I don’t know about you, but I am a little over the whole cake pop craze. What I am not over is super cute center piece ideas. I absolutely LOVE the idea of placing baby socks in center pieces! And if you happen to have the type of baby shower that requires assigned seating; I think they would make super adorable place cards as well.

When it comes to goody bags, skip purchasing the themed ones and decorate the bags yourself! Also, try matching the items inside the bags to the party theme and ensure they are age appropriate for each party-goer. For Example because my children are younger the hostess included Olivia board books in their goody bags.

As adults we often think to have fresh flowers at our parties, why not have them at a party for kids? Especially when you can tie it back to the party theme.

And lastly, I LOVE these custom water bottles. The hostess even provided red and white paper straws!

So, which one of these fabulous party ideas would you like to steal? How would you make it your own?

When it comes to goody bags, skip spending money on the actual bag and decorate inexpensive bags yourself. These mariposas were actually created by slapping paint on little Linden’s feet, which BTW is another great idea from Pinterest. In lieu of cheap dollar store items provide goodies that are actually useful like organic granola bars and travel-sized all natural sunscreen.
