One cool thing about my group of friends is that we've been buddies since our middle school/high school days. We've got stories on each other that go waaaay back. Which is fun, but scary all at once! :)
Another cool thing about my friends is that quite a few of them are crafty, creative, and great party planners, which was obvious at a baby shower I attended recently.
The theme was elephants, and the colors were gray/yellow. Isn't that the perfect color palette for a gender neutral shower?
You just can't go wrong making tissue paper poufs and hanging them over the food table.
Cupcakes! The cupcake liners were purchased at T.J. Maxx. You pour the cupcake batter right in them (no more than halfway full!!!) and bake according to directions. All of the elephant cut-outs were made using a cricut...I've got to get one of those.
Party Favors! Annette (party host) found the elephant stamp at Jo Ann.
An easy decorating idea for showers is to do a clothesline with baby clothes that correspond with the nursery/party colors. Annette also did this for my pink/green birdie shower.
This was so sweet! Each attendee filled this out for the baby. Party host, Annette, will bind them all together to make a little keepsake book.
Little touches were everywhere!
The day was a success, and baby got lots of great gifts! I'll be featuring the nursery sometime soon!
I loved the "Wishes for Baby" keepsake book idea so much, that I've created printable "Wishes for Baby" cards inspired by the cards at the shower. Feel free to download them:
