Several weeks ago now, Gaya, Kakhi, Ginny and I threw a baby shower for our good friend Shauna and her on-the-way baby boy, Jack. We had a ball planning, cooking and decorating. Shauna had mentioned that she liked a safari feel for a boy, so we went with it! There are some really cute safari ideas out there.
I already had our house decorated for Christmas, so we augmented with safari accents. I think it turned out really cute! We ordered these safari animals on sticks from Etsy and used them in the wreath on the front door, garland and a few of the food items.
We stole an idea from a baby shower that had been thrown for me in Brevard and added baby items (sunglasses, rubber duck, socks, baby mittens, etc) to the garland on the stairs.
Shauna opened her presents in front of the fireplace, which we dressed with the most adorable tie onesies, also from Etsy.
Of course I didn't take a picture of the completed food table, but we set the carnival-themed food up on the kitchen island and had corn dog muffins, mini caprese skewers, individual popcorn bags, fruit skewers and pimento cheese sandwiches.
The popcorn turned out so cute!
The dessert table was fun, complete with bootie petit fours from Henri's, circus peanuts, oreo truffles and adorable cookie favors made by Linsey of The HunniePot.
Now we can't wait to meet Jack in a few short weeks!
