Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Pink & Green Monkey Themed Baby Shower

This pink and green monkey themed baby shower is just too fun! I can't stop smiling when I look at these photos. Photographer Christina Diane of Christina Diane Weddings planned this shower for her best friend Jacquelyn. The design was inspired by the custom pink and green monkey invitation by Elizabeth Creative Studio. Matching garlands, signage, labels, note cards, game cards, and a custom popcorn box were designed to coordinate. If you love that popcorn box, you are in luck, because Elizabeth Creative Studio generously provided us with the free printable for you to use (click here to download!). I love the "ready to pop" title!

There is more handmade goodness in the cake pops and the homemade sugar scrub favors. Such a thoughtful gift! They wanted the favor not only to give thanks for being in her life and supporting her, but to be actually useful for guests. Also check out the super fun DIY photobooth! Christina created a backdrop with fabric, and used a Fuji Instax to take the photos. See even more details in the additional photos in the gallery.
