The entrance to the house: I have these urns, so I just tied the balloons to bricks, set them in there and stuffed tissue paper in them. Easy, and inexpensive.
The Door: I made a diaper wreath for the door. Super easy, white styrofoam wreath, curly ribbon, diapers, stuff. Again, easy and inexpensive.
The entryway: I also made a diaper cake. There are many versions and directions for the cake and the wreath on the net, just Google and decide what design you like. I wanted to keep mine simple:
The table: I set the 2 different baskets of favors, the cake, the cake plates and forks, and a couple of candleholders on the table in the formal dining, just to the left of the entry:
The cake: The theme was "Baby Clothesline" and I got a very talented local lady to make a beautiful cake...isn't it darling? She did such a good job!
The favors: I made these for both the women and men. I stitched up the hats along one side, did the top with a rubberband, turned it inside out and turned up the edge. The blankets are just squares of fleece pinned with baby colored pins. Add a strip of paper with the hand-drawn face and a tag and taadaa:
The ladies got bath fizzies, the men and kids got chocolate bars:
The gifts and the Guests of Honor: I was lucky enough to borrow an antique carriage from one of the aunts to use as a centerpiece in the formal living and to hold some gifts:
The Mom and Dad-to-Be: A couple of wnderful people and well deserving. We had about 50 people at the shower and I was so happy it came out so well, these two deserve it.
