I have the sweetest new baby cousin, and it was my honor to do the shower decor for Charlie's welcoming party. His momma Abbie has an elephant theme for the nursery, so I borrowed an old set of Zoo Babies and built my decorations around the color scheme.
Suggested Color Combination:
Paper pinwheels are so easy to make, and a bunch of them in varying sizes, hot-glued to bamboo skewers, make a great centerpiece for showers. I put mine in a fun striped tin from the Designer Tin of Cards project kit, which matched perfectly.
One fun note--the buttons on the pinwheels were all from our grandmother's button box! How fun is it that I got to use them on her newest great-grandchild's baby shower? A little extra blessing on the day.
Naturally, we had "circus peanuts" for the candy (bonus that they matched the decor!) I had been saving these adorable clothespins for something special, and they were just the touch for the pinch closure on the favor boxes.
And of course, no party of mine is EVER complete without a banner!
Ready for the absolute cutest thing in this whole post... the whole BLOG, actually!? Here he is!
