Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week. I never mentioned the party/shower for my son and fiancé that we hosted last Friday. It turned out great, even if it was 97 degrees when it started. Everyone enjoyed the night and were there to show love to my son and fiancé. And lavish them with gifts to help in starting their new life together. So it was all good! Speaking of parties/showers and gifts, I am so excited to tell you about the special event I attended last Wednesday in New York (I promise it has to do with parties and gifts).
I was invited to be a part of Huggies new launch called Huggies® Made by You™. What is that you ask? It is the most fantastic thing to hit diapers in a long time! Huggies is introducing its first-ever personalized diaper! You can now customize Huggies® Made by You™ by selecting a design, name, and/or monogram. You then choose a message to go inside the premium gift box. It’s that easy to deliver the ultimate baby gift. And you know I love cute personalized gifts! Also, new parents will love opening these and you will love gifting them.
The line launched with five fashion- and trend-inspired
Bright World: Celebrate summertime delights with fanciful color and playful prints.
Pattern Party: Black and white graphics with fresh pops of color are the life of this party.
Mediterranean Mama: Easy-breezy and polished with a vintage Riviera vibe-trés chic.
Little Hero: Sporty patterns, colors, and designs for every little future all-star.
Sweet Safari: Go wild with tropical prints, animal patterns, and hand-drawn silhouettes.
Each collection is adorable. And new mamas will want every single one of them. The product is made to order at Huggies MadeByYou.com, taking one to three weeks for delivery. In addition, they come 28 to a box and are only offered in size 1 (8-14 lbs.) for $75. Where were these diapers when my children were babies? At least I can gift them!
Three other bloggers were at the event with me to learn how to throw the perfect baby shower. Supreme party planner Nicole Marie, of Nicole Marie Events, was there to walk us through ideas, tips, and tricks to create the most memorable baby showers. Huggies picked one of the inspired diaper collections for each party theme and designed it for each one of us. Also, each tablescape was incredible, and Nicole Marie had put much thought into each one. Furthermore, she wanted to produce the perfect table for each themed diaper and went way beyond in my opinion!
My theme was the Sweet Safari, and it was spectacular, as you can see
from the photos below.
I’m having a Sip-and-See for a friend’s new baby in a few weeks. And I asked Nicole Marie to come to Dallas (kidding, but not) to help me with the table and decor. Also, I am not the craftiest chick, but I am hoping my shower will resemble a few things that she suggested.
This tablescape is for the Bright World diaper

Below is what Nicole put together for my Sweet Safari decorated space. How adorable is this? Look how she covered the windows on the door with the diaper pattern!
Tablecloth and cake is a diaper pattern too!
Was so happy to be with this sweet Mama, Anh from 9to5Chic blog!
What struck me during our time with the Huggies team, is how genuine their concern for newborns are. Since, they have been in the diaper business for nearly 40 years. And they have thought of every way to make this diaper (and all of their diapers) the most comfortable for a newborn babies skin. Let’s face it, a baby wears a diaper 24/7 and having a soft material against his or her skin is crucial. Consequently, the first thing we were told when we sat down with the Huggies team, was that Huggies mission is really about hugs and helping parents provide love, care, and reassurance to help their babies thrive.
I am a grandmother of two little stinkers from my oldest son and daughter in law. However, I have two other children who will hopefully contribute to that number in the future. As a result, hosting or attending a baby shower or sip-and-see is such a special time to honor the baby and the parents and finding the perfect gift is sometimes challenging. In conclusion, I recommend ordering Huggies® Made by You™ for these occasions. They are so special, and you know that they will be used! So what will I be gifting my friend at the Sip-and-See that I am hosting? Huggies® Made by You™, of course!
