My family and I are throwing an Asian Themed Baby Shower for my beautiful cousin, Maria. Because she was having a boy, I suggested doing the party in hues of blues and greens instead of the traditional red, black, and gold colors typically associated with an Asian theme.
Here are the centerpieces I came up with. I used Chinese take-out boxes in blue and green, and embellished them with coordinating ribbon, beads, and charms. I printed out Chinese characters for “mother”, “father”, “baby boy”, “family”, and “happiness” and glued each one to the front. I layered the characters in black scrapbook paper.
I filled them with goodies for the mother-to-be to take home and added a set of chopsticks that I happened to find in my junk drawer from Chinese take out a few weeks ago!
Here are some baby shower gifts that will fit nicely into these takeout boxes:
- Baby socks
- Newborn onsies
- Bath Rags
- Small Stuffed Animals
- Travel sized baby toiletries
- Small books
- Baby Bottles
- Small Toys
These were so fun and easy to make. Maria and her husband loved them and thought the creativeness was a nice touch.
