All Star Baby Shower

Hello All!

My niece, Lauren, commissioned me to make a few things for a baby shower she is hosting for a friend.  The couple is expecting a boy--his name will be Jackson!--and the theme for the shower is sports.  Here's what I came up with for the invitations:

The image is a Whippersnapper rubber stamp called "Bella."  I masked off the bow and gave this little guy a ball cap.  He is colored with copics and then fussy-cut.  I created the tiny pacifier by using a circle brad and clear "C" clip (they are used to create rubber band bracelets).  I bought the printed paper, "Little All Star," digital paper pack is Paper Tree House Studio (Etsy).  The card is Bazzill cardstock (starmist).  The pacifier is my favorite thing!

I made 35 of them.  Here are the other decorations I made:

Concession Banner, "Jax" Banner, scoreboard, buffet cards, bookmarks (favors), pennants (to use in centerpieces), and the diaper cake.  The diaper cake holds over 100 diapers, a hooded terry towel, three receiving blankets, two onesies, a travel size baby lotion, wash, powder, and shampoo, two washcloths and two pacifiers.  I am so excited about the topper on this diaper cake!  It's lighted!!

I picked up a lighted floral branch from Michaels (about $6 with a 40% coupon) and hot glued laminated stars on each bulb.  The stars were cut, using Spellbinders stars, from the same cardstock as the invitations.   The star bookmarks were made the same way:

The personalized scoreboard was cut using the Sports Mania Cricut cartridge.

See the cute star-shaped glass dish?  I found 8 of them at the thrift store for $1.25 each!  They will be used on each guest table.

The buffet cards are football jerseys (Sports Mania Cricut cartridge).  Each jersey is mounted on a wooden clothespin and have a chalkboard label.  I didn't put the labels on them because it's easier to write on the label first and then just stick it in place!

The concession banner will hang above the food table.  

This banner is a surprise for the Mommy-to-be as it is in the nickname she's come to lovingly call the precious bundle!

I hope the shower is a huge success!

Have a great week :)

  1. Absolutely amazing! Baby showers are my all-time favorite, and I would have loved to be a part of this all-star shower. I would also be hosting baby shower for my best friend and will be booking one of best New York event venues. I will make DIY party décor for this.
