Twinkle, twinkle little star, do you know how loved you are? What a great winter wonderland theme for a celestial baby shower, complete with white, silver and gold glittery details. Start the party off right with shimmery or star-shaped invitations announcing“A Star is Born.”
This shower has all sorts of sparkly details including garlands of hanging stars, candles nestled in bowls surrounded by glistening glass gems and twigs spray-painted white and silver covering gold, silver or white tablecloths. Be sure to include lotsof white flowers on every table top.
Look for holiday lights you can use to hang around the entrance, or even all around the room for a festive touch. Add more sparkle to the table by liberally sprinkling star and moon confetti all over the table, covering it like stardust.
Star-shaped cookie cutters will be this party’s best friend. Cut out star sandwiches and stick a sparkly-topped toothpick into each to brighten up the table. Sprinkle cookies with edible glitter or cover them with various sugar decorations that youcan find in the baking aisle of your supermarket or party store.
Look for the biggest star cake topper you can find or make your own out of cardboard, spray-painted with glitter paint. Use a stencil in the shape of a moon and stars on top of the cake and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Remove the stencil and you havea simple yet beautiful decoration. Garnish glasses of non-alcoholic punch with slices of star fruit and make star-kabobs by skewering cut out star-shaped strawberries, pineapple and assorted melons with grapes in between as spacers.
Supply some gold and silver pens and a “Wish Upon a Star” guest book that everyone fills with their hopes, dreams and wishes for the new baby’s future. Or have guests write them on 3” stars cut from sparkly craft paper. Add to the decor by hanging themfrom a mobile for all to read. When the party’s over, compile them into a special book for the mom-to-be to share someday with her child.
When the party’s over, send your guests home with inexpensive candles from the dollar store that you’ve wrapped with shiny scrapbooking paper. Tie each with a coordinating ribbon and attach a few sparkly stars. Everyone will be sure to remember mommy and baby as the season’s brightest stars!
