Baby Shower Favors

My son and his wife are expecting their first child the beginning of June. *grin* There will be a baby shower on April 19th and I was asked if I would make the baby shower favors. I am thrilled to be asked to do this for my DDIL and little "Melanie" They are expecting a girl.
I ordered these baby shoe templates from creativecutsandmore and they arrived yesterday (Saturday).
So of course I've started working on them like a good grammy should. *grin*
Here's the deal...I'm not sure if these shoes look "cute" enough and I need your suggestions.
I'm doing 15 pink and 15 light purple. The pink shoe is stamped with SU! Mauve Mist and the light purple with SU! Eggplant Envy. The flowers on the eggplant envy have been stamped off once. I'm using SU! Welcome Little One set which is retired. I added pink and lavender ribbon along the sole edge and added pink/lavender flower brads for the button. I plan on adding pink crinkled filler then adding a small cello bag of pink M&M's tie in coordinating ribbon. Should I stamp the flower on the strap or leave it plain? Do you think this will be enough or should I add something more in the way of bling/decoration to the baby shoe? I'm sooo confused! LOL Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks for stopping by!

Decorate the strap. Either way, they are beautiful and unique. My new great niece will have a shower to be proud of. Aunt Grace

These are adorable. I vote to leave the strap plain. Once you fill it with the crinkle stuff and M&M'sI think it have all it needs.

I would leave it plain. I think they are SUPER CUTE!!!! The best part of them is the ribbon around the bottom of the shoe. They look so real in the picture.
P.S. Congrats Grandma!!!!
