Next month is coming up fast and by the time I get back from vacation, my next baby shower will be only a few weeks away. We finally decided on a restaurant to hold the shower and I’ve been trying to think up ways to turn a basic restaurant table and surroundings into a festive baby shower. As any of you party me perfect followers will know, I’ve been a bit obsessed with diaper cakes lately. Well, the two thoughts combined and I’ve come up with the perfect centerpiece for the baby shower….

I took an 8″ diaper cake, placed a 4″ high vase in the center, filled the vase with green and white flowers……and voila….the perfect baby shower centerpiece! In my head I saw gerber daisies, but there were none at the store so I used this arrangement for now. As you can see, I wrapped the diaper cake with green monkey ribbon backed with aqua colored ribbon. I then added a medallion (which I used my new cricut to make!) with the monogram of  the soon to arrive baby.There are two medallions, one on each side, so it will look good no matter which side of the table you’re sitting on.

I mocked up the table setting below, which includes one of my cupcake cuties (diaper cupcakes) at each place setting.  The cupcake cuties double as favors (along with an edible goodie from All Jarred Up!) The actual shower will have about 15 people, but I used my kitchen table to get an idea of how the setting will look.

I absolutely love this centerpiece and setting. I can’t wait to see it at the shower!
