Cirque Du Bebe themed Baby Shower

You all know my excitement for things related to crafting for baby girls. Imagine my excitement when I found out we would be throwing a girl shower… ahhh- pink! And remember my group of girlfriends called “The Coyotes”? I introduced them properly in THIS post, we have been friends for 20+ years. One of them announced her pregnancy last summer and we obviously started planning the shower right away. But her precious baby girl decided to come too early and had to spend some time in the NICU. She is such a strong healthy girl is currently home now :) We had the shower last week right before she came home. 


I was responsible for the decorations and  helping set up the headband bar. I really can’t take credit for anything else. Our Theme: Cirque Du Bebe – french circus, pink and grey, elephants, polka dots, stripes and more pink :) I made the GABBY banner with my Cameo, and the ruffled streamers (via MADE).


For the Headband Bar; I made 3 different sized headbands in 6 colors. I also made gift tags that I will share later this week. Then we just got buttons, flowers, sequins, ribbon, felt, and fabric scraps to set on the table. We set out some “instructions” and a hot glue gun. One of the girls found an Eiffel Tower to display the finished headbands on.


The girls did an amazing job with the food. 


They even made paper cones for popcorn and “french fires” and displayed them in peanuts in keeping with the French Circus theme. 


I also made a bunting using Gabby’s nursery colors so she could use it at home too. 


We had a little punch bar complete with mason jars and paper straws. 


The cake was not only beautiful but was so good too! I made the cake bunting with the scrap fabric from the name banner. I double sided the flags and glued them to bakers twine.
I have talented friends :) 
I made some happy garland (also via MADE), because it’s so easy that I am now addicted to making it. One of the girls brought a baby book to match our theme. 

Here are all of the hosts. With an action shot of my bunting.

It was such a success. How could it not be with a pink theme :) Happy Shower Day Gabby!
