Pink Baby Shower Decor and Favor Ideas

Introduction


It's a girl! Well, not quite yet. A pink-themed shower is a perfect way to help a mother-to-be prepare for a little one.

Decor

Photo garlands make timelines of the mother and father's own childhoods -- and festive decorations. To make, sew pink glassine envelopes (with the flaps open) together, end to end, on a sewing machine; glue photos (or copies of them) to pink-colored paper and slide inside.

Ask guests to wrap their gifts in shades of pink to form an impressive display for the eagerly awaited girl.

Invites

Make an invitation for this pink fete out of a chain of paper dolls dressed up in scraps of patterned paper. Print the template. Accordion-fold 12-by-18-inch piece of construction paper so layers are as wide as template. Lay template on top (dotted lines on folds); cut out on solid lines. Use template to cut clothing from patterned paper (or photocopy fabric); affix with glue stick.

Favors

To give everyone a special keepsake of the party, have inexpensive rubber stamps custom-made with each guest's initial; then simply stamp plain stationery and tie each set with a ribbon.

    it's true you can find alpha stamps at any craft store, however, if you have multiple C's, A's or any other letter, you will end up missing some. Etsy has some fantastic custom items like this with lots of bang for your buck.

    Perhaps that wasn't written correctly. You should be able to find an inexpensive set of alphabet stamps at a craft store or a variety store. I doubt if they would have to be custom made.

    Where do I find inexpensive rubber stamps custom-make with each guest's initial?
