One of my best friends is expecting! She is due in March and her baby shower was a few weeks ago. Her family threw the party but I was able to help out by planning some cute little favors. The theme was the jungle. Her mom, sister, and sister-in-laws did a great job of decorating. Here are a few highlights.
Carina’s mom spent a few weeks of January in Africa on a missions’ trip so this theme was very fitting for her. She made this adorable diaper cake with a resident monkey in the tree.
This giraffe was a big hit with the little girls at the shower. He was pretty
abused loved as a punching bag, animal to ride, and an animal to carry around while a bunch of little girls chase you. We did manage to steal him for about 30 seconds to get a picture.
At the end of a great afternoon everyone was sent home with a boxful of little jungle animals in the form of animal crackers. These boxes remind me of my childhood. I fancied them up a little with a bow made of leftover ribbon from my wedding and added a note to the top that said “We’re not even lion. Thanks for celebrating the upcoming arrival of baby Zachary with us!”
