Create an easy backdrop by hanging fabric directly from the wall, or using hot glue to attach it to large foam boards as I did here. You can make the It’s a Boy Banner using the printable banner that comes in the package. I cut the pieces out with a circle cutter and then attached to burlap circles. To create the burlap circles you can cut strips of burlap and fan them together in a circle hot gluing down the pleats on a cardboard circle as you fan. You can cut a table runner in half and use coming down instead of across the center of a table. On the Safari Baby Shower invitation the guest were asked to please bring a book to help start Jagger’s new library. I love the idea of bringing a book instead of a card.
Start your investigation with pictures of baby shower cakes. This is a sure way to get excited about having a party and designing a super dessert. Pictures show different icing textures, decoration styles, color schemes, wordings, cake toppers, and images used on baby shower cakes. Where can pictures be found? Look for recent cake books, magazines, and photo galleries on the internet. Visit cake shops, to browse through catalogues and look at fresh baked cakes on display.
Just as a birthday party has popular symbols, such as balloons and candles, a baby shower cake often features one or more of the following decorations:
~Baby clothing, such as a jumper or booties;
~Toys, such as blocks, teddy bears, and rattles;
~Accessories, such as pacifier, baby bottle, or carriage;
~Flowers, especially spring flowers and buds;
~Angels and storks;
~Cute baby animals, such as rabbits, ducks, lady bugs, elephants, penguins, and butterflies;
~Infant dolls; and
Go for pastel colors or select bold fun colors. There are no fixed rules, unless your guests of honor expect certain traditions to be followed. Some people prefer pink, baby blue, or yellow--although these colors are not required.
