Tying a theme together from start to finish is not always an easy task. With an adorable invitation showcasing a baby elephant riding in a hot air balloon, the stage was set for a wonderfully themed shower. Guests arrived to see this theme carried throughout the decorations. I love that hot air balloons were used as the centerpiece on each table. They were an amazing DIY made from kraft-colored Chinese take-out boxes, which made up the balloon baskets that plush elephants rode in. The creativity doesn’t end there! Custom “BABYG” Bingo cards with little hot air balloon free spaces served as a shower game. Aren’t the white gable boxes tied up with string and a hot air balloon tag adorable? A focal point wall was a large part of the décor. Oversized baskets were turned into large hot air balloons, which not only added an amazing focus to the room, but also functioned as the gift depository. Cute baby elephants, color coordinating tissue poms and letters spelling out “baby” were a fun addition.

What mother-to-be wouldn’t appreciate well-wishes for the new adventure to come? A darling wish station was set up with supplies for writing mom-to-be a sweet note. This is a great way to engage the guests and also provide a treasured keepsake for the guest of honor.

As many stylists will tell you, the highlight of an event is often the dessert table. Keeping to their theme, an impressive cake served as the centerpiece of the table. Chickadee Hill Cakes designed this gorgeous 3-tiered cake. Don’t the soft ruffled grey petals remind you of little elephant ears? Precious.

There is something simply beautiful about a clean white tablecloth, dressed up with a printable bunting and white platters filled with stunning, handmade treats. From sky blue cake pops to perfect hot air balloon sugar cookies to cupcakes embellished with custom printable toppers, there was something to satisfy any sweet tooth. Don’t you just love the cute beverages guests had to choose from with darling wrappers and festive straw flags? Little details add so much pizzazz.
