I made some of these when I was breastfeeding and decided to make some for my sister too, she is due any time now.
I made this headband from a plain black headband and then I added the ribbon flowers with pearl centers.
When looking for ideas for my sisters shower I fell in love with these little yellow flowers that look like golf balls but didn't know what they were, after looking around for them I discovered that they are called Craspedia or Billy Button flowers. They are so cute but when I called a florist to inquire about getting some for the shower the sticker shock just about knocked me over! Almost $2 per stem with 1 flower on each stem ! So I found this fabulous tutorial over at design sponge
For my sisters shower (seen here) I bought some fabric that I really liked that when with the yellow and grey bumble bee theme and used it in several places (honey favor tops, table runner, gift wrap, and to make cute custom napkins. But I wanted them to have nice professional looking edges and corners.
This was the cake I made for my sisters shower, I made it using an 8 inch round cake pan and a small half circle cake pan I had (but you can use 2 8 inch rounds and carve the shape so you don't have to buy a special pan). I then carved the shape of the middle part of the beehive from the 8 inch round cake. The cake was a honey lemon cake.
For my sisters baby shower I found this adorable idea on Pinterest to have all of the guests put their fingerprint on a tree as leaves and had the guests put their name with their fingerprint instead of a guest book no one ever looks at. This way they could hang it in the baby's room to show all the people who love them.
My sister and her husband put their fingerprints toward the bottom in a heart shape (one finger print facing left, one facing right). So cute!!
I saw this tutorial over at The City Cradle and knew I wanted to add them to my S'mores party. They used a stencil to apply corn syrup and then sprinkle with cinnamon. I used my Silhouette machine to cut out stencils and stick them on the wine glass to speed up the process and make it easier on myself.
Isn't my new dish soap dispenser cute!!! I was tired of having that bottle of Dawn soap out on the counter so I repourposed a hand soap dispenser that came with this little wire rack. I peeled off the label it came with (aided by WD40 to remove the old adhesive-I love that stuff) and then cut out a label with my Silhouette on frosted vinyl adhesive to the proper dimensions with the letters cut out.
