Make Cupcake Toppers with Your Cricut
Making cupcake toppers with your Cricut for a birthday party (even for a dog, like my Frenchie!) is super easy!

Make Centerpiece Sticks with your Cricut for Birthday Parties
Secondly, making centerpiece sticks for your party isn’t that different from cupcake toppers. You can use Centerpiece sticks that you make with your Cricut in a variety of ways.
For example, I love to use Centerpeice sticks in vases with flowers, candy dishes, coolers, food dishes, and more. It just extends your theme all throughout your party and makes it so festive and fun! Below are a few ideas for you to copy for your next birthday party!

Grab these dowels here under the centerpiece sticks section to complete your smash cake topper.
Make High Chair Banners With Your Cricut
While your child is digging into their smash cake, they’ll need a place to be on full display! Why not put them in their high chair decorated with a high chair banner? I love to make the high chair banner match the theme of the party. It just gives it such a nice touch! And again, it’s so fun (and easy!) to make a high chair banner with your Cricut. Below are a few examples of high chair banners I’ve made with my Cricut in the past. As you’ll see, you can make them in all shapes and sizes!

Make Cricut Baby Shower Decorations
Baby showers are another extremely fun way to use your Cricut to make party decorations. In fact, my best friend’s baby shower was where I learned just how much I loved making my own decorations. Aside from the usual decor, here’s a few unique ideas to make for a baby shower with your Cricut!
Next, a baby shower is a great time to honor the mom and dad-to-be! For example, make them feel special by making them chair banners to hang from where they plan to eat lunch or open presents! It adds to the theme of your shower, and gives you yet another excuse to Make Cricut Party Decorations With Your Cutting Machine! Below are a few examples!
Make Momosa Bar Essentials with Your Cricut
A “mom-osa” bar, for instance, is a super cute way to celebrate the mom-to-be. Sure, she can’t drink, but everyone else can! And if you’re doubting whether or not this is a good idea, you might want to read my blog about why you must serve alcohol at a baby shower.
And after you’ve decided a Mimosa Bar is a go, then you can create the below items with your cricut to make sure you have the cutest mimosa bar ever! Start with some juice tags that you can put on any jar or vase, and add a banner over the top of all your goodies!
Graduation Party Ideas to Make With Your Cricut
A grad party is a great time to get creative with your Cricut. You can make all kinds of cricut party decorations.
Graduation Party Banners
The first kind of graduation banner you can create, for example, is this graduation cap banner. It is unique and adorable! We did a few different styles with different bible versus and inspirational quotes.
Similarly, you can create a photo banner (similar to the first year photo banner for a first birthday!) where you can display all of the graduate’s school photos from Kindergarten through senior year! I really love this idea because it will bring back a lot of memories for the graduate and the party guests!
Graduation Party Food Tents
You can make food tents for any occasion! However, it’s really fun to do it for a grad-themed candy bar! Make these cute food tents and incorporate these graduation play-on-words! The candy bar can also serve as your favors that your guests leave with from your graduation party.
Cricut Cutting Machine Decorations for Bridal Showers, Engagement Parties, and Bachelorette Parties
Engagement Party Cricut Decorations
An engagement doesn’t necessarily seem like the most common place to have decorations, but of course I beg to differ! Therefore, I have made a few decorations for engagements in the past, and it has been so much fun! I have made and hung engagement signs at restaurants, on hotel doors, and on cars! The options are endless when you have a cricut!
Bridal Shower Cricut Decorations
A Miss to Mrs. Banner is a great way to celebrate the bride to be! You can make it in any theme with your Cricut!
Every occasion calls for favor tags! I love to make favors with your Cricut and then tie them to a favor that coordinates with the theme. You can never go wrong with Champagne!

Straw flags are another great way to put your theme on all your decorations! They are super easy to make and look adorable sticking out of your champagne glasses.
