Well, I talked about this previously, but the baby shower for my sister is really soon! The last time I chatted about this, I was wavering between tricycles and elephants as the theme for the shower. Most of you all chose the elephant route, and I agreed! But, I am obsessed with bunting flags too so I knew I needed to figure out a way to incorporate them. Well, my friend Morgana offered to design the invites for me. I sent her some information and a few samples of what I was going for and she got to work. I loved the way they turned out. What do you think?
So, keeping with the theme, we’ll have an elephant cake from Dallas Affairs. And then to throw in some of the bunting, I’m making signs for each of the different food items with these bunting flags:
For those of you planning a wedding, it’s actually from a wedding invite, and there are a lot of other cute free downloadables too.
Ok, so now that you know how I’ll label the food, what will we actually be eating? Well, I’m still deciding, but I have some ideas.
Prosciutto and Fig-Spread Sandwiches (cut in cut bite-size pieces):
Endive with crab and avocado:
Veggies and dip:
Goat Cheese-Stuffed Mushrooms:
And for drinks, I’m thinking lemonade for the non-alcoholic drink and Prosecco Sangria for the ladies that want to have a good time:
It’s not blue though, does that matter? I tried to find a tasty blue drink and I came up empty-handed. Pink ones are a lot easier to come by.
And, for a parting favor for the guests, I’m thinking about elephant cookies:
I think I want to package them in little bags sealed with a mini clothespins. Sort of like this, but smaller and for a boy baby shower:
And, I would love to put them out on display in one of these adorable little suitcases:
So, what do you think? Any suggestions?
