Cupcake Baby Shower Party Theme

Who wouldn’t love a party centered around cupcakes?!

That’s exactly what Jessica from Party Box Design thought when she created this adorable “My Little Cupcake” baby shower for her friend, featuring personalized paper details, a bright color palette inspired by baby-to-be’s nursery, and gourmet cupcakes, of course!

(Side note: “My Little Cupcake” would also be a cute theme for a 1st Birthday Party!)

Read on for all the details, as told by Jessica

Theme Inspiration:
The mommy to be is putting together the most darling little baby room with the most fabulous colors, so the colors I used for her baby shower were the colors of the baby room. I thought, “she’s baking a little “cupcake” in her belly, so lets go with that theme” (plus cupcakes are just darling)!

Chocolate Brown, Raspberry, Pink, Yellow, and hint of Orange

I used whole lemons & lemon slices inside the floral vases to create a yellow base. I LOVE using citrus with flowers! The flowers used here were ranunculas, hydrangeas, and just a touch of hot pink roses (for a small pop of pink).

Signature Cocktail: “Cupcake-tini”

Party Favors:
The party favors followed the theme. Guests could take home the “DIY Cupcakes” bake their own “little cupcake” at home! I made the favor tags, and the baking instructions were on the back of the tags. (More DIY details here.)

    What fresh and fun ideas! Great use of simple lemons and ribbon to create the custom look of the vases– a little bit of creativity can save you a LOT of money without sacrificing an elegant, modern look!

    OMG this is soooo adorable :) Definitely a great idea for me (in the future) since I’m kind of known in the family for baking cupcakes ;)

    The floral arrangement is so beautiful! Besides a shower and first birthday … I could see this as a theme for a cook/decorate your own cupcake birthday party too.
