“Diaper Bash” Emoji Party Ideas for a Funny Emoji Baby Shower

Today I’m so excited to share some Emoji party ideas. I recently hosted an Emoji baby shower for my friend Mandy, who welcomed her second baby boy this summer. This emoji-themed party suited Mandy perfectly and was a lot of fun!

You might remember seeing Mandy’s cute pregnant belly in the Super Mom tee photos. I wanted to throw a baby shower for her, but since Mandy already had all the essential baby gear, I decided to do a “Diaper Bash” encouraging guests to help me shower her with diapers, wipes and all the other consumables that a new baby goes through quickly.

Of course you know how I love a theme, and what theme could I possibly do that centered around DIAPERS? I asked my husband this question, and he jokingly suggested the Poo Emoji. I was stunned by his brilliant idea, and when he could see the wheels in my head starting to churn, he started back pedaling. He did NOT think an Emoji Baby Shower was a great idea and was completely kidding. I assured him that it was pure genius and EXACTLY the stroke of inspiration I’d been searching for. So leaving him with a disgusted look on his face, I set feverishly to work thinking up lots of emoji party ideas!

As I was planning the party, a few people would ask me about the theme, and I would tell them it was going to be an emoji baby shower and lavishly praise my husband for suggesting such a great idea (since I knew he actually thought the whole thing was totally ridiculous LOL!) Now I present to you a Poo Emoji Baby Shower, and I think you’ll agree with me that it is completely fabulous…

I love my Heidi Swapp Lightbox Sign, and the emoji pack was perfect. I seriously think this sign was one of the highlights of the whole night. Every guest that walked in, immediately busted up laughing. It set the perfect tone for an emoji party along with these cute #HELLO and #GOODBYE Emoji Hashtag Door Signs, which are free printables that are in my Emoji Diaper Bash Kit that you can get by filling out the form below.

Emoji Party Invitations

I had planned to just send out an emoji-packed text as the invite, but ultimately I couldn’t resist creating a paper emoji party invitation. This Diaper Bash Invitation template is an instant download in the Supermom Co-Op, and you can personalize it with all your party details. I have both Emoji Birthday Party invitations and Emoji Baby Shower invitations in the Supermom Co-op so check it out!

Emoji Party Ideas: Decor

Mandy’s husband Dan is a total prankster, and he’s even gotten me a few times. Which means this Emoji baby shower was all the more perfect for Mandy. I knew Dan’s baby boy needed a Poo Emoji onesie.

Rocket Nursery with Shutterfly

Rocket or Space Nursery Ideas with #freeprintables via @PagingSupermom

Have you visited Shutterfly.com lately? They have added pillows, blankets and a whole bunch of other useful items, that you can personalize to create the perfect decor for your home. We’ve been meaning to find some time to try out a few of the new Shutterfly products, so when they asked us to design a nursery we were glad to finally have an excuse to jump in. We decided to give Rockwell’s Star-Gazer Nursery a little update.

Many of you know Rockwell’s nickname is “Rocket,” and naturally I’ve become obsessed with anything rocket related. I wanted to incorporate more rocket and space items into his nursery, but there was very little out there I liked. It seems like whenever I am decorating a room, I get an idea that is so perfect in my head, but after hours and hours of shopping I can’t find anywhere to buy the pieces I envisioned. I’m so excited that with the help of Shutterfly I can skip all that hassle.

I really love these Acrylic Photo Blocks that we’ve placed on his dresser. Also Auntie Aimée drew Rockwell some adorable space graphics, which we turned into a set of Photo Cube blocks that I know Rockwell is going to love to play with.

Books Alive – Julius, Baby of the World

Today we have the talented Melissa from the Polka Dot Chair visiting with a little basic sewing tutorial for her Books Alive project.

Hello! I’ve had so much fun following along with the Books Alive series here at Paging Supermom this summer. Even though my kids are older now, I still love a good children’s book. When my kids were little we tried to read to them as much as possible. Some nights it went well, other nights not so much.

After we had our first daughter, we struggled with fertility problems for a few years. My oldest daughter was almost six when her twin siblings were born and was quite used to being the only kid around for a while. Overall she had a great transition to sibling”hood” but there were a few bumps along the way.

Which brings us to one of my absolute favorite books, Julius, the Baby of the World by Kevin Henkes. Lilly (of Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, another AWESOME book) has a baby brother and does not adjust well to his presence. She says mean words to him while he’s sleeping and warns pregnant mothers that they will regret their baby bumps. She also spends more time than usual in her “uncooperative” chair. In the end she comes around to the idea of a baby brother, but the way that she deals with him early in the book is absolutely hilarious!

Reading this book again reminded me how it can be sometimes hard for older siblings when new babies come home. There is so much love and attention focused on the baby, and I can see why they sometimes feel left out.

I always love giving handmade baby gifts, so I thought that maybe it would be fun to give a handmade gift to a sibling instead. So, for my Books Alive project, today I’m sharing with you how to make this very simple self binding receiving blanket that’s the perfect size for a baby doll! This is a VERY simple sewing project, so simple in fact that older kids could sew one themselves with just a little bit of help.

Rocket Man First Birthday Party

This is the cutest FIRST Birthday Party for a boy. Make a High Chair Rocket for a Rocket Man First Birthday Party via @PagingSupermom #birthdayparty #firstbirthday

As is always the case with babies… time flew far too quickly and Mr. Rockwell recently turned one. Aimée shared a fun rocket worksheet last week that hinted at the party theme we chose, and you might remember the teacher appreciation door I whipped together two days after Rockwell’s party? Well today I’m excited to share all the party pictures.

This is the cutest FIRST Birthday Party for a boy. Make a High Chair Rocket for a Rocket Man First Birthday Party via @PagingSupermom #birthdayparty #firstbirthday

We often call Rockwell, “Rocket” or “Rocket Man.” I really wish you could see the looks on people’s face when Modette introduces her little brother as, “Rocket Man.” She does this EVERY time someone asks her his name. She says it very seriously with a completely straight face. Their reaction is always a very bewildered, “What?” at which time she repeats a little slower, “Rocket Man.” Then the person always looks at me wondering if I really did name my child Rocket Man. Sometimes I explain; sometimes I don’t.

Obviously I didn’t have to think very hard to decide that a space themed birthday party was in order for Rocket Man’s first birthday. Let’s start with my favorite part — the Rocket Ship High Chair that was made by covering our favorite high chair with tin foil. I cut fringe from orange tissue paper to wrap around the high chair’s tray and covered a pointy party hat with more foil for the birthday boy to wear. We hung this star background behind it all.

Baby Boy Star Gazer Nursery Reveal

Star & Space Themed Baby Boy Nursery at PagingSupermom.com

I am so over the moon about Rockwell’s Star-Gazer Nursery — it was so fun to plan and create. We love to throw parties, and designing a room is so similar to designing a party, only you get to enjoy your creation for a lot longer. Since we already had a complete nursery setup from baby Modette, the objective here was to transform the space into something fitting of a boy with as little hassle and expense as possible. I fell in love with a bunch of awesome things from The Land of Nod and everything came together just as I envisioned. I have been dying to show the room to you; so let’s get this tour started…

How to Make a Mobile

DIY Mobile Tutorial at PagingSupermom.com

I am so excited to finally share Baby Rockwell’s nursery makeover with you. We’ve had a few delays, but I just put the finishing touches on things, and I’m happy to report that Mr. R loves his room (Thank you Land of Nod!) Today I get to share his favorite detail of the moment — the Galaxy Star Mobile we created to hang above the crib.

DIY Mobile Tutorial at PagingSupermom.com

Rockwell seems to have no choice but to stare into the Star Mobile with wonder and awe, while I scurry around after Modette who is shamelessly tearing the room apart faster than I can put it together. No wonder it has been so hard to get the place photographed! (Hopefully this week!)

DIY Mobile Tutorial at PagingSupermom.com

Using leftover American Crafts Cardstock and Glitter Paper from our Glitter Academy project, and my Cricut Expression 2, I cut out 140+ of stars in about an hour (WAAAAY better than by hand!). To make a mobile you will also need a few No. 12 Screw Eyes, fishing line, and two 3/8-inch, square, wood dowels cut down to 22-inches. (If you ask, the hardware store will usually cut them down for free.)
