Sprinkle Baby Shower: DIY CUPCAKE BAR




I know the "sprinkle" or baby "shower" theme has been done a million times, so I wanted to do a little twist on that concept. I love that concept, don't get me wrong, but I had an idea to use the sprinkle in the form of the kind you sprinkle on top of cakes and in this case cupcakes :)

I chose to have a interactive dessert bar where the guests picked their flavor of cupcakes, their filling, frosting, and topping to create their custom cupcake. This was a perfect activity to get people socializing and interacting.  I HIGHLY recommend doing something like this if you are choosing to opt out games as the activity. 

I chose the color scheme off a 1 dollar shower curtain I purchased from a thrift store and used it as my table cloth.  Since the girls and I who threw the party were on a budget I just looked around from previous parties what I had and I was able to grab things from a bunch of old parties to create this whole look. I love when I am able to reuse things :)
