Emily and I got to host a baby shower for Gavin and Jennie! Yay for babies, and yay for parties =) It was a blast, and I think they enjoyed it a lot! They are doing a jungle/giraffe theme in their nursery, so of course I went with lots of animal stuff for the decorations! I got animal print lanterns, made colorful tissue paper poms, and got a green feather tree for a centerpiece.

=)  I love the feather tree and giraffe =)

My sister made awesome cupcakes for us, lemon and chocolate with either chocolate ganache or mint chocolate. They were spectacular! Stacey was just grabbing a cupcake, intending to take it in the other room, but after licking the icing said she had to stop right then and eat it =) I had the lemon and it was worth every calorie! Serenity ate two! Jennie said she loved the mint chocolate especially. The rest of the food was all tropical to match the decor, with monkey bread, tropical fruit tray, and shrimp pineapple kabobs.

We had lots of craft options. I got a few onesies and hats for people to decorate, and supplies to either color with fabric markers or applique. Jennie’s family really got into this and made some completely adorable things! They are all crafty like she is =)

We also made books for the baby! We made a counting book, a color book, and a felt texture book. We didn’t finish the last book or the fleece blankets, but it was all fun and kept us busy all afternoon =)
