I have amazing friends that I’ve met through blogland. And yesterday? They surprised me with a virtual baby shower.
All of the sweet ladies I’m about to gush over are friends that I’ve made through blogging over the years. They’ve each become great, great friends and I have fun/crazy/inappropriate/outrageous memories with each of them. Yesterday, these ladies surprised me with a virtual baby shower. Baby Girl will be here very soon, but these gals live all over the US and the airlines hate bloggers. Just kidding. The airlines don’t hate bloggers. But it is hard to get everyone to Denver for a baby shower. So what do they do? They throw an online party that would make the folks at Martha Stewart jealous!
Each blogger created a baby shower-appropriate DIY that you will want to recreate. You will. I promise. Read on to see all of the projects!
Okay. This amazing Donut Piñata was created by Kelly of Studio DIY. This girl is the piñata queen. It’s so fitting that she made a donut-shaped party staple. We all know I love donuts. To see more pics and the full how-to, visit Studio DIY!
And then Brittni from Papernstitch goes and makes this adorable paper flower sack. These are the perfect centerpiece/favor/gift. My family is throwing me a baby shower next week and I’m almost positive these will make an appearance! To see more pics and the full how-to, visit Papernstitch!
Chelsea of Lovely Indeed is a real treat in person. I mean it. I have significant dance memories of her popping her shoulders and it was the best pop I’ve seen in decades. She made these adorable mini cards that would be perfect thank you notes! For more pics and the full how-to, visit Lovely Indeed!
Melanie of You Are My Fave is a bloggy friend who actually lives out here in Denver. And I love her. And her sweet baby boy. She shares how to blow every other guest out of the water with the anatomy of a baby gift. Just look at the packaging! Bam! For more pics and the full how-to, visit You Are My Fave!
My girl, Ashley of Sugar & Cloth, created this adorable geometric wooden mobile for BG-dub. Yes. Pick your jaw up off the flo’. She is always killin’ it with the DIYs. And the jokes. For more pics and the full how-to, visit Sugar & Cloth!
Melissa, the baking goddess behind The Faux Martha, and I are due with babies about one week apart! AND they’re both girls. AND she’ll (hopefully) be moving to Denver next year. AND she made me donut skewers with little pinwheels. Shut the front door. For more pics and the full how-to, visit The Faux Martha!
Erin of ArtSocial has great fashion sense. And she’s the sweetest little whippersnapper. Speaking of whipping, she whipped out these adorable swaddled bottles. I died when I saw them. Now I need to go swaddle my cans of Diet Coke. Everything’s better swaddled, don’t ya think? For more pics and the full how-to, visit ArtSocial!
And then we’ve got amazing Lauren of A Fabulous Fete whose calligraphy would stop Martha in her tracks. This girl is perfect in every way. I mean it. What does she do? She goes and makes this crazy classy wooden sign that melted my cold, dead heart. For more pics and the full how-to, visit A Fabulous Fete!
Jenny of Hank & Hunt. I’ve loved her for a long time. Even before she and I became friends, I stalked her. She created this sweet backdrop made from paper fans. An absolutely perfect environment to take crazy photos in front of! For more pics and the full how-to, visit Hank & Hunt!
To all my gals involved, thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can’t say how overcome I was when I saw the first tweet. It led to an emotional meltdown in my bedroom. That’s how amazing this was.
As you can see, the baby shower inspiration is abundant these days. I hope you’ll check out each blog and recreate some or all of these projects for your next baby shower! There’s something in the water and people are going to get pregnant forever. 🙂

this is incredible! all the projects are beautiful (of course!) & you guys have such a sweet community 🙂
Daria! Isn’t it amazing how giving everyone is? I absolutely love every friend I’ve made through blogging. 🙂
Bonnie whiting says
Ok. I am slow and confused. The crafts are Great! But it is just a picture. I don’t get it. Fans as a backdrop to take pictures in front of? The fans are at her house. No one is in the same place so how do you take pictures. The centerpiece is beautiful. But it is a picture. Snacks? They are a picture. The snacks are in California and the mother to be is in Texas. Please explain to me.
Hi Bonnie! This was a “virtual” baby shower. Every blogger contributed an idea or recipe for an aspect of that type of party. That way, readers could find inspiration for throwing their own shindig while still celebrating with me and the arrival of our baby girl! We all live all over the country so this was a way for them to throw me a shower without actually being all together. I hope that makes sense! 🙂
Also – I was the mother to be and am in Arizona. Though at the time of this shower, I was living in Colorado. Thanks for reading! – Lexy
Sarah Hearts says
Oh my goodness, this is too cute for words! I want to go swaddle some bottles right now 🙂

I saw how coordinated everything was when I put the collage together! It really was meant to be! Love you, girl. 🙂
Kelly @ Studio DIY says
We love you Lex! Had so much fun working on this little surprise for you, and you most certainly deserve it! I can’t wait for your little lady to get here!!
Ah, Kel! I just love you guys! It was the world’s great surprise and I feel so lucky to have you guys for friends!
