A Precious Moments theme party works well for baby showers and baby birthday parties. Look to pictures of Precious Moments artwork to inspire your decorations. Precious Moments uses pastel colors and gentle animals such as lambs in its artwork. Angels are prominent in Precious Moments themes, too. Throw a Precious Moments party to celebrate a little angel special to you.
Clouds and Stars
Find cloud and star decorations or make your own from felt and cotton to decorate the party space. Hang clouds and stars from the ceiling. Light blue, pink, green and yellow streamers can be hung on the ceiling to connect the clouds and stars. Use miniature cloud and star cutouts to decorate the table. Sprinkle them around pastel-colored tulle. The pastel tulle can act as a table runner.
Precious Moments figurines can be expensive, but you could purchase a figurine or two and place them on a small, round mirror to create a centerpiece. The centerpiece then can be given to the mother-to-be as an extra gift or to the birthday girl to start her figurine collection. Buy a larger, stuffed Precious Moments doll as a centerpiece to give to the mother-to-be or the little one.
Finding paper dinnerware with Precious Moments designs is not difficult. Many party supply stores and online sites such as eBay will carry Precious Moments dinner plates, cake plates and cups. Look for Precious Moments tablecloths, too. If you decide to forgo specific Precious Moments dinnerware, buy plain paper dinnerware in coordinating colors. Choose pastel colors such as baby pink, baby blue, light green or light yellow. Forks, knives, spoons and cups also can be found in these colors.
Balloons are an easy and inexpensive way to spruce up a party. Find balloons with a Precious Moments design at party supply stores. Combine a Precious Moments mylar balloon with latex balloons in pastel shades to create balloon bouquets to anchor to chairs or use as centerpieces.
If you are throwing a Precious Moments baby shower, use pictures from the mother-to-be's pregnancy to fit the Precious Moments theme. If she has taken belly pictures every month, ask for copies and display them in chronological order on a poster board. If she had professional maternity pictures done, display them in pretty frames. The same can be done for a baby's first birthday, using one photo from each month of the baby's life. Each photo would symbolize a precious moment in the life of the mother-to-be or baby. You could decorate the poster with Precious Moments stickers or decals surrounding the photographs.
Precious Moments Cake
If you want to make your own cake with a Precious Moments theme, look for Precious Moments cake toppers. You can make a tiered cake and place your Precious Moments topper on the top. Use edible flower or butterfly decorations from your local bakery to dress up your tiered cake. If you would rather have a shaped cake, look for a Precious Moments themed cake pan.
