Today I'm featuring the ELEPHANT BABY SHOWER I styled for my sister. It recently made it's debut in The Party Dress Magazine. You can order the magazine here, or see the digital version here.
My sister has always loved elephants...so when it came to choosing a theme for her shower I had no problem! I wanted it to be bright, cheery, modern and fun. I had a pink color scheme, and also incorporated the pink chevron stripe into the mix.
I used a lot of ribbon, painted tubs to look like elephant steps, hung a painted vintage frame, placed flowers in apothecary jars, strung painted peanuts as a backdrop, used a changing table and a high chair as part of the setup, had a 'make your own italian soda' station, tied ribbon around cute drinking glasses and more.
