BOY Baby Shower Goodies and Ideas

Pin It
I always make a diaper cake when I host a baby shower.  Always.  It's easy to make, looks super cute, and is fun!  However, my friend that I recently threw a shower for had already been given a diaper cake! 

What was I going to do??!!

Search all over blogland for amazing ideas!  

I came up with three ideas.

Salt Water Taffy Kabobs 

  • Using bamboo skewers (100 count for about $1.50) slide taffy on, alternating colors
  • Poke into floral foam
  • Spray paint an old oatmeal box, stick in the floral foam and kabobs, and make it look pretty!

Inspiration for Kabobs can be found here at Heartland Paper Co.

Mini Pails Party Favors

I found these pails at Target for .$50 each.  ADORABLE!
Tie some tulle around the pail, stick in some treats 
(I did rice krispie treats; so easy)
Easy, CUTE party favors!!
Customized water bottle labels. 
I didn't really find a tutorial for this, so here's the run down.
  • Use my template below, or design your own label (I fit 5 to a sheet). 
  • Print them, and cut them out
  • Use contact paper to make them "laminated" (so the ink doesn't run when the bottle gets wet)
  • Wrap them around the bottle, and tape the ends together. 

Here's what my labels looked like (to give you an idea of how you could personalize it)

I have provided a blank template (that you can download and edit) for you to use! How nice am I??   :)
