Baby shower gifts!!

I LOVE baby showers! It is so much fun to make an awesome gift. I am giving these out at a baby shower at work - so I am posting this after the shower - but I hope the recipients love these gifts as much as I do.

This first diaper cake is for Marti, my director at work. She is having her first baby in Early March - George. You can barely see it, but there is a ceramic letter "G" to hang in his room.
Theme of his nursery is boats - so the blankets that wrap the layers of the cake match that theme. But I bought so many toys and other stuff that you can barely even see the blankets!

My theme for this one then went to a bright color toy theme - and I matched all the ribbons and the trim around the bottom!! This looks so much more cute in person. It has stuff on all sides!! It is a 4 layer diaper cake.
This second diaper cake is a 3 layer - and I bought this stuff from the mommy's registry at Target. Then I picked out coordinating ribbon and trim for the base. It also has a ceramic letter "C" - but again it is hard to see in the picture. These letters are so cute. I picked them up at Babies and Beyond in Fayetteville.
I am making a similar outfit for Kiana for some Valentine pictures, so I already had Tulle, Ribbon and the fabrics for this outfit. This is my favorite gift for the second mom, over the cake. I think it turned out so cute!!! This should fit the little girl when she is about 6 months old. I hope her mommy loves it.
