3, 2, 1… The Countdown Has Begun! My vision behind the New Years Eve Baby Shower for Bird’s Party Winter Edition Magazine was lots of glitter in silver and pinks with clocks and top hats. I wanted a theme that could be done not only a baby shower, but as well as a bridal shower or even a New Years Eve Party. I first took my sewing table, some mod podge and a foam paint brush and covered the top with silver glitter. On top of that table went the drinks. Since it was for new Years you of course need champagne. I added the rock candy for a little extra effect, flavor and color. The other milk bottles held pink lemonade. I created the glitter effect on the bottle of those glasses with painter tape and then sprayed spray adhesive on them, followed with the pink glitter. My main dessert table held the pink pillow cookies, macarons, cupcakes, strawberry pudding, cake pops and Top Hat favor boxes. The New Years babies were made by Sugar High and she created exactly what I had envisioned. I wanted a cute little baby with a clock and top hat and tall enough to make a statement. I also placed one on top of the ruffle cake. Much Ado About Cookies created the pillow like cookies with the silver pearls. I wanted to stick with a bit more simple design with the cookies and got too “cutsey”. I did mini cupcakes it the bell jar and add the smaller version of the cupcake wrappers onto them. The clock frames were a simple touch to the whole table as well. The Top Hat favor boxes were another favorite of mine. I added the pink satin ribbon to each of them as well. They added the perfect touch to the table. The cake pops were made local and covered in disco dust. I then added the paper straws and flags with rhinestones as well to make them pop a bit more. They sat on a frame that was glitterized with pink cardstock in place of a picture. The cake was my first attempt at a ribbon cake. I wanted to add one of the baby fondant toppers to it and added just enough ruffle to be able to place the baby on top. I added a bit of silver disco dust for added effect. My idea for the balloons hanging came from Wants and Wishes. I didn’t want to use big balloons so opted for the 12″ in pink, silver and white pearl. For the backdrop I created a 20×30 image to mirror the invitation. The beautiful fringe garland came from the Fringe Exchange and was made to match my design. The table cloth was pretty pink satin fabric purchased from from Hobby Lobby. I sprinkled a bit of the silver glitter onto the top as well for added effect. I made glitterized spoons for the mini cups that were dipped in pink chocolate and pink pearls. Strawberry pudding was placed inside. The macaron’s were made local and for an added touch I place pink pearls around them. I truly enjoyed getting to create this table and had so much fun thinking outside the box for a theme!
