not me sillies :)
The Real Housewife of Delaware is preggers. I'm hosting her baby shower next month, and I've been working dilligently to find just the right invites, and shower decor, and center piece and prizes. I just want everything to be perfect :)
This is the invitation that I selected:
The girl on the invitation reminds me so much of TRHoD. A huge thank you to mrs.mfc for helping me find (and select) the invitation!!! Next, I needed to come up with a centerpiece for the shower. I scanned quite a few blogs, and came up with the idea of a diaper cake. Some that I saw were amazing! Others, not so much. I was quite worried that mine would end up in the "not so much" category, but I'm actually quite pleased! AND....TRHoD's little one will already have 96 diapers :)
One of the diaper cakes I saw had a bottle of champagne as the center. This is to give the diapers something to lean against. The champagne is then to be used for a toast when the baby is born! I liked that idea, so you can see the tip of a champagne bottle coming out of the top of the 3rd layer of diapers!
(notice that sweet framed painting of a westie to the right of the cake? i need to figure out where to hang it!)
I've put some ribbon around it to dress it up, and I'm thinking that a pacifier bouquet of sorts on the top may be fun? I'll have to let you know what I end up doing. Any suggestions??
On my shopping trip to Michael's the other day I picked up these pretty prizes for TRHoD. A journal and a pen, so that I can take down the names of the guests at her shower and the presents that they have given. Aren't these perfect? AND FOR A DOLLAR EACH?!?! (clearly I still have not recovered from the bargains I found!)
Any suggestions or tips that you have from hosting baby showers would be most appreciated :)
