Baby Shower!!!

So I hosted my friend's baby shower {you've seen the various creations over the past month or two} and wanted to show you some photos!! It's a grey & yellow "Elephant Alphabet" theme {they don't know the gender}.

Click on any photo to bring up a larger photo!

Favor cake: inspiration from Dicut Diva. Note the little elephant sock under the cake :D It rattles too... hehe! I had cute baby rub-ons on the cake, but when I assembled them, I realized they were on the wrong side- whoops! So I used the Hero Arts baby feet stamp on the tops.
I handmade the elephant on top- loved them! There's another on top of the diaper cake below.

Made this in Photoshop. Framed it with a simple white fram from Michaels. Original inspiration found on stem parties.

The guestbook, where guests can leave words of wisdom for the mamma-to-be, and if you follow my blog, you've already seen it many times {here} and {here} and {here}

Game cards I made up: Baby Bingo {where you fill in with items you think each guest gave as a gift} and Baby Word Scramble. Just whipped these up super quick in Word.

Towel cake- top layer is onesies surrounded with burp cloths, bottom is a baby blanket I made {see post here} surrounded by burp cloths. Here's the second elephant I sewed, so cute :)

Baby letters I found in a discount bin at Michaels- painted them up in the party colors

Cupcakes made from scratch- third ever attempt at doing fancy icing with a piping bag :D dyed the icing deep yellow and sprinkled with grey sugar glitter

Altered tea tins, we stuck a few gerber daisies in each and guests got to bring them home as door prizes!
