Pedicure in a Jar for Baby Shower Prizes #gift #tags #labels
My younger brother and his girlfriend are pregnant with twin girls! I am SO excited to be an Auntie and last weekend I had a blast hosting a baby shower for the two of them. Planning parties is one of my favorite activities and I love any excuse to make decorations, plan games and of course, prizes.

Since this was an all female shower, I decided to make up these simple Pedicure In A Jar kits to give away to the game winners. They were super easy and fun to put together, plus they were budget friendly. I used mason jars I already had on hand and filled them with pedicure supplies (which I purchased at my local Dollar Tree).

Pedicure in a Jar
Recipe Type: Baby Shower Favors
Author: Rachel Beyer
  • Wide mouth mason jars
  • Basic pedicure tools (I bought 5pc. sets from the Dollar Tree)
  • Nail polish (I bought enough to have two polishes per jar)
  • Cotton Rounds (1 package was enough to make 5 prizes)
  • Custom labels and tags from
  • Ribbon
  1. To assemble my prizes, I first put a small stack of cotton rounds into the bottom of each jar, and then added the pedicure tools and polishes.
  2. I decorated my jars with personalized labels and favor tags in the style Modern Museo, and then added some coordinating ribbon for the final touch.

Custom Pinback Buttons for a Baby Shower #gift #custom #party
As an extra party favor for the soon-to-be grandparents, I also ordered custom pinback buttons for them to wear during the shower. Both my mom and grandma loved wearing their “Grandma To Be” and “Great Grandma To Be” badges!
