How to Make a Yarn Pom Pom Flowers video

Happy Fall! There’s nothing quite like that first crisp, autumn breeze tickling your nose. The leaves start to change, the vibrant oranges, reds, and golds come out to play, and the chilly weather prompts us to break out our sweaters. There are bonfires, hayrides, and pumpkin everything!

The best part of welcoming the fall season is decorating your house to match – at least, in my opinion! The same earthy hues on the trees and scattered on the ground are the best inspiration for décor and DIY projects. And these projects don’t have to be complicated, either! Even the most beginner crafter can make their own fall décor with just a few basic items around the house.

This video shows you how to make one of the easiest DIY fall décor crafts: yarn pom pom flowers! Just grab your scissors, your favorite fall-themed color yarn, and a comb for some fabulous fluffing – that’s it! Within minutes, you’ll have bouquets of fluffy flowers to sprinkle through your living space. And the best part? They’re inexpensive enough that you can make new ones every year without breaking the bank, or you can save them for the next fall season!

Yarn flowers are a great addition to your home’s décor, but they also make fantastic decorations for events! Bouquets of yarn flowers make a cute and cost-effective table centerpiece – just place them in a mason jar or vase and add a decorative ribbon! Don’t stop there, though. These flowers’ blooms are yarn pom-poms that can add a serious pop of color and dimension to tables, or you can string them all together for some easy (and cheap) garland! Just choose colors of yarn that match your event’s theme and go to town!

Whether you use this how-to for home décor or events, yarn flowers are a simple way to brighten any space.

Rustic Sunflower Baby Shower

Sunflower Princess Centerpiece

A new baby is a bright ray of sunshine in the lives of their parents and family. And this sunflower baby shower took that sentiment to heart! Event Planner, Aaliya of Lacedbyliyah (FB), let her style shine bright and transformed the venue with plenty of beautiful blooms.

The invitations set the baby shower tone right from the get-go: dazzling sunflowers complemented by rustic wood for a sweet, country-chic vibe. The welcoming sign uses the same graphic, and Aaliya manages to match the venue’s wood floors almost perfectly! Coincidence? I think not!

The guests of honor, Baby Kalanee’s parents, get to enjoy seating fit for glamorous garden royalty. An eye-catching gold Payette sequined tablecloth covers their table, set with sunflower-yellow plates and sweet pictures of the growing family. The backdrop welcoming Baby Kalanee is framed with more Payette sequined curtains and deep green curtains that perfectly complement the custom backdrop. Balloon bunches add great dimension and are an excellent touch for the focal point of the room!

“Adorable” isn’t a strong enough word to describe the table centerpieces! Embroidery hoops are repurposed and dressed up with vines of ivy, clusters of sunflowers, and the sweetest image of the Sunflower Princess herself. I absolutely love that the place settings are elevated with textured, metallic gold charger plates, too! Even though the guests are eating off of disposable plates, the settings look elegant and refined. And do you see the gold pacifier napkin rings? It doesn’t get much cuter than that.

There’s a beautiful variety of colors added to the room, as well. Some guest tables have green tablecloths, some have yellow or brown, but they are all tied together with Payette sequin table runners! Which, by the way, beautifully matches the sequined tablecloths on the food and dessert tables.

The details for this rustic sunflower baby shower are spot-on, and it’s the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of a beautiful sunflower-summer baby girl!

Drivers, Start your Engines! “Racing By” Baby Shower

Racing By Drive-Through Baby Shower tablescape

“Racing By” Drive-Through Baby Shower by EXTRAordinary Things by Arielle | IG: extraordinarybyarielle

In the current pandemic, event planners and hosts have to get creative with their party preparations. One trend that has sped into the spotlight is drive-by showers, where guests drive by the host’s home to drop off gifts and pick up favors quickly. It’s all the same fun and charisma of a typical shower, with no close contact!

Arielle, an event stylist, fully embraced this concept and gave one couple the ultimate racing-themed baby shower to celebrate the upcoming birth of their little one! The décor was equal parts cute, creative, and conscious of everyone’s safety.

A huge welcome banner (I mean, huge) and archway welcomes the guests as they roll up to the starting line of the shower. Once they get the green light, guests come to the first Pit Stop – the Gift Compound. They can drop off their gifts with minimal contact but still see the smiling faces of the Mom and Dad of the Hour. Super cute and a perfect concept for the theme!

After the next leg of the race, guests come to the second Pit Stop – the Refueling Station! At this stop, guests receive a boxed lunch and delicious cupcake to thank them for attending. And all of it is packaged to-go in checkered-flag boxes that drive the racing theme home.

In between the two pit stops is the focal point of the whole event – the Finish Line. A “roadway” draws your eye up to the top of the driveway, transformed into a winner’s circle for the growing family. It’s complete with checkered flag patterns galore, a balloon tower stoplight, thrones for Mom and Dad, and an adorable little hot rod for their two little ones. And let’s not forget the outfit that Mama is wearing! She looks fantastic rocking that racing suit.

Take a victory lap, Arielle; this drive-by racing baby shower brings all race fans to their feet!

100th Day Oink Oink Piggy Theme Celebration

100th Day Oink Oink Piggy Theme Celebration by Ms. Laine Events

There are lots of milestones to celebrate as a baby grows up. The six-months-old mark, first solid foods, first steps, first teeth…but have you ever considered throwing a 100 Days Old celebration? After seeing this one, decorated by Ms. Laine Events, you will want to!

The theme for this party is little piglets – an adorable choice for a newborn baby – and oh, did Ms. Laine bring the piggies! The custom graphic saying “Brayden is 100 days old” features the cutest little pig you ever did see, and makes the perfect focal point for the room. The chevron design on the graphic is modern yet cute enough to fit right in with the theme, and the light blue color scheme makes a stunning contrast against the sweet, pink piglets.

One of the biggest head-turners is the mylar balloons shaped like pigs. How adorable are they? Besides being the most lovable balloons outside of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the pig balloons make excellent fillers to fluff and fill any empty space throughout the room. The guests are guaranteed to coo over them almost as much as the baby!

Guests were directed to the room at the venue with a clever easel, sporting a sign that has the same cute piggy from the custom graphic inside. More pig balloons surrounded the easel, grabbing guests’ attention and giving an adorable sneak preview of the décor in the party space! As a final touch, balloons of light blue and pig pink add some flair and tie the whole display together.

One of the things I love the most about the decorations is the little touches of rustic charm throughout the space. Galvanized milk cans are filled with faux wildflowers and greenery, with just a bit of faux hay to elevate the country charisma. It’s not overdone, though! There’s just enough to add to the farmhouse atmosphere without detracting from the central theme of the party.

The treats and sweets for the party are worth celebrating themselves. Custard pies with “pigs on a stick” decorations are sure to make guests squeal with delight. And the fluffy buttercream icing on the cupcakes is tempting enough for anyone to burrow their nose in!

Adorable “piggy pops,” pigs on a stick, are ready to go for guests to enjoy at the party or on their way out the door. If you look closely, you can see that each piggy pop has a different expression on its face. Some even dressed for the occasion and have a party hat! As if things couldn’t get any cuter, little pig-shaped donuts hang on an upscale pegboard to be plucked from their perches as the guests leave. These little pigs also have different expressions on their faces, the same as the piggy pops. A tiny detail that brings all the elements together!

All in all, baby’s barnyard bash is a precious, yet simple theme to make your 100-days-old party (or any age, for that matter!) a huge success. All thanks to the inspiration from Ms. Lain’s Events!

Words from the planner: Oink Oink again!! Another cute piggy theme that we just styled recently. Thanks to Brayden’s mummy for your trust & support. We hope everyone had a great time!

How to Host a Baby Shower During Coronavirus

The coronavirus has altered the state of the world and changed the way our day-to-day lives work. From new social distancing norms to mandated stay-at-home orders urging isolation for months, this is a situation that feels very much like time has stopped. But the fact is, life is still going on, and people are still experiencing important milestones in their lives, such as new babies on the way, weddings, anniversaries, etc.

We don’t know how long the world itself will be at a standstill like this, and celebrating these big milestones in our lives that continue on no matter what, is significant. There are ways to do this while still being safe and healthy during this pandemic, so if you’ve got a little miracle on the way, never fear! Below, check out the amazing ways you can still celebrate a baby shower with your loved ones.

Baby Shower Options during COVID-19

Virtual Baby Shower

We are so lucky to be in a time of video messaging in the forms of apps like Zoom, Skype, and FaceTime. There are one of two ways that you might choose to celebrate, but regardless of which you go with, send out invitations! We have plenty of free instant download digital invitations in variety of designs. Just because everyone can be together doesn’t mean you can’t make this celebration feel like a true one. Adorable invitations are a way to get into the spirit of celebrating the upcoming bundle of joy.

Livestream:

If you’re looking for something a little more low key and quiet, you can settle in your baby’s nursery with the gifts your loved ones have sent to you by post. Then, have all the guests hop on a conference video call through a shared app so that everyone can experience watching you open your gifts, and they can see the nursery you’ve created! If you don’t have access to Zoom, you can even live stream on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat. This is convenient and easy for everyone, no matter what devices they’re on.

Zoom Zoom:

But, if you want to go all out like you would if you could be together with your party guests, you can do that, too! For this, you’ll need a video conferencing app (such as Zoom, as mentioned) so that you and all of your loved ones can share the screen together. For this type of baby shower celebration, give info to your guests in the invitation beforehand to be prepared to play whatever games you’ve decided on. You might even choose to send baby shower packets to your guests, which can include game materials and baby shower favors. You can even include ingredients to simple recipes so that every guest can enjoy the same baby shower treats that they themselves easily whip up! Things like minimal ingredient cookies and muffins are ideal for this.

Virtual Baby Shower Games

Some easy and fun games to play remotely with each other are Baby Bingo, Guess That Celebrity Baby, Who knows mommy best, and Would She Rather. I love printable activities because it is super easy to send guests digital versions of these. Guests can print it out at home or if they don’t have a printer, they’ll just need a paper and a pen to write down the answers ready to share with the rest of the guests. To make it more interactive, you can personalize the Guess That Celebrity Baby Game to include photos of the guest! You’ll need to get the guests to send their baby photo to you, yes, it may sound like a lot of work, but trust me it will be worth the effort!



There are other virtual baby shower games you can purchase online. One great shop is ThinkGames, where you can find all sorts of virtual games using powerpoint. Some games are Battle Trivia, and Jeopardy game. The battle trivia has up to 10 rounds, but you can skip or delete rounds you don’t want to use as they are very customizable!

Drive-by Baby Shower!

Like the Virtual baby showers, Drive-by Baby Showers are the new take on traditional showers. They are also known as a Baby Shower Parade, Curb-side Baby Shower or Drive Thru Baby Shower.

Drive-by Baby Shower is an option that would work well if your close friends and families live in the same city. They would also need a car of their own as carpooling with friends that we are so used to would not be possible with social distancing in place. Drive-by baby shower won’t replace the traditional baby showers, but it is certainly fun and definitely won’t be an event to forget!

What is Drive-by Baby Shower?

Drive-by Baby Shower is where the guests drive by the Parents-to-be’s home and celebrate them with honking, cheers and gifts. Preferably, you’d want to organize the time well so that there’ll be a line of cars outside, but if you are inviting over 30 guests, you’d want to make sure you set the time frame appropriately so that the road would not be totally blocked, as the last thing you’d want is complaints from the neighbors.

Hosting a drive-by baby shower might seem a little daunting, definitely a new challenge for you as no one has planned for one before nor been invited to it. Don’t worry, it is not as hard as you might think, a lot of the hassles are actually taken away when you compare it to the traditional or virtual baby showers.

Drive-by Baby Shower Invitation

For invitations, you could send a group chat or prepare a digital invitation to email or you can still send out paper invites! The main details would include the date and a 30 minutes time frame for when the guests are to drive by. If you are inviting more than 30 guests, you may want to extend the time frame to an hour. Rsvp won’t be necessary but if gifts are planned, be sure to add the registry details. You may want to take this opportunity to mention if the gifts are to be mailed or dropped off from a safe distance. 

Wording for Drive-by Baby Shower Invitation

👉  “It’a a Drive by Baby Shower to honor xxxxxx
Since we can’t be together to celebrate today, let’ shower the family in a different way. Drive by to show your love and support. follow the signs to enjoy curbside treats, favors and a card/gift drop.”

👉  “Beep, honk, shout & wave! It’s a drive by baby shower honoring parents-to-be xxxxx. Since we can’t be together today, let’s shower the family in a different way. Beep, honk, shout, and wave. It’s a drive by baby shower parade!”

Decorating for Drive-by Baby Shower

You can still decorate for the event, but it does not need to be elaborate. You can keep the decorations minimal with balloons or a large poster backdrop, a gift table by the curb, and comfortable chairs for the parents-to-be with their favorite music playing in the background. This would set the mood perfectly. Having a game just as the guests drop off their gift might also be fun. A suitable game would be a guessing game such as “guess how many jelly beans are in the jar.” A winner could have a movie voucher mailed to them.

Favors for Drive-by Baby Shower

Although baby shower favors aren’t essential, if parents-to-be are expecting to receive gifts, I think it would be nice to prepare favors for guests to pick up as they drive past.

6 Foot Block Shower!

If your loved ones live nearby and if current restriction allows, why not gather in person with the necessary precautions to celebrate? By keeping things outside, and guests standing at least six feet from one another, you can all still be together and party for the baby on the way! You can prepare goody bags with treats, games, and favors prior to the event and leave those in a spot in your driveway or yard for guests to pick up separately, yet still enjoy all together! You can do this same method with guests individually dropping off gifts in a certain area. Just remember—this idea for a baby shower is probably only possible if you have plenty of outside space, as the logistics for at least six feet of space would not work indoors.

Simple Drop-Off.

If you’re looking for something ultra-simple for everyone and completely stress-free, for whatever reason, you can hold a simple drop-off and greet. Guests can drop off their gifts at your doorstep and say hello, and you can send them home with premade bags of baby-themed treats and fun favors. Hassle-free, no contact, and your loved ones still get to show up to celebrate you and your new baby.

Ballerina in Paris Party

Ballerina in Paris Baby Shower Tablescape

Party themes aren’t just singularly focused anymore, making for a much more personalized experience for all involved. Recently, party planner Susan Driver put this idea into motion with a “Ballerina in Paris” party full of unforgettable aesthetics. Décor was a marriage of petite pretty and breathtaking exquisiteness all in one, merging pale pinks, delicious aromas of big, fluffy roses, and gorgeous desserts to die for.

Tables were put together to create one long banquet set-up, covered in glittery pink tablecloths. A long bouquet of balloons cascaded down the middle, creating a beautiful centerpiece lined with tiny tea roses, tall crystal chandeliers with twinkling gems, and a bouquet ball of roses tufted with pink tulle. Baby pink tableware and white chairs tied with tulle bows completed the magical set-up.

The entryway to the soiree was fantastical and elegant, with a barrage of balloons, flowers, and two life-sized mannequins—one dressed in a formal gold gown and the other dressed in the perfect ensemble for a world-renowned ballerina.

The dessert table over to the far side of the venue was just as amazing, complete with a white and pink curtained backdrop, topped with a gorgeous floral arrangement. The table itself was decked out with plenty of pink tulle and glitter, and plates of personalized bags and boxes of candies and cookies were laid out for all to enjoy.
