REAL PARTIES: My Little Cupcake

REAL PARTIES: My Little Cupcake

Who wouldn’t love a party centered around cupcakes?!

That’s exactly what Jessica from Party Box Design thought when she created this adorable “My Little Cupcake” baby shower for her friend, featuring personalized paper details, a bright color palette inspired by baby-to-be’s nursery, and gourmet cupcakes, of course!

(Side note: “My Little Cupcake” would also be a cute theme for a 1st Birthday Party!)

Read on for all the details, as told by Jessica

REAL PARTIES: My Little Cupcake

Theme Inspiration:
The mommy to be is putting together the most darling little baby room with the most fabulous colors, so the colors I used for her baby shower were the colors of the baby room. I thought, “she’s baking a little “cupcake” in her belly, so lets go with that theme” (plus cupcakes are just darling)!

Colors:
Chocolate Brown, Raspberry, Pink, Yellow, and hint of Orange

Flowers:
I used whole lemons & lemon slices inside the floral vases to create a yellow base. I LOVE using citrus with flowers! The flowers used here were ranunculas, hydrangeas, and just a touch of hot pink roses (for a small pop of pink).

Signature Cocktail: “Cupcake-tini”

Party Favors:
The party favors followed the theme. Guests could take home the “DIY Cupcakes” bake their own “little cupcake” at home! I made the favor tags, and the baking instructions were on the back of the tags. (More DIY details here.)

I also had some cute personalized water bottle labels made for the shower:

What fresh and fun ideas! Great use of simple lemons and ribbon to create the custom look of the vases– a little bit of creativity can save you a LOT of money without sacrificing an elegant, modern look!

The floral arrangement is so beautiful! Besides a shower and first birthday … I could see this as a theme for a cook/decorate your own cupcake birthday party too.
