I just LOVE the glitter pacifiers, they are so cute and festive. I was wondering if you could please post the vendor information for the pacifiers, and whether they were a DIY or not. I’d love to recreate these beauties for my own baby shower! Thank you so much for your time!

Thanks Breanna! We love using them too (We used them here too: http://blog.hwtm.com/2012/03/operation-shower-a-star-is-born-hollywood-baby-shower-part-1-theme-decor/) We purchased them at Michael’s, you can also buy them at any craft store, and of course we added a DIY element :) We used spray adhesive, then dusted them with glitter, then to seal the glitter use a layer of laquer. Also, just a quick tip, this can make your hands extremely sticky so we recommend wearing gloves. Thanks for asking, good luck crafting and please upload an album after your baby shower- we’d love to see how it all turns out!!

Thank you so so much for getting back to me! It is greatly appreciated! Thank you for the invaluable tips and tricks, I will definitely sport some gloves. Thank you for the crafting luck, I would love to upload an album after the baby shower next month! Your website is amazing, and incredibly inspiring. You helped me create two beautiful baby showers for two of my dearest friends, I cannot thank you enough!

We are using your collection for my baby shower next weekend and I would love to see the DIY for the clouds. I can’t find an article though. Do you know when it will be available? Thanks!

Hi Sheila, I am so sorry we haven’t posted this yet- you know how crazy things can get! We will do our best to get it up as soon as possible, however in the meantime, you can try to recreate these more organic clouds if you’d like: http://blog.hwtm.com/2012/10/retro-rainbow-baby-shower-ideas-part-1/. Basically we cut out a piece of felt resembling the cloud shape we were looking for. Then grab handfuls of batting and form it on top of the felt. We then roughly sewed the batting to the felt. I personally helped make these and I literally have zero sewing experience. They were super easy and FAST, perfect for adding a last minute wow factor. Good luck and Congrats!

I love the fabric you used for the flowers, did you purchase that fabric from michaels?

jenn s. SAYS:

Hi Asia -
That’s fabric is actually a kids sheet set from Target :) It’s Circo brand and was $12.99 for 2 sheets, which was WAY less than you would pay for just a couple yards at a fabric store. I used the flat sheet as the backdrop for the brunch table and cut the fitted sheet up for the flowers, embellishment on some of the elephants, etc. I’m pretty sure they still have the sheet set – I saw it just a couple weeks ago at my local Target. :)
