This was my first baby shower. I was really, really excited when I was asked to help with this “little party”.

The Mommy-to-be had not really decided on her nursery theme or anything so we brainstormed and came up with a theme that we found cute/fun.  We knew it was a girl and the committee decided one this momma/baby elephant theme and for the banner “baby girl” as mom didn’t have a name decided on either 🙂

The shower was two parts, one part for all the women in our group which consisted of games and lunch then in the afternoon we joined again with the entire group to include the men, so we had a luncheon for the women and desert afterwards in the office to include the men.

Using Adobe illustrator, I put together the cut files for the text, elephant elements, etc for the banner.

for for the banner, I went to Michaels and spent probably two hours up and down the paper isle and finally went with one of the scrapbook paper books that had a girl baby theme.  I went home and spent another few hours Planning out the paper arrangement for the banner… I went into OCD overdrive with this one LOL

To assemble the banner I used raised adhesive dots and pink ribbon to string it all together

The cake totally matched the invitations and party theme: adorbs:

I look forward to doing more of these!!
