While 2018 brought the end of 6+ weddings each year, 2019 is bringing babies! I kicked off the year helping host a baby shower for my friend & neighbor. Banners have become my go-to custom party decor, so I cranked one out the Saturday before the new year so I’d be ready for the shower.

What you’ll need:
- 1-2 pieces of card stock for each color in the background
- 2 pieces 12″x12″ card stock
- Cricut Maker
- Spatula tool
Margo’s nursery is coral, teal and gold with some geometric accents, so we got invitations to match that and I wanted to pull all of that into the banner I was making.
Using my “Bride to Be” banner as a template, I did a lot of slicing to create 5 different banner pieces that had a solid mint background, angled piece in coral and white on top. I then sliced a letter from each white piece for the baby’s name, Tezza.
Next, I cut everything out on the various pieces of card stock, then glued the layers together. The last step was to thread some white ribbon through the pieces to create the banner!
I even used the scrap letters to create a little cake topper by gluing them to twine and tying it around 2 wooden skewers. We ended up putting these in some vases on the food table.
I also accented my easel letter board with paper flowers and created some food place cards based off the banner design to tie it all together.
Want to customize your own geometric banner? You can find the project on Design Space here. Duplicate the pieces for all the letters in your banner and you’ll just need to write, cut or slice your own letters on top! You can also find my food card project here.
Can’t wait for baby Tezza to arrive in February!
