Sometimes there just isn’t any time to bake a cake from scratch. And sometimes your attempt at a homemade cake completely flops. And sometimes all the birthday kid really wants is bakery frosting. Whatever the reason, there’s no shame in a store-bought cake. And all it takes is a few minutes to make it look good, no skill required.

I recently threw a baby shower for my sister-in-law and, while I knew about it for months, I procrastinated as usual and put it all together in just a week’s time. Amazingly, it turned out just how I wanted it to, so here are my tips and timeline advice on throwing a great shower when you find yourself short on time:
One Month Before the Shower:
• Mail the baby shower invitations (okay, so this is the only step that should be done more than a week out).
One Week Before the Shower:
• Order florals. I ordered bay leaf and seeded eucalyptus garlands and peonies from Flower Muse. Accessibility to great florals is limited in my area so ordering online was the way to go. The quality was great and all the guests commented on how nice the garlands smelled.
• Order cookie containers to pass out as favors.
• Order any other supplies that aren’t convenient for you to buy locally, like pretty paper plates and decorations.
Two Days Before the Shower:
• Purchase food and any final supplies. The menu for this shower included turkey/bacon/pesto sandwiches, pasta and green salads, guacamole and chips, smoothies, and chocolate cake.
One Day Before the Shower:
• Food prep, which included making cookies for the favors
• Hang balloons from ceiling with fishing line and tape
Day of the Shower:
• Finish food prep
• Arrange florals
• Set out party favors
Completely doable right?! Proof that a great party doesn’t have to take loads of time.
• Baby banner, lanterns, and cake plates from Meri Meri
• Greenery garlands and peonies from Flower Muse
• Table linen fabric from Minted
• Pint containers (for cookies) on Amazon
• Letter board from Letterfolk
This simple DIY involves three of my favorite things: pretty paper, party favors, and cookies. The end product works well for a sweet takeaway for any type of party, just swap out the paper for a different pattern that coordinates with the theme.

I know you’re doubting me right now. You read the title of the post and you’re not sure any DIY project could actually have only one step. But I assure you that this one does (if you don’t count buying the supplies as a step!). I’ve got the proof after the jump.

A friend recently told me about a tradition in her daughter’s class at school: For each child’s birthday, every classmate writes down what they love above that person; then, the teacher assembles the notes into a book. I love this idea so much and think it needs to be adopted more often, don’t you think? Which is why I’m sharing these birthday postcards—print them out and send them to your loved ones with compliments aplenty.
