Sock Monkey Baby Shower

Well, the baby shower for my grandson has come and gone and I said I would show you some pictures. 
So, here goes.......
Warning - lots of pictures coming up

Washing line for the backdrop.
I searched the web to find images that I could use, I found some free ones and I bought some.

The favour boxes which held a sock monkey magnet (made by my daughter)

I used the  Cricut cartridge "Tags, Bags & Boxes" to cut out the popcorn boxes.  Drew the stripes and added monkey circles.  The larger monkey on the right is a digi image that I printed, cut and coloured with my Copics.

Food table

My daughter made the diaper bike. These are a wonderful gift for a baby shower, has diapers (lots) socks, hat, blanket, sippy cup and stuffie, in this case, a sock monkey...of course!  Makes a wonderful centrepiece too.

 My friend made the cupcakes, they are lemon pomegranate flavour, soooo delicious!  I printed off the wrappers and toppers and they looked wonderful.

Not the best picture, but it shows a couple of the pictures of Knox that I printed off in b & w and framed.  We used cardboard boxes covered in white paper and tied with a red bow cut from a plastic dollar store tablecloth to give some height to the table.

And finally - my lovely little Knox in his sock monkey hat.  It's a bit big now, but will keep him snug and warm this winter.

That's it for now, hope you enjoyed your visit today.
Have a lovely day everybody!

Such an enjoyable post, thanks for sharing. I've never been to a baby shower, and this looks so much fun. I've not seen a diaper bike before, diaper cakes (around the blogs) but the bike is new to me.I can see what a great gift they would be. Your grandson was a darling. Love all the things you have made for it, must have been so much work....worth it I'm sure. Hugs lin

I am floored by how much work you put into the decorations. This is one of the cutest baby themes I have ever seen. The popcorn buckets are so clever and that diaper bike---oh my gosh that's fantastic! I bet people will be talking about that shower for a long time. Big hugs!
