Described Below: THEME, TABLETOP, HUTCH DISPLAY, AND ACTIVITIES

*****

THEME:

This "Bundle up for Baby" baby shower is filled with soft and warm elements that make you want to get cozy and "bundle up"! Mint green paired with yellow and neutral colors like white, cream, and tan give this party a light palette that eludes winter. Fun baby elements like yarn rattles, glittered pacifiers and of course the elaborate 3 tiered diaper cake made from extra-soft Little Snugglers diapers from Huggies!

PRINTABLE  PAPER DETAILS:

The paper details played a huge part in bringing the theme to life. You can find the Winter Baby Shower Printable Collection utilized here – as well as coordinating custom items like invitations and personalized party signs – in our Etsy shop in two different colorways: Yellow+Mint (as seen here) or Pink+Chocolate!

– Gourmet boxed lunches wrapped in napkins and pinned with a printable tag were placed on top of each "snowflake" charger.
– For glasses we used mason jars wrapped in cut pieces of terry cloth towels and yellow ric rac trim.

ACTIVITIES:



Wishing Tree Details:

This activity doubles as a thoughtful keepsake for mom!



– Before the party take a manzanita branch and mount it in a container filled with rocks. Cover the rocks with scrap pieces of muslin fabric.
– Pre-glue loops of bakers twine on the backs of the message cards so that the guests can hang them on the tree after they write their message.
– Have each guest write a message to mom/baby on a printable card (included in the printable collection).
– We used colored pencils that looked like branches to keep it rustic.
– A printable party sign that explained the activity was displayed in a white frame embellished with mint green buttons and placed next to the tree.
