came up with the idea of baking cookies, putting them in embellished cd sleeves (blue feet and hands stamps), and attaching a beaded wire "j" (for jonathan, the baby's name) with ribbons in the party colors which were dark and light blue, teal, green, white.

the idea of making the j's out of wire and beads came from her having seem some of my wire art. it was quite a task to make 120 of these favors, but we made it just in time!



these teal glass bottles were a beautiful edition to the buffet. the selection of fresh fruit and other food was absolutely delicious. by the way, the blue and white pom-poms were hanging above the buffet, it looked wonderful!

Very clever -- the CD cases with cookies and favors!

Yes, indeed, the cookies in cd-sleeves are such a great idea. Yet, the 120 "Js" must have worn you out, so sorry for you. Hope, your self-sacrificing spirit has been appreciated.
