I had the pleasure of helping a friend put together the cutest candy themed baby shower. The Mom to be loves candy, so the hostess designed the whole shower around a bag of skittles. It was a “taste the rainbow” color scheme with black and white as the neutrals. It turned out fabulous. I helped by first designing the invitation. I loved how it turned out and it got rave reviews from the guests.
The hostess did a lot of planning during the months leading up to the baby shower, and there were many planning and crafting days to get everything perfect. One of the biggest projects was putting together the lollipop and skittle centerpieces.
The best part of the party (in my opinion) was the gift that my mom and I put together. It started with a simple idea of a gift basket and exploded into the best baby shower laundry gift basket ever put together.
The basket contained:
- Altered Letters (that spelled the baby’s name)
- A clothesline with clothes attached for each age from 0-3 months up to 4T
- Altered clothespins
- Altered plastic closet dividers for each size of clothing
- Dreft laundry detergent
- Dreft Stain Remover
- Snuggles dryer sheets
- Tide To Go pens
Everything altered was done using the same scrapbook paper that matched the nursery (tiffany blue/turquoise, black and white), that I also used on the candy buffet table.
