Girl’s Baby Shower Ideas

This past weekend I was blessed to attend a baby shower for my friend, Aisha who just had her second baby. Both of her children are girls, Paige and Poppy. I have a special place in my heart for families with two girls, since that is how I grew up. And our first two children are both girls. But now my girls have a pesky, fun-loving little brother to boss around.

DIY Time

It’s DIY Time again, where I post something you can do yourself rather than buy, which is a money saver, and can be just plain fun!  Some of these posts are craftssewing projectsre-purposed ideas,homemade cleaners, homemade health aidstutorials, and the like.

Anyway, my friend Amanda decorated for the party along with making and decorating the cake. She has a gift for creating fun party atmospheres and giving attention to detail. The whole display was so beautiful I wanted to capture it on my camera. I originally took some pics with my iPhone, but wanted better pics, so I got my good camera, and was able to take some pictures of the beautiful shower for Aisha and her family.

I asked Amanda and Aisha permission to share the fun time. If you are hosting a baby shower for a girl, this may inspire you with some fun ideas.

Since Poppy is the baby’s name, Amanda went with a poppy flower theme. Poppies were everywhere. So cute! Here is a tutorial on how you make them.

Amanda also had celebratory tissue flowers or tissue pom poms floating from above.

There was a headband making station. The station was stocked with a variety of different colors and sizes of headbands, along with flowers and jewels to make for little Poppy. Glue guns were warmed up and ready for the challenge. What a great idea!

Amanda had garland zipping along throughout the house. Garland is so festive, and I love the idea of sewing paper flower cutouts together to make a fun garland. Zip your cutouts through a sewing machine and you have a fun string of garland. It’s on my mental someday list!

There was also a Make-Your-Own Italian Soda Station with step-by-step instructions:

  • ice
  • 2 pumps of flavoring
  • club soda
  • a splash of cream
  • top with whip

And look at this ribbon cake Amanda made that morning. True artwork I tell you.

Great job, Amanda, and congratulations Aisha and family on the birth of little Poppy!
