My other sister-in-law (Rachelle) came up with the idea to throw a diaper shower for her, since it is her second baby. So, we invited a few close family and friends and had a little party to celebrate this little one's arrival!
Rachelle found some inspiration on Pinterest, and recreated an invitation that she saw there. (I would have linked to it, but the pin didn't send you anywhere, so I don't know where it originated) Isn't this adorable?!
So, my mother-in-law and I went with the mustache theme when preparing the games and decor for the party.
As is shown above, I printed some adorable little cupcake toppers (free printable at babalisme) and Hershey Kiss Labels. I also used the Cricut Paper Doll cartridge to cut out some mustaches from black vinyl to put on clear party cups, and some cardstock mustaches for a pin-the-mustache-on-the-baby game. :)
My mother-in-law is the food mastermind. :) She gathered a ton of food- going with our blue & green theme.
I didn't even show you half of it in the photos above!
To make the "Little Man" banner, I used the same mustache (from Cricut's Paper Doll Cartridge) as well as the Alphabet and Essentials cartridges that came pre-loaded on the Cricut that I have. I seriously loved making this banner- it wasn't complicated, I didn't have to do any cutting, and it turned out really cute!
I also made the triangle bunting you can see in the photo that Rachelle took of me hanging it ;) I will be posting a tutorial soon on how to easily make a paper triangle bunting from 12x12 scrapbook paper. My post about the other paper triangle bunting that I made has been popular, and I've recently posted a tutorial on how to make a paper triangle bunting.
That last photo is Rachelle's cute daughter wearing one of the mustaches for our pin-the-mustache game... and below, on the left, is one of the babies who was in attendance- let me recommend that if you are like us and have a bunch of babies at your party, get a group shot with all of the babies in mustaches! :)
And that's my daughter beside him, demonstrating the cool mustache cups :)
The mustache cups were my favourite part of the party. I had seen these on Pinterest as well, and if you don't want to make your own or don't have the materials needed, you can order them (or just the stickers) from flutterfly on etsy! (there are a bunch of mustache items in that shop, so check it out!)
I also printed some cute, free baby shower games from chickabug,
so if you're throwing a shower, be sure to check those out!
