|J and S|
I asked a good friend to get creative with the theme of the "Little Man" and mustaches and elephants, since J and S were planning on decorating the nursery with some pictures of Babar. And this is the amazing invitation she came up with:
|This mustache and elephant Little Man baby shower invitation turned out so well!|
So dang cute!
We held the shower at Mom K's home and it was a perfect August day. The decorations my friend made were super adorable.
|Loved how these turned out.|
We had to put up a cute bunting since we were having the party out on the deck. And a little mini bunting for the cake.
|Perfect place to have a party|
|Lemon Cream Layer Cake|
We served root beer in bottles and water in mason jars.
|Going for that old timey feeling|
Because I'm not a huge fan of baby shower games (no, I don't want to play the Guess the Poop/Candy Bar game!), we created a Make a Wish card that everyone filled out. It had wishes for the baby like "I hope you love _______" and "I hope you always ______". I hole punched and bound all the cards together and gave them to my sister-in-law after the party.

I also had my friend make these templates for an ABC book and asked everyone to write a letter of the alphabet (or two) and draw a picture for the letter. The pages were later put into a photo album and given to her.
|I particularly liked letter M of the ABC book|
My favorite part was probably the photo booth with these great zig-zag accordion streamers as a backdrop...
|So easy to make|
...and these mustaches that were cut out of foam and attached to bamboo skewers.
|Have fun with different mustaches|
And everyone got into character (lots of pics ahead!):
Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun celebrating J and S and their soon-to-come little man.
|This was an outfit that S wore when he was a baby.|
