Baby shower decorations- the main event!

For the last month, my crafting life has revolved around one exciting event- my friend Mandy's baby shower. I had a lot of fun searching for baby shower decoration ideas. I was truly inspired by all these amazing and generous women who wanted to make a baby shower really special for their friends.

Using some inspiration found here and here I decided on some decoration ideas for the shower, all fitting into a blue and yellow theme for her new baby boy. If you'd like to know how I made some of the items, I wrote some posts about the process of making a baby bouqueta fabric flower corsage and a tutorial for making fabric baby bunting.  

On the day, I was in charge of making the place look festive while two of Mandy's other lovely friends and her mum made food and cakes. They did such a great job and I literally spent all afternoon eating! Mandy really enjoyed her day and loved all her little surprises. It was so nice being able to spoil our friend. :)

On the day I failed to bring a camera with me (fairly typical). Luckily Mandy's husband Daniel is a great photographer and he took some snaps of the detail for me. Thanks so much Daniel!

It was so much fun making all the bits and pieces and decorating the room and tables. It would be such a fun full time job! (sigh, if only......)

Here are some other pics from the day:

    Lindsey it was such a beautiful day thanks to all your creative efforts. The decorations were amazing. We have decorated the nursery with some of the things and the rest we have put in a keepsake box so we can reminisce and one day show our little Bambino how much love there was for him even before he was born!
    Thank you for pouring all your love into this project. It was very special.

  9. So chic baby shower decorations! These entire decorations are very inspirational and I would love to use all these ideas in my cousin’s baby shower but I am interested to book some outdoor event space Chicago for this bash. Hoping to find a nice venue within my budget.
