Aqua & Orange has to be one of my favorite color combinations! Maybe because I am an Auburn Tiger and blue and orange run through my veins. But I do love anything aqua! So when Suzie from Project Party Perfect sent her Aqua & Orange baby shower, I was in love. I love the simple details of this baby shower.
Suzie shares her DIY tips for creating a special day for the mom-to-be:
“This past weekend I co-hosted my first baby shower at my place. The mom-to-be wants the baby’s gender to be a surprise so I created an orange and aqua/blue theme. The party was so much fun and most importantly the guest of honor was very happy. 🙂 The beautiful invitation was purchased here...we removed the birds and changed the wording. It looked perfect in my Ikea frame! I made my tissue paper pom-poms in orange and blue to cover my ceiling fan (well-attempted to cover it, the wings were still peaking out. Love going through the $1 aisle at Target-found cute white tins for the cutlery!
My red velvet cake pops were displayed on a DIY cake stand. I purchased candlestick holders and white plates from the Dollar Tree store and just glued them together! I used an ice cream glass for the taller stand. Total cost for 3 cake stands: $6! Party Tip: My new favorite baby shower game: Diaper Designer! All you need is toilet paper, get teams of two (1 is the model and the other is the designer) and they have 3 minutes to design the best diaper. The winner is chosen by the mom-to-be. This game is the perfect ice-breaker! All my candles were in recycled baby food jars! The favors were recycled baby food jars filled with bath salts. I purchased fabric from Jo-Ann Fabrics and cut 4″x4″ squares and hot glued the onto the lids and tied with ribbon.”
