Show & Tell baby shower

So one of my friends and coworkers was having her first baby and we were so super excited!!!
I got inspiration from a invite my coworker found on etsy, the theme of blues and grays and cute little elephants set the tone for the rest of the cuteness to come!

I wanted to do cut out of the elephant holding balloons to put on the glass door as you entered the shower.

here's my one and only not so great pic

My coworkers wanted to do the "she's about to pop" and have popcorn as a snack which apparently is really popular, I'm not up on the latest baby shower trends ;)  Here's my little sign for the popcorn snacks.

I also made a banner in the same colors as the invite alternating polka dot and chevron print.

 I also wanted to some happy drawings for the little guy's bedroom. We knew what colors she was going to decorate in and what she was going to name him, so that give me something to work with.

Of course I kept with the elephant theme and the polka dots and chevron prints. I have been thinking about changing it some and putting a different version in my shop. Isaiah get's his own special version :)

My friend Jenn came up with awesome new pattern and Isaiah was the first recipient of her adorable letter pattern in grays and blues of course :) It came out so cute, I can't wait to see a picture of him crawling around on it Yay! You might remember a previous post where she made initial pillows.
 Jenn has been working really hard and now she has her pattern available per letter or the whole alphabet!!! I'm so proud of her hard work and ingenuity. Check out her patterns here

look at all those awesome colors and patterns

We worked hard to give our friend an adorable shower and gifts made for people you care about are always so fun and special! It definitely has got me thinking about doing more party related designs, you know: showers and invites and weddings and cute baby decor items to celebrate and encapsulate the cuteness. What projects are you working on lately?
