To create the centerpieces you will need these supplies for each centerpiece:

  1. I very carefully hot glue the dowels to baskets and balloons to dowels, 
  2. Take two 1″ inch ribbon strips up and over the balloons covering the dowels and gluing the ribbons to the basket on either side.  Apply a dab of glue on top of the balloon to secure the ribbons in place.
  3. Use the Decofun bowmaker to create 4 small bows using the 1/4′ ribbon.  Watch this video to see how easy it is.
  4. Glue the bows over the 1″ ribbon on the balloon as desired.
  5. Create the banner using your Cricut, the cardstock, the pen and this project in Cricut Design Space
  6. Use adhesive foam squares to create the banner and attach it to the balloon.
  7. Fill the basket with flowers and arrange as desired.

The theme of this shower came  from the most adorable invitations I found on Evite.

They are so sweet and can you believe they were free?  I love Evite

and some yummy recipes to try.

Happy DIYing friends!
