Baby shower party theme ideas

I'm organizing a bay shower party for my sister in law who is due to give birth on November. How I wish I am organizing mine but well since it's not our time yet I am so happy to be doing this for them.

Once we did a soccer/football baby shower for a friend and the rest of the baby showers I went to are all general baby shower so I am thinking of a theme right now.

The dad is into music and he play drums in their band so I can go with that;

A MUSICAL BABY SHOWER? I can make games that are all related into music.

What do you think of an invitation that looks like this?

or it can be a TRAVEL BABY SHOWER THEME (as the wedding theme of this couple is travel)

this is an inspiration board made by a creative mom / source:
I do not know though if i can execute something as cute as that but maybe I can be inspired and who knows what you can do when you are inspired. But I like the travel theme idea :) 

And also another idea (if it's a boy-I will know probably later this month) It can also be SPORTS BABY SHOWER THEME which I don't mind because it's very common and after all the Dad is also into Basketball.

But then I can give the sport theme a little twist as it also OLYMPIC year might as well make an OLYMPIC BABY SHOWER.. What do you think?

I can make the colorss of the Olympic as the color motif and then incorporate some olympic stuf fin the games :D

I still have at least  month to prepare. I'll post of course if what theme I pick but most likely-it will be  a travel theme party :) After all we all like to travel,  don't we?

Simple Flower Balloon

I am not too satisfied with these balloons because when we made this, we were pressed with time and there has been so much work going on. But in the end, it still added some cheers at the party. It is always nice to have balloons in your party place, it makes the place livelier.

Barbie Cake from Red Ribbon

Little girls will always be fascinated with Barbie and at one pint of their life will want a Barbie party. My niece had one when she was 7 (see her barbie cake here) and recently a friend's daughter celebrated her first birthday party in Jollibee with Barbie as her theme.

We opted not to get the cake that was included in the package because it's very generic (though the design is barbie) and we I wanted a more personalized cake. We went to Red Ribbon (their cake supplier) and to our surprise, the price difference is not that significant if you get it from them (to think you'll have your cake personalized pa)

Here's what the mom (my friend) chose for her daughter Ziah.

Not bad for Php 1,100 pesos right?

DIY luminaries

We did this for a friend;s wedding last April 2011. So perfect for a dinner reception and in a garden setting. Materials needed:
popsicle sticks
japanese paper
glue stick
votive candles
glass candle holder

I reget that I wasn't able to take pictures while we are doing these but as you can see in the pictures below, you have to make 4 panels. You'll need 4 sticks for one panel (formed like a frame) then cover it with your japanese paper. Put together all the 4 panels and you're done.

One of the most beautiful decors I've ever made :) I love the stick name and the pompoms. This was last 2010, I didn't know that it's been in the draft page of this blog eversince :) thus I only get to publish it now.

Simple Balloon centerpiece

we did this last week of  January for a birthday and a dedication. Simple balloon centerpiece, quite cheap. If you don't want to splurge much on a centerpiece, you can have this for only 40.00 each :) cheaper than the cheapest flower centerpiece right?

My pink dessert buffet

My first try with dessert /candy buffet. Not bad :)

Red,Black and Pink 18th Birthday

It was raining cats and dogs when we did this, thus my centerpieces which I wrapped in red and pink japanese papers were not that nice na, but still it was such a nice idea for a non flower table centerpiece.

This centerpiece served also as the wish tree (guest wrote their wishes and greetings in the pink silk ribbon and they tied it into the trunks)
