I had the honor of hosting a baby shower for a dear friend recently. I had co-hosted a shower years ago but never thrown one by myself before. I made almost everything myself to save on cost. We had a total of 13 ladies over to my house for a lunch time shower. The mother-to-be is expecting her 2nd daughter and I gave her a few options on the theme and was thrilled with her choice of a "Tutu Thrilled" theme!

I bought the tulle in 40 yard spools in the wedding department at Hobby Lobby when 50% off. The main costs were the cake & diapers. I could have made the cake to look like this but the requested flavor was Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Icing, which I am not experienced in making. Plus it took stress of me by just ordering it. Overall, I think it turned out very cute! The mom-to-be received a book from each guest along with their gift. Happy Partying! *TULLE LETTER UPDATE: As this post is becoming more popular I can't keep up with all the requests on how to make the tulle wrapped letter. So here it is: I just made it up! I bought a 8" paper mâché letter at Hobby Lobby. Painted it the same color as the tulle. Take a spool of tulle and hot glued the 1st end down. Then start wrapping the letter. I went over it several times then hot glued the last end down where it wouldn't show. The flower is on the wedding isle of Hobby Lobby. The tulle makes the bottom of the letter fluffy so it can't stand on its own. I lean it on a bookshelf. If you need it freestanding, you need to create a flat weight at the bottom before tulle wrapping it. These instructions are for personal use only and not to be sold for profit.
