"You Spin Me Right Round, BABY" Baby Shower

THEME:
A colorful, unique baby shower featuring vintage vinyl records, fun/funky florals, contemporary patterns, and custom paper details.

DECOR:
– Modern paper patterns in the party’s color palette were printed out and used to customize a big batch of 30 vintage vinyl records purchased on ebay for $31. The customized records were used as “table runners” and also to completely cover the surface of the food & drink buffet. {They’d be super cute as hanging decor too!}

– Simple, colorful flower arrangements featuring an interesting mix of hydrangea, aster, tinted spider mums, dianthus, and button mums were displayed in modern white vases embellished with rhinestones & hand-cut custom paper details. I found the Black Faux Diamond Ribbon at Wholesale Flowers in San Diego – what an fast/easy/affordable way to add some bling!

– Custom 4×6 signs were displayed in double-sided Tolsby frames from Ikea.

– Favor-sized baby bottles from Social Couture were embellished with craft rhinestones and little drink flags.

– White candlestick holders were used to elevate modern plates and bowls on the food & dessert buffet and add height to the display.

– Several of the decorative items on the buffet & outdoor table – including the retro-mod serving dishes, translucent drink carafes, and solar-powered table lanterns – were purchased at Target! The sequined “charger” underneath the drink carafes is actually a mini Christmas tree tableskirt that’s part of our regular holiday decor. =)

– Plain white onesies (a staple that I personally LOVED when Macy was super tiny) were customized with decorative paper embellishments that could easily be removed after the party. The onesies were hung on the trees & plants using wooden laundry pins.

PARTY FAVORS:
In keeping with the theme, we filled simple cellophane bags with some of the new Almond Joy Pieces from Hershey’s which had the perfect shade of aqua blue to tie into the party. The bags were customized with coordinating favor tags and displayed in modern rows in a melamine dish. Each guest also received a bottle of nail polish in one of the “rock star” colors displayed throughout the party… there was even black! A special glittered bottle was reserved for mom-to-be.

FREE PRINTABLES:
I’m excited to be able to share some free downloads of the paper details I designed for this party with you! Click here to view/download the collection from my Scribd account right here: http://www.scribd.com/my_document_collections/3137297

Here’s a list of what’s included:
– 11×17 Paper Patterns
– 8×10 and 5×7 Signs
– 4×6 Signs
– Embellishments (used to decorate vases, white onesies, etc)
– Blank Cupcake Toppers
– Blank Favor Tags
– Blank Food/Drink Labels (can also be used as place cards)
– Drink/Straw Flags (also used with the mini rhinestone baby bottles)

Please Note: Since I don’t offer customize-on-demand services like a printable party shop would, these downloads can only be offered on an “as-is” basis (I’m unable to facilitate requests for color changes, name changes, etc). I’ve done my best to make the downloadable versions as generic/accessible as possible by removing the original names & initials and offering “blank” versions. Some elements are completely ready-to-go as-is (patterns, frames signs, etc), and others may require you to add text or an initial (drink menus, labels, favor tags) in Word, Photoshop, or a similar program. Enjoy! =)
