Rubber Ducky Baby Shower

It's been approximately nine months since my last craft post, so how about another just for fun?

Last June my cousin's wife gave birth to her first child. The month before we threw her a rubber ducky themed baby shower. It turned out pretty cute (and was surprisingly frugal).

Maybe you have a baby shower coming up and you can get some inspiration from these photos of ours! :-)

I purchased the booklet at Hobby Lobby for 2.50, when they were half off. To the window I added a personalized insert I created with my Silhouette software. The rubber ducks and "bubbles" were scrapbook stickers also purchased at Hobby Lobby. It's just sheets of paper on the inside. We asked the guests to leave their words of wisdom for the new momma.

Sam's Club is our go to bakery for cakes. They are inexpensive and just as tasty as a custom cake. We just added the rubber ducky momma and baby to match the theme of the shower.

So, this idea isn't a new one, but it is cute!
Add sherbert to froth it up, and float a few rubber ducks.

Waaaaaay at the end of the table are some cute baby booty mints.
Next to the punch bowl are cocktail picks.

We cut the ducks using a Cricut and
added a cherry and pineapple below.
On the guest tables.

This U shaped table layout makes for great viewing.
The banner is made from a duck pattern cotton and a terry cloth yellow bath towel.
You can see the momma there in the upper righthand corner.

I love to browse the Internet for ideas for any showers we throw, so hopefully some of you reading this now can do the same with this post. Have a great rest of your Wednesday!
