Planning a baby shower is a chance to show the mom-to-be how much her friends and family care for and support her. After choosing the theme, décor, food and location, it’s time to get down to the details. And inevitably a key highlight of any shower is
the diaper cake. If mom has already revealed the baby’s gender as a girl, you can try one of these fun diaper cake ideas to celebrate everything feminine and fun!
A garden party is a lovely way to celebrate a baby girl. For the diaper cake, you can create a whimsical garden with simple supplies from a craft store and local florist. Wrap artificial ivy vines around the diaper
tiers and layer with mom’s favorite flowers. Or coordinate the floral colors with the shower theme to produce an English garden diaper cake centerpiece. Place a small bouquet right on top for the ultimate topper.
Like mother like daughter
What is mom’s favorite hobby, sport, or activity? Tailor the diaper cake to reflect mom’s interests, which she hopes to share with her baby girl. Deck out the diaper cake in mom’s favorite sports team paraphernalia
and colors. If mom loves music make a musical cake by wrapping the diapers in ribbon festooned with musical notes and printed lyrics from her favorite songs. No matter what, it’s bound to be special when it’s truly personalized.
What's better than a giant cake made of diapers? A cake of diapers decked out with classic children’s books and characters. Make a diaper cake that’s decorated with small plush toys of well-loved storybook and fairy tale characters,
and easy-to-read board book versions of the stories. Your guest of honor will leave her shower with a supply of diapers and the beginning of a wonderful library for her baby girl.
Glam it up
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend so fête the mom with a diaper cake that is glamorous and glittery. Use plenty of sparkly ribbons to wrap the diaper tiers, or drape strands of faux pearls. Top it off with a fabulous tiara.
There’s a tiny dancer on the way. Build a diaper cake with layers of pink tulle skirting the bottom layer and then use pink satin ribbon around each of the top layers to create a full ballerina tutu cake. Craft a ribbon
bouquet on top, or place a sweet ballerina doll in the center.
You can find inspiration from all different kinds of sources when designing a diaper cake for a baby girl, just be sure to incorporate it with the theme of your shower and place it where all of your guests are sure to admire it!
