A customer of LA BabyCakes put together this darling Dr. Seuss baby shower. The red and white striped table cover helps add fun and color to this cute table setting.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes! Lyndsey from Kitchen DoughDough is the genius behind these cupcakes! She says, “All you need to do is bake red velvet cupcakes in red liners, frost with white frosting, and add cotton candy for their hair!” Visit her site for details. Setting the Mood is another place to get creative, fabulous party ideas. I love all her Dr. Seuss signs and artwork! You’ve probably seen this Thing 1/Thing 2 baby shower by the talented Amy from Stem Parties. Her ideas are so fun and clever – I just had to include it!
Clever idea using punching balls hanging from the ceiling. I also used this idea with black and orange punching balls to fill a very large room for a halloween party. This is an inexpensive way to add some “punch” to the area you’re decorating. The balls are much larger than balloons and can be purchased at OTC for cheap. Raspberry lemonade cupcakes with lemonade frosting and pink cotton candy for fluff were made for the Horton table! Horton toppers were made out of magnets. Oh my…Kara is quite the gal. Make sure to visit her blog * Kara’s Party Ideas * for more clever Dr. Seuss ideas.
How about having Thing 1 and Thing 2 at the baby shower as helpers! My daughters have always been fabulous helpers at parties. Hire two responsible teens to help out – it’s always good to have extra help. If you can get them to dress up as thing 1 and thing 2, they’ll be a hit! Even a simple outfit with a red t-shirt or red apron and thing1/ thing 2 decal, would be cute!
Not wanting to fuss with elaborate centerpieces? Tie red, white and bright blue balloons to the Cat in the Hat lunchbox for a simple centerpiece. More ideas for easy centerpieces….
Choose one of these cookie jars as a centerpiece – after the party give one to the expectant mom as a fun memento of her baby shower!
This trash can be used as a centerpiece base for a food buffet table. Place floral foam/Styrofoam in the can – top with red paper shred and create characters out of poster board from Dr. Seuss. Attach the characters to dowels and display them coming out of the top of the can! It’s almost like arranging flowers – but with a different product. Baby Shower gift ideas:
