To any male readers, this post is probably going to bore you to death...so I apologize now, if you even keep reading past this sentence. ;)
My bff is preggers. And can I just say that she is the cutest pregnant lady out there? I mean, seriously...who wouldn’t want to be this cute while carrying a child?
Anywho...while I was on my staycation a couple weeks ago, I had some serious business to take care of. My bff’s mom asked me to help out with her upcoming baby shower. I was in charge of making the favors and creating a diaper cake. I put together my sister's and my sister-in-law’s showers in the past, so I was so thrilled to be able to help out for another important person in my life.
The main colors were baby blue and navy blue. So I followed the same approach as I did in the past. I ordered some adorable, personalized stickers online...then I got busy sticking them to the bottom of some Hershey kisses. Once they were all done, I assembled some 2” x 2” craft boxes and put some baby blue shredded paper in the bottom. Each box was filled with 8 kisses and then tied with a pretty bow and thank you tag.
After all sixty something were done, it was time to start the cake. There is really no science behind how I make a diaper cake. I pretty much just go to Babies R Us and pick out tons of stuff that fits the color scheme of the shower. Then I use some ribbon to accent the accessories and play around until I like the look of things. Finally, I wrap the cardboard bottom of the cake in wrapping paper so it’s prettier than some plain old cardboard. And voila! I’m done!
The baby shower was a couple weekends and we couldn’t have had a prettier day for it. Everything was perfect, and both bff and her mom seemed to be very happy with everything. Can’t ask for more than that! :)
