April Erhard from April Golightly shares her glitter inspired baby shower.
Hello, I am April from April Golightly, and I am a South Florida fashion and beauty blogger that is pregnant with my first daughter. I have been sharing my pregnancy fashion and experiences with my readers.
The All Things Glitter Baby Shower Invitation from Tiny Prints inspired my baby shower’s glitter theme. The Glitter Baby Shower theme was easy to accomplish with glitter ribbon in four different colors that match the letters on the invitation. The back of the invitation was pink glitter and that inspired me to use pink more than any of the other colors.
First, I made glitter candle holders using glitter ribbon in gold, silver, pink, and purple. I taped the glitter ribbon around the clear glass candle holders with double sided tape. For more details on how to accomplish this baby shower DIY, check out my blog post on Glitter Candle Holders.
Next, I added glitter ribbon to the clear glass vases with pretty petite pink and white roses in them using the same technique I used to add the ribbon to the candle holders. Then, I added some polka dots into the mix as glitter and polka dots are two of my favorite things. The Tiny Prints All Things Glitter Invitation was the start of the inspiration and I finished it with my own little girly polka dot flair.
I used the same vases to hold the cute pink straws that we bought for the party. The pink straws were served in drinks held by pink solo cups with pink polka dot napkins.
I used the Tiny Prints All Things Glitter gift tag to add a custom feel to the baby shower favors. The key to perfect baby shower favors is a mix of practicality and fun! The theme of my baby shower favors was local products and sweetness. All attendees of the baby shower received granola from Laurie’s Pantry, Bliss Sugar flavored sugar packets that I fell in love with on my visit to The Village Stand, ‘It’s a Girl’ Mints from Swoozies, Cuban Coffee Toffee from a Flair For Fudge, and Cao Chocolates. The female attendees received Popband Hair Ties and the male attendees received chocolate cigars.
Tiny Print’s All Things Glitter Invitation was the perfect inspiration for my baby shower. Once I found the perfect invitation on Tiny Prints, the theme for the baby shower came naturally!
