So my SIL found out she was having a baby girl and we settled on a polka-dot theme. Its not ALL throughout the party but you may notice that we went with a lot of circular elements...polka dot confetti, spaghetti and meatballs for lunch, round candy for the candy bar etc....
so lets get started!
The layout:

snack table:

the main course table with diaper-cakeness (not made by me, but a gift for the mommy to be). my aunt brought the salad and really went with the circular food theme..sliced olives, round sliced radishes, carrots etc etc it was great!

candy bar! lots of round/polka dot elements here! and the babies name is here too, Jaycie. My SIL and I made the name out of block letters from michaels and decoupaged scrapbooking paper on top..we found inspiration here on craftster but I don't know where from.. lol

aren't our favors CUTE? we put them on a cup cake stand. They are little baby booties made out of styrofoam cups

we also gave away two flower arrangements as prizes to the winners of the two games we played. Here is one happy recipient! we did the citrus fruit to coordinate with the theme

Now for my favorite part and the part that got RAVE reviews! Onesie decorating!

Jamie (SIL) and I were up late into the night cutting out freezer paper stencils and fabric pieces for appliques. We pre-ironed some stitch witchery type stuff (iron on adhesive) to the back of the fabric before we cut out the appliques so it was super easy to have people just peel, stick and iron (had an ironing station set up). We will go over the appliques with our machines later. We also had fabric markers for people to use. I have to say people went CRAZY over freezer paper stencilling. they were so amazed!

Here are our results, this is about half of the onesies:

close ups:
the one on the left says "ask mom" on the back

and then mommy-to-be made a shirt for her 3 yr old son to where to the hospital

she put the tee on her tummy like that cuz we were talking about her son, Jordan (if you havent caught on by now they're all J's! Jaycie, Jamie, Jordan, and dad Jason) and how when we were ooh-ing and ah-ing over cute baby clothes he kept holding it up to her belly and saying "yep this fits baby Jaycie" lol

All in all it was a blast! if I had to change anything I think... I would have skipped games altogether and just did onesies. It took a long time and ppl really liked it.

Aww, everything is so cute. Great idea for painting onsies! And I noticed even mom-to-be had the circular/polka-dot theme going with her shirt. Congrats to you and you SIL!

That sounds like so much fun!  I love the idea of onesie decorating.  There is such a nice variety of results--really like the "Girls Like Blue Too."Now if someone (besides me) would just get pregnant so I could host one of these!

This is a really cute idea, I can't wait to get pregnant and do that at my shower. Also, my sister's husband is Jason, and their three daughters are Jailiana, Jaiden, and Jaicee. What a coinky dink.

How do you keep the paint from coming off when you wash them?
« Reply #8 on: January 04, 2010 05:19:55 PM »

Its fabric paint (well we mixed acrylic paint with a fabric medium) so usually the directions say after letting dry for 24 hours you can wash them..sometimes you have to iron it to set it. Just follow the directions on the back of the bottle
