'Sweet' Baby Shower Favors

If you are planning a baby shower and need some sweet favor ideas - check these ideas out.

I love the cookie favors from Sugar Plum Fairy Sweets and Party Designs.  They offer one stop shopping for all of your party needs! Artisanal sweets, treats and edible favors!




I just might need to order fairy cookies from them for my daughters next birthday party!

I also like setting up a candy bar for guests to fill a bag or take out container of yummy goodies.  I set up this candy display for an all white baby shower.  There was a mix of men and women at this shower so offering candy was perfect for everyone.  



The key to a candy bar is consistency, tiered containers, ease of scooping out and bags or boxes for guests to put candy in.  You always want to do things in odd numbers - so 5 different candies.  If you are interested in a Candy Bar, contact us at That's My Kind of Party for help to set this up for your next party.  Prices start at $75.

Baby Shower / Mama to Be Gift Ideas

Guess what I have for you today - 3 GREAT GIFTS for the mom to be.

DIAPER CAKES - Diaper Cakes have been around for years and many people like to make them.  I particularly love Dee's Diaper Designs - very simple, almost elegant - all sorts of tiny clothes and blankets tucked inside awaiting the mom to be to unwrap and enjoy.  Dee can customize in pink and blue, polkadots, teddy bears etc.  I am not sure which one I like better - the lovey bunny coming out the top or the socks turned flowers adorning the sides.
Prices start at $45
contact: deloressellers @ netzero.net





ORIGAMI OWL - Customized lockets that tells a story.  Fill up a locket for the mom to be with baby charms or announce the gender  - with Its a Girl/Boy!
I started working for Origami Owl this year because its an awesome company and has a great overall concept.  I think its a perfect gift for graduation, bridesmaids, mom to be, and even a grandma for mothers day - very versatile because its customizable to each person.  Fill it with baby feet, heart, birthstones and an initial.  Prices start at $30

ALPHABITTY - Help the new mom decorate the nursery with a special art print.   Alphabitty is original hand painted whimsical letters arranged to spell the childs name.  Maryann will help you create something special for that new baby!!  Price for matted print is $25
