Baby Shower Decorations

Monday, March 3, 2014


My mom and I recently made decorations for my cousin's baby shower. Everything turned out so cute (if I do say so myself). We could not have done this project without the Silhouette Cameo.

This was the inspiration - an adorable party line that my aunt Patti found at the Dollar Tree. We used the color scheme and buggy throughout the decor.


We made a miniature version of these baby blocks. We found 8"x8" white boxes at Michael's, cut out shapes on the Cameo, and used washi tape for the borders. Adorable!!



We made a banner with his name (Kaycen Laine) on it. We put a star in the middle and two large buggies on either side.


Here's the finished centerpieces. They looked like presents springing open. We glued a ribbon around white 6" x 6" boxes from Michaels. We glued the buggies and paper medallions to popsicle sticks and wooden dowels for varying heights. Mom attached covered wire to the stars so they moved around and looked like they were bursting out of the box. We used styrofoam in the middle to hold everything together. A little bit of yellow straw covered up the styrofoam. Too cute!


We used all the leftover "trash" from the cameo cuts for table confetti:


I modified a buggy cut file and Mom added punched holes to mimic the napkin. We also made coordinating paper medallions. 


Mom and my aunt Patti also spent a lot of time making pages to go into a scrapbook album. Each guest filled out a letter to the baby. The letter included sentiments like "I hope you learn _______, I hope you aren't afraid _______, I hope you grow ________". I'm sure these pages will be fun to read! All the new mom has to do now is slip those pages into the 8" x 8" album.


We had a lot of fun working together on this project. I'm very lucky to have a crafty mom!! <3
