• You Are My Sunshine Shower

    Posted on June 23, 2015 by in DIY Project Gallery, The Perfect Party

    My cousin’s baby shower was a few days ago and everything turned out really great! I love how simple and sweet it was. Not too girly or overly done. I love love love the color combo too. Coral, mint and gray with touches of gold. My mom (who is A.Mazing) put this together with me. Her and I worked together to make this special day happen for Chloe. I can’t wait to meet her little Cedar Marie!

    This fun mantle display consists of a banner made from scrapbook paper, tissue and mylar tassels and miniature pinwheels. All strung on a simple piece of jute twine. I stamped and embossed gold polka dots on the paper mache “U” and “R” to tie in the gold. I think it’s just the sweetest!

    This is an antique cradle that’s been used for generations in my family. It has graced several showers we’ve thrown. It’s a fun and unique way to display shower gift and adds to the décor too.

    This is the diaper cake I made for Chloe. I love how cute it turned out! If you missed the tutorial on how to make your own diaper cake click here!

    The gray sign was made for me (for my kid’s bathroom) by my dear friend Jeni Barackman over at B Designs Home Décor. She does amazing custom signs and furniture using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

    I used the shower invitation we made as the “cake” topper. A fun way to tie your theme together!

    Mint, coral and gray chalk painted mason jars are a simple way to bring in color to the party. These sweet little flower arrangements my mom made were great centerpieces and doubled as shower favors for guests to take home. She gave each jar two coats of paint and then lightly sanded them, giving them a distressed look. She then wrapped some with lace that was actually used on Chloe’s wedding shower invitations! (We made those too, but that’s another post for another day)

    At the shower we had a sit down dinner. Each napkin was bundled up with a polka dot napkin and a miniature pinwheel. I showed how I made these in a earlier post. These painted mason jars had tags with the lyrics to “You Are My Sunshine” tied around them.

    I used the miniature pinwheels throughout the shower décor to make it cohesive. They are so simple to make! Glue them to skewers, make them into napkin rings, clip them to a hanging banner, use them as gift toppers….tons of ways to utilize them!

    Tissue paper tassels are a fun way to dress up the room! And aren’t the honeycomb balls too cute? I found those at a local party store called Fancy That! They were the perfect color so I had to have them.
