My oh my, how I love planning parties! I will gladly plan a party any day! My manager is pregnant and we decided to have a simple baby shower for her at our district meeting. Of course, I volunteered to be in charge of it! BIG SURPRISE, I know! Since we were gathering for a meeting, not a baby shower, I needed to keep it VERY simple.
Since my manager doesn’t know what she is having, I needed it keep it neutral colors. I created 2 “clothes lines” out of lime green tulle and hung some sleepers, diapers, stuffed animal and booties from them. I also created paper “blocks” that spelled out “baby”. I used command hooks to tie the tulle to so I didn’t leave holes in the conference room walls.
I used lime green, dark grey and white card stock to create the “blocks”. I cut the lime green paper 6×6″, dark grey 5×5″, and the white 4×4″, then glued them together with a glue stick. I added lime green adhesive letters and adhesive rows of lime green plastic beading that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.
I filled a few newborn size diapers with snacks and tied a lime green tulle bow around them. I placed these on the center of the conference table.
I placed 12×12″ lime green and dark grey cardstock under a cupcake stand for color. This had a nice effect when you looked at the cupcake display. I wrapped her gift in coordinating colors, as well. Although it was simple, it was very cute. She was surprised when she entered the conference room.
Welcome baby, very soon!
“Wonder what I will come up with next”…
