I'd like to add that I was EXTREMELY low on funds so all of the fabric things were made from my fabric stash.

My 16 year old daughter and I gave a party for her stepmom Smiley While it did feel odd throwing a party for my exhusband and his wife, I just looooove doing parties so I jumped at the chance of being artsy Smiley Thank you to the person who posted the onesie idea, it was a HUGE hit

at first people were VERY leary about going to the table. It was a come and go shower so i told everyone instead of cheesy games we were all making things for the baby to take home. I had a huge basket of fabric paint, sharpies and some pre-made appliques that I made. When people said 'oh, I'm not creative!' I just pointed to the appliques and iron and they were glad they could make something so easily! One lady even called the new mom after the shower and wanted a blank onesie to decorate at home Smiley Even the little kids were wanting to make one

for the shower favors I made tissue holders out of all different girlie prints I had

I got the tissues at dollar tree, they came in a pack of 12 for a dollar. Then i got some cello bags (20 for $1) and put a candle in and made a tag on word thanking them Smiley

for the baby I made a diaper bag with matching bath towel and changing pad

and some bib/burper/washcloth sets

anyway, I hope this helps everyone, I came here often for ideas and want to thank everyone who posted baby shower ideas that I used!

I think this is an amazing update to a frequently boring event. I am already a mom and although I had the best shower ever, I am completely jealous! Fantastic idea! How great to have something so personal from everyone who attended.
I was adamant about not having a shower and my friend/coworker threw one anyways. It was great but probably had a lot to do with the fact it was in a Sports bar with all the regular customers I had served there for over 10 years. My next baby shower better have customized onesies at it! The great bib and burp cloth sets are very cool and look super expensive...like the kind found in tiny boutiques all new mommies drool over! You have one lucky ex hubby and friend.

customized onesies are SUCH a good idea!  wow, great job on everything you put together!  it's very generous of you to throw a party together that's creative, well-done, and fun, especially when you feel slightly awkward. i love it Smiley
