Baby Shower Progress!

I thought I'd share a few photos of the "Lavender Elephants" baby shower decor so far! :o)

When I looked for supplies I completely forgot to look in my regular fabric stash(duh.) so I discovered some cute polka-dot that I mixed with the nylon chiffon to make no sew flowers (my tutorial HERE) with the buttons in the middle for a cute little garland.

Then I found some egg-shaped paper doilies left over from the Easter potluck! They were a super bright purple, but when I flipped them over they were just right. So I printed out an elephant clip art and traced it onto purple paper and glued on sparkly gem eyes and a tiny silk flower. I think they turned out cute! And free, yay!


You know, working with all this lavender may have changed my mind about purple just a little bit. It's really kind of pretty! :O)

So the shower is tomorrow.
Ha.
As in, the day after today.

...I have a lot of work to do!

Wish me luck!
Love,
Disney

  3. elephants have tails, you should add tails to the. They are super cute and everything, but they would be really super cute with small tails.

  9. Nooooo! Don't go over to the dark (purple) side Disney!!!! You must stay strong. You're probably just not thinking straight after coming up with and making all those adorably creative decorations :)

  12. What a clever way to tone down the too-bright purple on the doilies! I'm going to have to look at the backs of things now! The garlands are amazink!

  13. I'm glad you rethought it, super cute for a shower! If I have a girl someday purple might have to be the color for my shower! Too bad no dark royal purple. That's my fav.

  19. :( I just remembered a cute elephant invitation I made for a friends baby shower. I wrote out the invitation following the outline of an elephant, then just drew in an eye, ear and tail. Hope that makes sense - so the writing was the frame to the elephant - I then scanned it and printed it on pretty lilac paper. One of my better invitations.
