Duck baby shower: make your own invites
With a little time and creativity, you can make your own invitations.
Find a 4×6 or 5×7″ template of a ducky (favequilts.com for awesome templates). Trace the outline on a cute piece of card stock and cut it out. Next, select a contrasting paper pattern and cut it into the shape of a duck wing. Glue the very top edge of the wing to the body of the duck (it should lift up or open like a flap). When your guest lifts the wing of the duck, they will see your invitation wording.
TIP: Try adding a touch of, yellow fuzzy feathers, or a little button to the duck’s wing; or put a cute little bow around ducky’s neck. Yellow id not the only color for an adorable, rubber ducky baby shower. Pretty much any color or pattern is acceptable, as long as mom-to-be, and/or the parents-to-be, will be happy with your selection.
Clever rubber ducky baby shower idea
Anyone who’s ever loved a little rubber bath toy, knows what happens after a while; the little hole on the bottom of the toy takes in water. Before long, you’re dealing with stale water, bacteria and mold growing inside the toy. It’s hard to prevent this from happening and even harder to clean. That’s why, we love, love Boon Odd Ducks. Parents no longer have to worry about dirty ducks!
You can impress mom-to-be with these clever little duckies. The little ducks, come in lots of different colors and patterns; use them for baby shower favors, party games, decorations, and a cool baby shower gift. (Get more info about Boon Odd Ducks ) and where to buy them.
Rubber Ducky Inspiration
We love this one from Object Splendor! What a great idea for a centerpiece! You can buy supplies right off their site. Or go on your own way to find, some cute ducky wallpaper or baby duck, crafting paper (there’s an absence out there).
Decorate small jars, recycled coffee tubs, or other containers with contact paper, wall paper, or craft paper. Add water and gorgeous, fresh flowers.
Nearly any kind of flower will work for this center piece- sunflowers, daisies, or tulips, are just a few ideas. Matches votive candles are a really nice touch.
TIP: If you’re ducky baby shower scheme is yellow and blue, keep flower arrangements simple, by not adding too many colors. If you do want to add another color, white is a great option.
If, mom-to-be is wishing for pink-; pink ducks would be just as adorable with the blue, yellow, green, orange, or white background.
This is a charming idea: Place a little ducky favor in the center of each guests plate.
