This month Noah’s Ark is taking center stage. I really like this cake – its simple lines, soft colors, and the fact the characters on the Noah’s Ark ribbon matches! I saw the bank about six months ago and knew I wanted to use it on a diaper cake.
First, I thought it was a great theme to use this month since everyone is talking about savings, our kids future, etc so a bank is classic way to start collecting change for new baby. In my house we have a community bank where all the change from the laundry goes, change from the couch, etc. The community jar is dumped once a year at vacation time. I split it among the four kids and it becomes there spending money. (Ok, they are teenagers and it isn’t as much as it once was – but what is these days?).
I hope you enjoy the longer days and the warmer days (PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make them warmer). It feels good when you can appreciate the simple and sweet things life has to offer. I wish all my existing customers and new visitors the best this month.
This month I wanted to design a diaper cake that would match the general theme for November. Naturally, I am talking about Thanksgiving and giving thanks for all we have. I thought it would be appropriate for this month’s cake be a simple “I Love You” tribute to the parents of the new baby. And so I am introducing the I Love Mommy and Daddy 4 Tier Diaper Cake.
I also wanted to design a gender neutral cake so that it could be given to a girl or boy without getting hung up on traditional colors such as blue for boys and pink for girls.
The plush toys are Gund products. The lion is the Gund I Love Daddy plush toy and the elephant is the Gund I Love Mommy plush toy. The topper will vary to include either a Gund lion or elephant rattle.
A nice assortment of Johnson and Johnson baby products is also included along with coordinating ribbons to finish it off.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year, and I am thankful for the parents that I have and the good values they instilled in me.
Well tomorrow is the first of October already. Hard to believe that summer is over, kids in school, and the leaves are beginning to fall. I like the fall season with the rich colors of reds, yellows and oranges. I enjoy when the trees look like a work of ART, but when they fall on the grass and carpet the yard they look like WORK.
So for the month of October I was inspired to create an autumn colored four tier diaper cake with rich colors, leaves (the kind that you don’t have to rake) the cutest couple of a black bear and an adorable moose, and to add the natural element – Baby Burts Bees. I thought an appropriate name is Lil’ Forest Friends. What do you think? You can find the product details on our website by at Lil’ Forest Friends 4 Tier Diaper Cake.
Hope you have a wonderful month with all that it has to offer:
Going to the apple orchard for cider and donuts
Bringing the biggest pumpkin home to carve and having your child pick out a detailed design – and wondering how you’re going to accomplish it
Halloween and the kids all dressed up (and picking out your favorite candy from their bag –mine is Reese cups)
Crisp mornings and hot coffee
And all the planning for the upcoming holidays in November and December!
Enjoy the start of the fall season. Your comments are always welcome.
