This DIY Onesie Station is the Cutest Thing to Ever Happen to a Shower

When it comes to pulling off an elegant and gorgeous Baby Shower like this tropical infused beauty we designed with Chinet®, a fun activity for guests is usually on the agenda. We love the idea of a DIY Onesie station but wanted to step it up a notch with watercolor iron ons for onesies that the Mama-to-be would adore. Grab the instructions below and craft your own DIY Onesie Station at your next shower!


Materials

Iron transfer paper
White newborn onesies
Clothespins
White rope
Scissors
Iron & ironing board
Inkjet printer
Mini pineapple iron transfer
Mini popsicle iron transfer
Mini palms iron transfer
Hello world flamingo iron transfer
Popsicle iron transfer
Aloha pineapple iron transfer

instructions


Download & print out each transfer image onto iron transfer paper. Each transfer image has already been sized to fit the onesie and reversed, so you can print as is!


Lay out iron transfer images with scissors for guests to cut out. Have them cut out around each image, leaving as little white paper around the image as possible.


Have guests lay each transfer image (face down) on a onesie. Then they can take turns ironing (with steam off, for about 30 secs- 1min) each image on. Once the onesie has cooled, simply peel off the backing, & voila!

The Secret to Pulling Off an Effortless Baby Shower with Chinet

Throwing a fun and glamorous baby shower doesn’t have to entail gobs of hard work. In fact, it can be down right effortless with a few easy tips. One of our entertaining secrets? That would be the pretty world of the Chinet® brand. With the help of Chinet® Cut Crystal® line of coordinating products, we threw a tropical, glamorous Baby Shower and we’re dishing out all the tips to pulling off this adorable party.

The Perfect Summer Theme

Our starting point for this gorgeous shindig was a summery, tropical vibe mixed with moments of glamour and sparkle. But the best part about this shower is it works whether you’re expecting a baby boy or a baby girl. We incorporated both pink and blue with this gender-neutral idea in mind and added a sequined tablecloth in deep shimmery blue for a big dose of glam.

Perfectly Coordinated Details

And can we talk about that dessert table backdrop? It’s removable wallpaper if you can believe it and it makes such a statement. It boasts lots of impact with minimal effort. Much like the premium coordinating tableware from Chinet® Cut Crystal® line that we infused into our chic tablescape. Using pretty coordinating pieces that are so easy to cleanup leaves time for more important things like showering your guest of honor and mingling with loved ones.

Crave-able Treats

For the food, we opted for crave-able treats. Think  lots of sweet and salty combos (ahem chocolate covered potato chips we’re looking at you). And to sip on we dreamed up watermelon lemonade for the mama, and spiked it with champagne at 1 part lemonade to one part champagne for the guests. The final touch was serving it up in Chinet® Cut Crystal® stemless wineglasses.  It’s an instant crowd pleaser, trust us.

The Cutest Shower Activity

We love the idea of making onesies for the mama-to-be as a shower activity, but the standard doodling-with-fabric-markers version usually doesn’t produce the cutest onesies. We wanted to make onesies that would actually get used, so we created watercolor templates. We have an easy DIY for those complete with free printables coming up next!

Chinet® Cut Crystal® products offer a stylish and perfectly coordinated way to serve up your shower fare. From their elegant stemless wineglasses to cutlery and all the stylish plates in-between, you can check insanely good-looking disposables off your party to-do list with the help of the Chinet® brand.

A Dream Home Renovation Complete with Oversized Kitchen Island

This kitchen island is the king of all kitchen islands. Complete with a sink, four pendants floating above, four bar stools, storage and the prettiest blue hue? It is with no question, the show-stopper of this home renovation by Danielle Campbell Design Inc. And basically a dream for any entertaining-lover. View the full tour captured by Tami McInnis in The Vault!

From Danielle Campbell Design Inc.What initially started out as a kitchen consultation morphed into a whole home renovation. My clients called me in to discuss their need for a larger entertaining space. They have a family of 5 and often many guests. Their house sits horizontally on the property leaving the interior long and narrow. Great outdoor entertaining space in the summer but nothing inside during the winter.

They wanted to take out the wall between the kitchen and dining room but it still left them with a narrow floor plan. Through the design process we deemed “Version 2.0” a winning floor plan. This plan rotated the kitchen to take the full width of the house (+/-25′) and have a very large island (14′ x 4′) to accommodate extra guests and prep/ cooking surface. This eliminated the walls between original kitchen/ dining and then dining/family (family room located at the front of the house upon entry). We removed a set of doors at the entrance so that your first view in the house was a breathtaking kitchen and open entertainment area.

The client wanted a more traditional interior, but we added some personality with use of colour on the kitchen island, introducing wood tones, soft print and other earthy colours throughout the space.

Highlights of the main level renovation:
– (2) dishwashers
– Thermador appliance package
– Desk area that doubles for TV watching. TV on remote controlled lift that hides TV in upper cabinet when not in use.
– Sub-Zero wine fridge with (2) beverage drawers located in wet bar
– Stain on site solid hardwood throughout (main level and upstairs)

Once my clients were committed to this extensive main level renovation, they decided to take on renovating the upstairs as well. We reconfigured the master bedroom to include a larger bathroom, walk-in closet, sitting area with fireplace and a separate space for sleeping. Then we reworked the existing 4 bedrooms to improve closet space and functionality.

My clients were such lovely people to work with through this whole process. As a professional, it has been one of my favourite projects to date. They trusted the process of working with a Licensed Interior Designer; Information Gathering, Concept Development, Working Drawings/ Permit, Tendering, Construction. Danielle Campbell Design specializes in taking a project from concept to completion. We have a Rolodex of trusted contractors and only work with the best to ensure our client’s project is completed with quality. When clients understand and trust our process, their job is done with minor complications and has a beautiful end result.
