Bb is for Baby—A Baby Shower

One of Alex’s best friends and his wife (the best friend’s wife, not Alex’s) is having a baby sometime in the next month.  This past weekend, I helped throw her (the best friend’s wife) and baby Jameson a shower.


We hosted it at a local kitchenware shop.  It was a cute place and they did the food and clean up.  Our theme was Bb is for Baby because their last name starts with a B, it is a baby boy and she is an English teacher.  One of the other co-hostesses made this cute sign.






My contribution was mostly the decorations.  You already saw the diaper cake and cupcakes.  I also made three centerpieces.  I used one of the diaper cupcakes on each table and then a Dollar Tree vase (vase glued to candlestick) filled with black beans.  I made tissue puffs that are all over the blog world using yellow and black tissue paper (the colors for the day) and stuck them on sticks so they could go in the vases.  They were super cheap but also super cute. 






Like I said, the venue provided the food, but to make them it a little more personal, I made cupcake toppers for the mini-cupcakes.  I used cut the circles, B's and bees out with my Cricut.  I ran the B’s and bees though a Xyron sticker maker and stuck them to the circles.  Then I used round white mailing stickers to stick the circles to tooth picks.  They were so easy to make that even Alex could do it (I made him help).


We decorated bibs and onesies for little Baby J to wear once he gets here.  To make it a little less messy, we stuck with pain pens rather than puff paint.


We had super tasty cake pops too that two of the co-hostesses made.  They did red velvet and peanut butter/chocolate.  Super tasty and super cute.  It was a lot of fun throwing a part for the mom-to-be and Baby J.
