French Poodle Baby Shower

We hosted a baby shower this past weekend for a friend of ours. The theme we ran with was French Poodle as inspired from her nursery decorations.

Wow there is a ton of pink/black/white out there these days! Made it so much easier on us.

Get ready to be overloaded with pink and black! These are some of the table centerpiece decorations. Fresh flowers in some glasses, piece of a black feather boa on a square silver tray. Very classy looking. And of course it had to have some of my favorites, daisies.

(The glasses and silver trays were some fabulous Dollar Tree finds.)

Pictures from the table. Just a black table cloth, paper flags strung on some black string on the front of the table, and pink tulle placed around the table.

The metal Eiffel Tower was just found at Hobby Lobby along with the "M" frame.
The cake was just a very simple pink cake and we tied the black/white toile ribbon then the black/white gingham check on top of that. Topped with a bow and some black feathers.
This diaper cake turned out great and is my favorite one we've done so far. We used a 40 count pack of pampers diapers and made 3 tiers. Coordinating toile ribbon, gingham ribbon and pink tulle was tied around it. We used parts of that same black feather boa that was used on the table centerpieces and put it in between the layers. This really dolled it up. And of course a little pink french poodle stuffed toy on top.

Pink tutu which was turned upside down and used as tissue paper in the gift sack. This was very easily made by just tying strips of pink tulle on some ribbon and tying the excess ribbon in a bow.

This large pink bucket was personalized as well and had all sorts of neat little items in it. These are just a few items we had put together inside the bucket. Looked cute all put together and served as a table decoration as well!

This pink/white toile frame was found at Hobby Lobby. We dolled it up with some black feathers, a black bow, and a big rhinestone in the middle.

How totally girly and sassy is that?
Love it!
These were just a few other items that were made. The onesie and cloth diapers (used for burp cloths) were my first attempt at the applique that you see everywhere these days. And of course the piggy bank that was shared in an earlier post.
