Cupcakes are one of the cutest, and most diverse themes for a baby shower. Get inspired to host a party that’s too sweet to be forgotten!

Yes, it’s a cupcake! Try this incredibly clever, flower cupcake that, will absolutely amaze everyone. Here’s what you do:

The Supplies you need:

  • Colorful cupcake liners, regular and mini size
  • Little embellishments; buttons, stickers, felt circles, or scrap paper work really well.
  • Pliable or floral wire for stems
  • Quick-set glue, or hot glue 

How to make the flowers

  • Layer small cupcake liners over, large liners.
  • Use wire to pierce a hole through the (back-side), center of liners. 
  • Bend wire 1/4 inch, add a bead of glue and cover with embellishment or scrap paper.
  • Glue a second, large cupcake liner to the back of the flower (this will cover-up the wire for a cleaner look).

The ultimate cuteness for centerpiece ideas

The baby shower isn’t complete without one.  Cupcake stands are the obvious choice. There are basically two types: disposable and reusable; they can be purchased or easily made at home.

If you would like to keep your lovely centerpiece intact, simply serve sheet cake for dessert. Your pretty cupcakes can be packaged in attractive favor bags and sent home with each guest as a, party favor “thank you.”

One of my favorite ideas is from This centerpiece is a cupcake baby shower gift filled with lots of great stuff for a new baby!  The contents of the gift are wrapped in a baby blanket, which forms the top of this centerpiece.

Go a step further and repeat the process with baby washcloths. Fill each washcloth with baby socks, tie with ribbon. Place into silicone baking cups with the tied-side-down. Use glue dots, or double sided tape to add a faux cherry on top!

If you want to make it into a, cupcake baby shower favor, use adult washcloths filled with bath salts, decorative soaps, candles, or candy.

Quick TIP: Double layer tissue paper will work for this idea too.
