Pink and White Floral Baby Shower Decor

I love planning baby showers. There are so many creative décor themes and I love finding new DIY crafts to conquer. When I’m asked to host a baby shower, the first thing I like to do is ask the mommy-to-be if she has a certain vision for the shower. This is such a big day for the mommy-to-be and daddy-to-be, so I always want to make sure that it is what they want. If they don’t have something in mind, I will usually suggest three themes that I am envisioning and we will go from there.

The Baby Shower Theme

Floral Baby Shower Decor Crafts

For today’s featured baby shower, the floral baby shower décor was not difficult to select. This sweet shower was for precious baby Lily. I talked with the mommy-to-be and asked what colors she was doing for the nursery. I wanted to make sure that she could incorporate any of the décor that she wanted to keep into the nursery. Since she was doing pinks and whites for the nursery, I used those colors for the majority of the décor.

The Invitations, Thank You Notes, and Guess The Date Calendar

Designed by Forever Your Prints

Baby Shower INvitations by Forever Your Prints

I had so much fun searching for the perfect invitation! The invitation for a party sets the entire scene, so it is important to make sure it is absolutely stunning! I found so many beautiful invitations on Etsy! I decided to narrow it down to three and let the mommy-to-be choose! She finally decided on this gorgeous design by Forever Your Prints on Etsy!

I also love diaper raffles! When you order the invitations, make sure to also order diaper raffle cards! Include the diaper raffle card in the invitation. If guests would like to participate in the raffle, ask them to bring a pack of diapers to the shower and their name written on the raffle card. As they arrive, collect the diapers and drop all diaper raffle cards in a jar. During the game portion of the shower, draw a raffle winner and award them with a really fun prize! Just remember to make the prize extra special since the guests are bringing an additional gift! I love diaper raffles because guests don’t feel obligated to participate and it is a great way to collect a nice stash of diapers for the mommy and daddy-to-be!

I also ordered thank you notes in the same design! I had a station at the party next to the guest book and I asked the guests to please fill out their address on an envelope. This saves the mommy and daddy-to-be a lot of time and makes thank you notes a breeze! Also, don’t forget to keep track of who gives what during presents! That list will be very helpful when it comes time to send thank you notes! 

Guess The Date Calendar

This adorable shop also makes Guess The Date calendars! For those who are not familiar, a guess the date calendar is for guests to guess what date they think the baby will arrive! I purchased a butterfly stamp with pink ink and had all of the guests guess their date!

The Baby Shower Décor

Baby Shower Paper Flower Decor

I wanted everything to be covered in flowers with a show-stopping backdrop for the mommy-to-be to sit in front of during the shower activities. I found these beautiful paper flower templates on Etsy by Paper Flora. They are SO EASY to make and you can make multiple sizes from the same design. I chose my two favorite designs and purchased stock paper in the colors I wanted for the shower.

Paper Flower Baby Shower Decor

I made multiple sizes so that I could create a floral arch on the wall and I used fake leaves that I had left over from a Tropical Themed Baby Shower that I hosted to add a pop of green to the flowers! I purchased the Hangman Products PCR5 Poster & Craft Tape, 5′, Roll, White from Amazon to hold the flowers to the wall and it worked beautifully! This is the same tape I like to use when I make a balloon arch!

Floral DIY Wooden Block Letters

I purchased these adorable wooden block letters from Hobby Lobby and painted them white. I then glued small fake flowers to the bottom and up the sides of the letters. I LOVED how they turned out and so did the mommy-to-be! She has these in sweet baby Lily’s nursery now! 

DIY Floral Craft Letter Initial

I really love monograms and initials, so I purchased this giant cardboard L from Hobby Lobby and stuck fake flowers all over the L. I cut the flower off of the stem and just left a small part of the stem to stab into the cardboard. It worked perfectly and looked so pretty!

Shopping Tip: #HobbyLobby marks all of their flowers 50% off every other week! #DIY Click To Tweet

Floral Balloon String

I LOVE these gorgeous 36” balloons! They make such a statement when you walk in the room! For this floral themed baby shower, I decided to add flowers to the balloon string to give it a little extra glam! I took small flowers and leaves and hot glued them down a balloon string. The morning of the shower, I tied the floral string around the balloon and cut the actual balloon string off of the balloon. It turned out so cute and the shower guests were asking where I bought it! Purchase your own pack of 36″ Balloons on Amazon! 

Pro Tip: Party supply stores charge as much as $15 to inflate a 36” balloon with helium.… Click To Tweet

Hot Air Balloon Floral Centerpiece

I wanted something extra special for the floral centerpieces on the buffet table! I saw this adorable hot air balloon flower box craft on Pinterest and I had to make it! It was so easy and looked amazing on the table! Here is what I used to make it:

Diaper Cake

Diaper Cake Floral Baby Shower

While diaper cakes don’t sound at all appealing, they make for fabulous baby shower décor and it is a great hidden gift for mom and dad! For this diaper cake, I decided to go with a black and white striped fabric and then use giant pink peonies to make it pop! Check out my blog on how to make a diaper cake here!

Pro Tip: Purchase diapers that are larger in size for the diaper cake. Most people purchase… Click To Tweet

Mommy Milestone Wine Crate

Mommy Milestone Custom Wine Label Basket

I always love to include this with my gift! While all of the gifts are to the mom and dad, they are really for baby! This is a creative and fun gift that mom and dad can enjoy together to celebrate after the baby is born! I found these adorable Mommy Milestone custom wine labels on Etsy by Lush Label! Each wine label celebrates a different occasion after baby is born and includes a cute poem! You can have the babies name on the bottom to make it extra special! Check out my blog post on how to make a mommy milestone wine basket here!

Hospital Door Hanger Wreath

Floral Hospital Door Hanger

Help mom and dad welcome baby into the world with a beautiful hospital door hanger! This is a great way to show off sweet baby’s name and their official birthday as the loved ones visit the hospital! This also looks amazing at the shower! Check out my blog post on how to make a hospital door hanger!

Baby Shower Guest Book


 Baby Shower Guest Book: Guess How Much I Love You

Special moments like a baby shower go by so quickly! I always like to include a guest book for mom and dad to look over and remember their sweet friends and family who showered them with love and support. Instead of a blank book that may end up stuffed on a shelf, I like to buy a favorite children’s book for the guests to sign and leave sweet messages. Each time mom and dad read this to sweet baby, they are reminded of the love and support from their friends and family! As baby gets older, they will be able to read the sweet messages of love and support and know how much they were loved before they were even born!

Baby Shower Games

Munchkin Bristle Bottle Brush
I love playing baby shower games where my game supplies can also act as a gift for the mommy and daddy-to-be! The Price Is Right is SO much fun and mom and dad end up with a lot of necessary items for baby! I pick out 10 necessity items listed on their registry for the game. I give each guest a piece of paper with each item numbered. I introduce each item to the guests reading them all of the necessary information. For example, if one of the items were a baby bottle cleaning brush, I would include that this particular brush is BPA free, has a suction cup base and a flexible neck for easy cleaning. Each guest would then write down their estimated guess of the price of that item. Once I go through each item, each guests adds up the total of all items and the guest with the closest estimated total to the actual total of all 10 items wins! Mom and dad take home all of the items for the game and the guest leaves with a fun prize! Target gift cards are always a popular prize!

Baby Shower Food

Baby Shower Food

For this shower I went with a brunch theme. We had a donut cake, fruit tray, veggie tray cheese, crackers, coffee cake, quiche, Danish, and pigs in a blanket! For the beverage station, I had a coffee bar, juice bar, hot tea, iced tea, and water. There were very few leftovers!

Oh how I love sweet babies! I am not a mommy yet, but I absolutely LOVE all of the babies in my life. One of my favorite types of parties to plan is a baby shower.

TuTu Cute

Tutu Baby Door Hanger

This tutu themed baby door hanger was so fun and SO easy to make! I had never made a tutu before, so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. I read this tutorial to give me an idea on how to get started. Once I learned how to tie the tulle around the wreath, it was super easy from there! I just purchased a foam wreath from hobby lobby and covered it with fabric. It turned out tutu cute!


Floral Hospital Door Hanger

Oh I just love this wreath so much! I will share my full blog post from this shower soon, but as you may have guessed from the wreath, this shower was a floral theme. It was oh so easy to make and it really didn’t cost as much as you might think! I purchased all of my supplies from Hobby Lobby. They put their flowers half off every other week and I just used my 40% off coupon for my supplies that weren’t on sale.

I became obsessed with pineapples and flamingos after planning this tropical themed baby shower! This wreath was so fun to make and I absolutely loved the pineapple monogram from Build A Cross!

How to Host the Best Tropical Themed Baby Shower

When the sweet mommy-to-be first said that she wanted a Tropical themed baby shower, I knew I was out of my element. Aside from a Hawaiian luau before my high-school graduation, I had not come close to attempting a tropical themed party! She decided she wanted the focus to be flamingos and pineapples, so I at least could narrow down the focus of my decor! It also helped that her shower was in April and every store buyer had decided that they also loved pineapples and flamingos. I started searching Pinterest for inspiration, as we all do at some point during the day, and I started to get an idea of what I wanted to do. Here are my top tips for hosting a tropical baby shower!

The biggest focal point of the baby shower decor was definitely the tropical balloon arch! This was so much fun to make and was a huge hit! Find everything you need and how to make the balloon arch here!

Tropical Themed Baby Shower

The Centerpiece! I wanted to make décor for the shower that would also act as a gift. The diaper cake was actually very easy to make and it looked wonderful as the centerpiece for the sign-in table! It was also stuffed with 96 diapers and topped with an adorable stuffed flamingo. Learn how to make this diaper cake here!

DIY Tropical Diaper Cake

I absolutely LOVE the custom door wreaths for the hospital door to welcome visitors to meet the sweet new baby! They look great at the shower and even better on the hospital door! They are also super easy to make. Check out my how to build a tropical themed diaper wreath here!

Tropical Themed Hospital Door Hanger

One of the other hostesses was handling the food and I knew it would be absolutely delicious and adorable! I wanted the plates, napkins, cups, and straws to really make a statement and fit our adorable theme. I really hit the jackpot with Etsy, Amazon, and Target!

Napkins: I found these adorable pineapple napkins on Amazon for $12 for as package of 20! The pink Flamingo napkins came from the Target dollar section and the green and pink flamingo napkins came from Papyrus.

Plates: I purchased the pink plates from Hobby Lobby and found the adorable palm plates from SPSweet Creations on Etsy!

Pineapples and Flamingos Party Decor

Cups and Straws: I am still obsessing over these flamingo stork straws! They are just too perfect! I found these at Paper Trail on Etsy! I bought the pineapple cups from TipTopSupply4U on Etsy!

Pineapple Party Cups

The mommy-to-be got her very own gold pineapple tumbler! I found this at Target and for all of my essential oil lovers, the inside is stainless steel, so you can add your favorite oils to your beverage! I thought this really put the whole tropical theme over the top!

Pineapple Baby Shower Decor

I wanted to really pull in the tropical theme with the serving platters, so I found these tropical leaves from Oriental Trading Company to act as placemats under the serving trays. I paid only $8.99 for 12!

Party Shower Food

I wanted pineapples incorporated in as many areas as possible! I found some beautiful pineapple vases, but they were crazy expensive! So instead, I cut out a pineapple and spray painted it gold! It really did look lovely with these tropical flowers! I wish I could tell you that I was able to use the pineapple after I cut it out, but it was more like pineapple pulp when I was finished with it. Maybe it will be edible the next time I try to make a vase.

Pineapple Flower Vase

I taped palm leaves to the strings of these 36” balloons to help tie in the Tropical theme. Iove these balloons, but they can be SO expensive! Even after you purchase the balloon, you still have to pay for the helium and most party places charge $15 per balloon! That is just insane! I found a pack of 10 on Amazon for only $13.99! I took them to Kroger’s floral department and the inflated them with helium for only $5 each! I was thrilled! They really make the perfect statement piece!

Flamingos and Pineapples Baby Shower

One of my favorite things about Etsy is how you can customize so many things! I messaged the shop that designed the shower invitations and asked if they could make this guess the date sign to match the invitations and they, of course, were happy create a custom listing! I had it printed at a FedEx Office and purchased a frame at Michaels. This example is an 11×14. I also bought a pineapple stamp from Hobby Lobby and had the guests stamp and initial the day they thought the mommy-to-be would go into labor. This was a great activity and looked great with the décor! Then, the mommy-to-be can display it in the baby’s nursery or use the frame for a different picture.

Baby Shower Guess The Date Print

I love the idea of a guestbook, but if we are being totally honest, most guest books just end up on a bookshelf collecting dust. I found this sweet children’s book on Amazon about Flamingos and decided this would be the perfect guest book. Each guest wrote the baby a sweet note in the book and it looked fantastic on the sign-in table!

Baby Shower Guest Book Idea

One of our closest friends gave us a wine basket for our wedding gift. Each wine bottle represented a milestone we would reach together in our first year of marriage. We are STILL enjoying this beautiful gift. I saw the same idea on Etsy from Lush Label, but for Mommy Milestones. It looked amazing on the gift table and it was a huge hit with the mommy and daddy-to-be. See the full supply list here!

Mommy Milestone Tropical Themed Baby Shower Gift

The mommy-to-be found these delicious sand dollar cookies online and thought they would make the perfect favors! I found this recipe from Mamma Miss and they turned out great! I wrapped two in cellophane and tied it with a bow and these adorable favor tags from Peekaboo Chew Prints! I also had these printed at FedEx Office on a heavy cardstock.

Tropical Themed Balloon Arch for a Baby Girl Shower by The Sassy Southern

Tropical Balloon Arch

When I started planning the overall design for a tropical themed baby shower I was co-hosting, I really wanted a big focal point that guests saw the second they walked through the door. As I was searching Pinterest for inspiration, as we all do at some point during the day, I saw a pin from 100 Layer Cake-Let! They shared a balloon arch that they created for a flamingo themed birthday party. I was instantly obsessed. I saw that they used a balloon arch tutorial from The House That Lars Built. I watched the tutorial twice and felt that I could totally make this happen. I showed it to my husband and let him know that I need him to be my engineer for this project. Being the sweetest husband in the world, he jumped on board.

Since the party was held at the mommy-to-be’s home, I needed to make sure we weren’t going to destroy her wall! Painting her dining room wall was the last project she needed to handle. Since we didn’t really know what we were doing, we built the arch the night before and just prayed that it would stay! After about 2 1/2 hours of the hubs patiently standing on a ladder while listing to my directions, we finished our balloon arch. For our first, try, we were pretty happy with the results! The supply recommendations from The House That Lars Built was super helpful. Here are the materials that we used:

Baby Shower Balloon Arch

Hangman Products PCR5 Poster & Craft Tape, 5′, Roll, White – We bought this from Amazon for just $7.16. It is amazing! This was all that we used to stick the balloons and the balloon strip to the wall. Not only did it stay up for the shower, it stayed up for 7 DAYS and didn’t take any paint off of the wall! I also have more than half of the roll left to use on my next project.

Glue Dots Craft Roll, Contains 200 ( .5 Inch) Adhesive Craft Dots – We bought these from Amazon as on add-on to my larger order. However, you can find these at Walmart. We paid $3.60 for this as an Amazon add-on. These came in handy for sticking the smaller balloons on top of the larger balloons. We also used these to stick help the plants stay on the balloons.

Balloon Arch Decorating Strip 50ft – I honestly don’t know how we would have done this without the balloon arch decorating strip! It is extremely easy to work with and made designing the shape and final design extremely easy. We purchased from Party City for $9.99 and have a lot left over for our next project!

Balloons – I wanted very specific colors, so I ordered most of my balloons from Amazon. However, I did buy white and pink balloons from Hobby Lobby. I purchased the coral and peach colored balloons from Amazon.

Silk Palm Leaves – I purchased the silk palm leaves from Oriental Trading Company and I bought the smaller tropical leaves in a bunch at Hobby Lobby. Remember, they put their floral 50% off every other week!

36” Giant Latex Balloons in Pink & White – I LOVE the giant 36” balloons but they are so expensive! I found a pack of 10 for only $13.99 on Amazon! I didn’t need 20 36” balloons for this baby shower, but I knew I would use them for future parties and events. I used one of these at the bottom of the arch on each side to have a nice base.

Electric Balloon Pump – Knowing that he would have the very special job of blowing up the balloons, my husband requested this particular piece of equipment and it was BEYOND worth it. We bought it for $24.99 at Party City. He was able to inflate 100 balloons in 40 minutes. He could still breath and his hands weren’t even tired. This was a fantastic investment.

This balloon arch was a huge hit at the baby shower and really tied the whole room together! It took us 3 hours and 10 minutes to inflate the balloons and put up the arch. We spent around $70 on supplies and we still have 18 of the 36” balloons, the electric balloon pump, balloon arch decorating strip, AND the craft tape and glue dots left over. These will come in handy for the next balloon arch!

DIY Tropical Themed Hospital Door Hanger

The hospital door hanger is one of my favorite things to incorporate into the décor for a baby shower. It looks great at the shower, but it looks even better on the hospital door when sweet baby finally arrives! For this example, I used a Tropical theme for my inspiration so that it also matched the baby shower décor. Here is what you need to get started!

DIY Hospital Door Hanger

Artificial Flowers. I bought my flowers from Hobby Lobby and Michaels. Hobby Lobby puts all floral 50% off every other week and Michaels is always having sales on different flowers. If you can catch them right before a new season, this is a great time for deals on flowers.

Foam Floral Ring. I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby for $4.99 and then used my 40% off coupon. I did later see them online at Dollar Tree for $1. However, you are required to buy a minimum of 4and you will have to pay for shipping. If you know you will eventually use 4, this is definitely the way to go!

Low-Temp Hot Glue Gun. You can find one at any craft store for under $5.

Ribbon. I purchased my ribbon from Hobby Lobby, but you can find ribbon at any craft store.

Wooden Craft Boards. I purchased a package of 4 from Hobby Lobby for $4.99. I knew I would use them eventually and it gave me extras in case I messed up and I definitely did. You will hear about that in step 1.

Adhesive Letters. For this project, I used these beautiful gold chipboard letter stickers from Hobby Lobby. They are very easy to apply and look fantastic against the pink paint. They are normally $4.99 per box, but they were on sale for $2.99 when I purchased them and they are still on sale!

Wooden Initial. I purchased this adorable pineapple initial from Build-A-Cross. They have SO many options and their customer service is phenomenal! They also work with the Ministry Freedom Challenge, a Faith-Based Drug and Alcohol Discipleship Program. I love knowing that they are giving back to their community with the help of proceeds from their products. If you are looking for a very specific wooden monogram or design, this is the place for you! If you just need a simple letter initial, Hobby Lobby has plenty of options.

Paint Brushes. I like to use the foam paint brushes. Michaels carries a set of multiple sizes in their dollar section bins at the front of the store. I purchased this set of 25 foam paint brushes for $5.

Paint. I used bottles of acrylic paint from Hobby Lobby.

Fishing Wire. I will be totally honest here. I might have borrowed mine from my brother and just never gave it back. Sorry, Face. (I call my brother Face.) You can find fishing wire at Walmart or any hobby store.

Wire Cutter.


Step 1: Paint Your Wooden Boards and Initial

I found this adorable pineapple initial from Build-A-Cross. They have SO many options and designs. I would highly recommend checking out their site. Before I ordered the initial, I measured the length of my foam ring to make sure I selected the right size. Paint the initial and the boards you will use to display the name, weight, length, date, and time. I would recommend testing the paint colors you are going to use on the back of one of the boards to make sure they don’t clash with any of the flowers. I had this issue for this example and had to start over with a new board. While you wait for the boards and the initial to dry, move on to step 2!

Step 2: Place your flowers!

Tropical Hospital Door Hanger

DIY Floral Hospital Door Hanger

Have your hot glue gun on and ready to go. Using the wire cutter, cut the flowers from the stems leaving just enough stem to push into the foam ring. I prefer using several large flowers with smaller flowers as fillers. As you place the flowers, you can easily pull the flowers out and place them in a different spot to finalize the design. I incorporated leaves from the stems throughout to give pops of green. This also went with the tropical theme. If you notice any of the flowers not staying in place, just put a little dab of the hot glue in the hole and then stick the flower back in and hold in place for 10 seconds. Once you have all flowers and leaves in place, hold the wreath upside down just to make sure none of the flowers fall out.

Step 3: Date, Time, Weight, and Length

Now that your wooden boards are dry, add the adhesive letters for the time, date, weight, and length. You can also change this to pounds and inches if you prefer. You, of course, won’t know any of this information while you are making the door hanger, so make sure you leave enough room for mommy and daddy to add this information at the hospital. If they have already picked a name, you can add that to the first board. For this example, the mommy and daddy had not decided on the name, so I provided them with a full set of the adhesive stickers to add the name later.

Step 4: Put It All Together!

Tropical Themed Hospital Door Hanger

Now that all of your pieces are done, it is time to put it all together. Take the wooden initial and use fishing wire to attach it to the inside of the ring. I wrapped one piece of fishing wire around the top of the pineapple and looped in around the top part of the wreath. I tied four knots in the fishing wire to make sure it stayed. Repeat this step on your initial at the bottom of the wreath. Once the wooden initial is secure, cut two pieces of ribbon to attach at the bottom of the wreath. These pieces need to be the same length. Using the hot glue gun, attach both pieces of ribbon to the back of the wreath. Before you glue the ribbon, measure the length between the two pieces to make sure you are leaving enough space for the length of the wooden boards. Once both pieces of ribbon are secured on the back of the wreath, glue the wooden board pieces on the ribbon. If there is any additional ribbon hanging below the last board, trim that off with scissors. Cut one more piece of ribbon to use for the top part of the wreath. This will help you store the wreath leading up to the shower and can help it hang from the door hanger if needed. Just make sure you cut enough to make a full bow. For this example, the door hanger allowed us to hang the wreath without the ribbon at the top.

Mommy Milestones | Wine Bottle Baby Shower Gift

How To Make a Mommy Milestone Wine Crate Basket

I know what you are thinking, wine bottles for a baby shower gift? How cruel is that? Who gives a gift to the mommy-to-be that she would love to enjoy now, but can’t have for months? But don’t worry, this is one gift that the mommy-to-be won’t mind waiting for! I first saw this when one of my bridesmaids and her husband gave this to my husband and me for our wedding gift. They gave us 10 different wine bottles all labeled for different “firsts” for our marriage. One was for our first holiday, another for our first dinner party, and one for our first anniversary. It was so creative and it really is the gift that keeps on giving! We still have three bottles left to enjoy! I loved this idea so much, that I decided to make this part of the gift for the Tropical themed baby shower I was co-hosting. As I started putting it together, I realized that this would look great as part of the shower décor! This was really fun and it was super easy to make. Here is what you need to get started:

Wooden crate. I bought the wooden crate pictured from Michaels and painted it white. The price of the crate was $10, but I was able to use a 20% off coupon from Michaels.

6 Bottles of Wine. Any bottle of wine will work! I chose a mixture of reds and whites.

Wine Labels from Lush Label. I found these adorable wine labels with poems on Etsy for Mommy Milestones. The poems are sweet and funny and are themed around first experiences after the baby is born. The labels pictured came from Lush Label on Etsy and included six labels: First Mommy Meltdown, Mommy’s First Full Night Sleep, First Mom & Dad Date Night, Mommy Fits in Her Favorite Pants, The First Shopping Temper Tantrum, and Mommy’s First Girls’ Night Out! This shop has multiple designs and themes and they are so easy to apply to your favorite bottles of wine! You can also add these to whiskey bottles for a groomsman gift or champagne bottles for “popping” the question to your bridesmaids!

Flowers. I bought my flowers from Hobby Lobby and Michaels. Hobby Lobby puts all floral 50% off every other week and Michaels is always having sales on different flowers. If you can catch them right before a new season, this is a great time for deals on flowers.

Hot Glue Gun. I would recommend a low temp hot glue gun. I bought mine from Hobby Lobby, but you can find one at any craft store.

Decorative Grass. I happened to make this wine crate around Easter, so I found the Easter grass at Target! However, if you are making this any other time of year, Party City has multiple colors to choose from. For this wine crate, I used seven 2 oz. bags.

Step 1: Applying the wine labels!

Baby Shower Gift Mommy Milestones

The first thing you need to do is get the original wine label off of the wine bottle. The easiest way to do this is to fill your sink with room temperature water and place the bottles in the water. I let mine stay in the water for about 30 minutes and then peel the labels off. If any of the adhesive from the label stays on the bottle, just use a wet paper towel and rub the adhesive off of the bottle. If you don’t have a sink stopper, a large mixing bowl or beverage tin will work as well! Once the labels are off and you have dried the wine bottle completely, place the labels on the wine bottles. I found that it was easiest to apply the labels from left to right. This helped me keep the label from having bubbles once it was applied.

Step 2: Decorating the wine crate!

Mommy Milestone Tropical Themed Baby Shower Gift

Once your wine bottles are ready to go, it is time to start decorating your wine crate! This particular wine crate was for a Tropical themed baby shower, but you can easily change the look to fit your theme. Use the glue gun to secure the flowers on leaves on the front of the crate. Once the glue has dried, fill the crate with the decorative grass and arrange your wine bottles. This looks great on the gift table or as a centerpiece for the baby shower. Your mommy-to-be will love you for this gift!
