White, coral and gray are soothing colors that don’t sacrifice when it comes to beauty. If you don’t care for coral, try turquoise, purple or another vivid color. The great thing about white and gray is that they look fantastic with absolutely any other color.

A Unique Hospital Guest Book for Your Bundle of Joy

When your little one is born, you’re going to want tons of pictures and you’re probably going to save a lot of mementos that remind you of this special time. This beautiful guest “book” idea will give you a fantastic keepsake that reminds you of all your hospital visitors – and someday, your child will appreciate this as well.

Here’s what you’ll need:

A Onesie (you can purchase a plain one or order one in advance with your little one’s name on it)

Sharpie Markers

It’s super simple…all you do is ask everyone who comes to visit to sign the onesie with a little message to your baby. They will fill up the onesie with their love and signatures, and you will have a tangible reminder of the special time.

You can then hang the onesie in a shadowbox frame and hang it in your little one’s room, or you can place it in a special box with other mementos and keepsakes from special times in your baby’s life.

As an alternative method, you can have everyone sign the onesie with a pen and then have the signatures and messages embroidered into the onesie. This is a beautiful keepsake that you and your little one will adore throughout the years as a reminder of the outpouring of love you received when your baby girl or baby boy was born!

Baby Shower Onesie Guessing Game

This is a fantastic and fun game you can play at your baby shower, and it also lets you gather up some adorable onesies for your little bundle of joy! Here’s how you play:

When Inviting the Guests

When you invite your guests, ask each one of them to make or purchase a onesie that really represents them as a person. It might be something funny, a rock star onesie, a ballerina onesie, a nerdy onesie, etc. They shouldn’t write their name on the onesie or put it in a package.

When the Guests Arrive

When the guests arrive, they should quickly hang the onesie on the provided “clothesline” without allowing anyone to see which onesie belongs to them. The game is simple: the bride takes a long look at the onesies on the clothesline and tries to guess which guest brought which onesie based on the way the onesie looks. It’s a lot of fun, and the bride gets some great little gifts for her sweet one.

There are a lot of variations of this game. If you don’t want to ask the guests to bring onesies, you can simply provide onesie templates and allow the guests to decorate them at the baby shower. The bride can then guess which ones were decorated by which guest.

Girl Baby Shower Theme Ideas

If everyone knows you’re having a girl and you’ve chosen not to keep the gender a secret, why not celebrate with a very girly baby shower? There are a lot of different theme ideas to choose from, and each one can be a lot of fun to decorate for and celebrate. Here are some fantastic girl baby shower theme ideas.

Princess Theme

The princess baby shower theme is a very popular one, and as you welcome your little princess to the world, this shower theme lets you do it in style. The girls can be given fun crowns to wear during the shower, to celebrate their inner princesses. Décor can include glass slippers, faux spinning wheels, fairy godmothers and more. Favors like the Crown Design Bookmark are perfect for this theme, and sure to delight your guests.

Blooming Flower Theme

This is a really fun girl baby shower theme for summer baby showers. Flower-themed invitations can be given to guests, and the party décor can center on flowers. For instance, clear containers full of wild flowers can be used as centerpieces, and each guest can be given a corsage to wear during the party. The cake can be decked out with candied flowers, or created in the shape of a flower. Fun baby shower favors can include packets of flower seeds, too!

“Sweet” Heart Theme

This is a fun and tasty girl baby shower theme idea. The sweet heart theme centers on sweets of all kinds! Rather than having lunch, hosts can prepare dessert bars with make-your-own cupcakes or ice cream sundaes. Décor can include sweet-related items like cakes, pies, and other sweets. Favors like personalized lollipops or favor boxes full of goodies are a great idea. Have guests try to win a prize by guessing how many candies are inside a closed jar. This is a fun theme and can be a beautiful shower theme with a little creativity and imagination.

Make Over Theme

Another really fun idea, the make over theme just invites a little pampering. The host can hire a professional makeup artist to give makeovers to the girls during the party, and the cake can include fondant makeup accessories. Favors can include monogrammed cosmetic bags or personalized lip glosses.

Make Your Own Boutique Style Baby Shower Cupcakes

Everyone loves those adorable boutique cupcakes often found at baby showers and bridal showers. If you want that look but don’t want to pay the price, you’re in luck. You can create your own boutique cupcakes and have a lot of fun doing so!

Start with Typical Cupcakes

You’ll want to start with regular cupcakes made from either your favorite cake recipe or a pre-mixed box cake. Bake them according to the directions on the package, using cupcake liners for easy removal from pans. You should make about 2 cupcakes for every guest that will be attending the baby shower, and don’t forget to count the mom-to-be and family members.

Fancy Cupcake Wrappers

Using colored paper, create pretty cupcake wrappers by following one of the many tutorials available on YouTube. They’re not difficult to make, and you can choose paper that matches your baby shower theme as well as the colors. To make your cupcakes even prettier, choose a few different designs in coordinating colors. Make sure you have scissors, glue and paper punches on hand before getting started.

Icing

Use a decorator’s bag filled with icing in the color you want, and choose a star shaped tip. You can get these from virtually any craft store, or the craft department in your local grocery store. You’re going to want to have plenty of icing on hand to make sure the cupcakes are completely covered. Starting at the center of the cupcake, apply pressure to the bag until the icing comes out. Move in a spiral motion, covering the entire top of the cupcake with the icing. Do a few for practice first so you can get the hang of it.

Toppings

Finally, to finish off your boutique style cupcakes, add fun embellishments to the top. You can use cupcake picks with fun sayings, small pieces of candy, sprinkles, or anything you want. These are fun boutique style cupcakes that your guests will love, and they cost next to nothing!

3 Quick Tips to Make Your Baby Shower the Best Ever

Whether you’re the soon-to-be mom or you’re hosting a baby shower for a friend or family member, it can get quite stressful at times. With these 3 quick tips, you can make planning easier and ensure that the baby shower goes smoothly and that everyone has a great time.

Get RSVPs as Early as Possible

It used to be proper etiquette for guests to send their RSVP cards back to the host when they receive them, but these days things are a little more hectic. The card can get lost, guests can forget to send it back, and a lot of other issues can come up as well. Have your guests RSVP as soon as possible and allow them to do it however they want. Keep a notebook with you so you can write down the guests who have RSVPd. Have them send you an email, give you a phone call or even accept a Facebook invite. This will help you know exactly who will be attending so you can plan accordingly.

Approve the Guest List

This can be tricky if you’re planning a surprise baby shower for a friend or family member, but you should try to approve the guest list. If you don’t want to ask her, ask a closest friend or family member to her. This way, you can be sure that everyone who is on the list is someone that the mom-to-be would invite herself. Things can get pretty sticky if someone is invited who for whatever reason shouldn’t be.

Try to Accommodate Everyone

As you’re planning the baby shower menu and other aspects, do your best to accommodate everyone. Make sure there are vegetarian foods available as well as sugar-free options for those who may have health conditions. If you’re creating a coffee bar, offer tea as well. Offer up a variety of options so that everyone can find something they like. Nothing is worse than realizing a guest has special circumstances and there is nothing to offer her.

When you follow these 3 tips, you can ensure that the baby shower runs smoothly and that it’s fun for everyone.
