First and foremost, thank you to my wonderful mother and Aunt for bringing my vision to life! Since my son's nursery was modern safari, we decided do the same with my baby shower theme - hello, GOLDEN SAFARI! We used the wall pictures bought for his nursery as the shower decor, which saved $ and the decor and it was multi-functional!
Wall decor links provided in his Project Nursery gallery "It's a wild world".
We searched Amazon and found plastic toy safari animals in various sizes that we then spray painted in a bronze color. Also on Amazon were giant faux palm leaves that we used on the tables, around centerpieces, as well as hung throughout the event space. What better centerpiece than a real pineapple?! It was a perfect idea because the pineapples made for the most affordable centerpieces and guests were able to take home and eat! We kept the cupcakes a simple vanilla with a white Italian buttercream and topped with an animal cracker. We displayed Ferrero Rocher chocolates with pineapple crowns on an elegant porcelain tiered dessert stand. I loved the modern black & white striped table runners! They truly complimented the gold table accents and tropical faux foliage. I remember the moment I stepped foot into my shower - my eyes were the size of saucers. I was in awe. It was everything I imagined of and more. Wish all you expecting mamas that same magical feeling at your shower!
