Cute as a Button Baby Shower

Updated on August 17, 2013

Cute as a Button Baby Shower

Planning a Cute as a Button baby shower is easier than you think. Not only is it a popular theme, but incorporating buttons into all aspects of the party is fun and simple. Since buttons are just circles with button holes, even the least crafty individual can succeed at this type of party.

We will look at these button theme items: place card holders, favors, cookies, banners, table decorations and more.

Button Frame Place Card Holder

This button frame is one of my favorite items because it can serve as a place card holder as well as a picture frame. It is colorful enough to go with any d├ęcor.

You can also make your own button place card holder by:

1. Finding a small card

2. Writing the guests name on it

3. Gluing a button or two on it.

Cute as a Button Candles

"Cute as a Button" candles make great baby shower favors. You can either purchase them or make them using a votive candle, ribbon and button.

The easiest way to make this favor is to:

1. Select a votive candle holder with nicely scented wax.

2. Take a ribbon and tie it through the button holes.

3. Wrap the ribbon around the candle and tie it in a bow.

Decorating with buttons is so easy and cheap, but it look very elegant. Take a look at this ideas from Wedding Chicks to add buttons to everything from the invitations to a cake.

Button Cookies

Button cookies are great to make for a dessert. Simply:

1. Find a good sugar cookie recipe. Here is one: Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

2. Locate a round cookie cutter.

3. Decorate with colored frosting.

4. Add four black dots to represent button holes in the center.

The video below shows you how to make "paintable" frosting for your button cookies.

Button Theme Cupcakes

This is another creative idea from the staff at Paper Source. Just about any dessert can be turned into one with a button theme. Just create a button pick with a piece of small round paper and a toothpick.

Cute as a Button Baby Shower Ideas

If you are looking for a meaningful idea and decoration for your baby shower,

1. Provide index cards with a button stamped on them.

2. Ask your guests to write a wish for the new mother-to-be and/or baby.

3. Hang a clothes line made of ribbon across the room.

4. Provide clothespins for guests to attach their card to the clothes line.

The favor bags on the right are also a great idea. Find generic bags that you like and paste a button on each one. Print a message on each one using a stamp or stickers. Credit: Luminoso Blu
