Each place setting had a placemat of scrapbook paper, layered with a paper napkin in turqoise. The scrapbook papers had little rubber duckies on them...they were so cute. Anyway, I also wrapped the silverware in turqoise napkins and coordinating paper napkin rings.
Each person had a little favor bag, filled with chocolates and crinkle-cut shredded paper (in the color palette of the party, but of course!). Each was labeled with a round sticker that said, "Anticipating a Sweet Arrival! Holly's Baby Shower, 07.19.08". (From my favorite online paper supply store, The Paper Source.)
I had one large blue rubber ducky in a vase of water in the center of the table, followed by a parade of yellow rubber duckies down the table.
I had originally planned to put several vases in the center, with blue water and rubber duckies in each, but it turns out my rubber duckies were so cheap that they didn't float upright! Since I thought the look of dead duckies wasn't a very festive one, I had to go with Plan B. But I think it worked out okay!
Conratulations to Holly and Dan in advance! Can't wait to meet your little guy next month!
