Baby Shower Decorations

I've been happily anticipating this post for quite a few months... ever since learning that a couple I know are expecting a baby girl on Valentine's Day. How perfect is that?! A shower for them and little Miss Emersyn-to-be, a.k.a. Emmy, was held recently, and of course I wanted to get involved with paper-y goodness when it came to the decorations. Here's a close up of one of the bunting letters to get things started...

Bunting - close up

Cecelia Louie, whose name might be familiar to you via her fab paper quilling, is also a die cut designer. I showed her a photo on Kiss and Punch of a bunting I liked... Cecelia ran with the idea, creating this beautiful garland. I'm so glad it will live on as decor in the baby's nursery too.

And ever since I first laid eyes on her adorable baby animal die cut favor boxes, I knew they would be perfect for the shower too. Bright and fruity had been selected as the color theme, so Cecelia rounded up cardstock shades in raspberry, lemon, and lime. Look how cute the boxes are all lined up, awaiting the guests. Animals on parade... just as sweet as the treats inside!

While we're talking babies and nurseries, Anais of Etsy shop Galerie Anais in France creates paper collages that feature all sorts of adorable and on-trend images such as birds, owls, and curly branched trees. She then turns the collages into paper or canvas prints. I had given a pair to the parents-to-be for Christmas that are already hanging in Emmy's room.

Here are a couple more party pics because we all like to peek at buffet tables, right? Guess how many {paper} diapers were in the centerpiece...

The answer is 73. Newborn-size diapers are so very tiny - I'd forgotten!

I LOVE it!! The garland is just beautiful and those animal boxes are the cutest! I haven't had dinner yet and I want to crawl through the screen and pig out!

You're so right about the tiny newborn diapers. Not long ago I packed up a lot of Lachlan's newborn size stuff and almost cried at how tiny they are (and how little he used to be)!! :)
