it's a baby shower!

so I'm planning a baby shower for my close friend... and here are the items I've made thus far! {more to come} the colors are grey and yellow with a touch of white and green to go with the theme "Elephant Alphabet." They don't know the gender, so it had to be gender neutral! But there are a ton of cute themes/color schemes these days :) The original inspiration for the theme and colors is from: stem *fabulous parties start here*/head of the table. LOVE the sites! I'll also update the details tomorrow, but the sick/recovering hubby's getting impatient to watch a movie ;)
Entered in:
caardvarks- shower card or altered item
papertake weekly- grey & yellow


:: altered tea tins to put flowers in {tins: Republic of Tea, paper: K&Co, ribbon: Michaels sheer creations}


:: made this in photoshop and placed in a nice little frame {clipart: elephant}


:: found this pattern online and altered it for these cute elephants I stitched up {ribbon: Offray, tags: colorbök, fabric: walmart}


:: one elephant went on top of the towel cake {the bottom layer is a baby blanket I made and it's wrapped in burp cloths, top layer is onsies and burp cloths {cloths: Target dollar bin, ribbons: Offray, Michaels sheer creations, clipart: elephant, tags: colorbök, fabric: walmart}


:: homemade cupcakes- trial run, getting icing consistency and batter down right {Wilton's silver sparkles and lemon yellow coloring}
