Even if you’re not typically an artistic person, you can create a beautiful hand painted baby gift for the soon to be mom in your family or group of friends. Mom will be super excited to hang it in her little one’s nursery and the gift will be cherished for years to come. Before beginning to paint a picture, attempt to find out the colors or theme she will be using in the nursery and use that information.

Burlap Painting

For this beautiful gift, you’ll need a piece of burlap (no smaller than 8 X 10), stencils of your choice and paint. Starch and iron the burlap so it’s nice and flat, and then utilize the stencils to create beautiful designs. You can do the child’s name or simple designs. Colors that look beautiful on burlap are pink, dark blue, gold and emerald green. After the paint has thoroughly dried, put the burlap into a matted frame.

Fun Baby Shower Bottle Cupcakes

If you want a super cute baby shower snack, or you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional cake, this is a fantastic idea. These fun baby shower bottle cupcakes are easy to make and they’re delicious as well. Here’s what you’ll need:

Bottle Nipples (one for each cupcake)

Glass Jar for each cupcake

2 Cupcakes for each jar

Blue and pink tinted icing

Ribbon and tags

How to Create Them:

Here’s how to make them. Simply cut the cupcakes in half. Place one half in the bottom of the jar and add a thick layer of icing. Place the top layer of the cupcake in the jar and mash it so the icing spreads throughout the jar. Add another layer of icing and another cupcake bottom, then another layer of icing and the top of the cupcake. Finally, add another layer of icing on top to fill the bottle before placing the nipple on top.

Decorate the jar by tying ribbon around the top of the jar. You can add tags to personalize the cupcake jars and use colored ribbon that matches your baby shower theme. This is a really cute idea and of course, very yummy!

Gender Reveal Baby Shower Ideas

For the couple who hasn’t yet let it slip what gender their baby is, a gender reveal baby shower is a wonderful idea. It can be a lot of fun, and the theme can be used to create snacks, gifts, and party favors. Here are a few great gender reveal baby shower ideas.

Colors for Decorating

So that no one will guess the gender immediately, decorate for the baby shower in shades of green, yellow, or white. Alternatively, you can use both pink and blue decorations so the guests still can’t tell whether the baby will be a boy or girl until it’s time for the reveal. Fun décor items can include balloons with question marks drawn on them, to play up the theme.

Gender Reveal Games

If you want to reveal your baby’s gender through a game, there are a few great ideas. Have several boxes wrapped in white paper with question marks drawn on them. During the gender reveal game, have ladies write a number on a piece of paper. Place them into a hat, and pick a number. When a specific lady’s number has been drawn, let her pick a box.

She can unwrap it to find the gender of the baby. All of the boxes should be empty except for one, which contains a clue to the gender. A few ideas for the item include a blue or pink pacifier, a blue or pink baby outfit, or the ultrasound picture naming the baby as a boy or girl!

Gender Reveal Cake

Another really clever idea for a gender reveal baby shower is a cake that reveals the gender of the baby. This can be done by having the cake tinted pink or blue before it’s iced. Then, when the cake is cut, the guests will get a huge hint as to whether or not the baby is a boy or girl.

Gender Reveal Baby Shower Favors

Favor boxes or tins with colored candies are great baby shower favor ideas for this theme. These beautiful Clear Top Mint Tin favors can be filled with pink or blue Jordan almonds, or other candies that fit the theme of your baby shower. Alternatively, you could choose the Pink or Blue Teddy Bear Design Favor Key Chains and have them wrapped so no one gets a clue before the reveal!
