Batter up! {baseball} baby shower!

Hi crafters,
I celebrated the upcoming birth of my nephew yesterday.  The invitation is a flat A7 invite.  The onesie is from New Arrival.  I used the markers to do the design on the onesie to make it look like a baseball jersey.


The pennant pieces are from Birthday Bash.  The font is Opposites Attract.  I made the center piece reservable, the nursery theme is a jungle/safari theme so I put a few Create a Critter animals on the back.  This is the first time I tied each letter on with twine or raffia, it worked very well, much easier than threading the tulle through each letter.

I made burp cloths with rickrack trim and a special appliqué alligator one for the nursery.  The alligator is from Create a Critter.


I also made her a bath apron the pattern is from blissful patterns.  The tutorial was pretty easy to follow, I struggled a little bit with the pattern though.  It was nothing my home-ec teacher mom couldn't talk me through though.

The center pieces were roses in a square vase tied with tulle, raffia, and bakers twine.  A local baker and high school friend of the mom made these adorable cupcakes.  I created the cake toppers with Sports Mania.  I cut the shadow of the baseball and sandwiched a cookie stick between the shadow and the regular cut.

The co-hostess picked up these cracker jacks as the favors.  I cut out tags from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more.  The bat is also from Sports Mania.  I printed the sentiment and used a Stampin' up! punch to cut it out.

The food labels are 4x4 scored in half with bats and baseballs as accents.

We put a chocolate fountain, drinks, and cupcakes on the kitchen table.  I put a large baseball on the table cloth to dress it up bit.

It was a lovely shower.  Nephew got a TON of great stuff!  He'll be here before I know it.

Happy crafting,

  2. This is very useful information on baby shower event. Couple of months ago, I arranged my niece’s baby shower at one of lovely venues in the town. After that did corporate event planning for her office annual party and everyone had great time there.
