Well, I am FINALLY back and posting again, and to kick it off I am so pleased to bring you this SEW sweet baby shower! You may have seen it featured to day on Amy Atlas Blog, such an honor! Here are some more sweet pics and details for your enjoyment...
The cake table
I was able to get large wood spools from an electrical supply warehouse to use as the tables, I think they were a great touch.
Fabric backdrop was created with strips of various fabric hanging from a line, so simple and adorable
2 Tier quilted pattern cake with a large pink bow
Fondant Button cupcakes on mini cupcake pedestals
Sugar button cookies tied with ribbons
Yarn wrapped letters to spell the baby's name, accented with crocheted flowers, buttons, and bows. They were perfect for the decor and double as a gift for the mommy too.
Vintage sugar cookie button cards that I just couldn't pass up!
For additional decorations, we had some buttons strung up for garland, and buttons and little wooden spools all over tables and such as well.
We had an activity for all the ladies to do. They got to make a bow for the new baby. I purchased a vintage sewing machine and table to set up the display on from my local classifieds, it was in beautiful condition.
Various sizes of embroidery hoops with bright patterns of fabric served as the background, and the table was accented with flowers, balls of yarn, measuring tape, fabric squares, wooden spools, an adorable pin cushion, and apothecary jars filled with buttons and spools of thread.
We had all kinds of things to make bows with: felt flowers and circles, buttons, ribbons, and fabric flowers.
'Handmade by' cards to clip the bow on and right your name so the mommy knew who they were from
Here are some of the lovely bows that were made
I have a theory about baby shower favors, they either have to edible or useful, anything other than that will probably get thrown out over time. So for party favors I did both :)
We gave out Mini Sewing Kits
and individually wrapped chocolate button lollipops
Thank you so much stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the pics, I know I had a blast designing and decorating for this shower. Hope you all have a SEW sweet day!
