I recently helped with some decorations for a friend's baby shower (hello Emily). The shower had an elephant theme, so it made decorating fun. Without a lot of money or time to spend on decorations, I came up with some simple printables to tie in the theme.
I made a Welcome Baby sign for the door...

... simple little label for some circus peanut favors,...
...and a few little elephant medallions that were hung over the refreshment table.
You can find the printables here: welcome baby sign, elephant party favor tags, elephant images (1,2,3). They were all printed on card stock. Super simple-just the way we like it.
I also hung a few fabric pennant banners in pinks and yellows. I picked up a few helium balloons at the zurchers (which is also where I got the pink striped bags for the favors). Rather than buying balloon weights, I tied the balloons to some mason jars that were stuffed with matching sheer fabrics-bright and cheery.
While at the shower I was able to meet Carol, a reader. It was the first time that I'd had someone recognize me from my blog. (Hello Carol!).
Thanks for reading!
