When creating the shower the planner wanted to incorporate things that were practical and usable, so they purchased stuffed animals and then dressed them in baby clothes the mother would later be able use for her son!
“As an event planner, I wanted to give my sister a fabulous baby shower. She's always loved giraffes, which was the jumping off point for our theme. There were TONS of DIY projects for the shower, including the cake toppers which I sculpted from clay, the thumbprint canvas guestbook (I drew the giraffe), and the giraffe marshmallow pops (yes, I made those too!!). For the centerpieces, we wanted something practical and usable, so we purchased stuffed animals and dressed them in baby clothes – things that the baby could actually use, instead of fresh flowers. The stationery pieces were designed by Lollie J Design (an etsy vendor and artist) then printed and displayed.
