Three years ago, we celebrated a baby shower for our KindNotes founder. We had a turquoise candy bar that was very popular and the blog post about it continues to be one of the most viewed. It seems candy and/or dessert bars are becoming a part of the normal decor for parties and gatherings.
This past weekend, we had a baby shower for her nephew with a Winnie the Pooh theme, a favorite for the mother-to-be.
The host, Rosa Heidler (founder’s sister) created the entire theme for the shower:
You can see the real wood she used from a fallen tree. It was trimmed, cleaned, and layered with a doily. Desserts and appetizers were placed on top for a beautiful presentation.
When designing a candy or dessert bar, you should use different heights for each dish. Apothecary jars do the job perfectly, especially for candy bars, however if you’re without them, you can use different size boxes and cover them with fabric to create the varying heights. For other decor ideas, you can make flowers from tissue paper and print colored photos to hang on a string like a clothes line.
In the next post, we’ll share the fun shower games we did that were quite unusual and entertaining for guests.
On another note, we had a friend who incorporated our KindNotes jar at a beautiful pink themed baby shower where guests wrote wishes for the mother-to-be. Thank you, Nickie, for sharing!
