My sister and I recently had a baby shower at the Cavalry Club in Manlius, New York for my niece, Alison. Since she was having a girl my sister and I decided upon tones of pink (what else!). Alison wanted a theme of zebras, elephants and giraffes.
I used a wonderful fabric from Kravet Fabrics with animals on it for the center of the table to add color and I built off of that. The wild and unusual flowers were suggested and ordered from Whistlestop Florist in East Syracuse, New York. I used fiddles head and lime green mums among other flowers to give it a “wild” look for the animal theme. Different baby rattles hung from the flower arrangements on each table. Bursting from the napkins were paper pom poms I made. It added wonderful color to the table. Larger pom poms hung over the gift table which I situated in front of a large mirror to add color and dimension to the room.
I carried the animal fabric over to the gift table and added wonderful ribbon my sister found to the front of the table. Alison wanted a cozy room feel so I brought over my wonderful wicker chairs from my deck added a table and hung a painting of a mother and daughter on the beach over the window.
So very fun!!
