If you are visiting us from our Instagram page, you might have already seen pictures from this adorable baby shower. But if not, I am really happy you are stopping by the blog today to check it out! I am honored to have worked on this Jungle Inspired baby shower alongside our Client Gladys. She planned and hosted this intimate brunch party for her daughter and soon to be grandchild together with 40 of her closest family and friends. Since the baby’s gender is still unknown, Gladys & her daughter Kristin (the mom to be) decided to go for a theme and color palette that was unique, gender neutral and perfect for a boy or girl. So when Gladys contacted us she expressed her desire for Jungle Inspired centerpieces that both complimented the theme and had a babyish feel to it. The color palette of red, orange, chocolate brown and green was inspired by the actual baby shower’s invitation which they purchased from here. I hope you enjoy looking at the below pictures as much as we enjoyed working on this baby shower!
Tablescape and Floral Design: We designed medium sized centerpieces that had a casual, modern and playful feel. These centerpieces were arranged in galvanized metal pails and consisted of an assortment of flowers such as blue hydrangeas, gerberas, roses and green tropical foliage. To acommplish that babyish feel, our client wanted we topped each centerpiece with a either an elephant, giraffe, tiger, lion, monkey plush animals and 3 green balloons. The tables were dressed in a sandstone linen, burlap runner, green tropical leaves, two white votives and chocolate brown napkins which we embellished with a cute paper jungle animal detail. The gold chiavari chairs were detailed with a safari hat for the guests.
Diaper Cake Design: We designed a 3 tiered diaper cake covered in burlap ribbon, monkey patterned ribbon, adorned with fauxed tropical leaves and topped with an elepheant plush animal which we embellished with a red bow that hung down the cake.
Welcome Sign and Games: The printable items were designed by Tamecka S. of Honeyprint who also designed a welcome sign which we placed by the diaper cake as well as match game cards and the graphic for our very popular “mom to be” and “dad to be” pins. Tamecka understood the party’s vision and captured the theme and colors perfectly. The guests wore their safari hats, enjoy a delicious brunch menu, playing “Whats in your purse?” and “Everything Baby” Games and opening gifts.
Kristin’s guests departed the party with adorable animal cookies and candle favor combo which was provided by client.
