Real Baby Shower: Twin Zebras

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

I met Michelle Knox of I DO invitations by michelle at the Fabulous HWTM Wonderlandia Launch Party in San Diego and was thrilled to hear she had a baby shower for Bump Smitten. I was even more excited when I received these fun pictures taken by Chelsea Corinne Photography. Love the mix of bright pinks and greens with lots of zebra print. Super CUTE!!!!

From Michelle... I styled a twin girls baby shower for my cousin. So fun and a little different. Zebra themed parties are definitely popular, but you don't see them too often for baby showers. I knew I wanted to do something different than the traditional pastels. A special thanks to Chelsea of Chelsea Corinne Photography for taking these fabulous photos.

It was a couples shower with around 75 guests held outside on a very warm day - but the sun was shining so that's all that matters :)

First, the SWEETS. I styled a full spread o' sweets inside filled with the most PERFECT sugar cookies from The Cookie Jar (I mean seriously, have you seen anything cuter?!) and yummy cake pops from Lillycakes. I made the cupcakes and decorated with cupcake toppers to match the theme. Ribbon is my favorite; it just adds so much -- as you can tell, I used it around many of the decor pieces and my go-to cupcake stand. A few of the hostesses made some yummy cookies and whoopie pies for some additional yummy sweets. I found the pink and lime mirrors at Hobby Lobby that I used as the cookie platters. Super cute! I created a custom banner that hung along the front of the table and used a zebra patterned fabric I picked up from Hobby Lobby as well.
