one of the major things i wanted to make was a diaper wreath that would serve a dual purpose. one, it was a decoration (that erika ended up keeping) and two, it was also a memory game.
the wreath was hung on her front door for guests to see as they came in, then unknown to them, they had to try and remember as many things on the wreath as they could. having been my first diaper wreath, i am very pleased with how this creation turned out! here's a few more photos so you can see some of the things put on to the wreath.
i had made these for amy's baby shower last year, originally seen at jessica's baby shower so i HAD to do them for erika's! last time i used fruit lifesavers, and they were SUPER sticky. this time i used the wintergreen ones and larger jelly beans and i think these turned out a lot better. the only thing i wasn't so fond of was the string i used this time since i ran out of ribbon (and couldn't find my big spool i bought last year)
we used these for the traditional "don't say baby" game, instead of clothespins. we also added in the word "cute"as a word to not say. i still had just enough spray paint from the last round to make these ones.
these cupcakes were one of the first things on pinterest that i knew would be a perfect addition to the woodland theme. the little "acorns" were the perfect touch instead of having globs of frosting. i made 2 kinds of cupcakes for the shower. one, similar to her bridal shower treats, were chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting. the others were vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting - i dyed it green to add a bit of color to them as well. the acorns are made from a hershey kiss, nutter butter bites cookie and butterscotch chip for the stem. clearly the buttercream "glue" showed up a lot, so i'd likely advise anyone that made these to dye the frosting brown so it wasn't as obvious :)
i didn't get a picture of the invites or bingo cards, but you can view them on etsy at inkyinvite. they were perfect!
