“I don’t know nothin’ bout birthin’ babies” but I do know somethin’ about throwing a baby shower on the cheap!!! As a prop and food stylist, my job often consists of being “crafty” and making due with the props you have in the studio.  I’ve instilled this “MacGyver” trait into my personal life and to give you a snippet of that in action,  this is a baby shower that I hosted for my friend Dana.

Inexpensive wrapping papper makes a great throwaway table runner

Discount children’s books instead of a floral centerpiece, $3 each.

Dollar store bibs dress-up ordinary chairs. Bonus gift for mom-to-be.

Yard sale baby vases make great candy dish.

My friend Sharon made this fun cake, it was delicious!!!!!
