Meg's Baby Shower Decorations

Here are some of the decorations I made for Meg's baby shower last weekend. The theme was "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", and the colors were Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, and So Saffron.

I made a diaper cake using this tutorial. So fun and easy! It is topped with a monkey, because Meg and her husband love monkeys, and that is the theme of the nursery.



Here's some close ups:


Here are some sandwich toppers - I made 30 of these suckers:

(homemade chicken salad, yum!)

The favors that everyone went home with - star cookie cutters with a stamped tag. (I made 30 of these suckers, too!)


I know this isn't stamped, but it is my favorite decoration that I did, so I wanted to show it anyway. We strung a rope across the doorway and hung baby clothes with clothespins. I loved it!!! Meg got to keep all the clothes for her baby.
