Lions & Tigers & Bears...the Shower!

Before my sweet nephew was born...we threw a safari themed shower for my sis, Heather. Picking a theme for the party was an easy one! Heather had done a beautiful job of creating a safari themed nursery. It was so fun to see the shower guests get in on the theme and bring gifts that went along with it!

 CUTE tags by my friend & amazing co-hostess: Brit!
(see more details of this shower on her blog: mostlikleylate.blogspot.com)

Zebra Bites: aka. Chocolate Crackles (recipe from Martha)
I made these late the night before. One of my favorites!...
because there's chocolate involved!

African Clouds: Brit's famous meringues!


laughing hyenas: snickerdoodles
(my mom's delicious cookies!..and a big hit!)

chunky monkey: banana oatmeal...yum...made by Brit.

The Spread!
(glass jars from target, nordstroms, ikea...Labels on Jars created by Brittany!)

The Watering Hole: refreshments
(chocolate soymilk, whole milk, water...)

Little name tags for the cups:
I made these tags out of wrapping paper from The Paper Source. The tag punch is from Stampin Up.

Thanks to Megan, Steph, Krista & my Mom for helping us with the baking!

The favor bags & labels were sewn & made by Brit!

The happy prego - my sis! 
(giraffe was handmade by Tif...so cute!)

Elisa, you are a wonderful sister and friend. I felt so loved at my baby shower. I appreciate you and Brit and the huge amount of thought, time and effort you both put into making this a special night for me. The Chocolate Crackles you made were delish! Everything turned out perfect! :) Thanks!

the photos are fabulous. they almost look cartoonish.

Elisa said...

thanks! the top photo i dropped into photoshop & used the cutout filter...which posterizes the photograph when it's used. It's one of my favorite filters to add to a photo when trying to make certain elements stand out or simplify/abstract.
