Goodnight Moon Baby Shower Dessert Table



  • The striped table backdrop is actually a shower curtain from Target!
  • A navy blue linen worked well with the “night time” theme and provided a nice foundation for the table that really made the bright colors pop.
  • I used fishing wire to hang a “cow jumping over the moon” backdrop over the shower curtain. The adorable cow and moon illustrations are by Laura Maples and you can purchase the art file right here at istockphoto.com. Just print and cut them out by hand – you can print as many as you need for the party! Click on the following links to download the coordinating Stars and Ribbon Banner for free.
  • The adorable Goodnight Moon inspired sugar cookies were created by The Cookie Jar and feature several elements from the book: cows, moons, stars, red balloons, “Hush” cookies, and scalloped square cookies adorned with cow print and the striped pattern from the bunny’s PJs. Most of the cookies were displayed on a 3-tier server, but I placed a few of them on a red candy-covered plate front & center on the dessert table. They were too cute not to be front & center. =)
  • Colorful candy & lollipops were displayed in various apothecary jars and vases. The containers were all embellished with themed accent labels and the same ribbon used throughout the sit-down tables & hutch. You can download the decorative labels right here.
  • Yarn balls (also an element the book) were again used as accents throughout the table and really tied everything together. DIY tutorial on the yarn balls coming soon!
  • Mini vanilla cupcakes (purchased at Vons – my local grocery store) were displayed on a cute display stand from The Cupcake Tower. I used Craft Glue Dots to edge the display with matching ribbon & accent labels and designed miniature toppers for the cupcakes. You can download the toppers right here. The top of the cake stand was the perfect place to highlight the theme’s inspiration, so a copy of Goodnight Moon + some yarn balls and crochet needles sat here.
  • We also made some pastry star-topped Cheesecake Shooters using this tutorial from Carrie at Half Baked. I just LOVE these cute little desserts and they are surprisingly easy to make! (A frosting/piping tool makes it super easy to get the cheesecake mixture in “cleanly”. I have the Dessert Decorator Plus by Wilton, which is $15 and you can find it online or at Michaels.) The shooters are displayed in simple glass votive holders that I bought in bulk at Michaels. (only $8 for a pack of 16)
  • Golden and regular Oreo cookies were dunked in red and yellow Candy Melts for another easy (and seriously super yummy!) homemade treat.
  • I also made 2 “faux lamps” (also inspired by the book) using pillar candlestick holders, inexpensive lamp shades from IKEA, and a strand of acrylic beads for the “pull cord”. Craft Glue Dots were used to embellish the lamp shades with ribbon & pom pom trim. DIY tutorial coming soon.
  • Last but not least, the front of the table is adorned with a GOODNIGHT garland featuring individual letters attached to ribbon for hanging. (Download this garland here.) I also stuck one of the paper ribbon banners to the middle of the finished garland for some added detail.

  47. Bonnie says:

    Crate & Barrel has such amazing stuff for the home – especially for entertaining. My favorite so far is the bubble ball tealight holders but with inspiration like this shower, I’d probably go for something like the iron dish holder or more platters/serving pieces. What amazing ideas you have!!!

    I love that you used lamps as decor, so clever! :-)

  49. Sandy says:

It gave me great ideas for a baby party I’m going to throw for my daughter in a couple of months.

    I would use the C&B card to buy some new serving dishes! I need more platters and trays!

  73. Tiffany says:

    Love Goodnight Moon, it is a bedtime favorite. My favorite design element is the “Hush little baby” sign on the cupcake stand – my son loved the part of the book where we said goodnight to the old lady whispering “hush.” (Then we would whisper hush in his ear.)

  74. Winnie says:

    I love love love your ideas for this baby shower! The ‘table beds’ were a super creative idea! It was all wonderful. As for the C&B gift card….I am slowly but surely putting together a ‘fun’ room at our house for our preschool age grandchildren…I am sure there are things I could use to complete this makeover!

  75. Maria says:

    Oh the details are too adorable! I love it
    Oh, and I would use the gift card towards glass whare for dessert tables =)

  76. Annie says:

    I love the “Goodnight Moon” theme and that the tables where clothed as beds, with sheets and a pillow. It added to the overall look and appeal. I also love all the over the moon cow decor. Simply cute for a little one’s celebration. I look at this and can only imagine all the fun events that I can host for family and friends and would use the Crate&Barrel gift certificate to build up my supplies to bring an event to life!

  77. Lenzie says:

    I LOVE the dipped oreos! They incorporate the colors beautifully. I will use that idea for a bridal shower I am throwing!
    The giftcard would be used to add some much needed decor to my bland house. We just moved in and we need some help! Haha

  78. Kristin says:

    Love the specialized sugar cookies and, even though its nothing new and I’ve done it several times myself, I always love printables and labels on things like cups and water bottles! With the holidays coming up you know I would be in C&B checking out their new holiday items!

  79. Kimiko says:

    I really like the cheesecake shots with the star garnish, and the yarn ball lollipops. I LOVE Crate & Barrel! We purchased a nice dish set from there a while ago, but now we want to go back and get the matching bowls…a gift card would be perfect!

  80. Wendy says:

    Love the cheesecake shooters!

  81. Veronica Ardary says:

    The oreos are so simple yet so adorable and I love that. I also like the pastry topped Cheesecake Shooters. Such a cute idea. As for the CB giftcard I’d use that to get some items for my kitchen and master bedroom. Those are the only two rooms left to do in my house.

  82. Deb Franz Currie says:

    My favorite element is actually the little yarn ball on top of the shooter glass embellished with ribbon and fringe. So simple but so clever!

    As awesome as a C&B gift card would be, I honestly want all the glue dots – they make throwing a party so much easier for the non-sewer-don’t own a glue-gunner’s out there, not to mention much more green cause you can reuse your elements over and over.

  83. Elizabeth says:

    Beautiful shower! I would use the crate and barrel gift card to spruce up our house with fall decor!

  84. Katie says:

    The crate and barrel gift card could really help spruce up my master bedroom. It is in serious need of an update!

  85. Amanda says:

    I absolutely love this theme (and the book), but my favorite thing has to be the recurring jumping cow!

  86. Solducky says:

    I just ADORE the yarn balls, especially the “lollipop” ones. They really do bring everything and the whole color scheme together. Also, those cookies are amazing!

  87. Brandy says:

  94. Kimberly says:

    I love the little cheesecake shooters. They look so yummy and I like that the little star garnish ties them in with the theme.

  114. Liz Farrar says:

    Oh gosh… I love C&B AND this party theme! I would probably put the money towards some new wine glasses and a skillet!

  115. Heidi says:

  177. Candace S says:

  178. cati says:

  191. Nang says:

    The details on those cookies are impeccable!

Your ideas are so classical and amazing for little kids too. With the Crate & Barrel gift card I would redo my kitchen dishes, I have all the old stuff from when I got married and I need an upgrade badly.

    Carie Ledbetter

  227. Maysem says:

  242. Diana says:

    I love the idea of using square vases/cubes for lollipops, or a ton of other things I can think of. How fun to fill it with sweets and treats you can enjoy after the party (or during).

  243. Fabulous party! I never get tired of seeing your yarn balls; you always incorporate them in such fun ways.

  244. Nikki says:

    Call me simply simplistic but I love the small detail by adding the colorful balls of yarn. I am currently 7 months pregnant and haven’t held my baby shower yet. I would love to use this theme for my new baby boy! I think a clever way for invitations would be to use those same eye catching colorful balls of yarn. I would have my guests unravel the ball to receive exciting baby shower details and information.

    The Crate & Barrel gift card would come in handy as us new parents could decorate and furnish our son’s nursery.

  245. Shannon says:

    The shower curtain is a fantastic idea!

  246. Ruth Allmart says:

    I love the use of a shower curtain for a backdrop and how you used your china cabinet. This is such a cute theme and you pulled it off so well.

  248. i LOVE the lollipops display, the balls of yarn and especially the lamps!! i would love a lamp like that in my little one’s nursery. maybe i’ll just have to make one! c:

    i could def put the crate & barrel gift card to good use, on multiple things! dishes or a bedside table or picture frames or silverware…there’s so much great stuff at that store i can’t decide!

  249. Lynda says:

    I adore the cow…one of my kids all time favorite stories and this just celebrates the story so much… I would use the gc to pick out the perfect holiday table setting and get busy crafting some fun toppers and napkin accents using Glue Dots of course!!! thank you for the chance to win!

  250. Vanessa says:

    I love the lamps and the cheesecake shooters! Those look SO yummy! If I won the gift certificate, I might save it to buy some xmas ornaments since Crate and Barrel always has great ones but then again…I do need some new wine glasses. Maybe I’ll get the wine glasses so I can enjoy putting up the Christmas tree that much more!

  251. Bree Bruce says:

    I adore the primary colors used in this theme! So often you see pastel and muted colors for kid themes, but the primary colors gives it a childhood feeling that is amazing!

    I’m throwing my sister a baby shower, and the crate&barrel gift card would come in handy to buy all the cute dessert table pieces I’ve been drooling over!

  252. Meg says:

  257. Tiffany says:

    i really like the overall colors used, and how well they bring everything together! The cookies are also very impressive!

  258. Michelle Stabile says:

    this book melts my heart and I love how you incorporated even the little details people forget to notice in the book! My fave is the blueberry star dessert though :)

  259. Holli says:

    I love the Goodnight moon theme and I especially enjoy free printable templates. So I would probably have to say the cupcake picks are my favorite. David and I were married 3 months ago today and now we are 2 months pregnant. We would put the Crate & Barrel gift certificate toward something for the baby. Probably some nice crib bedding.

  260. tameka t says:

    I love a great Dr. Seuss theme!!!!

  294. Regina says:

    I would have never thought of using Goodnight Moon as a theme and its an all time fave book of both my husband and I. This is a baby shower theme I will definitely use when we try for our second child.

  295. Shani Christenson says:

    I’m planning a baby shower for my niece so I would use the gift certificate to buy decorating materials.

  296. Jamee says:

    LOVE this theme! What a great idea to create a book-themed shower. My favorite parts are the homemade lamps, the cupcake toppers (so creative) and the little shooters. Amazing! I’d use the Crate & Barrel gift card to give my home a little personality. My husband and I have lived here for two years, but you’d never know it because we haven’t been able to decorate yet. :) Please pick me! :)
