Woodland Baby Banner for Baby Shower

Work is still crazy busy, so I haven't had much time for new projects much less writing posts about them.  It's a good thing I haven't published all my projects from the Baby Shower we hosted way back in January!  ;-)  

Here are some of my previous baby shower related posts:

The Big Day

We had such a fun day!  What do you enjoy most at baby showers?

This simple banner came together so quickly.

The adorable card stock animals and mushrooms were snipped from the leftover invitations.

I also used the same sweet felt woodland babies from  The Centerpiece and threaded both onto raffia.  The white spacers are cotton balls.  

As guests arrived, they were given pretty little shapes of paper and asked to write advice or encouragement to the Mommy-to-Be.

Then they hung their note on the banner with a striped paper clip.

It made for a sweet activity and a cute backdrop!

After the shower, we gathered the notes into a small basket.  All those sentiments are still being cherished by our beautiful guest of honor!

What advice do you like to give new parents?

  1. This is really cute, the little foxes especially. Having personal notes to keep after of well wishers will be a treasured keepsake I am sure.

  2. What a great idea to use the notes as part of the banner!

  3. I get so stressed when I think of entertaining so your tips and ideas are very helpful.

  4. Thanks for attending the #WednesdayAIMLinkParty, I shared your post.

  5. The banner is the cutest! What a great way to involve guests and create a keepsake. :)

  6. These look great thanks for sharing with #pocolo

  7. Aw how cute! Being from the UK I've never been to a baby shower, it's not something we generally do over here. :)
