Elephant baby shower ideas from elvamdesign.com

Tis the season for weddings and babies! A few weeks back I went to a baby shower for a dear friend from high school. She’s expecting her first little peanut, a girl, in May.

A few friends hosted and threw a lovely party, and I jumped at the chance to offer some DIY decorations. They had planned to do an elephant / peanut theme, and I brightened it up by incorporating bright polka dots and called it “A little peanut is on her way.” It turned out great!

I am in love with how how the cupcake toppers turned out. The little peanut makes me lol.

One of the games we played involved guessing how many chocolate covered peanuts were in the baby bottle. I made signs and little guessing cards.

The Mom-to-be loves movie and celebrity trivia, so we played Celebrity Baby Names. She got 100%! 

We also played Baby Shower Bingo while the mommy-to-be opened presents. I just had a baby in November and had a ridiculous time trying to fill out my Bingo card! Once she started opening presents, I kept thinking, “Duh!”

And while the hostesses chose to use an e-vite for this particular party, of course I put together not one but two color options for the invitation, available in pink and yellow. These invites are available on Etsy but will soon be added to my direct shop.

Guests were sent home with bags of peanuts. It’s a good idea to have some non-peanut favors for any guests with allergies.
