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.

Yellow and Turquoise Elephant Baby Shower

This yellow and turquoise baby shower with an elephant theme was designed with love by Marci Gerlach of Entwined Design for her good friend Jennifer. The elephant theme was inspired by the little one's future nursery. Entwined Design also designed the gorgeous floral arrangements made of white hydrangea, Grand Prix Roses and clusters of yellow Cymbidium orchids. For an extra special touch, orchids were also hung under the umbrella centerpieces. Erin of Events Taylor Made custom made linens to match the umbrellas and also provided the lovely place settings, tables, and chairs. Guests could enjoy the adorable elephant cake, created with love by grandma-to-be and great grandma-to-be, along with buttercream frosted cupcakes topped with a handmade elephant by April Cenora of Events Inspired by Love. April also assisted with creating several of the paper goods for the shower, including the lovely banners and mommy and daddy chair signs. Xanadu Dumert Photography captured all of the details, and you can see more of those photos by visiting the full gallery!
