Chloe’s baby shower is fast approaching and I’ve been busy at work crafting the decorations. In my last post I showed you how I made miniature pinwheels that will be used on the napkin rings at each place setting. I’m also using them on the diaper cake as well as on the banner that will grace the mantle at the party.
The theme for this lovely little shower is “You Are My Sunshine”. We decided on using mint, coral, and gray with accents of gold and white. I pieced together the hanging banner today and wanted to give you a sneak peak.
I used 12 “ paper Mache letters, a cute frame and then a hanging banner to spell out our theme. I crafted tissue paper tassels and used more miniature pinwheels to add interest to the banner. I found a great tutorial from The Sweetest Occasion showing how easy it is to make your own tassels!
I embossed gold polka dots on the “U” and “R” to tie in the gold.
I laid it all out on my craft room floor to get a good idea of how the finished product will look all strung up on the mantle.

Yep, crafting chaos as it’s best. My desk is so full I usually end up working on the floor! It’s how I do.
Next I’m putting together the diaper cake. I’ll show you what I come up with and how you can make your own too!
