Looney Tunes/Bugs Bunny Custom Diaper Cake

Candy,

I absolutely loved the Looney Tunes/Bugs Bunny personalized 5-tier diaper cake that you made!  I requested one thing and just gave you the main details of my decorations for the baby shower… and the product was beautiful!  I could not have picked any other company to make this perfect centerpiece for my best friend’s baby shower!  There is still one week left .. but I cannot wait for this great surprise!  Thank you so much!!

4 Baby Shower Themes for Twins

Hosting a baby shower for twins?  If so, there are many creative baby shower themes that would fit perfectly. I thought I would offer up 4 themes that could help you plan a twins’ baby shower.

Noah’s Ark

With this Noah Ark’s theme concentrate more on the two by two part of the theme. Decorate with little stuffed animals by putting them in pairs. These stuffed animals can then be given to the mom-to-be for the babies. Noah’s Ark is a pretty common baby shower theme so there should be plenty of favors and decorations that you can find, but you can add your unique twist so people know it’s for twins. A cute idea for favors would be cookies in the shape of animals and instead of only giving guests one cookie, you can wrap up two cookies together.

Two Peas In a Pod

A two peas in a pod theme is a classic theme for twins, however, you can take this in several different directions. First, there are many different favors and decorations that you can find for this theme. The major problem will be paring it down to the ones you like.  The most common are two little babies in a pea pod or two actual peas in a pod. You can go either way with the theme or incorporate both into the theme. Decorate the baby shower with green and white and if the sexes of the babies are known you can add in some blue or pink if you wish.

Double Your Delight

This baby shower is perfect for the mom-to-be who is having twins but also loves sweets. Instead of having a full meal at the baby shower, you can have a dessert only shower with close friends and family. Ideas would be for an ice cream bar, a candy station, and whatever other delightful sweet treats the mom-to-be loves.

Two of a Kind

For this baby shower theme you can pick any normal theme or style you want and just make two of everything. A way to get your guests into this theme is to put on the baby shower invitations to buy two of whatever gift they are giving, within reason of course. So, if they were going to buy a baby bathtub, they would buy two of them. Rather than having one dish of a certain food, have two dishes of every food to eat, as well as two cakes. You can take a classic ladybug theme for girls and turn it into a two of a kind ladybug theme by simply doubling whatever you would normally do.

Well I hope these ideas can get you started on selected a theme.  You can start with any of these and tailor them for your specific shower.  Most of all, have fun and enjoy.

Third Trimester Pregnancy Tips: What to Take in Your Hospital Bag

Getting Ready for Baby
Getting Ready for Baby

As your third trimester rolls around and your due date gets closer and closer, you need to start thinking about packing your hospital bag for the birth of your baby. It is important that you do this early enough as it is possible that you may go into labor a few weeks before your actual due date. Here is a list of items that I came up with that you should pack in your hospital bag so that you are prepared to welcome your little one into the world.

Camera – You don’t want to miss having pictures of the big event. Also be sure to pack an extra set of batteries for your camera as they always seem to go dead at the most convenient times.

Clothes For You – Some hospitals allow you to wear your own clothing while others will only have you wear the gowns with a robe. Be sure to bring along comfortable clothing such as pajama pants, sweatpants, t-shirts, and sweatshirts, as you are not going to be wanting to wear any tight or restricting clothing. Don’t forget plenty of undergarments and socks as well. You will also need clothes to wear home when you are discharged from the hospital. You will still be in maternity clothes, so don’t try to bring your regular clothes as they may not fit and leave you frustrated.

Going Home Outfit For Baby – Choose a cute outfit or sleeper for baby to go home from the hospital in. It is a good idea to have a newborn size as well as 0-3 months size to choose from. If it cold outside, be sure to include a coat or blanket to cover baby up with.

Toiletries – After giving birth most women like to be able to shower to freshen up and get a little rejuvenated. Remember to bring shower supplies and other toiletries as well.

Snacks – You don’t want to have to rely on the hospital to provide you with food, especially since you get quite hungry after giving birth. Pack a few healthy snacks for you and your partner.

Car Seat – Although you can’t pack this in your bag it should be installed in the car and ready to go as a hospital will not release a baby unless you have a car seat.

Some other items to include in your bag are:

  • address book
  • cell phone
  • insurance paperwork and cards
  • change for vending machines
  • slippers
  • hat for baby (if not provided by hospital)
  • baby blanket
  • cord blood kit

If you follow these tips you should be all set when it’s time to leave for the hospital.  Maybe you have some other ideas to share.  Feel free to leave your comments so that others readers can benefit .

Our Lil’ Monkey Diaper Cake Testimonial

Hi Candy,

I’m John a 44 year old single male living in Massachusetts that has a friend and she lives in Kennebunkport Maine. She had a baby girl ,  After viewing MANY MANY baby gift sites on the internet , I found your site thru a lot of searching and found your cakes both reasonable in cost and packed with QUALITY (key word here) usable items for the new mother and baby. Your service shipped the monkey cake immediately and I received a phone call from the new mother telling me it was the best baby gift she had received. Thank you for paying attention to detail and caring about the quality items that you use on your cakes.

Candy,

Thanks so much for the gorgeous Beach Baby 2 Tier diaper cake! It looked absolutely perfect with the beach themed shower and the mom-to-be loved it! She said the diapers look like they will be a good fit for the new baby that is to arrive next month and she was pleasantly surprised by the whole thing. This is the first time I’ve ordered from your company and I will be sure to order again in the future for the next family baby shower! Attached is a picture of the cake with the diaper cake poem!
