Diaper Cake Centerpieces

I made a series of 5 smaller diaper cakes for my friend Maria who was hosting a baby shower for her sister-in-law. She used them as centerpieces for the shower, then gave them to the mom-to-be as a gift. She told me that people without babies wanted to take them home because they were so pretty! I thought it was a practical alternative to flowers for a baby shower, and much more personal. I left these unwrapped so that the party-goers could see all the goodies. I kept the decorations simple - just a few washcloth roses and silk flowers each, plus a "cake topper" of bottles, bibs & booties. (These small, 2 tier diaper cakes start at $20.)
