my life homemade: Story Book Diaper Party

Story Book Diaper Party

We love to throw parties! It's what we do. Along with creating one of kind items and pieces for parties, gifts, and every day life, creating a party for a special moment in your life is something we take great pride in. We want to be able to create a memory in your life that you can look back on and think, wow, that was something worth remembering.

When I found out my sister in law was expecting her second child, another girl, I knew I HAD to throw her a diaper party. Mostly because she threw me one when I was pregnant with my second child, a boy, and I wanted to return the favor. Plus, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to have a party.

I had been wanting to have a story book party for some time now and having only boys, that didn't seem possible. So, I took this as the perfect time to pull out all the vintage books and pieces I have been eyeing and get started right away. Especially before anyone could change my mind.
Since it was January, I wanted to keep with a wintery feel by using dark browns and blacks and deep reds paired with burlap and rustic pieces. But, to keep it light and not so stark and harsh, I added white and creams to mix of colors as well.

For food I wanted it to be more of a "Diapers and Dessert" party with lots of little goodies and sweets to munch on. I contacted a few friends who happen to be sweets makers and got a list going for them. Then I got right to work creating the layout, design, and items for the party. From stacked vintage books to the fairy tale banner to the handmade onesies, the party was a huge success and could not have been happier how it turned out. The mom to be loved every thing and got a ton of diapers to help with her new baby girl.
