Today I’m featuring the ELEPHANT BABY SHOWER I styled for my sister.

My sister has always loved elephants…so when it came to choosing a theme for her shower I had no problem! I wanted it to be bright, cheery, modern and fun. I had a pink color scheme, and also incorporated the pink chevron stripe into the mix.

I used a lot of ribbon, painted tubs to look like elephant steps, hung a painted vintage frame, placed flowers in apothecary jars, strung painted peanuts as a backdrop, used a changing table and a high chair as part of the setup, had a ‘make your own italian soda’ station, tied ribbon around cute drinking glasses and more.
