Diaper Cakes!

Hi Everyone!  Hope your weekend is going great!

***If you are here for the A Day for Daisies Blog Hop, please scroll down :)  It goes through February 24th so you have time to hop at your leisure. ***

I have a couple of baby shower diaper cakes to share with you today.  February 19th ended up being a popular date for baby showers for me and it worked out pretty cool - one for a girl and one for a boy!

Here is the first:  This one has over 150 diapers and I wrapped the layers with items that matched the nursery theme (Babies R Us Jacana by Cocalo) and other assorted baby items with matching colors! I used my Cricut Create a Critter cartridge to make the animals that decorate the three layers.

The second cake is for the Dr. Seuss themed  baby shower I did the invitations for (I posted them a few weeks ago!)  The cake is bigger than my picture box so sorry about the photo.  The mommy-to-be requested guests to bring a book for the baby's library so I really caught a break when I found the cute tiny Dr. Seuss books at Marshals! The other Dr. Seuss items came from Michael's - again, another break for me!  This cake has over 120 diapers.
These are always so much fun to make and they're a great way to add to your party decor but in a useful way!  I love things that are dual-purposed like that :).   When I'm hosting a baby shower, a diaper cake is always part of the party decor and when I make one for someone to give as a gift,  I am over-the-moon when I hear it was also used as a centerpiece!

I wanted to post a couple more I have made in the past.  Please excuse the lousy pictures; they were taken before I ever imagined having my own blog ;)  and before I had a better camera and light box.



These two were a couple of my favorites.  The teddy bears I used for the topper were ones that had information included with them for registering the baby's name on a star.  I just love that idea!

Well, I'm off now to work on some invitations for a 2nd birthday :)  Hope your weekend is wonderful!
