Spring Flowers Bring Baby Showers: Favor Idea

Photos from my sister’s baby shower; idea pilfered from my friend.

‘Tis the Season for Showers

Tonight I bring you an idea that is both incredibly cute and delightfully simple. Introducing the baby bootie favor. I discovered this creative idea at my sister’s shower last week. The instructions are simple.

Collect the following:

1. Paper ketchup cups (such as you might find at your local fast food store)
2. Cotton balls
3. Colored tissues (pink, green, blue, white, patterned)–travel tissue packs work well!
4. Goodies (trail mix, candy, mints)

Follow these instructions:

1. Glue one of the cotton balls to one side of the ketchup cup.
2. Take one tissue and wrap it around the ketchup cup (and the cotton ball), carefully tucking the ends of the tissue inside the cup.
3. Take a second ketchup cup and slide it inside and fill with goodies.
4. Use these cups as a centerpiece, display on a tiered tray, use as individual favors at each seat.



  1. That is the cutest thing ever! Thanks for sharing.

    One small addition to the instructions. The cup and cotton ball are glued to a poster board cutout of a baby shoe print.
