NO ELEPHANTS ALLOWED BABY SHOWER



WARNING: LOTS OF PHOTOS IN THIS POST :)

The theme for Trixie's baby shower began with the image above. I spotted it on Pinterest, shared it with her and the rest is history. I started by designing the invitation around this and then began planning pinning the shower. Please enjoy the photos from my dear friend's shower.


My mamma bear helping to mount books and prints on wall.


Mommy and Daddy!

More pictures after the jump.



Thumbprint guest book (found here). This guest book is usually used for weddings but I printed Baby Alexandra on it and removed the date.


I knew this toy typewriter would come in handy one day!


Check out the how to for this adorable cake bunting here.


 Animal crackers, rock candy and cupcakes


Brownie tower and pastel mini marshmallows.


I picked up a pack of Martha Stewart circus themed stickers from Michaels and made them into toppers for the doughnut tower.



The vintage red suitcase filled with peanut favors (I will show you how I made those soon).






I printed baby pictures of the mommy and daddy to be as well as their relatives and clipped them on yarn with mini wooden clothespins.


Streamer and elephant bunting photo booth with props.






Giant balloons. There were two of these but someone popped one before we could get the photo. We were unable to get these inflated with helium but Daddy to be used a clever trick from when he was a kid and suspended them.

Sorry no photos, but I also enlarged black and white life size baby photos of Mommy and Daddy to be and lined the entry hall with them. The front door had a large image inspiration photo to direct guests to the correct apartment.
