Safari Themed Shower

The letters for all my handmade decor I bought from Michael’s and the fringe paper and vases as well as tissue paper from the Dollar Tree. The baby blocks are actually gift boxes covered in fabric which I found at Wal-Mart. It was not easy finding a base for these blocks, I looked online and in many stores and decided to go with the gift boxes and they worked wonderfully.

All candy, straws, and bowls were ordered from Orientaltrading.com

I love this elephant and how cute this came out. I painted the letters and crate and hot glued this cute chubby elephant I found at Big Lots for $3. Under all the fringe is a random bow I had at home to hold everything together.

The outside of the house went perfectly with the theme. Baby Brandon was celebrated wonderfully in the jungles of Miami.

Chic Violet – Baby Shower

Baby Shower

 Baby Violets Baby Shower. All decor was handmade, I bought the cute paper decorations from an Etsy shop, but I can’t recall the name right now. When I do I will make sure to add it. I made sure to use different shades of purple. I wanted it to look fresh, modern, simple, and cute.

It was a friendly budget shower so I had to make sure it looked cute but not cheap. I bought a dozen balloons, 2 packs of 0-3 month onesies from Walmart and I ordered the purple polkadot fans from Orientaltrading.com. The plastic table cloth was bought at Party City.

Since, I was on a tight budget I made sure the cupcakes had some cute wrappers. Again, when I figure out the Etsy shop I will inform you all. “Violet,” are separate wooden letters bought at Michaels for about $.98 each and the lavender paint on it is one I’ve used for years (Craft Smart – Orchid acrylic paint) and it is wallet friendly. You can find them in many places but I got mine at Michaels for $.75.
