There’s a Peanut in my Belly


We had been planning the shower for weeks -- maybe even months!


We made/designed our own printables, banners (dots & flags). We found elephants in the clearance bin from Michaels. We bought lots of peanuts, and kettle corn, and lots of fun circus finger foods, like churros, cotton candy and mini corn dogs.


My sister scrambled up until the last second decorating, cooking and setting up. But all in all she pulled it off, and it was an adorable Peanut in My Belly/ Circus Themed baby shower!
