My favorites are always the candy bar favors. They are so versatile and can be personalized for any idea, color, or theme. I have used templates for great favors and I have designed up bars for individual clients. The personalized ones are ALWAYS my favorite by far. I wish I had taken pictures of some of them, but I didn't.
These would also be great as baby announcements! How fun and sweet!
I also enjoy doing the gum heads in the boy and girls. Gum heads are such a different idea. They take a regular 5 pack of your favorite gum and wrap a foam core around in pink or blue, depending upon your baby shower gender. Then we add a little boys head, a pair of matching pink or blue slippers, and a bottle with "It's a Girl" or "It's a Boy" on it. They can even be personalized with the Mother or Baby's name instead. So cute!!
What about using a sweet theme to add candy to your baby shower? Use Whirly Pop lollipops to add a little sweetness in your favorite theme. Personalize a sticker on the front with your baby shower details and theme. A cute Sesame Street theme would be so sweet! Or how about Tigger bouncing into your party?
Little Princess theme for a baby girl shower? Or a cute Train for a little boy? Or just go generic with a "Baby Boy" cupcake wrapper in blue or "Baby Girl" cupcake wrapper in pink? They would dress up your table with some real pizzazz.
