Baby Shower Decorations

Hello, long time no see! Again, I have fallen off the blog world for a while. But I finally have some things I can share. For the past 2 months I have been working on invites and decorations for my sister-in-law's baby shower. Now it didn't take me 2 full months to do these baby shower things. It was more like, I had to finish everything at the last minute, haha!! I have just been so tired when I get home from work that I was putting things off and off until I could no longer do that. But now that the shower has passed, I can finally share what I've been working on. Even though, it took me while to get my act together and get these things done, I really enjoyed making everything and I'm glad that everything turned out well. The theme of the shower was a bunny/hot air balloon theme. It actually all started with a hot air balloon diaper cake that I saw that I really wanted to do for the shower. Then we added bunnies since the mother-to-be really liked the velveteen rabbit. So we will start off with the invitations.

I used MDS for the invitations. I LOVE using MDS for invitations! I used the Up, Up and Away digital download for the balloon as well as the Baby We've Grown download for the bunny. Colors used were Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana. Once I printed out the invites, I colored the bunny in with blender pens and Smokey Slate ink. I then mounted it to Coastal Cabana paper and added Calypso Coral baker's twine.

Next up is the hot air balloon diaper cake. There aren't too many Stampin Up products on this but where I could use them I did.

I followed the instructions from here on how to put this together.
For the balloon, I added Coastal Cabana ruffled ribbon with Calypso Coral twine and a couple of hearts punched out of the vanilla coaster board. You can see a close up of the balloon in the last picture. For the basket part I tied Calypso Coral Chevron ribbon. I think this ribbon is my favorite of all time! I love this stuff! I think I should have added some more ruffled ribbon to the balloon but over all, I love how cute this turned out!

I will come back tomorrow with the card, diaper bouquets and banners that I did.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. what a super neat idea and your card is perfect.

  2. Awesome baby shower decorations. It reminds me of my friend’s baby shower at one of local LA venues. It was really amazing. The decorations were best things there. Loved attending that show. Looking forward for more events like this.
