These are pics of the deco's i did for a baby shower earlier this month. Everything was made. I honestly don't think I bought anything but the paper plates and stuff like that. lol. Totally cute in my opinion. I had so much fun doing all of this.

Here is the diaper cake I made. First time I ever tried this btw. I had fun. The flowers are baby rags attatched to baby spoons and then the purple ones are baby spoons with flower petals from my scrapbooking hot glued on so it wouldn't damage the spoon.

**I don't recommend having any baby stuff around a 4yr old little girl who loves baby dolls. She tried to steal the pacifiers from the diaper cake and the diapers when I was putting it together. Her babies supposedly needed them too.  Roll Eyes  **

Here are the toothpick Monkey's I made for the cupcakes. My niece stuck her finger in this one... Sorry. lol.

Here are the invites. Making 25 of these was a lil bit of a pain but they turned out awesome.

Here is the sign, hard to see in the pic. Says Angel's Baby Shower on monkey's. Cheesy Then I did tissue paper flowers around the house with different types of ends. Some I curved the 'petals' and others were fringed and some were cut into a v.

The gifts. There were candles with the baby shower info on it in pink organza bags and then in the boxes were kisses with angel's baby shower stickers on the bottom.

The sign. It was a shame that rain came about the time we were ready to put it outside. Lukily I had friends that came to help set up the decorations after I had put them all together but rain just sucks. My poor sign looks droopy. Which by the way was dirty cheap to make. The stake is from walmart garden center, the white is just a poster board bent in half and hot glued to the stake and then the letters and monkey were cut outs from my cricut that I glued on. I had my friend's little girl tie on the balloons. Cheesy

So this is how it looked. If you can't tell she wanted a monkey theme. lol. Turned out amazing. Got a ton of compliments and people asking me to do theirs.

The monkey theme is very cute and great for both boys and girls!  I really like the advice poster, what a great idea to include for new moms Smiley
