(Big News)-Diaper Cake and Favors

OMG, I'm too syked. We're going to be GRANDPARENTS!!!!  Our Daughter "Jennifer" is blessing us with our first. And the baby is a Little Girl..So this Sat. I'm doing a Shower with one of her girlfriends at the Church Hall. How exciting.

I wanted to do a Diaper Cake and little Thank You Favors for the guest. I put inside some nice tea and chocolate. YUM...
Here are photos of my FIRST Diaper Cake I made. Her room will be Butterflies and the colors are "Green Galore, Temp. Tur. Purple, and some kind of Blue.
I choose different color ribbons and Purple poppies and White and Pink Roses at the top. The pictures don't do the cake justice, really. It's 3 tiers and flowers, booties, bibs, onesies, and toys all around and diapers for use.. This is my Centerpiece for the Food Table.

And I wanted to make some favors. I used an old SU envie template. I have alot of Retired DSP so I used that for my package. I printed out her name and date and then punched these out for the front with the little square scallop punch. And I used the little tag from the Sale-A-Bration-Punch Stamp Set, the Mobile.

And We're  having a door-prize also, but I didn't have any of those tickets so I made my own. Just used DSP and printed on them the same info. from the front of the favors and ten Numbered the back.

I'm  a little over-whelmed but if I wasn't I'm not doing it right :) Yes, I have my CHECK LISTS!!! I'm scared I'll forget something..

So all the little stuff is done. Now,,,Tomorrow will be the FOOD day.
And then SATURDAY is our Big event. March 12, 2011.

Thanks for staying with me. And I hope you can share in our excitement. Baby Girl is Due April 14th....Can't wait.
After all this I will get back to making cards. But for now my craft room is a mess!!!
Have a marvelous Day.......Joyce


  1. Joyce,

    OMG! Everything looks wonderful. I have never seen a diaper cake in person, but yours rocks. I'm sure the shower is going to be wonderful and congrats to your daughter Jennifer!

  2. Thanks Donna, I had a lot of fun making the diaper cake. I choose to use the bigger size diapers. You can go crazy putting stuff on these,,,it was a hit at the shower and a great table center piece. Good times had by all.
