Flowers and Dots baby shower - FREE printables!

A friend of mine is expecting a little girl in June so this past weekend, some friends and I threw her a baby shower with a "flower and dots" theme.

Her nursery colors are very colorful and bright, so I wanted to incorporate those colors throughout.

I made a banner to hang in the entryway and hung it with clear fishing line.

Friends made the food for the shower. The table was full of fun finger foods: egg salad and chicken salad sandwiches, chips, candy, cupcakes and skewers of angel food cake and strawberries drizzled in chocolate.

For table decorations, I made cute topiaries by covering floral foam with tissue paper. The base of the topiaries was filled with spring colored M and M's.

I also made standing labels for the food.

My favorite part though, was the cupcake toppers that I made using lollipop sticks and ribbon to look like little flowers on top of each cupcake.

I wanted to make something special that could be both a decoration and gift for the mama-to-be, so I decided to make a framed name plaque for the baby, Annabella Rose.

I used Photoshop and Illustrator to design the picture, then I painted a wood frame that I bought at Wal-Mart. It made a cute decoration on the entryway table where people signed the guest book.

We're excited to meet you Annabella!!


Download my free cupcake toppers HERE. I included blank ones as well.

I'll be doing a tutorial later this week to show you how to make your own spring topiary just in time for Mother's Day!

  1. Beautiful shower! I love the decorations and personal touches.

  2. wow, super cute and fun! YOu did an amazing job!

  3. Could you tell me - is it just strawberries & angel food cake drizzled with chocolate on a skewer? These look perfect for a party I'm attending. Thanks!

  4. So fun. Great inspiration! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Adorable. What type of chocolate did you use to drizzle over the strawberry shortcake on a stick?

    1. You can use any melted chocolate chips or chocolate melts really. I think dark chocolate would be really good!

  6. Thanks so much for the idea of skewering the angel food cake and strawberries! I made them last night for a 30th birthday party, and they went over SO well!! I used semi-sweet chocolate chips with a touch of coconut oil. Blogged about them here: Cheers!

  7. Everyone likes strawberries so what would a party be without these fruits? It's great!

  8. Can these be made a say in advance...or will the angel food cake get soggy?
