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?

  2. Looks like you're off to a good start. That's the amazing thing about Pinterst - it's full of terrific inspiration.

  3. i just showed my pinterest boards to my husband--he didn't get it--i tried explaining the concept of virtual bulletin boards--he doesn't get "virtual"--lol--anyway, i LOVE the flag ribbons on the glasses--simple but very stylish--

  4. Pinterest has some great ideas - I'm doing a baby shower for my daughter and have lots of ideas on my boards if you would like to see what we are doing (I'm using a "flower" theme. Will be doing a post on my blog after the shower (in April). Good luck with your party!
