Food was kept simple with croissant sandwiches fitting for an afternoon tea. Along with veggies and chips for dipping we served up a variety of beautiful treats. The cupcakes came from our favorite local bakery and were transformed into a cupcake bouquet using lollipop sticks, a flower pot, floral foam, and green decorative cupcake liners. The remaining cupcakes were stacked onto a dessert tower I embellished with layered rose ombre lace. Chocolate cookie sandwiches and jumbo pretzels were dipped into white and dark chocolate then sprinkled with candy pearls.
To house the gorgeous lace and burlap diaper cake, I’m going to show you how to make, I created a new gift table setup. I love the idea of incorporating things like a book request, and headband making station into the event. Guests can leave a little bit of handmade love and literature for the new baby.

Huggies Newborn Diaper Pack
Clear Plastic Hair Ties
Rubber Bands (different sizes)
Roll the diaper starting from the top into a tight cylinder. Place a clear plastic hair tie around the diaper tube in the middle. The wetness indicator, which changes color when wet, is perfectly centered so I placed mine right there. It also gave them a uniformed look.
Huggies Newborn packs come with more than enough diapers to create your diaper cake PLUS a bonus soft sided wipes case (my favorite!) and Huggies Natural Care® Wipes. These packs are available exclusively at Costco.com, and on sale from 9/1-9/24 with $5 off AND free shipping.
- Use a changing pad that doesn’t require a cover or line your pad with a water proof mat.
- Try keeping the changing station in the bathroom near the mirror to keep baby entertained while changing.
- Huggies® Little Snugglers Plus Diapers help keep the mess inside with a pocketed waistband. To keep changes quick and mess free too, place a clean diaper under the dirty one: clean baby, remove the old, replace with the new.
- Live in a multi-story house? Keep a mobile change station stocked with all the diaper change essentials.

This is a lovely baby shower. I always like parties done up in burlap and lace, too! #client
