A couple of weeks ago I shared the floral nappy cake I made for Fay‘s baby shower. I mentioned that I was going to do a series of posts on all the things I got for the baby shower and how we put it all together. Fay wanted an Alice in Wonderland theme with a mint, white and rose gold colour scheme. When it all came together the theme worked so well and it all looked beautiful. I’ll post about the Alice in Wonderland details separately, but today I wanted to show you some of the decorations we got to tie in the colour scheme. We were Kindly sent most of the decorations from Hobbycraft who have an absolutely gorgeous selection of decorations for special occasions.
The baby shower was held in fay’s back garden and we put up a gazebo to put all the food under. This was the perfect place to hand all the lovely decorations we bought. We also had decorations on the tables and lots of little pretty details to bring the theme together.
We chose this lovely banner in rose gold, which was so pretty. I really like the writing on the Hobbycraft baby shower range and that it’s quite grown up and not too cute or twee. The theme continued with these lovely balloons in white and mint.
We also got this Baby balloon garland to hang from the gazebo. This was really easy to inflate and looked lovely.
The only decoration I hung which wasn’t from Hobbycraft, were these paper pom poms, which I picked up in Poundland. I had planned to make some myself, but these were such a bargain that I had to go for them.
My biggest tip for putting up the decorations, would be to pick up a big packet of cable ties. I got loads in Poundland and it made it really easy to hang all the decorations. I also picked up helium from Argos to pump up the balloons, as well as rose gold curling ribbon from Amazon.
One of my favourite details was this frame, where people could write little messages, in place of a guest book. This makes such a lovely keepsake would make a cute addition to the baby’s nursery. We put this on the table so guests could pop their little note in.
Another little personal touch, was some Advice for Parenthood cards. We popped these on the table for guests to fill in and I think they’re a lovely little addition to baby showers and again something the mum can enjoy and treasure.
On the Table
We also got some lovely bits to serve the food and drink on, all of which match the decorations. These mint and rose gold plates were absolutely gorgeous and I loved the shape of them.
We also got these adorable stripy mint and rose gold paper cups to go with the plates.
I was so happy with all the gorgeous bits we got from Hobbycraft, I’ll definitely be popping there again next time I have a party.
To finish off the decorations I added a few things I already had, like my Whittard Alice in Wonderland tins and tea cups.
I’ll pop another post up next week, with some more baby showers things. I’m going to post about the home-made favours and invitations, the flavoured lemonades I made and the very gorgeous cake very soon, so watch this space!
