Baby Shower Centerpiece

Recently, I made several table centerpieces for my cousin's baby shower.  They came out so great I had to share.  To make the chocolate ribbon roses I used a tutorial I had designed years ago for Valentine's Day.  However, instead of using just one color ribbon I used two.

I made a total of twelve chocolate ribbon roses for each centerpiece.  I added the roses and greenery into mason jars. Helpful Hint: I used recycled mason jars.  We eat Classico Spaghetti Sauce that always comes in large mason jars.  I never throw them out I just rinse and save them.  

To finish the centerpiece I attached ribbon around the mason jar and added a sheer bow.  I made my sheer bows by using my Mini Bowdabra.  All the ribbon I used can be purchased at Bowdabra's Ribbon Crafts & Things Store.  I found the little pink bird clips at a Michael's Craft Store.  The bird's had little alligator clips that I just attached to the front of the bow.

These centerpieces not only worked great for a baby shower but I think would look great at an Anniversary Party, Wedding Reception, Sweet 16 Party, or other formal gatherings.
