Real Baby Shower: Elephants on Parade

Monday, October 24, 2011

Told you I'd be back with more fabulousness from Kirstin of kojo Designs... And this is just one of many I'll be sharing in the upcoming weeks! Love all the bright yellow balloons, buntings, ribbon and signs along with the gray and white accents. The "Little Peanut" theme and decorations are SUPER CUTE! PLUS... the circus peanuts in etched glasses used as favors is another wonderful idea.

From Kirstin... There was lots of yellow, white and gray with little circus-y touches- a yellow balloon garland, a mini big top hovering over the favor table, a "Welcome Little Peanut" pom pom garland, a ribbon bedecked drink stand, a parading elephants wreath, and a yellow flag bunting.

FAIR FOOD MENU The guests of honor are foodies, so we threw a ton of our shower efforts into the menu! We wanted to be sure there was lots of yumminess balanced by some healthier fare since the mama-to-be loves healthy food. With that in mind, all of the food could fit into one of two categories- "Classic Fair Food," or "Food on a Stick."

The menu included: Chicken Veggie Scewers / Chicago Dogs / Fried Pickles with Aioli / Kettle Corn / Jalapeno Poppers / Grilled Corn / Fruit Scewers / Tomato-Basil-Mozzarella Scewers / Lamars Donuts (not fried like you'd find at the fair, though) / Funnel Cakes / Various sweets on the treat table

WATERING HOLE The all-yellow drink station (or "Watering Hole") was stocked with Apple and Clementine Izzes, San Pellegrinos, Peach Lemonade, Yellow Sobes, and Beer. The elephants on parade bottle wrappers added an extra pop of yellow, as did their ribbon bedecked stand.

FAVORS The elephants on parade favors were glasses etched with buntings and garlands, filled with Circus Peanut candies. The sign read, "raise a glass in celebration of the little peanut!" Though, the mini big top hovering around the favor table was probably as much of a hit as the favors themselves (especially with the pint-sized guests).
