{Real Parties} Baby Shower Decorations

So it's been a while since I share part of my {Real Parties} Baby Shower series with you but it's back.  The best part is...
my baby niece is HERE!
Well... she's been here over a month now but who's keeping track :)
Welcome Madysen Elizabeth!
All I can say is LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this little peanut!
So in honor of this beautiful little baby I wanted to share with you the decorations I made for my sister's baby shower.
I do apologize that my pictures are not the best and I did not get a chance to take photos of everything since we were so pressed for time. 
Here's the banner I made to hang behind my sister's chair and to use in her little girl's room afterwards.  (I would have made a name banner but my sister wasn't sharing the baby's name)
I used different shades of pink and included glitter letters and small glitter butterflies. 

I made puff balls in three different colors and sizes to hang above the buffet and the gift table.  I should have made many more but these took me forever to fold, and pull apart the layers because I did not want to tear the tissue paper.  If you are looking for directions on how to make these click HERE.

Considering the amount we already spent on the shower, we opted to go without floral arraignments on the table (especially since there were 8 tables) so instead for each table, I bought a small pink cactus and wrapped it in pink wrapping paper then added a little piggy bank as a prize for the bingo winner.  In another post you will get a chance to see the mother to be gift.

I also added some more puff balls above the buffet table and also added a strip of pink paper down the middle for some color.

For the plasticware, I purchased three small white buckets and added pink bows and three glittered butterflies to continue with the girly butterfly theme.  I highly recomend buying these buckets whenever you see them and in every color because they can be used for so many things.

Lastly, stay tuned for the next {Real Party} post on my baby shower favors!
Here's a sneak peek until then!

Thanks for looking!

Valentine Pencil Topper & Tag

Yes, I know I have been MIA this past week but it has been a bit crazy here with planning for my little man's birthday and other orders coming in and well to be honest with you, I just wanted to relax a little bit whenever I get the chance.  However, I did want to share with you my pencil toppers and tags I made for Valentine's day even though it was about a week ago.
Hopefully the love of your life made your Valentine's Day extra special!

Valentine Pencil Topper

To make the pencil topper you can follow my tutorial for my Easter Pencil Toppers HERE!

Valentine Tag

I added my tags to baggies filled with Kisses and also tied one around our candy jar.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Valentine's Day with someone they love!

Valentine "Conversation Hearts" Banner

When you think about Valentine's Day can you ever NOT think about conversation hearts?
The two really do go hand in hand and cross all generations since they seem to have been around since forever.
Though the new conversation hearts tend to follow the current slang of the times (sup babe, seriously?) I created this banner with the more traditional conversation heart sayings.

This banner is handmade using premium cardstock and crepe paper to create a romantic banner perfect for whatever you might have in mind for Valentine's Day.  There are five large heart pendants which showcase five different conversation heart sayings.  Each heart is surrounded by a ruffle of crepe paper and is completely finished on the back.
Here are some more close ups.

Here's the completely finished back.

If you are interested in this banner you can check out my etsy shop by clicking HERE or if you are interested in anything else you have seen on my blog you can email me HERE.  I love getting custom orders and would adore creating something amazing for your special occasion.

Thanks for looking :)

Valentine "Be Mine" Banner

Just in time for Valentine's Day!
Valentine "Be Mine" Banner

I created the "Be Mine" banner exclusively for my etsy shop, which I opened just last week.
Sadly, both banners are still in my shop but that could definitely be GREAT news for you if you are looking for that special decoration to complete your Valentine party or to create a romantic atmosphere for a delicious dinner for two.

This banner was handmade by yours truly with the use of my Cricut machine and my personal creativity. 
Here are some more close up pictures so you can see the details of the scallopped pendants, the white pearls, and the pink glitter on each letter.

Each letter is pop dotted and covered in sparkly pink glitter which matches the patterned cardstock exactly.  I also used a mixed up font for a whimsical yet romantic look.

If you are interested in this banner or would like to check out my other listings please click HERE or click on KTDesignsbyKatania in my etsy mini sidebar.  You can also email me HERE directly if you are interested in anything you have seen on my blog or if you are looking for something custom made for any occasion. 
I would love to make something special for you!
