I was recently asked to make decorations for two baby showers. The interesting thing was that their themes were quite similar. One had an Alice in Wonderland theme, and the other theme was a children's storybook. The three items I made for each party were a banner, cupcake toppers and confetti for the table.
For the Alice in Wonderland banner, I cut pieces from a children's book

and cut the baby's name in a coordinating color.
The cupcake toppers were miniature Alice in Wonderland books.
Here you can see the mix of rocking horses, caterpillars, teacups, and butterflies confetti cut from coordinating cardstock for the table.
For the other baby shower, a children's storybook theme was carried out with banners cut from various storybooks. Smaller banners were cut from primary colors.

The cupcake toppers were once again miniature storybooks.
And you can see the confetti on the table. The pieces were little open books cut with my electronic cutting machine.

For this shower, the hostess wanted to add some purple accents because the mom-to-be loves purple. She made this diaper cake, an inspiration from the story "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse."
She asked me to make these little purses to use as party favors. They were cut from a Martha Stewart template.
Creating for parties is very enjoyable. Now I'm designing bridal shower decorations. I'll share photos soon.
