Elephant Baby Shower Brunch

Last week I finally finished the green and blue elephant invitations I had been working on for Amy. She and some friends in Seattle are hosting a baby shower brunch for a friend. I wanted to design something personal, and a little different from the usual baby shower invite. So I thought it would be nice to incorporate a theme I knew she would like. Since of course she picked it out! I had Amy email me a picture of the bedding for the nursery. Below is a picture of the gorgeous linens found at Babies R Us. The bedding is an adorable elephant theme called Emory, by CoCaLo. To go along with the invite, I sent her some decoration and food ideas also. Below is a mood board I put together with different inspirations found on the world wide web! Starting at the top left moving clockwise:
*These great outdoor decorating ideas are from an article in Country Living
*I thought the cute drink labels were festive and easy to make. I found these on a great blog called Accent The Party. This is definitely one to add to your favs.
*The tissue pom poms are super easy to make. There are instructions and photos on
*You can find these great elephant wall sticker ideas at WordsWithMelissa
*Simple, and cheap, paper lanterns are available at
*Easy and elegant blue and green food ideas are at
*And last but not least, the light green polka dotted favor boxes tied with adorable coordinating ribbons found at Tastefully Entertaining.[via flickr user Northern Transplant]


  1. I just found your blog and I LOVE these invitations. DO you sell them? I am throwing a shower for my best friend and she is using similar bedding in her nursery.

  2. Emilee, I would be happy to talk to you about this invitation design... Please email me at

    Thanks, Tina

  3. Hi! I'm hosting a baby shower for a good friend and she has to have a blue (really turquoise) drink. It has to be non alchoholic. What type of drink did you serve. You did a wonderful job, everything looks so pretty!


    Check out this link! There is a ton of blue drink recipes! I didn't actually host this shower, so I don't know what drink she used. This was just an inspiration board I put together for a friend! :-)

  5. Thanks for the LINK!
