I set the coconut in a tube base made with cardboard to enable it to stand up and tied a bib around the neck. I cut the rubber insert off of a pacifier and glued it to the mouth area. I also glued on some black thread for eyelashes and some wiggle eyes. Slip on a hat and paint some pink on the cheeks. Even if you don't live in a coconut state, you can purchase them at grocery stores. Everyone enjoyed the coconut babies!

I recently threw a baby shower for a friend here in Vietnam. This was her first time attending a baby shower. In Vietnam, people don't have a party until the baby is 1 month old. This party is similar to a baby shower, in that many people bring gifts or money for the baby. Since she is married to an American, we thought it would be nice to give her an American-style baby shower.
My friend had a wonderful time at her party and loved the flower decorations!
I helped my sister with a baby shower for my daughter-in-law recently. She went to a party shop and the lady convinced her to buy these cute little laminated baby things like you'd tape up on a wall or door. Not really knowing what to do with them, I brainstormed.
I have a closet full of wedding leftovers from ones that I've helped decorate. I got out all the medium and large honeycomb bells I had. Cut the top part of it off and paperclipped it together to make a base. Then I slid the laminated pictures into it and it made cute stand-up centerpieces.
The following weekend were two baby boy showers so we cut out the blue ones for it. I guess if you hold onto something long enough you'll find a use for it, huh?
