    Today, I partnered with Playtex Baby Bottles to show you how to give expectant moms a better beginning. One way to give soon-to-be-moms a better beginning is to make sure they have all the essentials like Playtex Baby™ VentAire® and Playtex Baby™ Nurser® with Drop-Ins® Liners. Another way is to give them a beautiful (and budget friendly!) baby shower! If you’ve ever thrown a baby shower you know it can be kind of stressful. You want everything to look great but it’s hard if you’re on a budget. Party supplies are expensive! I’m going to show you how to create this Flower Wall Backdrop DIY for under $15!

      All parties need a “wow” decoration…something that catches guest’s eyes as soon as they walk in the room. This floral backdrop is it! I think it’s great for taking pictures (so much better than against a plain wall!) but it can also be used behind food and gift tables.  Speaking of gifts, Playtex Baby VentAire makes a Newborn Gift Set that’s perfect for expectant moms! VentAire offers complete tummy comfort. The unique bottom vent is designed to keep air at back of bottle and out of baby’s tummy and the angled design promotes semi-upright feeding position to help prevent ear infections. This clever design promotes less colic and reflux for happy feeding. Every mother knows- happy baby, happy mom!

Supplies needed

Tissue Paper (5 sheets for each flower)

Pipe cleaners
Strips of fabric (an old sheet works great!) or crepe paper
Command Hooks (for hanging)

Place 5 sheets of tissue paper on top of each other. Starting at the shorter side, fold like a fan (back and forth). Make your pleats approximately 1 inch wide.

Cut both the short sides in a wavy shape.

Secure the middle with a pipe cleaner.

(Gently) Pull the top sheet up and towards the middle.

Repeat on the other side

Lift the next sheet up and bring it towards the middle. Repeat until you reach the bottom sheet.

  Take the end of your fabric and make a knot around the Command Hook.

Twist the flower on to the fabric strip.

Attach the flowers one on top of the other.

If you’re shopping for baby registries (or for your own little one) Target has a Cartwheel:

15% off ALL Playtex Baby Bottles 4/2-4/8

Need an extra registry gift? Playtex Baby™ Nurser with Drop-Ins® Liners are the perfect add-on item! The liners are closer to breastfeeding with easy-to-dispose liner for extra convenience. The liners help reduce colic by reducing the amount of air in the bottle.  As baby feeds, the soft disposable liner inside the bottle gently collapses to prevent air from mixing with the milk and getting into baby’s tummy.

Next time you’re at Target, be sure to check out the Playtex Baby Bottles located in the baby section…and don’t forget the Cartwheel!
