“Itsy Bitsy Spider” Baby Shower / Kids Party

Itsy Bitsy Spider Baby Shower

Looking for a clever twist on the traditional baby shower OR a non-scary Halloween or birthday party idea for your itty-bittiest party patrons? Check out this Halloween-inspired Itsy Bitsy Spider theme from Elizabeth from Bump Smitten… one of the first printable party collections available in her brand new shop!

This collection stars a cute little spider graphic and a bold black and white palette that makes it easy to tailor this theme to your own celebration… from adding a pop of orange or purple for Halloween parties to bright pink, teal, or gender-neutral yellow for baby-to-be.

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Elizabeth

“As I launch my Bump Smitten Shop on Etsy, I thought it would be fun to start with a Halloween theme. And, of course, ‘Itsy Bitsy Spider’ popped up immediately in my mind. I thought this would be an adorable theme for either a baby shower or kid birthday party. The printable collection includes food labels, bottle wraps, water bottle wraps, chocolate bar wraps, mini spider flags, double-sided paper cones, bunting and cupcake toppers. There also matching invitations and labels available.

Dessert Table Details:
– I spray painted some branches I found on a tree in my neighborhood, black with silver glitter spray paint (from Michael’s).
– I found the pot at Home Depot and sprayed it black. I also filled it with gravel and then topped it with mini marshmallows.
– The little white bags hanging from the tree each have a peppermint patty.
– I found the glittery spiders at Michael’s and placed them throughout the table.
– I bought the old-fashioned cola bottles at World Market

I am offering the complete ‘Itsy Bitsy Spider’ collection in my Etsy Shop for $18. Matching invitations and labels are also available.”

I also would like to know where the spiderweb serving pieces came from. Thanks! Such a cute theme…I think it would be good as a young child Halloween party, too, could always add some pops of orange color.
