DIY "Cute as a button" Baby shower

Hi everyone! 
We've been receiving a lot of orders for our very sweet button soaps lately. A lot, if not all of them, are for baby showers.. 
This got me thinking about the "Cute as a button" baby shower theme. I found so many ideas online, you can see it all here and more on my Pinterest board called "cute as a button" which I made just for this post :)  Downloads page with all the posts printables

What do I need for a cute as a button baby shower?
  • Color scheme
  • Invitations
  • Decorations
  • Refreshments
  • Some games
  • Party favors
Color scheme
When I want to be inspired by color, I always find myself browsing through the design seeds blog. I wrote about it before here
These are a few of the color combinations I love, find yours and design the whole party with the colors of your choice. I recommend choosing 1-3 colors, to make it is easier to coordinate everything..

You can buy custom made invitations online, or you can make them yourself! 
Here are a few ideas for DIY cute as a button invitations:
  • Glue real button on the invite
  • Use a button stamp
  • Use a circle paper punch to make cute buttons
  • Make a very large button as an invite
You will find examples of these ideas on my "cute as a button" Pinterest board.
