Good news I found my camera cord in the bottom of the toy bucket. So I was going to do a different post today but the pictures turned out terrible so I want to re-take them. So instead I will do this one. As I mentioned in a post before I forgot to bring my camera to the baby shower. It really turned out looking cute. First I will try and paint what it looked like with words then I will show you some second hand decorations:)
Here is my best wordy explanation of what we did. I had the tables set before people got there. I had started with white table cloths. Then I used red and turquoise square plates alternating each spot. I also had red and turquoise napkins that alternated, so it was turquoise plate with red napkin etc. Then everyone had yellow plastic wear. Fun bright Dr. Suess colors. Then I had little glass vases with Dr. Suess "tree's" in them and set those on the tables. I also borrowed a bunch of Dr. Suess plush animals from a teacher friend and had those set midway between the vases. And lastly I had little 2 inch squares (stolen from a matching game) of all sorts of Dr. Suess Book Characters sprinkled on the table. Oh it was cute and fun! Then we had a table set up for presents and in the center of that was a really good Dr. Suess Diaper cake made by baby's grandma. Then on another side we had a display that had the party favors stacked up and the advice book I made for people to write in and the wooden Dr. Suess quotes I made and another Diaper cake made by the other grandma that was a Horton Hears a Who theme and One Fish Two Fish stacking blocks. Oh it was cute display! Then of course there were streamers up high and I made tissue paper pom pom balls and had them hanging up. And On the wall I had some red and blue boas hanging and made them into clothes lines in which I hung some Dr. Suess bibs and burp clothes. I wish oh how I wish I hadn't forgotten my camera. We also did the shower in a club house which was nice because there were no "homey" decorations to take away from the Dr. Suess decor.
But I did have left over decorations and my baby monkey just had her first birthday. So I simplified my life and re-used some of the decorations. Lucky for you I do have pictures of that.
So here are some of the tissue paper pom poms.
So sorry for the long wordy post. Maybe someday I wont be so crazy but I wouldn't count on it if I were you.
PS. the matching game and the one fish two fish stacking blocks were bought from Suessland.
