How I Styled A Vintage Safari Baby Shower (WATCH VIDEO)

By KristySamone — April 02, 2015

Happy Thursday Loves!

It has been such an exciting week! My dear friend Honey and her husband David had their beautiful daughter Alexandria Claire Shewbert on Monday morning 18.5” and 6.8lbs healthy!

Honey and I have been on a full adventure together. She was exactly one full trimester ahead of me. In fact, at 29 weeks I’m in the early parts of my third trimester, which means “Game On!” LOL!

All of this reminds me of  a special occasion in February. My whimsical event company, Pretty Parties and Fancy Favors, planned and hosted Honey’s baby shower. It was great fun and I had the most creative vendors to work with. I was in love with her safari animals nursery theme (especially giraffes) and alphabets. I made it my inspiration for the vintage safari event. From a beautiful giraffe cake (with chocolate chip cookie dough inside from Buttercream Bakeshop in DC) to animal cake topper from Mooses Creations to giraffe earrings for the guests, it was cute and wild. Oh, and I loved working with TopperandTwine for gold glittery toppers with the baby’s name and birthday.

She moved here several months back from Germany, so I had to add little touches as a shout out to her last hometown (like “Danke” on the favor gift tags or “Sieger” on the prizes for game winners).  “Check out my latest YouTube episode – it features how I set up Honey’s shower.

    I know this post is about the party you styled for a friend, but YOU LOOK GREAT! :) And the party looks just lovely. You did an amazing job. I might be a little bit biased because of the giraffe elements, though. ;)
