DIY Baby Shower Diaper Cakes


I am throwing a baby shower for my youngest daughter.  My SIL and daughter do not want to know the sex of the baby until he/she is born.  

Soooo.  We are doing a Woodland theme baby shower.  Keeping it gender neutral.

I had some help from a sweet lady on Etsy that made up the two layers of diapers into a cake.  
I added my own Woodland items to decorate these.

I added to each cake stuffed woodland creatures and a book about each one.  
My daughter is going to do Woodland theme in the baby's room.  
These diaper cakes will be the centerpieces and then after the shower she will have these cute animals and books for the baby's room and lots of diapers for the baby.

This is probably my fave out of all the centerpieces I made.

Of course I had to throw in a grandma book here and there.

I decided to make a caterpillar diaper cake for the book table at the shower.  I am sure most of you know that for baby showers you ask each guest to bring a book instead of a card to the shower.  We will ask each guest to write something in the cover of the book to remember them when we read the book to the baby.

I bought this caterpillar toy/rattle.

Then I took 6 pampers and rolled them and wrapped them with woodland creature ribbon.  I put these around each of the sections of the caterpillar's body.

Then I put soft baby books in-between each of the diaper sections.
Made for a cute book worm/caterpillar for the book table.

I am getting excited for this new arrival to our family.

I am hoping for a boy since we only have the two girls from my oldest daughter.

My SIL's mom wants a girl since it is all boys on her side of the family.

We will see which of us gets our wish.
Most of all we just want this sweet baby to be healthy and happy.

The ultra sound pictures they have now are amazing.  You can actually see this sweet baby already sucking his/her thumb.

Have a wonderful new week.  
Gosh I love summer.  
The weather has been so great.
I will have my newest treasure to show you hopefully soon.  Decorating it is the hold up.  
Looking for the right decor.  
The hunt is on.
