Here's a run-down of the handmade items created for the baby shower:
- Handmade Baby Shower Invitations featured a red rocket mounted on a spring to show it blasting off a ribbon rocket trail.
- Shooting Star Hanging Decorations and Blast Off Party Banner reinforced the baby shower theme as guests entered the party.
- Starburst Guessing Game featured a trifle dish layered with different colored Starburst candies. The person who guessed closest to the number of candies in the dish got to take it home as a prize.
- Rocket Diaper Cake made a festive centerpiece for the gift table, as well as a functional take-home for mommy.
- Star-punched Sandwich Flags brought a little whimsy to the refreshment table.
- Curious George Rocket Cake was masterfully decorated with precious details. This baby shower cake was almost too cute to eat.
- Blast Off Baby Bingo Cards kept guests engaged as the shower gifts were opened. Attendees wrote one baby item that they thought might be opened during the shower in each of the cards' squares, and as gifts were opened, they could cross the respective items off on their cards until someone shouted, "Bingo!"
- Mini Moon Pie Party Favors provided an out-of-this-world treat for guests to take home. The personalized favors stated the shower theme, mommy's name, and the baby shower date on the back. They looked adorable placed in a small wire baby carriage decorated with stars.
Many thanks to my fellow hostesses, Argenia & Ann, for helping create an adorable event. It was definitely a blast!
