Earlier in April, I was lucky and honored to be asked to host and design a baby shower for one of my best friends.
She wanted a jungle animal theme for her baby boy, but didn't want it to be cheesy. I pulled a lot of ideas from this blog post, but tried to come up with ways to do things a bit cheaper.
To put my own spin on it, I was inspired by geometric animals I found on Etsy.
I designed three jungle animals, using geometric shapes: Giraffes, Lions, and Elephants.
These became part of the centerpieces. For the rest of the pieces, we had wildflowers in mason jars, basswood or cake stands, and plastic animals.
The spray painted animals cost a dollar at Walmart. The frames are from Ikea also for a dollar.
The cakes were from SusieCakes: luscious lemon and vanilla celebration.
I designed and spray painted this sign using the geometric giraffe design and the Leafy brush font from Wild Picks.
I created a mobile guestbook for guests to sign and so later the parents-to-be could hang the prayers and promises over their son. The wood cutouts were from Andrew Purnel.
I created this mason jar favors with spray painted animals also from Walmart. We put tea inside.
We also created this "We Are Wildly Excited" photo wall using streamers.
Another shot of the wall.
