Baby Shower-- Monkey Style!
I created these fun little centerpieces for my sister's upcoming baby shower. We'll have 6 tables of guests, so I wanted something fun (yet practical) for each table.
I was inspired by Noel Culbertson (Creating Keepsakes top 10 SOY in 2007) who did a monkey themed shower and posted it on her blog a few months ago... wow. Her decor was incredible!
I'm keeping mine simple with these mini-diaper cakes-- I used 5 or 6 newborn diapers for each cake. I wrapped them in Bazzill cardstock, brown satin ribbon, yellow velvet ric rak, and used a paint dabber for the polkadots. I cut bananas (freehand)from Bazzill swiss dot paper (LOVE that stuff).
My monkey head came from a template on the Martha Stewart web site-- I also used Bazzill papers for my monkey faces, and a popsicle stick to hold them up in the diaper roll.
These little guys were a hoot to make!
