I have a TON of crafty goodness to show you, once I have better photos, and the even actually kicks off. I’ll have links, resources, things to do, to try and definitely not to do – the whole shi-bang!

Above, is my tutorial modified diaper cake, with a crafted and tutorial modified cupcake stand.

Plasticwear? I chose a box of assorted TerraWare pieces, and I had a big box of plastic forks, which I wrapped with napkins I already had on hand (why waste a trip to the store and buy new items?) I then wrapped them with a small length of green ribbon I’ve been using on all of the other projects. I then chose a couple packs of plates from the “Bare” line by Solo.

Cupcakes. Everyones favorite subject! I had searched and blogged about the choices out there that are ‘green’ and super cute. What I finally found and decided on, were super cute flower shaped little girl’s plastic barrettes. What? Yes, barrettes. They look EXACTLY like cupcake picks, but they can be cleaned off, and folded in half, and reused as cupcake picks OR barrettes! Photos to come.

I also then printed out fun facts about babies and glued them onto the white backs of the rest of the coasters. So the party goers can have fun facts to share with everyone AND a coaster for their drink!

I’ve also made paper lanterns like these, minus the doily, and plan to stick a battery powered candle in them! Don’t forget the all famous pom pom‘s which I turned into flower pots. I also attempted the Hostess tutorial for candy covered marshmallows (not a great idea – my review later).

There’s probably a ton of things I’m missing, but this is just an update! I’ll get together more and better photos, and all of the tutorial links or how I did it.
