I just came across this adorable idea for a DIY baby shower gift that I had to share. I'm sure you've all seen a diaper cake. Well... for these "cupcakes", Onesie-style baby bodysuits are folded up and decorated to look like cute little cupcakes.
Since they're homemade, you can get really creative with the colors while creating these for either a boy or girl.
All you'll need to complete the look is a baby bodysuit, one jumbo cupcake wrapper per "cupcake", 1 yard of 1.5 inch ribbon, one red pom-pom for each one and some double-sided tape.
You'll find complete folding and decorating instructions along with a pictorial tutorial, so you just can't mess it up, HERE that will help you create one of the cutest DIY baby gifts I've seen in a long time.
Make a bunch of them using different size bodysuits to give as a gift, or make just one to use to decorate your other gift package.
One of these would be cute in the wishing well... as well. Have fun!
They're so much in love that they can't stand to be apart... not even for a few hours. Why torture them with a female-only bridal shower?
Couples showers are growing in popularity and in my opinion, if planned right, can be a lot more fun than the traditional all-girls party.
In fact, a summer shower can be turned into a backyard bash.
Mixed company, mixed drinks and a mixture of gift and game types makes for a lot of laughs.
So, go ahead and get the guys and gals together using one of our favorite invitations for a couples wedding shower in the summer.

Planning a spring or summer bridal shower? Why not take advantage of the wonderful weather by packing a picnic and heading out into the great outdoors?
A picnic bridal shower just might be the perfect choice!
I can't think of a better way to surprise the bride-to-be. Think about it. You pack everything up ahead of time. Invite her to accompany you to the park or beach and when you arrive, instant shower.
All of the guests appear out of the woodwork, or woods, depending on where you're having the party and the fun begins.
The food is super easy to plan and prepare and the mood will surely be extremely casual.
It's also a great idea for those of you who don't have a big enough space in your home to throw a full-blown party.
Here's a few invites that will help you set the tone when inviting intended guests to an outdoor bridal shower.

A second shower might not always be called for but what happens when the mommy-to-be is having a second child of the opposite gender? Instead of a shower, you can have a sprinkle!
At a "sprinkle" guests wouldn't need to bring big expensive gifts because the family already has most of what they need. Instead, guests could help out by bringing clothing and diapers and some of the other essentials needed like lotions and bottles and other basic baby requirements.
Here's a couple of cute invitations that explain exactly what is being asked for in an adorable way.
The design features a sunny scene with a cute baby sitting in a yellow umbrella and a Mommy-to-be carrying another umbrella that is the appropriate color for the new baby's gender, pink for a girl, and blue for a boy. Of course, it's sprinkling over her head.
Here's what it says:
