Baby Shower Inspiration

Here are some of the ideas I'm working on for the baby shower I'm decorating.  I found all the photos on Pinterest.  Click each photo for the source.

Really large confetti
Polka-dot garland
Ribbon flags.  I'm not sure yet how or where I would use these.
Cloud mobile.  I may combine this with some origami frogs and driftwood for some kind of hanging centrepieces.
Or this piñata would be fun!  But I wouldn't make a piñata.  I think hot glue on a paper lantern shade would work.  It kind of looks scaly.  Like a frog.  No, wait...frogs don't have scales!  My reptile-breeding sister would be ashamed of me!  Ok so it looks reptilian.
So those are some of the ideas I'm working on.  A friend is coming over in the morning to help me figure out what we're going to do.  I went to two different stores tonight to find two colours of plain, untextured, unmetallic card stock.  With no luck.  I did find some textured olive green that I can use for food lables, but nothing to use for the paper circle garlands.  The only plain olive I could find was too yellow, and the only plain baby blue I could find was too purple.  I have one week to get this all together.

  1. How about using the ribbon flags on drinking straws for people to use?
