diaper "cake"

I'm throwing a baby shower for my friend D next weekend. I made this diaper "cake "as one of the decorations. I'm really happy with how it turned out! There are 56 disposable diapers, wrapped with a receiving blanket on the first layer, 2 preemie prefold cloth diapers on the second layer and a baby washcloth on the top layer. There is a baby bath towel as the base. Tucked into & around the cake are travel size baby items, nail clippers, 2 more baby washcloths, a rattle, a frame, booties, our favorite lullaby CD (On A Starry Night), and more. Isn't it cute? I hope she likes it!


  1. What a great idea! That looks terrific!

  2. Hi Melanie! About your comments re: the Celebration of Heart and Home blog festival - I was thinking about this one being a sort of "catch all" - anything goes as long as it has something to do with mothering, serving family, the home, etc. I guess the only thing I'm hoping for is if it's about housework it somehow ties in to how that blesses the family - not only a "how to". Am I making any sense? I'm tired, lol!!

    I have an idea for how to write up the "festival" once I get the submission, so I'd actually like a wide variety of things!
