Our Elephant-Themed Baby Shower

Hey, friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. We managed to go shopping and take advantage of the sales. We got the last piece of furniture we wanted for the nursery (a glider) and bought our travel system since it was around $100 off!

Speaking of our nursery, several of you have asked if we have picked out a nursery theme, and we are doing blue and gray with elephants. Our friends figured that out from our registry, and they threw us the cutest elephant-themed baby shower last month! We’re all crazy about brunch, so it was held at this great brunch place in Dallas called The Woolworth, followed by more fun at a friend’s place who lives nearby. All the details were great, but my very favorite was the host of the shower made the cutest diaper cake of an elephant riding a motorcycle. I’m so thankful for our sweet friends, who hosted such a fun party for us!

The two lovely hosts!

She also made "cupcakes" at of onesies and socks! So cute. 
Rice Krispie treats made in the shape of elephants! 
Such a delicious cake!
So excited to start this parenthood adventure with my favorite person!
Reading the sweet poem where our friends told us they put their money together and bought us a crib!

  13. Oh how fun! It was so sweet of your friends to throw this shower for you guys, and to pool their money for a larger gift. How nice! My sister did the same thing with her little one, a blue/grey nursery with elephants. My sister loooves elephants so it's perfect. Though now she's seeing all the cute dinosaur things and wants to change it up! hahah Maybe she'll settle on a dino themed 1st bday party in 6 months. heheh XO - Alexandra
