This past weekend, my friend Laura and I hosted a baby shower for another of our friends, Mandy. She's expecting her third baby, but first boy! We were very excited, and the chance to do anything crafty was a bonus! Laura and I had a lot of fun planning, and even more fun prepping, even though we don't have any kids of our own. Mandy decided on green and brown with monkeys as the theme for the nursery, so we decided to incorporate that and make the shower a jungle theme.
A few months ago, my friend from Charleston, Carissa made these sweet decorations for her best friend's baby shower. They were adorable, and it gave us some inspiration to make these.
We made a cute little banner to welcome the little one to the world.
Then we made some cupcake toppers to brighten up the table a bit
An adorable diaper cake made a perfect center piece, and went perfectly with the jungle theme. You can find some great instructions for diaper cakes here
Here's a picture of the whole table, ready and waiting for the fun.
Now we just need this sweet little boy to make his appearance! Can't wait to find out his name! :)
