PARTY DETAILS, as told by Elizabeth

“Since the mommy-to-be didn’t know if she was having a girl or boy, I decided to go with a yellow and gray color palette. And since the nursery had an animal theme, I thought it would be cute to bring in the elephant (and they happen to be gray too…)

For the party decor, I was determined to make the paper mobiles created by Jordan Ferney from Oh Happy Day. Jordan used multicolored vellum, but since I didn’t have easy access to lots of vellum — I decided to go with cardstock paper from the Paper-Source. Please visit Project Wedding  for Jordan’s step-by-step instructions. Get out your sewing machine!!

I also made a few pom poms to add some more yellow in the room. In hindsight, I definitely should have made more!

The first activity we came up with was a wishing tree — a place where the guests could leave wishes and advice for the mommy-to-be. We provided little cards (of course, in the same theme) and little clothespins to attach to the branches. I loved reading everyone’s advice! The next activity was a animal themed guessing game. Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun trying to figure out the correct answers. They were hard!

Next, I put together a photobooth backdrop using fabric and streamers (with different shades of yellow and patterns) and lots and lots of tape. My inspiration came from SmileBooth. They are insanely creative and have one-of-a-kind backdrops and props! The co-hosts, Tracey & Jen collected all the advice cards and photobooth pictures to make a book for the mommy-to-be. Adorable! What a special gift.

Lastly, I put together a small candy bar filled with yellow rock candy, Lemonheads, Jelly Bellies, M&m’s, yogurt covered pretzels and animal crackers. The guests got to leave with a small bag of goodies wrapped with yellow ribbon and a small elephant attached.

All-in-all it was a wonderful baby shower and everyone had a lovely time. Thanks Jen and Tracy for all your help! And a special thanks to Tracy’s husband for the AMAZING truffle mac & cheese!”
