Hi, I'm going to host a baby shower for a very good friend in about a month, she is a florist, so the theme will be flowers, flowers, flowers.

She is very detail oriented and a perfectionist, so I want everything to be beautiful and nice.

I already got a wonderful centerpiece that is a flower bouquet of baby clothes that I found at www.swankyblooms.com and the gifts are baby clothes bouquets as well, but for the cake I need to make an impressive flower arrangement and I have no idea where to start.

If you have any ideas it will be truly appreciated, I also want to bake some cupcakes to look like flowers and put them in decorated boxes as favors, but have not been able to find nice boxes other than the wiltons. any ideas?

thank you!

Hi and welcome to CC!

Are you planning to make the flowers yourself or are you going to use real or silk flowers? If you are making them yourself will you be using BC, RI, fondant and or gum paste?


There are also lots of photos here on CC that you could get some inspirations from. If you go to the galleries tab and then click on search and put in your search criteria you may get some ideas. Alternately you could also look under the flowers or baby shower links.


HTH!

Sorry, I missed one of your questions:

I just googled it and these are just some that came up:

www.brpboxshop.com
sophiesfavors.com/boxes_3x3x3.html
www.efavormart.com/3x3x3favorbox-100pc.aspx
www.surfasonline.com/index.cfm

maybe even papermart.com

At least it's a start!

And I also got some really nice favors from the same store www.swankyblooms.com little baby sock bouquets and washcloth bouquets to decorate cupcake boxes.

If you have any other idea, I would love to hear it!
thanks again.
