Classic Tiffany Blue Themed - Baby Shower

We were recently asked to design this beautiful Tiffany blue themed diaper cake for a baby shower. The idea was to make it look like gift boxes tied with beautiful Tiffany coloured ribbons that were stacked on top of one another. It's a simple design that looks elegant and classic for a girls', boys' or unisex baby shower.

Our suggestions for baby shower favours include chic mini purses that you can fill with candies or chocolates. You could also use this packaging for any special favour gift of your choice.

Another option is the Tiffany coloured take-out boxes. Take-out boxes are a hit at any event include weddings, bridal showers, corporate events and of course baby showers.

Our last suggestion is single truffle Tiffany coloured box that comes in two pieces. We embellished the box above with a delicate flower.
We can personalize any of these favour boxes with perfect tags to give it that special touch.
Visit us at for more beautiful baby shower gifts and favours.

Baby Shower Favors - Jungle Safari Theme

Our Wrapped Up! favours service has kept us really busy this winter and we hope would be even more busy in the spring/summer/fall! We have done weddings, bridal showers, baby showers and even holiday party favours this season.

This past weekend, we made these adorable baby shower favours for a very special mom-to-be. Baby's sex is unknown so the hostess choose the ever popular and fun Jungle Safari theme. Apart from the fun aspect of the theme, the warm colours were perfect to cheer the mom-to-be and guests in these cold winter months.

Simple animal print sachet-style bags were filled with sweet jelly beans and chocolates - yum! Tied with ribbons and including personalized tags, these favours made the perfect gifts for the baby shower guests.
The shower decorations included our must-have Jungle-Safari themed diaper cake, yellow/white Baby Blooms bouquet and other jungle themed goodies.

To learn more about our Wrapped Up! service, please visit our Wedding & Party Favours section on our website.

Winter Weddings

It's winter wedding season and it can be as beautiful as any other time of the year! The pristine white backdrop adds a magical touch to weddings and winter themes are such fun to work with.
Even though planning and preparations can be different for weddings in this season there are a few advantages as well. Since its off season, you will find more availabilties with top vendors and could end up with some great deals.
We had two weddings to design favors for this weekend. Above is a picture of one of the wedding favors that were 6"inch quilted pattern cones filled with delicious goodies including Ferero Rocher chocolates!
