Diaper Cake


Now that I finally have some extra time on my hands I’ve spent some time up dating the Party Me Perfect facebook Page www.facebook.com/partymeperfect , and my etsy shop, www.etsy.com/shop/partymeperfect. Among the new items you’ll see in the shop are a variety of ducky themed items….I know, the ones out there who know me are probably wondering why it’s taken me so long to come out with ducky items! I wonder the same thing myself…but it’s finally here! The current ducky items in the shop include a 3 tier diaper cake with recieving blanket, a two tier diaper cake (or centerpiece) and a ducky themed gift baskets which includes a 2 tier diaper cake, 3 recieving blankets and a ducky print teddy bear. Take a look at my Etsy page and facebook fan page and please pass it on! I am hoping to grow Party Me Perfect in the next few months and I can do it with your help!

As for other new items in the shop you will see burp cloths and a 4 tier you-decorate diaper cake (a blank canvas that I assemble and you decorate any way you like!). Any items you see in the shop are customizable to fit your party’s theme or color scheme. I also accept custom orders! If you’re looking for an owl themed diaper cake….DONE! Looking for a safari themed cake….DONE! Let me know what you need and I will create it for you!

 

 

 

Today was Baby Emma’s shower. It’s one I’ve been planning for a while. The theme for this shower was based in color….hot pink, tangerine and lemon, and over time, I found flowers appearing often as well! Here’s the pictures!

I set up a candy buffet to add some color and to use as favors

Here’s a close-up of the cake….and yes, even it was pink and yellow!

This was the entry table. It held the diaper cake, guest packets, “Price is Right” game basket, the onsie for guests to sign for the baby, name tags (decorated with pink, orange and yellow sharpies!), a “guess the number” game (in this case, guess how many chocolates) and a beach themed gift box for the guest whose birthday was the closest to the mom’s due date.

Here’s a closer picture of the Price is Right basket and the gift box. The gift baskets contained a beach towel, insulated cup, sunscreen and after sun lotion.

Diaper cake!

A pink and orange polka dot onsie for Baby Emma, signed by each guest….perfect for framing!

As guests arrived they each took a guess at the day Baby Emma will arrive.

Each person wrote their name on a tag, and pinned it to the day of their choosing.

The entry table also held these guests packets. Each packet contained the 2 paper based games we played, an 8×8 scrap-booking page we used to make the guestbook and a blank card where each guest wrote advice for the mom to be.

Here are a few of the pages made for the guestbook, and the book itself. Pictures will be added to each page.

The gift table held an “Emma” sign, painted to match the color scheme.

This is a pin I made for the mommy to be to wear, but unfortunately I left it at home!

The shower was held outside on a patio in the community center of my friend’s neighborhood. The colors looked beautiful together, especially out in the bright sunshine!

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!

I know, I know….another diaper cake, but look at it! It’s beautiful! I love the blue and green and I love the patterns. Just wanted to share! My planning for the two baby showers continues….when those are over, I promise the blog won’t be so baby-centric. And I will be sure to share pics of both the parties once they are all put together.

Check out my latest creation….cupcake cuties! Theses diaper cupcakes are great for a baby shower as a gift for mom or individually as a favor for guests! They also make a great hospital gift for a new mom to celebrate the birth of her little sweetie!

So recently (as you may have seen if you’ve been following my posts) I’ve become obsessed with making diaper cakes. I love it….they’re fun, they’re easy and they’re cute! My ideas seem endless. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing though. I find myself shopping for supplies every day. Personally, I’m a fan of the “plain” ones. The ones decorated with ribbon, some flowers or maybe a cute stuffie. However, I know many people prefer the ones with baby items and/or clothes on them. I like those too….but I love the simplistic look of the plain ones. I would have pictures to share with you of my latest creation, but after going shopping to pick up some more diapers, the one thing I forgot to get were…..diapers. Today I picked up a few onesies, socks, hats and a few other items to turn into flowers to take a try at using flowers made from clothes rather than regular flowers. That way I still get my simplistic look, and the new mommy still gets her extra present! Stay tuned for more pics as my obsession continues!
