I did lots of research online for ideas to pull this off but I struggled with what everything was going to cost to make it as amazing as the parties I found google searching. So I took some of their ideas and made them my own to fit my $200 budget (for 16 guests).
Zazzle.com - $1.20 an invite.
The invitation is a great way to get the rest of the colors and theme down. So if you are stumped on a the direction you want the theme to go - look through invitations for inspiration.
Next on my list was the menu. I found some great food ideas at GreyGrey Designs. So with their help I began planning my menu.
Lisa's shower featured Jungle Juice, Lion Meat (sub sandwiches), Gorilla Grapes, Hungry, Hungry Hippo Hummus, Sticky Zebras (Zebra Cakes), Tiger Tails (Cheetos spirals), Giraffe Grass (salad), Animal Crackers and Animal Cakes (cup cakes). I also made little safari faced chocolates.
|Plates and napkins found at Shindigz.com.|
Another way I brought the animal print in was to line the tables with animal print ribbons.
PartyCheap.com as well as a cute blow up giraffe that was on the front porch. Each box had a package of Animal Crackers inside.
|Added touch - I put the mom-to-be's picture on the mantle.|
Thank you Lisa for letting me feature your shower!
