Baby Love Bouquet

I’m throwing a baby shower this Saturday, so I’m in full fledged party mode. My friend Ginny is the only person I know who is passionate about latte art, so a coffee-themed baby shower is only fitting. Now, of course, I’m doing this on a budget {more like a non-existent budget} and as my husband always says, “necessity is the mother of invention.”

So, here is one of my “inventions”.

Here’s what you’ll need to make these Baby Love Bouquets for your coffee-themed baby shower:

2 large Mason jars

Satin ribbon

A bag of coffee beans

Large white coffee filters

Decorative cupcake wrappers

Embellishments {I ripped these off some old gift bags. I have nearly every bridal, baby, and Christmas gift bag I ever received saved for a need for creative inspiration such as this. It’s about time I put them to good use don’t you think?}

Skewer sticks {As flower “stems}

Double sided tape

Now here’s the clincher. If you’re letters or embellishments don’t lie flat within the filter, you can use sewing pins. I used a set of bent nose pliers to bend the pin and sandwich it in between the two coffee filters. Two words: Trial. Error. I did prick my thumb at one point and bleed all over the lower case “b”, but I survived and I now have these coffee filter bouquets to show for it.

I’ll be sure to post some other baby shower goodies as the inspiration hits me. Until then, I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Memorial Day holiday!
