Gift tags, banners, and cupcake wrappers—all with hand drawn details, of course!

Yup, they’re free!

AND they’re hand drawn! Every watermelon seed, every sun ray, every arch of color on those rainbow tags below–all of it is hand drawn! That’s the only way I do things around here 😉

Banners

Watermelon might as well be the official fruit of Summer, so that’s why it’s featured in these fun summer printables. This banner is available in 3 different sizes to fit all you party plans! They work for baby showers, birthday party’s, or your family BBQ!

And look for more fingerprint and signature posters for all your special events

I have fingerprint posters, signature posters and more available for sale on Etsy and Amazon Handmade.

What’s a fingerprint poster?? I’m glad you asked! They’re a perfect way to commemorate guests at an event and also make great thank you gifts for teachers and coaches 😉 People add their fingerprint and sign their name on the artwork as a clever way to complete an element. Fingerprint trees are the most common–fingerprints are the added as leaves on the branches. And of course, I have some for your summer party plans!

Baby Sprinkle Theme Ideas

Babies come with so…much…STUFF! Especially the first one since you don’t know exactly what you’ll need and use. If you’re welcoming a second or third baby soon, they get to benefit from all the cribs, clothes, changing pads and burp cloths that you still have, so sometimes a full baby shower isn’t necessary! A “Baby Sprinkle” is a fun idea that allows guests to focus on the necessities and other fun details to welcome baby: diapers, wipes, personalized gifts, and nursery decor.

Check out these fun theme ideas for your Baby Sprinkle and the fingerprint posters to go along with them!

Donut Theme

Can’t go wrong with a donut party! Have guests add their fingerprint and sign their name to make sprinkles on this donut. I have options that don’t require fingerprints too!

Get it in the format you need:

We WHALEY Love You!

Have guests add their fingerprint and sign their name as water spouting above the whale!

Rubber Ducky

A rubber ducky holding an umbrella works great for a baby sprinkle. Guests add their fingerprints and sign their name as raindrops. Lots of colors options available!

Add a fingerprint and sign your name as a raindrop

But wait, there’s more!

If these ideas don’t fit your baby sprinkle theme, I have customizable options of just about everything so I can make anything work with a simple change in text or colors 🙂 Plus, I’ve got the ink pads for fingerprints and pens for signatures too!

Jungle Safari Baby Shower Ideas

It’s a jungle out there, right?! Especially if you’re planning an extra special jungle safari-themed baby shower! Check out the awesome ideas below to help you simplify the planning, build a cohesive theme, and make sure your guests have a blast while celebrating the parents-to-be.

1. Invitations

Where it all starts. Whether you’re going virtual, or in-person, there are a lot of very cute jungle safari-themed invitations available.

On a budget? Go with digital invites! Or, if you’re old fashioned like me and want to be able to hold an actual invite in your hand, hard copy is the way to go. Either way, make sure all the essentials are included: what, when, where, why, and don’t forget the registry!

INVITEDdesignco has some great safari-themed invites that you can download, edit, and print or send electronically.

Hard copy printed invitations are becoming harder and harder to find these days! I have a few available, and there are also some cute options from other sellers on Etsy too.

2. The Decor

A few jungle-themed items can go a long way as far as the decor is concerned. Think centerpieces, a back drop, or main table for food and favors, and a few safari touches here and there with animal print balloons, banners and signs. A pack of big faux tropical leaves, some animal print balloons and ribbon, and some neutral elements can go a long way!

Fun animal print balloons are inexpensive and can tie your theme together.

If you like to DIY, I have a free printable “Stay Wild” jungle themed banner you can download, cut and assemble. All that jungle foliage on the pendants is hand drawn, btw! It comes in 3 sizes, including a mini size which works great for cake toppers or table settings.

3. The Food

Whether you’re doing a full spread or just some simple appetizers, there are lots of ways to include a safari motif into what you’re serving. You can go crazy with a lion veggie platter and elephant fruit salad, or you can serve popular food choices and gussy up the food table with som jungle safari decor.

4. The Guestbook

Arguably the most important part of the baby shower. If you know me, you know I may be slightly biased here, but you have an opportunity to ensure that the memories and the people at the baby shower are cherished forever. Seize that opportunity!

Fingerprint Guestbooks: My specialty 🙂 These come in a variety of designs and styles. The popular ones I have are trees. Guests add their fingerprint and sign their name as a leaf on the tree. I have others where fingerprints are added as balloons or spots on a giraffe. Once everyone has added their “personal touch,” frame it and add it to the nursery decor! It doesn’t get any better than that! Imagine sweet jungle animals and the fingerprints of loved ones greeting you every time you come into the nursery. That’s where it’s at!

5. The Entertainment

It’s good to have a mix of passive and active activities to make things fun for all your guests. I say go for the things that will serve a purpose later too! Fun game or advice cards that you can keep or photo props that can be used in pictures to add to the baby book. Or my favorite, a onesie or bib decorating station. That way guests can get creative AND baby gets some cute clothes! Check these ideas out:

7. The Thank You Notes

Guests always appreciate a thoughtful thank you note. You can go simple with plain stationary, or coordinate with your other decor!

INVITEDdesignco also has coordinating thank you cards available for download. Love the gold animals!

Regardless of how extravagant you go with the decor and details, the important part is that your friends and family can come together for a good time and celebrate the parents-to-be and the new baby!

5 Unique Baby Shower Gift Ideas

You know the parents-to-be will get 3 sets of the same pack of onesies from Target at their baby shower–the same batch of onesies that every baby born that year will be wearing. Don’t get me wrong, onesies are an important staple in any new baby’s wardrobe. They’ll go through them. So go ahead and get the onesies, but also keep these unique baby shower gift ideas in mind!

1. Something Personalized

ChipolaStudio creates incredible personalized pieces with different themes that LIGHT UP (are you kidding me??)!

With price points for any budget, they offer DIY Paper Art Kits that you assemble yourself or, they also have pre-assembled framed paper light boxes that are absolutely incredible. You definitely won’t find something this special at Target!

 

2. Something Baby Needs When He’s Older

I love the wooden toys and games from SmilingTreeToys. They’re hand crafted, and many of them can be personalized.

Wooden toys have such a classic look, they can be use for nursery decor until baby is old enough to play with them.

Check out the stacking toys, and name puzzles they have available. I use the stacking toy as a photo prop whenever I can get my youngest to stop playing with it 🙂

3. Something Funny and Cute

BellaLexiBoutique has a lot of funny and cute options for baby clothes.

A funny and sweet baby bodysuit from the “otter” side is just the start. There’s a pun and cute critter for every theme! New to the Herd? This Little Piggy? She’s got you covered!

Something like this defintley won’t be a duplicate gift! These bodysuits will stand out as favorites when it’s time to get dressed (or re-dressed).

4. Something for Big Brother and Sister

And not just those cute T-shirts that say “Big Bro” and “Big Sis,” although those are great too. The role of an older sibling in the family will change dramatically when the new baby comes. Help ease them into it!

Depending on how old big brother and big sister are, TheIdeaBoxKids has some great options! They have boxes filled with wooden coins that have different questions or activities that relate to the new baby and mom’s pregnancy. It gets kids thinking about how they can be involved and what they can do to be a helpful part of the family as big changes start to occur.

Check out their Big Brother Box and Big Sister Box. And btw, they have a box of coins for every occastion!

Recommended for age 3-10.

5. A Fingerprint Guestbook Alternative

I may be biased since this is a big part of what I do as an artist, but I wouldn’t make fingerprint trees if I didn’t beleive in their sentiment!

When you’re pregnant, everything goes SO fast. Some things are terrible (morning sickness), some things are awesome (maternity leggings), but it ALL goes quick when you look back on it. And there’s so much that we forget as time passes.

A fingerprint tree helps to hold the baby shower in a freeze frame so we can remember that time, that day. All my kids have fingerprint trees framed and hung in their rooms. We often talk about the birthday party or baby shower that goes along with each. We remember not only who was there, but how Papa’s fingerprint usually ends up in a funny spot, how we came up with the theme for the tree that year, and the special things that happened that day.

Guests add their fingerprint as leaves on the tree and sign their name. Then, frame it for a keepsake and add it to the nursery decor!

Baby showers are special. If you show up to one with a fingerprint tree and a  set of ink pads, you will be the baby shower hero! And the great news is, I’ve got one for just about any theme, and any timeframe you’re working with!

Hard Copy Fingerprint Trees (usually ship within 1-3 days)

Instant Downloads you Print Yourself (ready to download and print immediately!)
